Between the Lines is a continuing blog series hosted by Katherine at Katherine’s Corner, which features around 80 bloggers all of whom are at least age 50. What a concept! I am so pleased to be able to join in the fun and meet some new friends myself. You can find all of the prior weeks bloggers here:
Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4
I have been following some blogs for several years now and about a year or so ago, I started following a new one because of her awesome DIY posts. I later found out she also did style posts too, which I fell in love with! And from there I began to wonder if there was anyone who did style blogs for us middle-age women (50 IS the new 30, right??) So I started googling and found one. And then I found a second one. And then…
You know what I discovered? I liked both the original blogs that I was reading (written by 30-somethings), AND I liked the new blogs written by ladies more my age. I am finding that the age of the writer doesn’t necessarily matter if the subject matter is what you are interested in!
Now of course, some younger authors may be writing about how to discipline her small children or how to get babies to sleep at night, and since I am an empty-nester, that’s not the blogs I read. But if she is painting her living room, or if she has found a comfortable CUTE pair of shoes, then hey, tell me about it because I NEED to know.
I have pretty much been a follower all my life. Too afraid of making mistakes to be the leader. But when mid-life found me, I made up my mind that I was going to venture out of my comfort zone and do some things that interest me that I have been afraid to do in the past. So here I am. Flying in helicopters. Zip Lining. Taking dance lessons. Swimming with dolphins. Blogging.
Stick with me. Lets see whats next!
