  1. Your list is spot on! Some of the best bloomers in their respective industries.

    Great Job

  2. Thanks, Priska, for the site mention :-)

    Some of these blogs are new to me, so I’m off to check them out now. Thanks for compiling the list for us.

  3. Beautiful list of resources and people!

  4. I feel like we are sisters. I said yes, to almost everything on your list. This bloom time is especially meaningful for me because my mother died at my age from breast cancer. What a void she left not only in my life but the world. She fought almost 7 years – right at the time when she needed to bloom (children leaving home, etc). Her short life has been a message to me to live everyday to it’s fullest. Discover who I am, share my gifts, tell as it is, experience life, meet new people, keep an open mind, learn new things and fight for the things that need to be corrected in this world. Right on Sista! Power to the Bloomers!!

    • my mum died from BC, i turned 50 a few months later. -2008- she lived for about 4 years after her diagnosis and man i miss her still terrribly at times. just to say “when did your flushes stop again mum?” (for the millionth time)

  5. Priska:

    I love this! As an “experienced” individual myself, I very much appreciated literally everything in those bulleted lists. Particularly…

    Being able to combine previous knowledge with present interests to create new outcomes.
    and
    Having reached a point where it’s time to tell it like it is.

    As you know, a group of very generous people has been helping me through this process recently and this post really helped me connect some dots.

    Good work!

  6. I’m happy to know a decent number of these groovy boomers Priska. Although I’m sure the other ones I’ve never heard of are worthy of a look, I’m not sure which ones are worth a click. It’s probably just me, but a little more context explaining the nature of these sites or your experience with them would be nice to help me decide. However, if you intended to keep this minimalist, which I normally encourage, job well done!

  7. I can’t wait to explore this list, Priska! Thank you so much for including me.

  8. What a wonderful list, Priska — many of whom I’ve yet to meet.
    Some fantastic site names among those, too. “Life After Tampons” LOL!
    Thanks for including SoWrite; I really didn’t expect it, given the delightful “boomer/bloomer” nature of your list.
    Thinking about it more, though, many of us who led to the conception of SoWrite are indeed at That Certain Age. You’re right — we have something to say!
    As Debra said, I can’t wait to explore the rest of this list. Joel has a good point, too. Maybe a follow-up for a later post or two?
    Thanks again, Priska!

  9. Thanks so much for including me, Priska!

  10. Thanks for including me! I’m off to explore some of these wonderful spots!

  11. Hi Priska,

    This is a great list! I already read some of these guys, and look forward to discovering some new blogging talent!

  12. I’m not sure I’d be able to do what these guys are doing – picking up a completely new skillset at an older age? Awesome!

  13. I’m technically not a baby boomer — to be 100% accurate, I’m the child of two of them, but I have developed a certain sense of urgency and “it’s got to happen now” attitude about my creative endeavors, and so I can identify with what you say about feeling like it’s “now or never.” I guess I feel blessed that my “midlife crisis” came early.

  14. Wonderful list! I’m familiar with a few of them and I’m looking forward to checking out the rest of them. Also looking forward to following along with your tips and tools. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot. I have to smile at the thought that you were once a flower child. It brings forth an image in my mind of loose cotton shirts, long skirts, beads, and peace signs, but I now realize that I don’t really know the definition and I’m intrigued.

  15. I had just come by to say ‘hi’ and look what you’ve done. You are a gem. Love this and thank you.
