A while back, one of our readers wrote to ask us if we knew any good blogs that address the issues single moms face. I was all “Hey! I’m a single mom! I write on the blog.” So I told the reader I’d try to write about more about my life as a single mom.
I’ve been stumped. I haven’t known what to write about. Sure, as a single mom, I face a whole different set of issues from the married mom (and most married moms have gotten a least a taste of the single mom life when a partner travels for business, goes on a mancation, etc.) But whenever I try to write specifically about my “single mom” issues, it just feels whiny.
So then I went on a search—for single mom blogs that aren’t whiny. There are lots of really good ones. Quite a few focus on dating, but there are some that don’t. So here you go, WMAGs—help support the single blogging moms of the world. Take it from me: They need it, and they’ll appreciate it.

*If you’re a single mom who reads this blog, and I don’t mention you, please put comment with your blog name. I only started my search a few weeks ago—I’d love to learn of more.
