Print Friendly

Looking for some new online reading material? Look no further. There are hundreds of thousands of bloggers out there and a whole cross section of writers who’re catering specifically to the over 50s market.

From travel blogs to crafty updates, the beauty of blogs is the fact that there’s always something to suit everyone. Get stuck into some of the best blogs for the over 50s and see if you can find your new favourite blogger.

Great over 50s blogs to add to your routine

If you’re looking for a blog that provides a little get up and go, be sure to check out Second Lives Club. Frequently updated with amusing and inspirational blog posts, it’s excellent for reminding you that life doesn’t stop at retirement. As is Midlife Boulevard, which features a great range of blogs from a team of fabulous over 50s, while Empty House, Full Mind is a brilliant read for older parents who’re getting used to having the family home to themselves again.

Huffington Post has put together a really handy list of its favourite blogs for women over 50, which features some savvy, funny and interesting bloggers who offer regular opinions and updates on how it feels to be an older woman. Another excellent blog geared towards women is Fab Over Fifty, a blog where women over 50 can share their singular style, exceptional experiences, and brilliant recommendations. Men, on the other hand, might be more interested in Views From The Bike Shed, an engaging blog about fatherhood and retirement from writer Mike Charlton.

Blogs to broaden your reading horizons

Unlike newspapers and magazines, blogs have very little in the way of running costs and are typically created by one or two passionate individuals – this means that they can afford to specialise in a way that traditional media can’t. So no matter how unusual your hobby or how specific your tastes, you’re likely to be able to find a blog to match them.

Anyone thinking about taking up running or jogging during retirement should definitely have a look at Old Man Running. This entertaining blog details the adventures of a 78-year-old geezer who has been running for 40 years and also teaches some basic running skills. Foodies and bakers might prefer to spend some time scrolling through the posts on Equal Opportunity Kitchen – a fun food-related blog run by a mother and daughter team.

Fashionistas can find all sorts of inspiration at Not Dressed As Lamb and men who’re interested in looking great as they grow old gracefully should definitely bookmark Grey Fox. Once you start exploring the blogosphere, you’re sure to find that your reading list just grows and grows. Most bloggers are happy to share their own favourite reads, meaning that it’s easy to branch out and find new material from the kind of people you enjoy connecting with. And if there’s no blog out there that caters to your particular set of interests, why not fill the gap by starting one of your own?
