Over 55 lifestyle blog or newsletter??

Does anyone read a lifestyle/coaching newletter or blog aimed at women over 55?  I have subsribed to Cheryl Richardson's weekly newsletter for years.  Over time, it seems to have evolved into an "ALL ABOUT ME" newsletter. 

I rarely relate anymore. 

I would love an uplifting newsletter/blog that would be encouraging, positive, and maybe even lighthearted.  I've tried 55+ style newsletters, which are great, but I am looking for something more. 

Any ideas?

AARP has a magazine, newsletter & a message board.

Try searching for Satisying Retirement, @mac116.  That author has retired his blog but it is archived.  On the right hand side, he lists a number of blogs.  When you go to one of those, there is usually even more blogs listed.  Worth a try.

I don't think this breaks any rules here 🤷🏼‍♀️

I've never been able to relate to anyone else's life style or coaching blogs.  I've blazed (or stumbled) my own trails through life.

I don't have advice on exactly what you're looking for, but I do like homeiswheretheboatis dot net.

The photos are gorgeous, she has two adored bichons, and some interesting ideas, decor, food, styling. I don't actually do anything she features, but love the photos.

Thanks to those who have responded.  I will post if something turns out to be wonderful.  I often want/need inspiration, a gentle push, or a new idea to get me moving from the chaise or chair and the latest book.

Rather than reading blogs and vlogs and newsletters and other stuff, why not just live your life as it fits you?

I find it interesting when someone ask for suggestions people respond with “do your own thing”
I can relate; just when I was younger and looked at magazines which I still do to get information and then choose to do my own thing
I have found many YouTube videos for 55 plus

(interesting note she was the Romper Room children’s show teacher. I loved Romper Room

Let me know your findings
