Health is one of the main concerns of baby boomers. We are concerned about the health of our children, parents and finally ourselves. I feel that our concern for ourselves is critical if we are to help others. As a long time Community Health Educator I was excited about compiling this list. And as a caregiver and baby boomer I know that it is important to have resources that speak directly to the needs of baby boomers.
Of course not all the blogs in blog world are listed in this little list. This is just a way of “priming the pump.” (Getting the water to flow) The list is limited to baby boomer authors or sites directed to baby boomers. Note also, that all the blogs in this list are by real people. Many sites were omitted from my list although they were directed to baby boomers because they did not have an ABOUT page or information about the authors.
If any sites are included without an ABOUT page it is because I knew the author to be a live person not a robot or sales machine.
Please tell me about other blogs that are by or written for baby boomers. I hope the resources are helpful to you.
Thanks so much.
