“Call for Guest Bloggers”
I am looking for a couple of guys that are willing to write/blog on the topic of child loss. To keep with the style of this blog, I am looking for writers/bloggers that have an open/honest writing style. A lot of people follow this blog because of its discussion of honest issues that have more of an edge to them. I pride myself on the fact that this blog is not like reading a “hallmark” card. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time a place for that. As one grieving dad said to me “I like the fact your blog is not all about rainbows and butterflies.” This is a very difficult journey and I think it’s important we talk about these topics so others will read them and not feel so alone in what they are feeling. There is nothing wrong with feel good articles, I have posted several of them on this site and will continue to do so. All I am saying is I want a healthy dose of both. We all know the death of a child is as bad as it gets, so having honest conversations about the dark stuff is vitally important. Although faith was an important part of my healing, I have tried to keep this blog religious neutral, meaning I want anyone and everyone looking for support after the death of a child to feel welcome here on this site. So I ask any reference to religion be kept to a minimum. Let me know if you would be interested in doing a monthly/quarterly blog posting.
NOTE: Due to the strong interest by many grieving dads, I have already secured the guest bloggers. However, if you still wish to provide a story, thought, poem or anything else you think could help others, please send them to me. I will post it on this blog. Thanks to all that are interested.
