Greetings world! I am very new at this blogging stuff, but there have been things rattling around in my brain for a while and I thought it might be fun and interesting to share them. My name is Ellen and I find myself in “mid-life” and single. I have been married twice and have been single for about twelve years now. Let’s just say this is not what I had planned for my life. My goal in this blog is to share what I’ve been through in my own unique way. Think of me as Carrie Bradshaw plus 15 years. I tend to be very outspoken and call it as I see it. My style is sarcastic, witty, insightful but always 100% honest. Most importantly, this is NOT an advice blog. I can tell you what has worked and what hasn’t worked for me, but I certainly don’t feel like I am in a position to tell anyone else what to do. While I think that most people who like my blog will probably be women, I tend to be much more analytical and logical than most women, so maybe the men will get it too? I don’t know-we’ll see. I also don’t claim to represent the entire female population-in fact to the contrary. I think I am not like most women, but again, I am interested to see what kind of response I get. I’ll be sharing my experiences in dating, relationships and life in general: some good, some not so good but with lots of learning along the way.
