My huge list of blogs by widowed people

If you're grieving, you may be validated and cheered to discover writings by folks who've been there -- and some who are even through. You might even find your "widowhood twin."

If you're outside taking a peek, be warned that many of us "write raw" and we tend to have bizarre senses of humor.

I discover new bloggers every week, and try to keep a fairly comprehensive list, but please note, I leave out many blogs that rarely talk about loss or appear to be dormant, as well as a few extremely fresh ones. I no longer list blogs associated with services or that aren't personal. To add your blog, please use this form.

Most of what I do is connected to the non-profit organization, Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation. They run a WONDERFUL blog with posts by a different widow or widower each day of the week: Widow's Voice. You can also read blogs on Widowed Village, my online community, which is an SSLF program as well.

Please read around and leave comments to show you appreciate what these men and women are sharing! It's not easy, and we have seen how vital our writing can be to folks living through loss, so we can use every bit of support!
