Welcome to “A Baby Boomer Woman’s Life After 50.” I’m Judy Freedman, a fifty-something female baby boomer. My blog is targeted to the millions of baby boomer women (born between 1945 – 1964) who are going through a similar life journey in mind, body and spirit. Widowed at the age of 50, I’m learning to reinvent myself. My philosophy is to age gracefully, be optimistic about the future, and keep my chin up…so my neck stays forever wrinkle-free.
I started blogging about seven years ago, when I was approaching my 50th birthday. You can find my original blog at “A Year To 50.” It was a life-changing year for me. My husband took ill and passed away shortly before I turned 50. I also became an empty-nester when my daughter A graduated from college and my son D graduated from high school.
I am truly indebted to my blog readers for their support during what became one of the most extraordinary years of my life. It is with gratitude that I continue to share my life after 50 with my growing virtual community.
Yes, my real name is Judy with a “y,” but in the blogosphere I’m known as JudiBoomergirl or Judi, as I sign my posts. It’s a bit trendier, like the iPhone and iPad.
In addition to being a blogger and a writer, my background includes more than 35 years experience in corporate communications, brand marketing, event production, public relations and magazine publishing. In 2013, I retired from my full-time corporate communications job to pursue my blogging, writing and communications consulting.
Plus, I completed a new journey receiving my YTT200 certification at Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies in Camden, NJ. I’m excited to be a yoga instructor and share the benefits of yoga during my second act.
Syndicated Blogger and Speaker
You can also find me as a contributing blogger on The Huffington Post , HealthyWomen.org, Midlife Boulevard, VibrantNation.com, My Itchy Travel Feet, and HoneyGood.com and as a featured speaker on social media and reinventing your life after 50 at events such as the Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Conferences For Women. I’ve also taught classes on blogging at local forums.
