Blogging for all ages
Jan 16, 2006 - 02:33 PMBloggers are young. Everyone knows that. It's a truism.
Then how do we explain AARP's Blogosphere 101 - Older Bloggers List? Well, I guess we could say it's a collection of musings from people in the 50- to 80-year-old bracket, who discuss their RV travels, or age discrimination, or coping with the inevitable loss of loved ones, or what it's really like to get older.
Sometimes they write, in clear, ringing tones, about experiences from their younger days. And there's nothing quite as textured as a teenybopper story, told from the perspective of someone who has already experienced several decades of ever-after.
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone.
