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.
Guess how I came across this post?? At another social network, Blogcatalog! Just typed in your name, and walla, presto! I found my Twittering was also continually updated with them as well, so now i am wondering….are you a member of Blogcatalog??
Know what you mean about “never run out of things to write about”. I am exactly the same, and your Blogs and radio show always give me new ideas 🙂
Good to run into you again. Looks like Perrie Meno-Pudge and Boomer Divas unit again. Thanks for this site, Started to Twitter today and my Midlife brain can learn new tricks, a bit more slowly, but eventually we get there.
First of all Rosie, I am honored that you would want to tell my story. Thank you Deb for your comments and continued support.
Wow! Perri Meno-Pudge! It’s been awhile. Your cartoons grace my MenopauseMama website ever since Daytona Beach. Good to connect with you again also.
