8 Divorce Blogs to Read, Watch & Follow – 2017

The 8 best divorce blogs on the internet are hard to pick. So are the 8 most recommended divorce blogs. The thing is that divorce blogs are plentiful on the Internet. Which ones are good? Which ones are helpful? Which ones are recommended? It all depends on what you are looking for. The truth is there is no dearth of great divorce blogs online. People are very well informed about the subject of divorce and there is a lot of help out there. It is difficult to pick and choose divorce blogs to say this one is good and this one is not good because most if not all have something to offer and have their own unique perspective.
Our own divorce blog Divorce Saloon International, is one of the older divorce blogs that are still active in this niche and is obviously highly recommended by us to you – but maybe it would be slightly inappropriate to put oneself on the list of recommended divorce blogs when one is compiling the list, would it not?.

Thus, leaving aside the obvious and best and most highly recommended divorce blog on the internet (that would be us), here is our list of the next best 8 divorce blogs you should get acquainted with if you are going through divorce or even for information about life after divorce:

Who is her target audience? Moms like her. Here is how Jackie describes her blog:

With blog posts that cover the entire divorce arena–the day he or she moves out, the divorce process, co-parenting issues, your kids, your ex, career choices, loneliness, fear, anger, dating, kissing, sex, and the first time you realize you’re going to be MORE than fine, reading Divorced Girl Smiling is like going to Starbucks with your best friend and talking about your divorce and your love life.

Divorced Guy Grinning is a spin-off of Divorced Girl Smiling, where I sincerely aim to offer advice and support to men. My qualifications? Being a divorced woman for over nine years, I have met, dated, interviewed and/or become friends with hundreds of separated/divorced men, and have pretty good insight into their concerns, issues, problems, fears, and worries. That’s why I think I can offer solid advice and support. I’m not always right, but I do try to provide honest, non-sugarcoated, and inspirational messages. With love, Jackie Pilossoph Creator, Divorced Guy Grinning
