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.

Footloose Femails: A Yahoo! Group for Single Women

Singletude would like to announce the debut of the hottest, hippest email list ever to grace Yahoo! Groups. Okay, maybe I'm a little biased, but I'm allowed to be because this is a group for single women, so it automatically gets the Singletude seal of approval. (Sorry, guys, this one is just for us girls, but if I hear of a comparable group with more testosterone, you'll read it here first!)

Called Footloose Femails, the group was started in April by moderator Iolanda of Sydney, Australia, to give single women an online retreat for socialization, support, and general exploration of the joys and challenges of solo living. Right now, the group is still small, numbering 14, so new members are welcome. There have already been some intriguing discussions about everything from male-female friendships to self-commitment ceremonies, and the larger the group gets, the livelier the conversation will be.

For those who are unfamiliar with Yahoo! Groups, you will need a free Yahoo! account to join. As with all Yahoo! groups, you can choose to receive and respond to messages by email or log in to the Footloose Femails forum online. I hope to see you all there!

Also, apologies to anyone who couldn't access Singletude over the weekend. The robotic powers that be mistook my love of informative links for spam and put the blog on lockdown. Thankfully, we've straightened out that little misunderstanding, and hopefully it won't happen again. (This is where I'm supposed to haul some intimidating threats out of my arsenal, but everyone knows you do not threaten a multibillion Web 2.0 monopoly and live to blog about it.)

Fun Link of the Day

Do you have a question for Clever Elsie about some aspect of the single life? Have a rant or rave about singlehood? Write in, and you just might see your question in a Singletude Q&A or your rant or rave in a Singletude Sound-off!
