This week I’m the lucky host of the Blogging Boomers Carnival. If this is your first time, let me explain the concept. A blog carnival is a collection of bloggers who write about a similar theme – in this case Baby Boomers. Each week, one of the members gets to host the carnival and post links to the best of the previous week.
I’m this week’s host and as always, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce you to some fabulous boomer bloggers. Please take a look at the excerpts below and click on the links. I think you’ll find each of these writers has something interesting to say.
