Baby Boomer Blogs

Robert Fowler with Retirement Media and Ann Hearn have visited a lot of baby boomer blogs.  Ann says:  In coming up with a list of boomer blogs we like Ann says “This is a difficult task since I read so many blogs for a variety of reasons. Some for content, some for enjoyment, some to learn, some to be inspired or motivated and some for good information. I will attempt to list a few but there are many more with good reasons to visit.”

So with that in mind here are some of the boomer blogs and boomer web sites we find most enjoyable to visit.  We are not calling this list the best boomer blogs or top boomer blogs.  We just made a list mostly for ourselves.  Just call it a boomer blog bookmark if you like.  We have made some notes about each blog in case one interests you.

What is a baby boomer blog?  Well for our purposes most of the blogs we visit are written by baby boomers and has content mostly for baby boomers.  Most of these baby boomer blogs are owned and written by individual baby boomers, not large corporations.  Baby boomer blogs are popular because baby boomers are finding that writing is fun and they have many boomer stories to tell, plus socialize with new friends.
