Widowed Blog Hop

Welcome to the brand new Widowed Blog Hop! A blog hop basically allows bloggers to add their blog to a list for visiting other blogs, following blogs you like, and gaining followers. We’d love you to join us!

We will host the Hop on the first Wednesday of each month. This will allow all of us the time to visit all of the links in the Hop. By visiting each of the links from participating bloggers, we will make new friends while furthering a dynamic and engaged community of widowed bloggers. Please encourage your other blogger friends to leave comments including their own links.

How to Participate:

1. Visit each of the links below – both hosts and participants – and read their post. Leave them a comment with encouragement, commiseration, community, or however else the post touches you.

Hosts:

Samantha of the Crazy Courage blog

Janine of One Breath At A Time

Rachel of A Little Pink in a World of Camo

Christine of Widow Island

Kiki of Life After Steve

Robin of The Fresh Widow

Ferree of Widow’s Christian Place

Brooke of 2 Peas in the Pod

Paul of Death is an Imposter

Red’s Momma’s Money Matters

Participants:

Becky’s Choosing Grace Today

Cindy’s Widow’s Pursuits

Tim’s Diary of a Widower

The Official Site of Abel Keogh

2. In the comment section of the hosts’ sites, leave a link to any related post, for example on the day-to-day issues you face, memories you have of your spouse, events you’ve attended, etc. These are things many of us discuss via our blogs anyway, so it likely won’t be out of your realm of experience.

3. It would really help us get the word out about the Widowed Blog Hop if you would tweet, share, and spread the word about the Hop!  Please use hashtags #Widowed and #BlogHop.

Interested in being a host next month? Please email crazycourage@hotmail.com.

  1. It is hard to be widowed, especially when it comes as a shock and children are left behind. I have written a chapter in my book, Grace, Miracles, and Chocolate, subtitled Conceived by Gang Rape, Husband Murdered, Son Committed Suicide, by Marriott Cole, which tells the story of how the Lord forewarned my husband that he had less than two years to live before he was suddenly murdered..I hope that it will comfort those who are more recently widowed. There is hope in the future and you WILL be able to laugh again. http://bookstore.inspiringvoices.com/Products/SKU-000526398/grace-miracles-and-chocolate.aspx

  2. This is my first stop on the blog hop – your experience is so very true – I grew to dislike the term “the only way through is through” but once I understood what it meant it has made grieving easier – there are still many difficult days and instead of ignoring them or “toughing” it up I allow myself to have those feelings. It does indeed aid in the restoration.
