Welcome to the Fabulous Over 50 Blog series! Part 7 introducing you to some wonderful Women Over 50 Who Blog. It’s great to see you here.
Fabulous Over 50 Blog
I like to think that Lifestyle Fifty is an inclusive, happy place on the big bad web, and as much as I love writing about issues women over 50 face, and about fashion and travel, I think it’s the other fascinating women who contribute to this site that give it an extra, super fabulous dimension.
Blogs for Women Over 50
I’m very keen to promote creative women over 50 who either blog -or who are entrepreneurs or micropreneurs in any other field too – a new series!
If you’d like to be included, or know of any women over 50 who has a success story to tell, please let me know in the comments.
For now, a big warm welcome to Suzanne and Gayle, bloggers at Sixty Express and Retirement Reflections. Thank you both for contributing 🙂
Suzanne Singleton Brown – Sixty Express
Trains, planes, automobiles, ships and ferries. You guessed, my blog is about my travel experiences since I retired a few years ago.
My name is Suzanne and as I crept into my sixties I called my blog: Sixty Express. Come join us!
With a sailor for a husband, we still enjoy sea travel …….sorry not luxury cruise liners..think smaller freighter ships that also take passengers.
Our travels have included river cruises or a tour, but are usually to more obscure and less travelled places.
We have travelled by local buses up through Finland, trained through the mountain regions in Europe, caught the Trans Siberian train and sailed on a freighter ship to the French Marquis Islands.
If you’ve always wanted to go to see where the Bounty ended up, check out the markets of Myanmar, or see the cherry blossoms in Japan, then please check out my blog and come travelling with me.
It won’t be a tour guide experience, but I promise you will feel you are along on the journey without the hassle of packing.
Should you decide to come, we will be leaving next January for a trip to Pitcairn Island.
But why wait, check out some past trips to obscure place such as the Finnish Áland Islands, Budapest to Bucharest or parts of Asia. I hope to meet you soon.
Donna Connolly – Retirement Reflections
I began blogging as a New Year’s resolution. I had recently retired and wanted to record my thoughts and experiences as I transitioned into ‘life after work’. I knew very little about blogging but took the plunge and self-hosted. My technology learning curve has been straight up!
I hadn’t written for pleasure for years. It was a remarkable feeling to reconnect with this part of me that had remained dormant for so long.
Another unexpected pleasure from blogging has been the deep connections made with so many incredible people from around the world. People who inspire, encourage and make you think. To date, I have been able to meet up with six bloggers IRL. We never ran out of things to say (quite the opposite), and we felt like we had known each other forever!
Here’s an early post that I had written that best describes my transition into retirement: Hope for The Driven Personality
Thank you to Jo for including me in this series. I greatly look forward to connecting with others at Lifestyle Fifty.
