Best Blogs and Websites for Midlifers

Written on June 15, 2008 – 9:54 pm | by Coryan |

Woman and SkyGiven that this blog is about midlife career change, I decided to share a bit on midlife and skip the career change angle for a moment. These blogs and websites are some that I regularly read (or friends and family read) on the topic of midlife. A few of the blogs are simply interesting personal journals about a midlifer’s own journeys and others have advice and guidance for those in midlife.

Midlife Gals – By their own description, this blog contains the “Daily irreverent observations by two twisted middle-aged sisters in Texas. ” Put your own midlife miseries on the shelf for an hour and read the humorous, insightful and often quirky adventures of Lizbet and Mayrie. Recommended Reading: Please Hold…For the Next Available Representative.

Midlife and Treachery – This longtime blog covers a variety of topics ranging from Medicaid to Monty Python. Viewing life as a midlifer with a disability is often not all that different from many of our own experiences. And when it is different, you can expect to find an interesting post about it at Midlife and Treachery. Recommended Reading: At Home in Summer.

Midlife Mysteries – When I first started blogging last November, this was the first midlifer blog that I read. Actually, it was one of the blogs that sparked my own interest in blogging. Cathy’s blog is not just an interesting read, but it is also one of the best designed blogs I know…love that header! Recommended Reading: My Double Life.

LifeTwoLifeTwo – LifeTwo is a magazine style website for those of us just getting our second wind in life. Just read the tabs at the top of the page to get an idea of the variety of topics covered at this site. Since I’ve been getting into listening to podcasts, I have really enjoyed the podcasts at LifeTwo. Recommended Reading: What’s Your Calling?

Mid-Life Rider – Maybe it’s a midlife crisis, and maybe not. But regardless of what it is, Kevin’s motivation to create a blog about midlife and motorcycling is a success. I read the blog just to feed my own desire to get away sometimes. I love the photos and the journal entries describing Kevin’s biking journeys. Recommended Reading: The Long Road Home.

Confessions of a Mid-life Trucker’s Wife – This is a new blog that is popular with my wife. She describes the stories and images as heartwarming. I’ve even been know to read a post or two from the rambling trucker’s wife. Recommended Reading: Supper Table Discussions.

The Boomer Chronicles – If midlife blogs have one thing in common, it’s probably that they cover nearly every topic imaginable. The Boomer Chronicles is another great blog that is as likely to have you laughing as grabbing a pen to jot down some great information you can use later. Recommended Reading: Another Bigfoot Sighting that Blew Me Away.

TeeBeeDee - TeeBeeDee, as in To Be Determined, is a growing community of midlifers and beyond who share in discussions on popular topics like politics, careers and family. I try to drop in at least once a week to read a few discussions and post in the UTurnAhead career change group. Membership is free. Recommended Reading: Dysfunctional Bosses.

    What a wonderful find! Thanks for the kind mention of http://www.midliferider.com. I’ve been thinking about the subject of midlife and boomers for several years now. The blog just sort of happened.

    Your site is lots of fun. I’m bookmarking it and plan to come back! I’ve got more books for your list if you’re interested!

    Hey Kevin, I would be very interesting in more reading on midlife and career changes! Please send me the titles that you would recommend or list them in your comments (other readers may also be interested).

    BTW, I really like reading your blog. Since I stopped riding 20 years ago when my first son was born, I’ve only day-dreamed of getting away and seeing the country. It’s fun to read your adventures, and the photos are great!

    I have a blog and website on midlife career change, more like straightforward career consulting. It’s a little different because I cover more on relocation and academics than some.

    Great ideas here. I will be sure to check out some blogs you mentioned and eventually refer to yours in *my* blog!

    I have reached a certain point in my life (just over a year to go until I am 50) when I suddenly have the urge to just up and walk away from all things normal to me.

    I dont own my own place, I have a job which I am bored with now and my relationship has gone a bit sour on me (I have never married). This might sound sad, but the only real thing that is keeping me from going is my two cats.

    I love writing and I have a feeling about writing a book, but its so noisey in this part of the world.

    I need some peace and quiet and to get away from the rat race.

    Am I alone in thinking thoughts of missed opportunities especially as a woman – or is it the start of the menopause and a combination of hormone imbalance?

    Hi Anna,

    I think what you are experiencing is much more common than you may realize. For the past year I have talked with literally hundreds of individuals like you (and me) who are rethinking our place in live and wondering what could have been.

    However, I now prefer to look at what can be. Sure, somethings could have been different, maybe better. But I’m had a multifaceted life with many great adventures and I’m now looking forward to writing the next chapter.

    Other countries censor content and not just rogue regimes such as the Iranian mullocracy. Poor people! http://www.baidu.com
