Thank you so much guys for making 2014 a GREAT year for Papidaddy Dot Com. (this post was updated after publication to reflect a more accurate list)
How could it not be a great year when it’s the beginning of a great journey? So much to do, so much fun. I’m very excited about 2015. You can feel it in the air, it’s the year of change. We’ve had a crappy last decade in many regards.
Economy has been in the crapper, then better, then wobbly again. Conflicts amongst nations and peoples doesn’t seem to subside. There is still hunger in the world, and over half of the population doesn’t have more than a dollar to live on per day. Those are some bleak facts.
Makes you wonder why are we doing all this?
Well, to keep growing and to keep going. We make the best of what we have and hopefully we can make a difference in other people’s lives as well.

We can change the world at large so long as we start at home. Even the biggest feats in human history are broken down into individual tiny tasks that need to be completed. Tasks that you and I can undertake.
Papidaddy is here to help. The goal with this website is to help you be a better parent and live a better life. The articles I and the other authors write hopefully bring you new actionable knowledge or a relief from the monotony of every day life. I seek to inform you or entertain you.
And that leads me to my next thing.
Giving out information is great. I have learned so much from free information available online, but we often take that information for granted. We think of it as a utility that is there for our benefit; and in many ways it is. But today I want to recognize those people that recognize the efforts I put forth to bring you quality content.
These are the commentators, the people closest to the blog. The people that take the time to give me feedback, encourage me or just tell me that I’m wrong. I also appreciate everyone that read and participate in the Papidaddy ecosystem the blog, and every one of you that likes the posts and shares them on Twitter and Google and everywhere else. I could not have done it without you!
But without further ado I’d like to introduce you to the top 10 commentators of 2014.
