I’m the host for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs #300.
The boomer blog roundup is a collection of like-minded blogs cooperating to share their best stories of interest to the Baby Boomer Generation.
For the 300th Best of Boomer Blogs, Laura Lee Carter of the Midlife Crisis Queen says: "It's been years now since I first joined this blog roundup, and now I run it. What a great way to connect with other boomers and share the bounty of information which can only help us all age in a better way."
Today Laura Lee wants to share new information about boomer mental health. Boomers share a specific time in American history. They grew up on heavier career and job competition and 24/7 in-your-face commercialism, as American culture moved away from trust in each other and in government. How do these facts affect boomer mental health as a generation? Here's what the Midlife Crisis Queen has learned.
Lisa Garon Froman of TAO Flashes writes that spring is a perfect metaphor for midlife. It’s a time of growth, and it brings an opportunity to step out of the shadows and make space for new interests or long-denied passions.
On my blog, I let consumers know about an action by the Federal Trade Commission temporarily shutting down a Brooklyn-based company that allegedly used deception, threats, and intimidation to induce elderly consumers to pay for medical alert systems they neither ordered nor wanted.
Be sure to check back next week to see what baby boomer bloggers are thinking and writing about.
