For this carnival, boomer bloggers are writing about Veteran’s Day, boomers and the Great Recession, traveling in Istanbul, chocolate cake, election results for consumers, and surviving a snowstorm after Hurricane Sandy.
Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are leading
corporations, serving as governmental officials, heading up non-profits,
worrying about retirement, and experiencing layoffs at a higher rate than
younger workers. They’re also reinventing themselves in trying economic times,
with some looking for their dream jobs to keep them happy in retirement.
At each stage in their lives, boomers have changed things. They’re continuing to make America different as they begin entering into their retirement years.
In addition to The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, members of the Blogging Boomer Carnival are: The Accidental Locavore, The Midlife Crisis Queen, Sightings From 60, Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures, So Baby Boomer, and Vaboomer.
