Blogging and Boomer Thoughts

You are probably wondering, “What are boomer thoughts? Well, for me it is all that happens in the life of a baby boomer. Those are the things that many of us blog about.

One of the great things about blogging is that it provides a voice for many of us who sometimes feel that no one is listening in our immediate circles. Some of the thoughts include:

  • Caregiving
  • Pension
  • Retirement options
  • Retirement issues
  • Purpose driven work
  • Work to add to retirement
  • Grand children and related joys and issues
  • Children and related joys and issues
  • Grief from loved ones missing in our lives
  • Mates
  • Making money online and offline
  • Health, health, health
  • Collections
  • Music
  • Art
  • Hobbies
  • Dating
  • Life after Divorce
  • Oh, did I already say caregiving?

Now I did not include everything. You can add more. But are you blogging about any of these things? Please share what is on your mind that you are blogging about.  I know it is one of the reasons some of you have more than one blog.

7 Ways To Put the “B” Back in Your Blogging-Part 7

This entry is part [part not set] of 7 in the series 7 Ways to Put the B Back in Blogging

You can put the ” B” back into your blogging by turning your blog posts into articles. Ok, what do I mean. Well, suppose you posted a rant about health  care.  The rant may only be three paragraphs.  But since your entire blog may be on health care advocacy you can create an article focused on ways to advocate for the prevention of a disease, etc.

The article could outline steps for doing an  advocacy campaign in your community. It could also have a link in the resource box sending folks back to your blog. In addition, if you have an ebook or any opt-in on your site the more traffic that comes the more you may get folks to make some kind of action.

Of course there are loads of article directories you can submit the article for publishing. A few of my favorites are Ezinearticles, Search Warp and Articles for Boomers. Put your article in all of them.

So, in this final segment of this series, I encourage you to find ways to keep the “B” in your blogging.
