I spend a lot of time on the Internet researching men’s issues for the articles I write on fatherhood and other issues of interest to men. I have scoured hundreds of sites that aggregate news articles from across the Internet, and I have a list of my top ten go-to web pages to find the latest information of interest to men. Depending on a father’s interests, I think all of these are worth exploring and bookmarking for men.

Men’s E-News is one of my must-read sites if I want to keep up on the world news impacting men and fathers. The staff there scour the web for articles and information helpful to men. Articles fall into topics like fatherhood and family, health and fitness, issues and perspective and entertainment and sports. They also have links to excellent books and online resources for men about men’s and fathers’ issues. I subscribe to their email newsletter as well, which keeps me up to date on the issues... they cover, including things like fathers’ rights, which often aren’t covered in the “mainstream media.”

Askmen.com has come to be known as a go-to site for information and resources for men. Their news page is a treasure trove of information for men and fathers. They have subpages with current news and information related to tech, entertainment, health and sports, relationships, cars, fashion, power and money and fine living. There is a lot of political commentary on the issues of the day, advice on making job changes, investment ideas and more. Their information about parenting specifically is... quite light, but the other resources there make it worth investigating for fathers.

Men’s News Daily bills itself as the “daily dose of counter-theory,” and it lives up to that billing. If you are looking for the traditional - read fluff - news aggregator, then Men’s News Daily is not for you. But it you want to read provocative and thoughtful articles from across the Internet of interest to men, this is a great site. Recent articles as of this writing debunk the investment myths around gold and precious metals, offer political insights into current election campaigns, discuss... the economics of South America, current happenings in the world of retail, and more. It can be a little esoteric and random but in a good way. It reminds me a little bit of NPR with a focus on issues of interest to men.

If you have an interest in activism and advocacy, Men’s Activism is a site you will want to bookmark and return to frequently. This site can be a little edgy, particularly on issues like fathers’ rights. They are decidedly pro-male and are not shy at all about it. They don’t hesitate to call out companies or organizations for male-bashing, and they even host a boycott list of companies that have unabashedly targeted males and used males in advertising in a negative way. If you sign up for an... account, you can share articles with them of interest to men’s activists which they will then post on their site. They also accept guest commentaries.Continue to 5 of 10 below.

Mandatory is a fun and engaging website written by men and for men. The layout is kind of like a traditional online newspaper, and there are insightful articles and links to new in the worlds of entertainment, sports and other aspects of a man’s lifestyle. They also have links to videos - both entertaining and informative - and highlight information on the web that men will appreciate. I have found lots of resources here for men at all stages of their lives.
