July 29th, 2015

Every Wednesday, I gather up and share some fun blog posts from around the Internet. This week, we start things off by heading down under to visit with Darrell Milton. While he may not be a fancy baker by trade, he decided to make a custom R2-D2 birthday cake for his son. He documented the […]

What’s Up Wednesdays: The Best Part of Waking Up

July 22nd, 2015

I’ve never been a morning person and perhaps that’s part of the reason why I embarked on this freelance journey nearly a full decade ago. After becoming a father, however, everything changed and I’ve been forced to alter my sleep routine. If you’re like me or you’re otherwise undergoing similar life changes, you may want […]

July 15th, 2015

Kicking off this week’s speedlink, Scott Behson was recently invited to appear on MSNBC to talk about parental leave for working dads.

This week’s speedlink session has to do with moving forward and taking the next step. Starting things off, Ray Ebersole has made a decision about his approach to blogging moving forward. The education and technology blog is going to be focused more on — you guessed it — education and technology, as well as coding, […]

What’s Up Wednesdays: Jurassic Behavior

June 17th, 2015

This past weekend, Star-Lord demonstrated his “raptor whisperer” skills to the tune of over half a billion dollars. To say that Jurassic World has generated some serious buzz would be an understatement. Celebrating our love for all things prehistoric, The Good Men Project collected up some great images of dads and their kids recreating classic […]

What’s Up Wednesdays: Evolution

June 10th, 2015

As has become a tradition around these parts for the better part of eight years, it’s time for another speedlink here on Beyond the Rhetoric. We start off with Buzz Bishop describing how his 8-year-old son recently got into a heated debate over evolution and religion with one of his best friends. The conversation wasn’t […]
