I recently became a contributing writer for olderhood.com. I’ve been following their blog for some time, and have found that their contributors offer interesting perspectives on aging and retirement. Bill Storie, the founder, is of Scottish origin but lives in Bermuda, as do some other contributors. Contributors also hail from England, the US, and France. Here is what the blog says about itself:

Olderhood.com is a blog dedicated to the thoughts, feeling, emotions and issue of the oldsters amongst us.

Health ~ Quality of Life ~ Money ~ Spirit, soul and intimacy

Olderhood is owned and managed by oldsters.
People who experience the ups and downs of retirement,
or approaching-retirement,
EVERY day.
It does not rely on the feelings of people in their mid-years who imagine, or surmise,
what physical and psychological issues face the older generation.

In other words, to understand life in the Olderhood, “you have to be there”.
We are.

I do encourage readers interested in aging or retirement to look at the other offerings on the Olderhood site; there’s plenty of interesting stuff. You won’t need to look there for my contributions, though; what I write for olderhood.com will also be posted here at Beyond Halfway.

    I will definitely take a look at the site. My retirement is exactly two months away and I have been planning for it for the last two years. Actually longer than that as I chose to live in a very small town where I could afford a quiet lifestyle when a regular paycheck stopped coming in and my main source of income will be social security – yes it can be done!! Thanks for the tip on the blog!

      I hope you use some of the extra time you’ll have in retirement to write more on your blog. You’re off to a really good start there!

    I appreciate you highlighting Olderhood.com. Despite a goggle alert looking for such web sites, this site has never been alerted. So, thanks for this, and yes, it is quite an interesting site on aging.

      Thanks for your comment, Wendy, and thanks for following my blog. Besides the Olderhood website, I’ve found their Facebook group interesting. It’s a very diverse group of older adults!
