New Blog to Feature Baby Boomers Who Blog

This week the Today Show had a mini series entitled Digital Mom, which explored the rising use of the internet by younger women to connect with each other. Advertising firms are realizing the impact these women are having in the market place. While listening to the episodes, I felt a little left out. What about the baby boomers that are also making connections via blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and other online venues? Are we not also having some sort of impact to the overall economy?
This morning at 2am, while unable to sleep, I decided I would attempt to start a blog that would try to feature other Baby Boomers who blog and start to introduce ourselves to the blogging world.
If you were born between 1946-1964 and have a blog, please leave a comment with a link to your blog and I will try to contact you shortly. If you know of someone who fits with the BBB criteria, please send them this way!
Thanks everyone!


I'll start with myself:

I am Suzanne, born in late 1953, and I reside with my wonderful husband, Tom, in Abilene, TX. I just recently started a blog to highlight my love of crafting, selling on Etsy, and getting to know other friends with similar interests.

  8. I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..
