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.

    1. Loved your list, and so happy to see GrandmasBriefs included. I’ve communicated with Lisa in the past, and she’s a wonderful person. Robert and Ann, my sister and I will be launching our site soon, and are currently looking for contributing bloggers. I can’t tell you have valuable this post was to us. Thank you so much for your research!

  1. I’m not a boomer but work with a lot of them as an adviser and also help my parents out a lot. This is a great list and one I’ve forwarded to them to utilized. Thanks!

  2. This is really cool I will show my dad all of these different blogs. My dad has a blog at billsshortstories.blogspot.com where he collects all of his short stories along with his classical studies writings. It’s been awesome seeing my dad so active online…..3 years ago I never would have guess it.

  3. This is such a perfect place to come when you are old enough to retire but young enough to enjoy the world around you. My sisters and I love to travel and that is what I blog about. Travel tips, mobile devices and how to take it On The Road.

  4. What a wonderful list of interesting blogs! Thank you for compiling and sharing.

    I purchased BoomersNextStep.com in July last year and have been working on it seriously in the last couple of months. It is about baby boomers’ careers, lifestyle and travel.

    With my professional background as a career coach it was a logical choice to purchase a site which was full of outstanding posts about baby boomers finding or creating purposeful work. However all work and no play is never fun, so lifestyle and travel are also important aspects of the site.

    I’m currently using a Facebook page to build awareness of the site and would love people to connect on there. I live in Brisbane Australia, but many of my readers of the site are US based.

  5. Love this list and follow most of these bloggers! I’m fairly new to the party, and when I grow up, I want to contribute here! We’re just getting started on our Encore Voyage and we’re learning that life is whatever we chose to make it! You’re never too old to reinvent yourself!

  6. Always on the lookout for others like me who write interesting pieces. Sometimes, I just wonder at the popularity of certain blogs. We each like our own type of thing so there is lots of room for different blogging venues.

  7. Great list. Please also check out PBS’s Nextavenue.org and its bloggers including Kerry Hannon, Nancy Collamer, Chris Farrell, Sue Campbell, Liza Kaufman Hogan, Jill Yanish, Linda Bernstein, Doug Bradley, Bart Astor, Kevin McGrath and me.

  8. One of the most important things for bloggers of all ages is checking on the competition. Glad I did because I found boomerplaces.

    As a fellow boomer blogger my goal is driving home the idea of possibilities. It’s possible to start a blog, possible to get into the back side and add code to the .htaccess files on your c-panel.

    Just saying it makes me feel smart to blog, smart enough to call my hosting company and ask how I just wiped out my blog by adding the wrong code. He said delete the added code, and I was back.

    So much of what we see and hear seems beyond our reach. Maybe it is, but it’s not that far. Keeping up with ideas and trends is one way to stay tuned in, just don’t expect your peers to embrace it.

    One boomer I know said he dreams of ‘unplugging’ when he retires. No phone, computer, or TV. Hope he’s talking about hitting the library and bookstores. Too often unplugged drains the life-battery so low it’s hard getting up.

    BoomerPdx is about UP. From Boomer Up to Buckle Up, getting up is so big.

    And so is the big boomer blogger list on boomeplaces.

    Thanks,

    David

  9. Well done, bringing the blogs together. The more we boomers can effectively network, the more we will realize how much we can stay in control of our lives and influence the world around us.

  10. I’ve been writing for the boomer market on my blog from three years now. It’s about social issues, nostalgia, book and movie reviews, everyday experiences. Would love to find a like-minded boomer blogging Community.

  11. thank you for a great list of Baby Boomer blogs. I’ve been blogging at SMART Living 365.com for almost 6 years now and I share a lot of ideas about creating a healthy, happy and meaningful life with all my readers. And because I just turned 60, I’m also writing quite a bit about positive aging and new ways to look at retirement (I call it rightsizing!) Would love to be included in your list if you do another one.

  12. I am 59 years young, and I am retiring on 01/31/2017. I would like to share my plans to stay busy during retirement. I learned to play the guitar as a child, you see I want to be a musician but life took its turn, and I did not pursued a music career. About a year ago I picked up the guitar again, started writing and singing, and it is great. I now have enough original tunes for an album, which will be released on 01/31/2017 the day of my retirement. So what will I be doing during retirement? I will be singing! Youtube.com Ainsley Lounds
