My very first blog post went “live” in cyberspace in August of 2006. I wrote a piece called “Marriage: The Second Time Around.” I had just returned from a fabulous honeymoon to St. Lucia with my new husband Nate. It was also a self-promotional effort for my newly released book, Whatever! A Baby Boomer’s Journey Into Middle Age.
Blogging, for me, has been a wonderful way for me to promote my books but it has also given me the opportunity to express myself on a wide variety of subjects. Since I am no longer working in the established media, I can now say what I want -without being offensive of course.
I have several blogs with different themes. My babyboomerbev blog focuses mainly on family-related issues. BoomerWorld is a collection of my thoughts as a member of the world’s largest generation. MenopauseMama allows me to keep it real when it comes to the issues related to menopause and other women’s health matters. Talk2Bev focuses more on media tips from an Insider’s point of view.
I love being a journalist unplugged and, believe me, I’ll never run out of things to write about.
