Not Alone Series

notaloneseries

What is the Not Alone Series?

The Not Alone Series is a weekly blog link-up by single women, for single women. In a sea of mommy blogs, we offer a different voice. We share our joys, crosses, and blessings. We unite here to remember that we are not alone just because we’re not married.

What do you write about?

Each week, we post about a different topic pertaining to an aspect of our lives as single women (mostly Catholic). As we look forward to whatever may come—marriage, (more) children, religious profession, or ongoing single lives—we have much to say.

Our main categories are (in no particular order):

  • Community
  • Dating
  • Chastity
  • Encouragement
  • Catholic Spirituality
  • Discernment & Vocation
  • Friendship
  • Fun & Random
  • Single Life
  • Prayer
  • Resources

How did this thing get started?

Jen and Morgan boldly founded the series in 2013. They even appeared on CatholicTV!

In 2015, Jen and Morgan passed along hosting duties to Rachel and me. We hope to continue for many more seasons of blogging in fellowship and love.

How do I join?

To join the Not Alone Series, simply start posting! Write a post on your own blog about the topic of the week (publicized in advance). Visit the post hosting the link-up and use the inLinkz button or widget to add your link. Rachel and I alternate who hosts from week to week. Don’t forget to visit the other posts to say hi and build community!

You can “like” our Facebook Page to get a link to each week’s link-up post, join our private Facebook Group for even more discussion, and subscribe to Rachel’s and my blogs to follow along. We’re so glad you’re here!
