The BEST of Boomer Blogs in 2013!

by midlifecrisisqueen on January 20, 2013

Did you miss us?  The Blogging Boomers’ Blog Carnival took a little mid-winter break, but we’re BACK, and with the new name: The Best of Boomer Blogs!

Here we will continue to bring you some of the most timely and interesting posts from a few GREAT blogs!  Let’s get started:

SoBabyBoomer says the global market outlook is far less rosy than the emperors-minus-their-clothes would have you believe.  Just as the timeless fable warns, sometimes it takes a single voice in a crowd to tell everyone the emperor wears no clothes.

Tom Sightings, at his newly named blog Sightings Over Sixty, reports that he went to lunch with a few of his friends, and tells us what Baby Boomer guys talk about when the women aren’t around.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about a controversial new anti-obesity advertisement by Coca-Cola and an ad by Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy group, which shows the real damage to your health from drinking soda.

Living in Dubai is a never ending adventure! But Roger and Katie, over at Arabian Tales and other Amazing Adventures, are keeping true to their promise to explore as many unique experiences as possible.  It takes a lot of hard work to keep this promise, but someone has got to do it!  2012 was an eclectic mix of adventures. Here are their absolute top picks:  2012 Top Adventures In and Around Dubai.

And let us not forget our newest member Sara Cornell from Life after Marriage and Blue Blinds Media.  She has a timely article on shredding and how to get organized in this new year!

And last but not least, my new book: Find Your Reason to Be Here: The Search for Meaning in Midlife is finally out and available in both paperback and e-book formats…  Be the first to read it!

This is my labor of love dedicated to my lost brother John, to help others understand how normal and natural midlife emotional change is.  It is only through a deeper understanding that we can reap true benefit from this new rite of passage.  Hope to have it for sale in just a few weeks!

Hi Laura…
I appreciate seeing your new book! At 62 years old, I understand the suicide ideation. I moved from Denver to Louisville KY but with jobs being so scarce, I found myself “homeless” and living with friends for some time. I felt useless, alone (although the friends would have been there for me if I’d only talked to them). The thought of suicide came more and more frequently. I managed to get through those days and now have my own place. That made a big difference. Now I have my home and activities I enjoy thoroughly. My son isn’t real happy about my move, and although I tried to explain to him that for me it was my homecoming! He doesn’t agree, but he does understand. I enjoy my life now tremendously and I’m so very glad I didn’t act on the impulses back then.

Dear Laura:
My new book is NOT about suicide, but more about how to avoid making rash decisions at midlife… just like your recent experience exemplifies! Thanks for reading and writing to me. — Laura Lee
