I decided to make this an open post. Please share with all my readers what sites you have found that would be of interest to baby boomers. Ok, marketers now you can strut your stuff so take advantage of it.(smile)
Also, those of you who have a blog or static website this is an opportunity to share with others. Of course I am not going to approve anything that I don’t think is appropriate. Yes, you can share cooking sites I always think that’s appropriate!

Thanks for chance to plug:
Going Like Sixty: Boomer writing about stuff mainly of interest to other boomers. No politics, few rants, attempted humor.
Platinum Pearls® is a portal to information, workshops, retreats and quality of life programs that address the spiritual, emotional and creative dimensions as well as the medical, financial and lifestyle aspects of midlife baby boomers.
I recommend NowWhatJobs.net — http://www.nowwhatjobs.net. It’s a resource for job transitions after age 40. It gives people information about companies and other organizations, colleges, continuing education — all kinds of information.
I am totally into Pop Culture from the Baby Boomer Era and do a few sites related to this subject:
One is my Pop Culture Art Website – http://www.popartdiva.com – featuring my retro inspired art with tributes and trivia on things pop culture.
The other is my Pop Culture Blog – http://www.popartdiva.blogspot.com – which is where I blog about the pop culture of yesterday versus today.
I have another blog which is Baby Boomer related – http://www.roadtodiva.blogspot.com – where I talk about all things Diva in regards to my baby boomer thoughts on the issues!

Please come check out our company, Growing Bolder! We are in beta mode right now, but you’ll find some really cool stuff — we are a social networking site, so you can blog, upload pictures and video and much more BUT we also produce content. We are former TV employees (anchors, reporters, producers, etc.) who got sick of covering crime and grime, and now focus on telling great feature stories about people who are 45+ and leading an active lifestyle. You’ll find Masters athletes, celebrities (James Lipton, Davy Jones, Neil Sedaka, Ed McMahon, Dave Barry, Stan Lee, John O’Hurley, Naomi Judd and many more), inspirational authors, and much more. We are intergenerational, so even if you aren’t a boomer, you can come hang out and learn why it’s not about age, it’s about attitude.

Deliberately Debbie is an ‘Aussie’ baby boomer, committed to raising awareness to ovarian cancer through her books and other webistes/blogs. There is something for everyone on a variety of pages, all supporting the awareness message. Be sure to turn up your speakers to enjoy the jukebox!
Please check out my website, Feisty Side of Fifty. It’s a celebration of baby boomer women, fifty and over, who have changed the world and will continue to do so. We gals have overcome some pretty incredible odds to transform the role of womankind in the culture and we’re now doing the same thing for aging. We’re bringing an entirely new spirit and style to the process and are feistier than ever. It’s time to celebrate us, the amazing and incomparable baby boomer women!

I have a blog which is written by a brother and sister who are both Baby Boomers. The blog is about their struggles and successes overcoming depression. I’m sure there are plenty of other Baby Boomers who have depression and would be interested in reading and commenting at: http://his-hers.ozzieblackcat.com Thanks for giving us the opportunity to promote our blogs. 🙂

The play “COURTING MAE WEST” will be in a theatre in July 2008 and MAE is in the air at http://MaeWest.blogspot.com – – so please come up and see Mae West!
Rosie, thanks for the opportunity to post. My site, http://www.Topretirements.com, is designed to make it easier for baby boomers to figure out where they should live in retirement. We have Wiki-style reviews of about 225 of the best retirement towns, and another 125 capsule summaries of active adult or over 55 communities in those towns. There is a weekly newsletter that highlights outstanding or unusual communities and provides feature articles. Would love to do an interview with you sometime, I have lots of ideas about why baby boomers’ retirements are going to be very different!
http://www.babyboomerbev.blopspot.com or http://www.boomerworld.blogspot.com.
You may not agree with the posts but you owe it to yourself to readf the perspective of your fellow baby boomer.
Rosie, Thanks for introducing me to your audience.
http://www.PreRetirementLLife.com is a great site to refer to when anyone over the the magic age of 50 wants trustworthy information about ways to make the stage of life before retirement rewarding, healthy and happy. You can think of this as the place to plan the perfect “Pre-Retirement” strategy.
This site saves people TIME and MONEY. It is filled with useful expert articles, recommended web sites by topic to help customize a typical Google search, targeted discussion forums and even great deals and discounts for boomers who are not senior citizens (as though we will ever be called this). it is so different because it is not a social network but a resource guide just for us.
You can also find all the products and services that are finally serving our needs and they are presented in an Expo where we can browse whenever we want to. No banner ads.
Please let me know how valuable you think http://www.preretirementlife.com can be for you and your readers. You can comment at the top of the site or reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you feel like me, I can’t imagine I will ever make it out of the pre-retirement stage of life –
Enjoy your visit.
http://www.verving.com is the portal that guides boomers TO and THROUGH the best content on the Internet
Thank you for this great opportunity.
My site, http://www.notjustthekitchen.com is geared to baby-boomer women but many of the articles apply to men and women of all ages. If your eyes are too tired or you want to multi-task, just click on the “Listen” icon and the article is read to you.
I’m now going to visit all the sites/blogs that have been submitted here.
btw: Please check your last link on the previous page.
Wow, all these sites are awesome aren’t they?
Thanks for the heads up for the link.
This is great! Thanks for the opportunity to show my site. I really have fun with it coming up with topics and personal life experiences.
Thank you for the opportunity to let all boomers know that this is the best possible time to grow new brain connections and build memory power. Brain skills are still sound in your 50’s and this is the time to build the memory buffer (cognitive reserve) you need to push back against memory loss in later years.
