Five Things Friday ~ 5 Aussie Midlife Bloggers

Five Australian Midlife bloggers everyone should know about

MIDLIFE BLOGGING

For Five Things Friday this week I wanted to write about Midlife Bloggers - I couldn't even begin to cover all the amazing midlife bloggers out there (especially in a "five things" post!) These women are rocking the blogging world and if you're not reading them then I suggest you head over the the Midlife Boulevard website or their facebook page and start catching up on these bloggers and their fabulous-ness!

AUSTRALIAN MIDLIFE BLOGGERS

I settled my dilemma by choosing five Australian midlife bloggers - there aren't all that many of us out there that I'm aware of so I even included myself in the list so that I had five - if there's any you know about, add a link to them in the comments and I can stretch the list out further.

My main focus for today is on Midlife Bloggers because that's who interest me and that's who I love to read - and an Australian flavour is an added bonus (IMHO) so if you haven't caught up with these ladies, grab a cuppa and click on the links and say hi from me while you're there!

1.  CRESTING THE HILL



I mainly write about how great this stage of life is. I'm a huge fan of the empty nest (my children refer to me as a mother wolf - for kicking them out of the den!) and I love where I am in life at this moment in time. I tend to share the lessons I've learned and my journey towards this point - because I want everyone to find the happiness that I'm experiencing.


2. SIZZLING TOWARDS 60


Sue is a Queenslander (across the other side of the country to me) and my blogging kindred spirit. The main difference is that she is super fit and healthy (I'm working on it!) and she shares fun ways to keep fit, healthy and active. She also throws in a recipe or two and other interesting things that she comes across.




Kathleen writes really informative stuff about blogging. She is an expert on Alexa and Google Analytics and all things technical. I find her inspirational in her ability to keep up to date with all the background stuff in growing a blog. She also hosts an amazing linky party on Fridays called the Blogger's Pit Stop which I love joining each week.




Janet writes at Middle Aged Mama about fashion, life as a mum, her love of cats (she and I connect big time on that one!) and all sorts of interesting things that happen in her daily life. She also won her local business woman of the year award so you can tell that she must know what she's talking about!




I only discovered Kathy's blog recently (through Midlife Mama's blog) and she is an inspiration for living life on your own terms. She writes about her passion for travelling and photographing brilliant destinations around Australia and overseas, and judging by her post on being a semi-retiree, she seems to have it all. Plus she co-hosts a linky too!

  13. Hi Leanne,
    I recommended your blog to a blogger who wants to enter the midlife niche. I've heard of most of these.
    Thank you for bringing your post to the Blogger's Pit Stop last week.
