Was I going to continue talking about retirement like the Guru told me or was I doing to abandon retirement to talk about clothes or something equally as gender related. I really didn't want to be all about gender but I am a woman so there you have it. It seemed that if I wanted readers I needed to change something. I decided the important thing was not what I talked about so much as who I talked to.
That was when I connected with a group of women, middle aged women over 50 and things changed for me in many ways. See, the thing is, younger people, even those past middle aged, really aren't interested in what being "old" is all about. They want to hear what their contemporaries have to say.
So I just declared that I was not that old and began to hang out with that group of younger women (online that is). Most of the time it is just fine and I have learned so much from this pool of women. Whitney Johnson, Pia Savage, Chloe Jeffreys, Julie Deneen and Sharon Hodor Greenthal are all power bloggers and I follow their example.
What I enjoy most of all is that they are still figuring it out and like to talk about it. There are not many women my age that are blogging regularly or if there are, I don't know where they are hiding. Plus I am not about cooking or knitting or quilting.
So, as promised in the title of this blog, Retire In Style Blog, I am going to talk about retirement out in the open just a little bit. After all, I do have a thing or two to say that you have not heard from me yet. Even if you have heard it, I have probably changed my mind since last we spoke!
