When I was approached and asked to take part in the second annual Blog Crawl for National Unmarried and Single Americans Week my first thought was “errr…. but, I’m not an American”. However, when I found out more about the event and what exactly happened during the Blog Crawl, I was more than happy to jump onboard.
Today National Unmarried and Single Americans (USA) Week kicks off with the second annual blog crawl which showcases the most influential writers and blogs – established and prevailing – in the online singles community.
I’m relatively new to the online singles community, so it goes without saying that I’m happy (and extremely proud) to announce that The Single Filez is the first international blog to be featured in the Blog Crawl, exposing National USA Week to an international audience.
The concept was created by SingleWomenRule.com; and the idea is that a blog crawl is similar to a pub crawl in the real world (sounds good already eh?). Readers will be guided to seven blogs, one each day of the week, to read a guest post by one of seven featured writers. The Blog Crawl kicks off today with an article by Executive Director of the Alternatives to Marriage Project, Lisa-Nicole Grist posted on SingleWomenRule.com, and ends next Saturday with an article by Dr. Bella DePaulo, author of Single with Attitude, and Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereotyped, Stigmatized, and Ignored, and Still Live Happily Ever After on The Alternatives to Marriage Project blog.
Filmmaker and best selling author Michelle Cove joins the Blog Crawl for the first year and will be guest writing a post right here on The Single Filez on Thursday 23rd September (so excited!) the very same day her new book Seeking Happily Ever After: How to navigate the ups and down of being single without losing your mind (and finding lasting love along the way) is released by Tarcher/Penguin.
“We hand-picked the writers and host blogs for their tenacious spirit and voice,” said Terry Hernon MacDonald, an editor of SingleWomenRule.com. “Guiding readers from blog to blog in a crawl helps each blog build their readership, while bringing a fresh perspective and new audience via the guest bloggers.”
What are you waiting for? Go on and head on over to SingleWomenRule.com for the first post in this year’s Blog Crawl. Enjoy!
