A good friend of mine has been struggling through a divorce this year and I’m pointing her at editor-in-chief Linda Lewis’s editorial in the February/March 2012 issue, where she discusses her divorce for the first time, and then benefits of taking the high road when co-parenting. Drop by and tell her what you think!
I really love that the ‘net has become a place for divorced women to connect with each other and share their experiences as they go along. When a big life change hits like that, it really helps to hear from people who have been there. Here are five of the best divorce blogs I’ve found as I’ve been looking around this year. Please add links in the comments to any divorce bloggers you love!
The Bitter Divorcée
Annie’s blog’s tagline is “on bitterness, contradiction, culture, and kids” and that really pretty much is it. Love her directness and willingness to get down to the real hurdles of coping with teens and co-parenting issues.
While I could complain that our pseudonymous narrator takes a few blog hiatuses now and then, the archives alone are worth a read. For a sample, try The Myth of the Clean Break.
Postcards from a Peaceful Divorce
Molly Monet’s blog can restore hope for civility to a situation that is almost inevitably confrontational. She also candidly shares continued challenges – like how to share past mistakes with a new partner.
Divorced at 50
Not only does “Movin’ On” write with clarity and honesty, she tackles really interesting subjects in “grey divorce” – aging, working, and dating after 50. I love that she links to articles and research around the web.
…and of course Deborah Moskovitch, who has been a More.ca contributor for some time, blogs at The Smart Divorce.
