We’ve Moved to http://www.LifeBytesBook.com!

Friends and followers, as of Monday April April 8, 2013 we have combined our book site and blog into one. Please head on over to http://www.LifeBytesBook.com and click Follow.



  1. Hi!

    I wanted to offer you an opportunity to be part of the network of blogs/sites where author Maryanne Comaroto (http://maryannelive.com) provides original blog posts and content. Maryanne’s most recent book “Hindsight: What you Need to Know Before you Drop your Drawers” talks about the tools you’ll need to create lasting, healthy relationships – starting with your most important relationship: the one you have with yourself! The themes of the book are funny, thought-provoking, potentially life-changing, and in some cases – life-saving.

    We think these messages would be a great addition to your site and will be beneficial to your readers. In the effort to create ongoing relationships and partnerships with like-minded sites, we’re offering a few different ways to be involved with Maryanne’s message:

    1). Read and review a copy of “Hindsight” – we’d be happy to send a free review/giveaway copy
    2). Feature a guest post from Maryanne. To get an idea of topics she writes on, check out her blog: http://www.maryannelive.com/about-maryanne/maryannes-blog.html She’d be happy to write on these type of topics, or write on a specific topic you’d like to offer to you readers
    3). Partner with Maryanne on an on-going basis, either as a regular blog contributor, advice columnist, or both!

    If you have any other ideas for ways Maryanne could be beneficial to your readers, don’t hesitate to let us know!

    In addition to the release of “Hindsight,” Maryanne has some other wonderful things going on – she’s host of a radio show (Maryanne Live on HealthyLife.net), she’s offering a responsible relationship certification, teleseminars, etc. She’s also looking for people/sites to sponsor her show and is offering a number of opportunities in return.

    Thanks so much for your time, and hope to hear from you soon!

    • Hello, my name is Chelsea. I am a Content Manager for datingsite.org. We have some great writers who love to write on the topic of dating and relationships. Our writers don’t write promotional articles, instead we feel informative writing is something users are most interested in reading. I was wondering if you would be interested in a guest blog from one of our writers. Of course, the article would be free and we ask for a link back to our site either in the content or in the byline.
      If not, I also manage the website datingonline.net which provides dating advice as well as reviews of popular dating websites. Would you be interested in adding me to your blogroll and I can do the same? Please let me know if you are interested in either partnership.
      You are doing a great job with your blog and I’d love to hear back from you.

  2. I could tell you about the date I had who started our night of appetizers off by telling me how much I looked like his “dead girlfriend,” and how much she would have liked me. That was a doozy.

  3. I will never forget the summer of 2000. It was full of excitement and many transitions in my life. My divorce from my first husband was finalized and I was now in the position to start over and seek a husband of my dreams. I had written in my journal what type of man I was looking for and was anxious to get started dating. However, I had a huge problem!!! I was extremely shy. As, I reflect back, to say I was shy was an understatement of the decade because I was so shy, that I could never, look a man in his eyes, I always looked down and would almost have a panic attack if a man came within my “3 feet distance”. I knew this was going to be problematic, so I decided I would register online with a dating site. Many people thought the idea was a little weird but I thought it was a perfect way to meet someone especially if your were as shy as me. The first guy that I met online, sound like he was excellent husband material. For the sake of protecting his identity I will only change his name and career. Michael was what I would call eye candy deluxe. He was young, wealthy, attractive, ambitious and finally came from a two parent home just like me! I just knew I had this one in the bag. I was a size 2, God-fearing Christian woman, employed and hard-working, long hair, nice car, from a two parent household, loved my father and mother, possessed a mastered degree and owned my own home. When he arrived at my first door, he was smiling from ear to ear. I knew he was attracted to me quickly. However, the Sharon on the telephone was completely different from the Sharon in person. When Michael attempted to get within 3 feet of me, I would distance myself. I never looked him directly in the eye. I talked while my head was down refused to even sit next to him. In my mind or should I say opinion, I just knew my shyness was attractive to him and that he would want to go on a second date. I thought he would be pleased with my child like ways and behavior. However, Michael did me one of the biggest favors a friend could ever do. MICHAEL TOLD ME THE NAKED TRUTH! Michael was the first person I can remember who identified my “Pink Elephant in the Room” and made sound judgements about how I should change and move forward. Michael insisted I look him in the eye and told me “Sharon, if you do not change now, other if not all men may or will think that I was cognitively delayed. THOSE WONDERFUL WORDS OF TRUTH CURED MY SHYNESS INSTANTLY! As a result, I often tell him thanks for caring or loving me enough to set my delusional thoughts free!

    • Hi Sharon,
      This sounds like a wonderful online dating story. If you’d like, you can write it up as a full story, in a Word document and email it to us. We can then consider it an official submission to LifeBytes!

  4. I wanted to submit some articles but I wanted to make sure that my stories are the kind of stories you’re looking for. You can find a good sampling at the CafeGirl Chronicles blog here at word press.

We don’t have a solid time-frame on this as yet so the submission deadline is currently open. We look forward to reading your submission!

  9. Hi, I really love your blog! I’m contacting you because I’ve written a book entitled Never Marry a Momma’s Boy: and 62 other men to avoid like the plague and I am hoping to get the word out about my new book! You can guess that this book is about types of men that women should steer clear of at all costs. It is a funny and smart read that I’m really proud of! If you would be interested, I would be thrilled to write a guest blog on your site. Please feel free to contact me at susanconner99@gmail.com. Thank you for your time!
