Your Voices, My Resources


Over a march of my years of blogging, we have infrequently experimented with hosting posts by guest bloggers. Many of those guest posts have been renouned with readers. In that spirit, here are dual invitations to share your perspectives on singular life. In a initial (Your Voices I), we would post your grant (or an mention from it) on one of my blogs. In a second (Your Voices II), we would post on a designated subject on your possess blog (or chatter feed), as partial of a blogfest event.

In a third partial of this post, we offer some resources on renouned topics applicable to singular life (and a area of imagination that rapt me before we started essay about singular life, a psychology of fibbing and detecting lies).

Your Voices I: Share Your Love of Your Single Life

A reader of this blog recently sent me a good suggestion. He pronounced that he would like to hear from people who adore their singular lives. What creates them ardent about vital single? What are a opposite perspectives and approaches to life of people who are singular during heart?

So, single-at-heart readers, have during it! Tell me because your possess singular life is so fulfilling. Send your essays and observations to me during BellaDePaulo [at] gmail.com. Typical blog posts are between 400 and 800 words, though there are lots of exceptions. we might tell whole posts or name excerpts.

There is no deadline. Submit your essay whenever we like. we will substantially space a essays out over time, interspersed with my common posts. we might also post some of a essays or excerpts on my personal blog instead of here. As we can see, this thought is in a early stages.

Your Voices II: Join a Blogfest

Cindy Butler of Unmarried Equality, Christina Campbell and Lisa A. of Onely, Eleanore Wells of Spinsterlicious Life and I are organizing a array of blogfests to lift recognition about singlism (the stereotyping, stigmatizing, and taste opposite singular people) and singular life. We call a organisation a Communications League for Unmarried Equality or CLUE.

Our initial blogest, about a cost of singular life, launched on taxation day, Apr 15. Dozens of bloggers participated. Our subsequent eventuality is scheduled for Independence Day, Jul 4, and a thesis is a ways in that singular people are both eccentric and interdependent: they value their liberty though they also attend to their connectors with other people (usually to a larger border than married people do) and they mostly do some-more than their share of caring for people who can't caring for themselves.

If we have a blog and would like to join a joining of singles bloggers for this blogfest or for destiny events, let me know (or any of a other organizers) and we will supplement your name to a list and send we some-more information. We also acquire people who wish to twitter about a events.


There are some topics that we get asked about mostly and write about regularly as new information and new perspectives emerge. Over during my personal blog, we am collecting links on renouned topics and creation them accessible simply by clicking a pretension of a applicable theme. we will continue to emanate some-more of these collections. Here are a ones accessible now:
