That’s why Dad’s House and I have hooked up. (No, not like that!).
David Mott — a Bay Area single dad — and I decided that it’s time for a “Single Parents Connection on Facebook.”
It was all David’s idea, really. We went on a hike by the Bay (it wasn’t a date, sillies) to hang out, catch up, chat about blogging.
We talked about all the single parent bloggers we follow — and all of the articulate readers we’ve “met” out there. We realized there wasn’t a place to bring so many insightful, funny, smart bloggers — and readers — together.
Enter Facebook, the social networking site. David gets credit for doing all the technological homework in order to promote all of the single parent bloggers out there. (In case you were curious, David and I aren’t making any money off this.)
Check out Single Parents Connection, a new Facebook group where single parents, and the singles and parents who love us, can connect.
Like other Facebook groups, there’s a discussion board, message wall, video and photo sharing capabilities. And for Single Parents Connection, a blogroll of single parent bloggers. It’s not a dating site. It’s a community for you.
“As a long-time Silicon Valley veteran, I can tell you the infrastructure is there to build new ways to interact, things we haven’t imagined yet. I “get” the potential of Facebook, and it’s huge.”
The Single Parents Connection group is just getting started, but there are already a handful of single parent bloggers there. Kat Wilder, Quest for T, Solo Mother, Crazy Computer Dad, Dr. Leah, to name a few.
Anyone can join Single Parents Connection - whether you’re a blogger or not, whether you’re a single parent, single, or a parent. Swing by, join the group, lend your support, interact on discussion boards, share on the wall, promote your writing and blogging projects, visit the blogroll. And grab a Single Parents Connection blog badge.
See you there…. I hope!
