Hello, and welcome to the first post of My name is Matt Tilmann, the creator of this site and blog. For more about my hopes and visions for the site, I would invite you to check out the About page. In the meantime, I have added a variety of posts and topics below to get things started. This welcome post will stay stickied to the top of the blog for now as things get moving along.

Ultimately this site will evolve. Sometimes you have to start small to make a difference. In the featured image is the state stone of Michigan, the Petoskey stone. It’s gorgeous if you haven’t had the chance to see one in person yet. Looking closer, I love how it also stands out among similar stones on the beach. That’s what I hope for to become. A unique site and blog that can stand out among the rest.

I want this to become an area that all can come to for information, helpful tips, commentary, and articles I deem interesting that I feel could be helpful in areas I enjoy: parenting, fatherhood, personal finance, cooking, and more. I also enjoy the creative escape of blogging and writing.

However, especially in the world of parenting, I know we all have LOTS to offer. How many countless videos are out there on YouTube, TikTok, and more of life hacks and parenting tips? I believe that we all have our gifts to offer. I also know for some, parents weren’t always present to be able to offer up “life hacks,” so I want this to become a hub for that information. If you’re interested in writing a guest post in that area that you feel would be helpful for the Mitten Dad community, I want to hear about it, so please be sure to reach out via the Contact page!

Thank you again for your time and for checking out the site!
