For the readers who have been with me for a little while, the fact that I'm single may not come as a shock. I've mentioned it here and there over on the other side of the blog but I haven't really gone into too much detail about my situation. When I started Living on a Dime or Less, I wasn't exactly sure what direction that the blog was going to go. As much as I want (more like NEED) to live my life on as little as possible, I knew that I desired to write about more than just my budget. I longed to write about the reasons WHY my budget was as stretched as it is. I wanted to share more about my life and the various things that I go through on account of my situation. But, i just didn't really feel that my main blog was the place to do it. Hence, the new addition.
I'm a single mom. Some of you know this, some of you may not. While I plan to continue sharing my budget related and DIY projects (for now. . .I may even spin DIY projects off into another page one day. . .who knows?!) over on my main Living on a Dime page, I also wanted to start this other segment of Living on a Dime or Less to share my experiences as a single mom. There's alot more to me than just my budget and my (very slow to be completed) projects. I'm a mama who is going through a very difficult process right now as I find myself being forced to rely on myself more and on my ex less. I may not post every day and I may not even post on this side every week but now that I feel like I have a place where I can share the more intimate details of my life and my struggles (and successes!), perhaps I won't feel so restricted in what I post.
