MY FAVOURITE AUSSIE MIDLIFE BLOGGERS

AUSTRALIAN MIDLIFE BLOGGERS

A few years ago I wrote a post on 5 Aussie Midlife Bloggers and I noticed that things have changed a bit since then and it was time for an update. There are some fantastic women in their 50's and 60's (and even 70's!) who are writing blogs that inspire us all to live Midlife to the full and remind us that the second half of life can definitely be the best half of life.

Today I've compiled a list of my favourites, and you can click on their blog title to connect to their blogs if you'd like to read more:


1) CRESTING THE HILL

I had to put my own blog in the mix - after 4+ years of blogging about Midlife I think I deserve a mention at least. I write primarily about what Midlife is teaching me, the highs and lows and how I work my way through them. Hopefully I'm inspiring other Midlife women to realize that life keeps getting better and this is definitely our time.





2) SIZZLING TOWARDS 60 & BEYOND

Next on my list has to be my BBB (Best Blogging Buddy) Sue from Queensland. Sue is an advocate of being fit and healthy and inspires me every time I read one of her posts. She runs marathons, does yoga, exercises regularly, and leads an active and fun life. I'm sure you'll love her blog too. She's also my co-host for Wednesday #MLSTL parties and has been an amazing friend throughout my blogging journey.




3) DEB'S WORLD

Deb lives in NSW in a very Aussie named place - Tumbarumba (I just love saying it!) and she loves taking photos of the world around her, writing about her travels, and sharing little snippets of her life. Her blog is upbeat and we seem to have been on similar Midlife journeys - especially in navigating life after an unexpected retirement.





4) LIFESTYLE FIFTY

Jo is a fellow West Aussie who lives near me and is an amazing blogger who's travelled the world, is a great advocate of 50+ fashion and always looks fabulous. She's received awards and recognition for her blogging and even features on a radio show every so often - so she's almost famous!






5) WRITE OF THE MIDDLE

Min is another Queenslander who writes about Midlife, Zen-ful living, beauty, and some of her travels around Australia. She was recently shortlisted for a Bupa blogging award - quite an achievement in light of the amazing bloggers she shared the awards with.







6) AND ANYWAYS

Jo (another Queenslander) amazes me with her talent for doing a million and one things - she blogs, she writes novels, works, cooks, travels, and so much more. I always feel a little bit envious by the end of one of her "the month that was" reports - She's always up to something new and inspires me to make an effort to include more in my life.





7) DEBBISH

Deb (yet ANOTHER Queenslander - there must be something in the water over there!) writes about her life with honesty and openness - including her search for the perfect job. She also specializes in book reviews - and an occasional update on what she's been watching - a good source of Netflix recommendations!






8) DENYSE WHELAN

Denyse uses her blog to share her journey through the last two years of mouth cancer. She is a very positive role model for those facing a similar battle. Denyse also has a Monday link party for other bloggers and is a huge advocate of Outfit of the Day to keep her spirits up and show us some of her style choices.






9) NEXT PHASE FITNESS

Jennifer is an amazingly fit blogger who loves to hike and ride and exercise. She's always challenging herself (and her readers) to be fitter and healthier and shares stories of her adventures along the way.




Jan and her husband Rowan write about retirement, financial planning, travel stories, fashion tips, and lots more. They bring a different flavour to retirement blogging and always have something interesting to share.





WHO ELSE WOULD YOU ADD?

This is only a snapshot of some of the Aussie bloggers I follow regularly - there are a few others in my 2016 post who are still going strong today too. If you'd like to be added to the list, let me know and I'll do an addendum! 

I love the Aussie camaraderie and the encouragement and support I receive from each of these lovely women. Blogging has proved to be such a surprising journey into finding joy in Midlife - and it wouldn't be the same without them! I could also mention my other Midlife blogging friends from all over the world - but that would take weeks! If you want to meet more then pop into one of my Wednesday #MLSTL parties and click on some of the links - there's something for everyone!

  1. Hi BBB, I'm honoured to be on the list with all of these wonderful Aussie bloggers. I love the name Tumbarumba too! These ladies all contribute so much to Midlife & Beyond and are all special in their own way. Thanks for sharing your list of favourites because they are mine as well! :)

    1. I just love our Aussie blogging community Sue (especially you x) and how we cheer each other on and enjoy each other's blogs - just wanted to share it out into the wider world because so many Midlife women would benefit from reading what we have to offer xx

    2. Yes I think we are all more 'grounded' in our approach and write about life after 50 from experience. Thanks again for including me and I love our friendship. I've shared on social media and #MLSTL comes around quickly doesn't it? I love the idea we came up with and the forum for other Midlife bloggers.

  5. I've been to the dentist this morning. 1.5 hrs in the chair with my mouth open and 5 needles later, I'm home all numb in my face, lips and tongue and feeling a bit blah. But then I'm scrolling Facebook and see that you've published a post on Aussie Midlife Bloggers and am so honoured to see that my name is listed here amongst all the other lovely blogging ladies I admire. Thank you Leanne - you've made my otherwise quite 'numb' day!! xoxo

    1. Min I smiled at that (even though you probably couldn't!) I hate the dentist with a passion (even though I worked in one for 11 years!) Glad I could make your day just a little bit happier and you are definitely one of my favourite Aussie bloggers xx

    2. You definitely made my day much happier Leanne! Thank you! I'm visiting again for #MLSTL and have already shared your post on my FB page. xo

  6. How very honoured I am to be included in this list of inspiring and talented bloggers. Thanks so much for your lovely words Leanne :) As I'm in England at the moment with my Mum in hospital, and also helping to look after her partner (98) at their home, this couldn't have come at a better time to cheer me up and give me renewed zest to keep on blogging.

    1. Hi Jo - so sorry that your Mum's in hospital - I'll be thinking of you and sending warm wishes as you juggle all that needs to be done to get her well and home again. Aging parents are such a worry - and being on the other side of the world just magnifies it all. Hang in there and yes, keep on blogging xxx

  7. What a great list & I am both thrilled & awed to be named in this group. I really enjoy the unique ways each of us blogs bringing our different perspectives on life in the middle to older years because we all learn from each other. What a great community feel it is to be part of this Aussie Blogging one. Thank you Leanne. Denyse x

    1. Hi Denyse - I'm thrilled to be part of this group too. I love what Aussie Midlife bloggers bring to the table and how we all compliment each other - rather than competing. That's part of this age and stage isn't it? Being able to cheer each other on and shine a light of support where we can x

  18. Thanks for sharing this list Leanne. As it turns out, I am familiar with 8 of the 10, so that means I've found two new blogs to check out! As you know, I live on the other side of the world, but it appears about half of the bloggers I check in on regularly are Aussies. Interesting! #MLSTL

  20. So good to re-read this and the grateful words from my fellow bloggers. I admit I got quite a surprise seeing my name listed amongst these quality women from Australia's blogging scene.
