Five years ago, when I started MidLifeBloggers, I envisioned it as a gathering place for all of us who consider ourselves to be in the middle of our lives. Then, although we were the fastest growing demographic in the US, few people were talking to us or for us. Now, there are lots of boomer blogs, and advertisers are starting to reach out to us.
Over the years, MidLifeBloggers has grown and changed, tried this, dumped that. One thing we never were was a full-service site offering a range of on-line and off- activities. Rather, MidLifeBloggers is more of a boutique, a salon of sorts. I like to think of it as a place where we can to figure out how to be in these middle years by listening to each other. You won’t find ‘how to’ articles or experts giving rote lectures here. I want to learn by what other people have done; I want to hear their voices.
The fact is that midlife is a time of change and of evolution, and writing about it, expressing it in any medium, is one way to understand ourselves and our lives. I know that’s true for me and my writing on MidLifeBloggers and I want to hear your take on your life as well. Check out Write For Us to learn what our submission requirements are.
