WHO I'M NOT AND WHO I AM
When I was a Mum of young children the internet hadn't been invented so I never got to be a Mommy Blogger, I'm a fairly ordinary cook so I never got to be a Food Blogger, I'm the Anticraft so I never got to be a DIY Blogger, and I am no clothes horse so I never got to be a Fashion Blogger.
But! One thing I am excellent at is being a Midlifer - I am learning so much, experiencing so many new things, and growing heaps now that I've hit my Fabulous Fifties - why not blog about it? So, a couple of years I jumped in feet first and became a Midlife Blogger - and what a ride it has been.
MIDLIFERS ARE EVERYWHERE
Who'd have thought that Midlife would be a time to start writing? Well, let me tell you something! There are dozens and dozens - probably hundreds and hundreds of Midlifers out there blogging their little hearts out. We have Facebook groups, dedicated Webpages, blogging conventions and so much more. We haven't missed the blogging boat - we've jumped in, grabbed a paddle and are at it with gusto!
Sometimes I wonder when I'm going to run out of things to say. It hasn't happened yet - and when a slow point comes along inspiration isn't far behind. Even the A to Z Challenge lends itself to inspiration and a chance to connect with new people and read new blogs. So many friendships waiting to be discovered. So much still left to write about - Midlife Blogging is so much better than I ever expected.
My husband tells me that he won't need to write my funeral eulogy - he'll just hand out fliers with a link to my blog and let people find out all about me by reading the hundreds of posts I've written over the years - sounds good to me!
|Perhaps this is what will be handed out at my funeral? Or sent to everyone's smart phones?|
See you tomorrow for C - which is for Crazy Cat People.
