life after 50, over 50, boomer women, baby boomer women

I am pleased to share my favorite sites for boomer girls. Some of these sites are blogs written by women in midlife and some are collaborative sites featuring a variety of midlife bloggers. Others are sites that I enjoy reading on topics including beauty and fashion, health and wellness, and travel and leisure.

    Pam recently posted…101 Ways to Stay Healthy and Young Longer Than You Expect.My Profile

    • Pam, thanks for sharing your blog information. I will take a look and see if it is appropriate for my blogroll.

    • Jeff, while I didn’t add your site to the blogroll, I thought I will share your comment. Just want readers to know that these retirement matters on Joyce’s website refer to Canadian consumers.

  3. Hello Judi I have just found your site and am loving it. I have just began blogging this year. Have not hit my stride yet and learning so much as I go. Can you please give me any advice on how to get my blog out there to women over 50. I really want to inspire and build confidence. I will be using video a lot and periscope. Please take a look at my blog and any comments would be delightfully and gratefully received. Much love and thank you. Margaret in London

    • Margaret, I highly recommend you join the Midlife Bloggers group on Facebook. It is a great way to interact with other post 50 bloggers.

  4. Hi Judi!
    I seem to have fumbled during my previous attempt. Mistake in my name as well. Don’t know how that happened! My name is Veena Patwardhan and I’m trying to do this once again. Here goes…
    What a wonderful range of topics you’ve covered. Enjoyed browsing around and could see you\’re enjoying sharing your writing with others. I do too. I’m a post 60 blogger and ’active senior years’ is one of the topics I write about. Thought you might find the stuff I’ve penned interesting enough to add to your blogroll. I also happen to be an experienced freelance writer and to share some valuable tips on earning money from freelancing writing I offer a free course for aspiring freelance writers. Do check out my blog when you find the time. Would be interested in feedback from you as well. Thanks!

  5. Hi Judy,
    I’m enjoying getting more familiar with your site!
    Also wanted to introduce mine, kind of a micro niche site for singles (men and women) over 50 who may be considering either full or part time expat life in Mexico.

    In light of what the Great Recession did to so many of our careers and 401(k)’s and the evolving healthcare crisis, I want women (and men) to know they do have an option, and option that includes good health care, excellent quality of life and adventure.

  6. Hi Judy,

    I absolutely love your blogs about traveling! You are such an amazing women. My business partner Danielle and I started a travel company for women 30+ who want to travel to Southeast Asia together in small groups. Our trips are focused on local experiences and supporting the local women we hire on as guides during our tours. We have a blog all about Southeast Asia & would love if you would consider sharing it on your blogroll! Thanks!

  7. Hi Judy,

    Great site and super informative.

    I know it’s a bit left of field from your normal blogroll sites however A lot of your readers would be avid pet lovers and my site is aimed at providing a resource that helps owners learn how to raise an amazing puppy into an amazing dog.

    The site is called WileyPup, if you’re interested check it out here:

    • Hi Mat. Thanks for sharing your site about pups. I know many of my post 50 friends and readers have dogs. If I owned one it would be a cavapoo, so I’m glad you have that breed featured on your site. Your site looks like a good place to visit if you want to get a puppy or dog.
