The Strange Case of the Out-of-Character Blog Post

The latest post over at Living Single was a guest post by Elliott Lewis titled “Undateable.” That one word could raise eyebrows. I like to say that all of my blogs are about all aspects of single life except dating and becoming unsingle.

Site to Highlight All Enlightened Singles Bloggers is Now Live!

Today is also the official launch date of the new singles site highlighting all of the singles bloggers who write from an enlightened perspective. It is called Single with Attitude.
