A Blogger Is Born

7 Apr

After yesterday’s post from the lovely DazeDiva in Mumbai India, today I’m heading over to LA on the west coast of the US.  Today’s post is from someone whose blog never fails to make me chuckle (more like embarrassingly loud guffaws). She always tells it how it is, she blogs about shockingly honest things (farting on dates, anyone?) and I kinda heart her for that. This lady is proof that it’s possible to feel some kind of connection to someone without knowing their name or even what they look like. Single Girl Blogging – take it away!

A Blogger Is Born

Happy blog birthday, Single Filez! Dating blogger singlegirlie inna house, representing Los Angeles out here in the U.S. of A. I like Filez, because in some ways, she reminds me of me, except classier.

When it comes to men, she’s as picky as I am. It’s not necessarily a good thing, but I think we’re both hoping for some semblance of magic. Not like singing penises kind of magic, but that magic feeling you get when you’re with someone who you know is the right guy for you.

Like Filez, I started my blog about a year ago. The idea first came to me from my ever-fabulous gay bf. He would listen to my crackpot dating stories and told me if I wrote a blog, it would be wildly popular.

Hmm, I thought. I’d been wanting to find an outlet for my writing. I write at work, but it’s nothing you’d call creative. Yes, a dating blog! Write what you know, right?

The Blogger Learning Cycle

6 Apr

Yesterday I headed east to Paris France for the first of my international guest posts An American In Paris. Today I continue to head east in, fact, I’m going waaahaaay east… all the way to Mumbai India, where we’ll hear from another Twitter pal of mine, the very lovely and very gorgeous Dazediva.

The Blogger Learning Cycle

I’ve been blogging regularly for just over 2 years now; and it’s been a really insightful journey of discovering more about ‘me’, my blogger voice, and becoming aware about what else is ‘out there’.  I’ve discovered some amazing bloggers spread out across the globe; some of which are now my Twitter and FaceBook friends.  When I started my blog – I didn’t quite know what to blog about or how I would carve a space for myself out in Blogosphere but I knew I wanted to have a place of my very own where I could look back and think ‘damn so that’s what I was thinking / experiencing / going through all those years ago’.   I didn’t know the first thing about blogging – so I just kept reading around Blogosphere; found inspiration in posts; wrote up whatever I could and hoped that someone out there was reading my sporadic reflections.  And here’s what I discovered:

An American In Paris

5 Apr

As mentioned yesterday, things are going to be a bit different around here this week. To celebrate my one year blogaversary,  instead of my usual one or two posts, there will be a ‘week of international guest posts’. Not only does it give me a little break (yay!), but it also gives me a chance to showcase some of the kick-ass bloggers I’ve discovered over the past year. Kicking off the proceedings is the lovely Helene aka The Man-shopper. Originally from California, Helene ran away to the East Coast of the US for college, rashly bought a one-way ticket to England to be with a boy, and has been an expat ever since.

An American In Paris

Hello, Single Filez readers!  Helene the Man-shopper here, reporting from Paris…

I’ve noticed that most non-parisian singletons (and non-singletons, for that matter), seem to have romanticized, idealistic and almost love-struck ideas about Paris as the most romantic city in the world.

Is this really true?

Yes and no.

Top 3 Celebrity Couples Sure to Make it to Next Valentine’s Day

13 Feb

As you would imagine, I’m not the hugest fan of Valentine’s Day. Apart from my school years when it was cute to send an anonymous card to my secret crush, its never been that much of a big deal to me. However, being that I’m a dating blogger, its not an occasion I can let slip by unnoticed. So, for this reason, and so to not produce a post where I sound like a evil, bitter, twisted, single woman (ahem), I’ve enlisted the help of the lovely Jessica DeRubbo of Cupid’s Pulse, to put a more positive spin on Valentine’s Day.
