Black And Married With Kids

Bloggers seem to be very good at naming their blogs in quite self-explanatory ways; this is another blog where the name says it all, or at least most of it. This is a blog dealing with both the everyday issues and unique challenges that marriage, culture, parenting and children, and achieving the home-work balance can create.

Black And Married With Kids – Why You Should Go

Black and Married With Kids is the work of Lamar and Ronnie Tyler, a professional couple living and working and raising their family of four children in the Washington, DC, USA area. Their blog is focused quite heavily on all of the issues that impact a marriage, and also takes a wider world view into areas of interest. Ronnie and Lamar describe it as a place where they

“…share our opinions and points of view on relationships, parenting, politics, current events and anything in between.”

For readers, the multiple award-winning blog has become a place for insight, growth, inspiration, discussion, advice, and much more. The Tylers work hard to make this a community blog where topics are discussed rather than preached, opening up the blog as a sort of forum with each post, but most specifically with their category, Dear BMWK.

Summing Up Black And Married With Kids

Black and Married With Kids is a place of insight which takes on the always complex issue of parenting and maintaining healthy relationships. It’s no short order, but this couple has managed to build a place where real life meets the media world, and continues to work hard to lend advice and support to readers facing the triumphs and challenges of married life and raising children in a seemingly ever-changing landscape.

Where to Find Freakedout Fathers:
Blog URL: http://www.freakedoutfathers.com/
Category: Parenting, Fatherhood

Freakedout Fathers

There really is no shortage of parenting advice or websites, albeit at varying levels of usefulness and authority. It’s probably fair to say that a great many of those are weighted more toward the female side of living with children than the male. And so it is good that there are excellent, real-life blogs and websites out there to help men navigate their own unique way around the spectrum that is life with children and family. Peter Aldin‘s Freakedout Fathers is one such place.

Freakedout Fathers – Why You Should Go

Freakedout Fathers is the work of the aforementioned Peter Aldin, Australian personal and professional coach with an emphasis on communication—which one might think is ideal for life with children, unless you have ever lived life with children. Peter is the first to admit that professional preparedness does not equal preparedness for parenthood. For that, you need more—you need understanding, comrades, and experience. Yes, that means that you might be destined to make a few mistakes and live in a cloud of doubt from time to time, but then, that’s what Peter and his blog community are here for—to give men a place to connect and commiserate and learn from the trials and experiences of each other.

Peter’s blog has the dual advantage of knowledge and experience. Peter and his blog are here to raise the issues of parenting from the male perspective, to offer resources and advice, and to help you work though them in a down-to-earth and oft humorous way through education and identification.

Summing Up Freakedout Fathers

Freakedout Fathers is an obvious choice for a Dad, but there is a lot here of value for Mothers and others, too. First off, (if the men can forgive the female intrusion) there is a lot that women can learn here about just what goes through the minds of a father, at a level of understanding not often seen that can really help couples and parents come to terms with each other’s opinions and actions. Secondly, a lot of what men go through women experience, too, particularly in these modern days where issues of work and family are shared and not solely the domain of men anymore. Not to paint the place pink, as we know Peter has his own opinions about over-feminising the male space, but this is a blog of real value for anyone facing the challenges of child-rearing; a blog with great potential to more than the audience it is intended for, with the potential to also help bridge the divide of misunderstanding between mothers and fathers.

An Actual Look At Marriage In Real Life

Marriage ActuallyWhere to Find Marriage Actually:

Category: Marriage, Relationships

Marriage Actually

Marriage Actually is the concerted effort of a real live married couple, Marc and Marye Audet. Marc and Marye are an average American couple raising children, maintaining a family, and constructing the perfect marriage…or not.

Marriage Actually – Why You Should Go

Marc and Marye hold no illusions of marital perfection—why hold yourself to an impossible standard? Better to hold yourself to an achievable standard of reality and happiness and work through the rest. That is just what the two have done and continue to do. They write their real-life marriage blog with no holds-barred, sharing their joys and triumphs, struggles and strifes with the best of intentions.

Perhaps Marye said it best: “One of the things that Marc and I agreed to when we took on this blog is that we would blog about anything and everything AND we would be transparent and real. After all, there is nothing helpful about a perfect marriage. We all need to look at marriages that aren’t perfect and work anyway!”

Summing Up Marriage Actually

Marriage Actually is a testament to the institution of marriage, in all its gore and glory. Marc and Marye are courageously open and honest, working hard to make theirs a blog that others can learn from, share in, and relate to. Visit Marriage Actually for a glimpse of what married life is all about, and maybe pick up some tips to improve your own personal relationships.

A Little Weekend Love

Category: Love, Relationships

It Might Be Love

Weekends seem to be the time for bloggers to spread their linky love, but this blog-love post is of a slightly different sort. This time we’re reviewing a blog that is actually about love, in all its forms and incarnations.

It Might Be Love – Why You Should Go

Anything that you can do to grow loving relationships in your life is worth while, and is sure to improve your life. This blog, written primarily by creator and writer Chelle with help from her contributing authors (like Damien Riley of Damien at The Speed of Life), covers many topics related to love.
One of the top focuses of the blog, as you might expect it to be, is love as it applies to dating, relationships, and marriage. As Chelle points out, though, love exists in many things, and so the blog also includes posts to help you learn to love or appreciate the love you have for other things, like tasks and hobbies, work, life, and generally “…all things related to love.” Chelle says, “Love can be just about anything – from romantic love to family and friendship love to the love we have for things like ice cream and music.”

It Might Be Love posts range from discussions and advice to the finer points that help keep your love alive. “It Might Be Love provides advice articles, dating and relationship resources, creative gift ideas, love poetry and quotes, music and book reviews, and everything else we love in between.”

Summing Up It Might Be Love

It Might Be Love is a place to explore the concept of love, and also to cultivate your own. Come here for everything love-related, whether that is to find ways to grow love in your life, or to finally learn how to buy appreciated, meaningful gifts for the people you love. And if you’ve got something to share, as Chelle says, don’t be shy! Guest posters and contributors are all welcome.
