Welcome to We're Not Mommy Blogs! We're a brand-new community designed to fill a niche that we felt was missing from bloggy land, a niche specifically for bloggers who, for whatever reason, don't have kids.
Now, before we begin, we want to make a couple of things clear:
1) We are not anti-kids. We like kids. In fact, we love kids. But, whether by choice or circumstance, we just do not happen to have kids.
2) We are not anti-Mommies Who Blog. We like Mommies Who Blog. In fact, some of our best friends are Mommies Who Blog. We got the blessing of those best friends before starting this adventure.
3) We don't want to exclude anyone. That's not our purpose. We're not into alienating people. And we certainly don't want anyone to feel left out. This is a positive community, not a negative one. Its purpose is to create a place for Not Mommy Blogs to hang out and be showcased. There are plenty of communities dedicated solely to Mommies Who Blog, but Not a Single One for the Not Mommy Blogs.

Whew. Glad we have that out of the way.
Onto the introductions. My name's Katie of Chicken Noodle Gravy, and my co-founder is Bernie of One Mixed Bag. Bernie and I have been kicking this idea around for quite some time, but for various reasons, we're just now getting around to putting it into motion. This week Bernie was searching on google for communities and networks for bloggers who don't have kids, and...There. Are. None. A fact that finally got our butts in gear.
We want We're Not Mommy Blogs to be a place for blog hops, networking, and friendship. We want it to be a resource for The Rest of Us, because we are a vastly ignored population in the blogging community and that needs to be fixed.
We're Not Mommy Blogs will be offering a weekly linkup on Fridays. In addition to the linkup, you also have the option of officially joining the We're Not Mommy Blogs network by adding your blog to our Blog Directory. The only "rule" for adding your blog to our directory? You must add our button to your blog. That's all we ask!
We hope you enjoy your time at We're Not Mommy Blogs!
