Avvo is a site that provides ratings and reviews for attorneys across the country in various areas of the law. They have a great blog on divorce called AvvoStories, which covers a wide variety of divorce subjects, usually written by former attorneys, authors, and freelance contributors.
In 2013, I launched Divorced Girl Smiling because I wanted to share my experiences and the lessons I learned in the years it took to get from rock bottom to Divorced Girl Smiling.
Written with honesty (even if it hurts) and vulnerability, my blog paints a very realistic picture of divorce that isn’t pretty. But, some of my stories are really funny, entertaining, and inspirational.
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 Girl Smiling isn’t just another divorce blog, it’s an honest, non-sugar-coated place to go to get real advice. And while you’re here, I’ll inspire you, make you laugh, and give you a big hug.
Reading Divorced Guy Grinning is like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues.
Divorced Guy Grinning is a spin-off of Divorced Girl Smiling, where I sincerely aim to offer advice and support to men who are: *Considering divorce *Going through one *Dating after divorce The majority of what you will read on Divorced Guy Grinning is written by me, but there are many guest posts written by male experts and divorced men.
Although I’ve been told more than a few times that I am clueless and have no idea what men are really thinking, I have also been told by men that they enjoy hearing the female perspective on things. It’s kind of like getting some insight into what your ex-wife, girl you just met or new girlfriend might be thinking.
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.

We are Terry Gaspard and Tracy Clifford, a mother and daughter team with extensive experience in counseling and writing. The topic of Moving Past Divorce is a personal one for us – divorce goes back five generations in our family. Having experienced divorce in our own lives, we have a keen understanding of how it can affect the inner lives of children, and impact the kinds of adults they become. Our book, Daughters of Divorce, is about and for women who grew up in divorced homes, as they face unique vulnerabilities related to love, trust, commitment and self-esteem.
Perhaps my greatest understanding is that while we may try to fit divorce into a single legal process, ending a marriage and the subsequent recovery is a very individualized experience. The women I’ve interviewed come from very varied backgrounds: some had been married just a few years while some had celebrated over forty years of marriage. Some were wealthy, some had been homeless. Some were educated, some were high school drop outs. Some were stay-at-home-moms, others had worked full-time outside the home. Some had children, some had none and were young enough that they still wished for children in the future, for others, divorce also meant they would never bear a child. They were all willing to share their story because they believed by doing so they would help others through the process. Several of them said that even though it was odd to read about themselves, it was also therapeutic.
Collectively these stories tell us that divorce is a normal part of the life cycle even though there is a stigma attached to it in many circles. These stories say we are still a family after divorce, we just look a little different. These stories tell us we can customize divorce and our post-divorce life to fit our personalities, our characteristics, our strengths, our weaknesses. They mean we can create a relationship with our ex that allows for the rebuilding of trust and a shared commitment to parenting. They mean we can create a loving, supportive environment where are our children will thrive. They mean we can grow and learn and be the persons we were always meant to be. They mean too that divorce is may be an ending but it is also a beginning.
We are dedicated to helping couples and families get through their divorce with less stress, less emotional impact, more peace and better preparedness for a new beginning. These pillars form the framework for the decisions we make, the work we do, the families we serve and the communities we help build.
