I Love Being Single!
I’m Shannon McCraw, an Entrepreneur currently residing in Maryland…home of the best steamed crabs! I love being single! Of the many hats I wear, one is being an Internet Marketing expert adapting to the way people like you are shopping … online!
I am also a SEO Consultant providing SEO and marketing services to businesses, helping them to take their business to the next level. I LOVE what I do and I LOVE to help others. I spend a good percentage of my time online and enjoy it!
But wait, there is more! I am also a single and very proud mommy to a five year old boy. His name is Brayden. People often wonder where I find the time to do it all but that is part of the reason I am single. Which has brought me to the idea of creating this site.
I want to hop on the topic of being single for a minute. Whether you are newly single or have been single for a while, you are probably familiar with the motion that it seems that our society likes to allow our relationship status define us. I have been married and divorced. Engaged and cheated on. Dated for weeks, months or years since then and once my son came, I wrote off relationships. Obviously, the relationship I had with his dad didn’t last. My focus since my son was born has been being his mother, and finding a career to allow me more flexibility, time and financial freedom to give him the best life that I can as I raise him. When I am not growing my business, trying new products or being a mother, I spend time with some other amazing women who I am proud to call my friends. So as you can tell, I have very little room for dating. I am no longer completely writing it off, but it is going to take someone amazing for me to share my very precious free time with.
Prior to my son being born, I was single and dating on and off for years. Oh the stories I could share! haha. I have come to embrace being single and I find it hilarious that I am still judged on occasion regarding my relationship status. My favorite question that I get, especially from men is, “Why are you single?”. The many answers that have come to my head (but not actually spoken) when asked that, are quite comical. However, I acknowledge that for some, being single is scary and unfamiliar. I hope that this site will bring you some cheer and some kind of connection with me, a “professional single woman”…literally. I am a pro at being single!
While the reviews and information you may find on this site do not all relate specifically to being single, it is still fun to categorize many of the products as must-haves for single women. Actually, I am sure any woman will find joy and a connection with some of the products (like wine accessories for example!!) I review. I am here to have fun and to connect with other like-minded and “like-relationship status” people!
Now that you know a little about me, allow me to tell you more about the purpose of this site. If you love to shop on Amazon as much as I do, you will find yourself reading MANY reviews. As someone who is an Internet Marketer, I can assure you that there are a high percentage of reviews that are fake! People get free products or discounts to provide reviews (most do admit to that in their reviews) but there are also people who are paid to leave reviews. In addition, there is no voice to those reviews. You have no idea who is behind them. I am putting a face, personality, voice and even a status, behind my reviews which gives buyers some trust in knowing that there really is a person behind my reviews. You may love, hate, disagree or agree with what I have to say but at least you know who you are loving or hating. I believe that it is easier to conclude a more educated opinion by having some kind of connection to the person behind the review.
I love being a woman and like most, I love to shop! I will be reviewing a variety of products from different markets however, I do not have a one-stop place for reviews that detail every aspect for what I am looking to purchase. In other words, there is not one particular website that I visit where I find myself connecting with someone, watching a video of them talking or wanting to just hear about their experiences.
With that, I decided to start this website to accomplish a connection with many other single women. It is my mission to make this site a place where women can come and not only read reviews written by me, a person who is actually using the product, but also watching YouTube videos providing even more detail about some of the items you will find on this website. If I am having a bad hair day, I may not feel like shooting a video haha! I am sure you feel me there! (hopefully in time you will relate to my silly humor).
If you are easily offended, I should warn you that I will hold nothing back. I will make it a goal to review everything that I can that I purchase that I think you may enjoy and that is being researched online. I love this shit! I really do. Ultimately, it is my goal to steer a few ladies in the right direction for better buying decisions.
Don’t forget to connect with me in the social media world and to send comments with any feedback suggestions or ideas you may have. I mentioned on the home page that in time, I will be interested in bringing on another lady or two to partner with. I think it is good to get different reviews and perspectives from ladies with different backgrounds. I will choose only people who I know and trust. However, I may consider running a contest in the near future so that one of my loyal readers may have an opportunity to partner with me! Stay tuned for more on that.
