Happy One Year Blogiversary to Me!

From the Editor / May 20, 2013

It has been exactly one year today that I began this journey of blogging.  To say that it has been one of self discovery and purpose would be an understatement!

I have always had the gift of writing but life got in the way of me doing what I loved.  It wasn’t until I was hurt at work and could no longer do my job of retail manager that I decided to start a blog.  My first blog started as just a way for me to talk about what was going on in my world, my views on things and my life as a single mom.  Man, did things look differently back then, huh?

As I said, it was just a way to “talk.”  This was my “About Me” back then…

Welcome to my Blog!
My name is Ty and I am a Sexy Single Mommy of THE most talented and terrific little boy in the world. Being a Single Mom of a son is in and of itself a very hard job, however, I take it day by day and give 110% on this journey called Motherhood.
In my blog, I will take you through my adventures of not only being a Sexy Single Mommy but the drama of  being a single parent and dating (or lack there of), as well.  I am sure that you will get a kick out of my dating experiences, while I grab a shot of vodka to try to forget them.
Let me warn you, if you are looking for a “woe is me” kind of blog. This is not it. I have never been homeless, depressed or struggled. Life as a Single Mother has never been stereotypical for me. What I can say, is that by the grace of God, I have been one of the fortunate ones. Although I have been a single parent from just about the day I conceived, I have handled the role well and never regretted or complained about the hand that I was dealt.  As I always say, “It is, what it is.”
All that being said… By writing this blog, I intend to keep it 100 at all costs. There is not too much that is off-limits. At times, I may shock and amaze you but I hope that I can inspire those who read it, give a hearty laugh when you least expect it and make your heart swell with love as you embark on this journey with us. Thanks for reading and enjoy!

LOL! Nowadays, I still keep it 100 but my blog has now changed to a Relationship Blog.  I have become a brand (speaking it into existence) and have worked very hard to turn my blog into the success that it is today.

Along my journey, I have met some very awesome people and I would not be where I am today with my blog if it had not been for Myisha McCarthy! I call her my Brand Manager because she has been advising me from the beginning.  It was her creativity that changed The Sexy Single Mommy into the blog that you see today.  She was able to take my vision and make it a reality and I want to take a moment to thank her for all her hard work, advice and being patient enough to deal with me!

I also want to thank the ladies of BLM (Bloggers Like Me) for their continued support and for being such positive inspirational women!

My blog has also given the opportunity to showcase some awesome bloggers and writers…my contributors and without them and their gift of writing, my blog would not be a success!  I believe in helping others realize their dreams and sharing my knowledge of blogging and writing.  I truly believe that we can “all get it!”  When you refuse to help others or refuse to share your knowledge to keep others from coming up, you block your blessings and I need all the blessings that I can get!


Thank you all for taking this journey with me.  Some of you have been there since the beginning and many of you have discovered me along the way.  Regardless of how long you have been here, I appreciate the fact that you are here!  I promise to keep writing and promoting the same content that attracted you to me in the first place and above all, I promise to always keep it 100!

Love you guys and thanks for supporting The Sexy Single Mommy!

Hey there! I stumbled on your blog from the honest bitch and was intrigued. I had to stay and check out some of your posts. Congrats on the success and one year anniversary. My blog has reached its 6 month birthday recently, and I hope when it’s a year old, it’ll be as successful as yours. I’m following you on twitter now. Hope you share your posts on there so I can keep updated. If you get the chance, come check out my blog. Maybe we could collaborate one day if the topics fit our audiences.

Keep up the great work. Let’s connect on twitter and I’ll be revisiting regularly.
