Baby boomer bloggers focus on issues that hit close to home

Flag-White-House-IMG_3395-300x200Tom Sightings of Sightings Over Sixty is the host for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs #366.

Sightings writes about post he did last year focusing on a book, “Staying Power: Age-Proof Your Home for Comfort, Safety and Style” by Rachel Adelson. Some of the benefits of staying in your own home, or "aging in place": It costs less, keeps you in familiar surroundings, and offers greater independence.

On the Modern Senior, Amy Blitchok takes a look at recentInnovations in Age Friendly Products,” while Laura Lee of The Midlife Crisis Queen, who recently retired to a small town in Colorado, has been explored the ruins of an old coal mine and went kayaking at the state park.

On my blog, I write that consumers need to be aware of hidden risks from harmful chemicals in beauty products. While manufacturers have been phasing out some chemicals there are still dangers that consumers need to know about.

So, be sure to take a look at the articles by these hard-working boomer bloggers. And, be sure to leave a comment. Boomer bloggers love to hear from readers.
