Singletude: A Positive Blog for Singles

Singletude is a positive, supportive singles blog about life choices for the new single majority. It's about dating and relationships, yes, but it's also about the other 90% of your life--family, friends, career, hobbies--and flying solo and sane in this crazy, coupled world. Singletude isn't about denying loneliness. It's about realizing that whether you're single by choice or by circumstance, this single life is your life to live.

Singletude Profiled at Onely

Newsflash! Singletude was profiled today at Onely: Single and Happy as part of their series "Some Like It Single," which features blogs with a pro-singles focus. (There must be an award for stuffing the word "single" into a sentence as many times as I just did, heh heh.) Longtime friends Lisa and Christina, who share blogging duties at Onely, are writerly academics, and it shows in their articulate posts, which will introduce you to such concepts as "heteronormativity" and "singlism." Their blog takes a provocative look at cultural assumptions about singleness, both in their private lives and in the wider spheres of advertising, entertainment, politics, and other American institutions. It will challenge, educate, and enlighten you without ever sacrificing its charming readability.

Please stop in and check out Onely's Singletude review, then stick around for an in-depth exploration of what it means to be single in our coupled world!

Thanks Elsie! We're happy you agreed to be profiled. Although I must say that actually *Lisa* is the academic and I just piggy back off of her. = ) But I did learn "heteronormative" from her and have been wielding that one around like a crazed Samurai with his sword, so help me.

Hi Else, conrats!

I read onely all the time and you're right, they have a great and articulate way of expressing "Singlism."

Cheers!

oh p.s., looking through the links you have, I noticed a link for http://relationshipdigest.wordpress.com/

which I no longer use. Could you replace that with:
http://relationship-digest.com/

Thanks Else, stay well!

Christina: Thanks for the correction!...I too have added "heteronormative" to my vocab arsenal. :)

Singlutionary: Heehee, thanks! I hear we are all famous in Australia these days. ;)

Bobby: Good to see you around these parts again. :) And thanks a bunch for the new link! I was wondering why you hadn't had any new posts in forever and was beginning to fear you had given up the blogging life. But, thankfully, it turns out I was just behind the times. So yay for a domain of your own! Movin' up in the world, huh? ;)
