Fiesty Side of Fifty

The auther states:

“My personal mission is to reach as many of my gender and generation as possible to celebrate our remarkable history, our awe-inspiring futures, and just plain hoot and holler as only the menopausal can. We gals have overcome some pretty formidable challenges and we’re not going to let a few wrinkles stop us now.”

    Nice list! I’m a baby boomer psychiatrist who lives on a bus. Needless to say, my blog tends toward the humorous… and the occasional pyramid of poop disaster.

    A nice collection of blogs. There’s also Fabulous After 40, a blog by two women for women. It’s on fashion after 40. I also write a blog for baby boomers (The Boomer Chronicles) but it is not exclusively for women. Lastly, if you visit my blogroll, you will find a gigantic list of boomer blogs. They are blogs by people of boomer age, some directed at boomers, and some that are more general interest.

    Thanks for the shout out, friend Rosie! Much appreciated– and I know you’re one woman who puts the feisty into being over fifty big time! 🙂

    I’m honored to be included on your list. While I recognize the majority of these blogs, there are some I do not. I love the “Midlife’s a Trip!” title and I will definitely be checking it out.

    It is my hope that people will find useful information as well as be entertained when they come to the blog you listed. It’s all about being a baby boomer parent and a member of the sandwich generation.

    So happy to have found your blog Rosie. And to have the above list to refer to when looking to read the chronicles of kindred boomer souls. I was aware of 3 of the blogs but am about to get busy introducing myself to the rest.

    Hi Rosie, Just dropping in to share that even though the site isn’t it blog, it has over 50 forums where boomer women connect, encourage and support one another 24/7.

    Thanks for this list. I can’t wait to check out all the blogs. ALready been to some, but not all. Thanks!

    Thanks for the list of boomer sites. Some are new and look to be a very valuable resource for women. My site,
    The Baby Boomer’s Network, is not exclusively for women, but also has tons of information that women can relate to.
    Always enjoy your blog.

    You’ll want to add to your list – an internet magazine for women over 50 -

    Thanks for the list. I write a boomer consumer blog called The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide at

    My blog is unique because it address the consumer needs that boomers have rather than trying to sell something to them or show them how to sell to boomers.

    Dear Rosie,
    Two friends emailed me the link to your blog to tell me that the In the Trenches blog was recommended by you. Thank you so very much. All of us at In the Trenches are extremely grateful to you for the mention. There is definitely a movement going on out there.
    Again thank you for thinking of us.

    This is an excellent list! I learned a lot from it. This is a great service for Baby Boomer Women and for those of us who support Baby Boomer Women. Thanks very much.

    I’m back with one more comment and an addition. I think the reason the majority of blogs you listed are GREAT is because they are “personal” spinkled with facts. The authors are human and they express themselves in a lot of different ways.

    I read different blogs for different reasons. The blogs you list are on my list because they are personable and enjoyable to read. I am truly honored to be included on that list.

    Now may I add: 🙂
