Baby bloggers focusing on consumer issues, housing, and the holidays

Christmas DecorationsI’m the host for this week’s Best of Boomer Blogs #384.

Many of the boomer bloggers in our group are focusing on the holidays.

For me, I’ll start writing my holiday articles in a couple of days. I’ve been focusing on consumer news, which I enjoy writing about: a recommendation to ban powdered caffeine, why I support labeling genetically engineered food, what not to say after a car accident, and this week’s consumer settlement – PointRoll agreeing to pay $750,000 to resolve charges it violated consumers’ privacy by circumventing the privacy settings in Apple’s Safari Web browsers.

And I even wrote an article about Kim Kardashian’s nude photos, which I unfortunately, or fortunately, got a lot of hits.

Like me, Laura Lee of the Midlife Crisis Queen isn’t focused on the holidays yet. She’s all excited about the big news from her mountain build site. The trusses are up.

Our other bloggers getting ready for the holidays:

Tom Sightings of Sightings From Sixty says it's getting to be the season… so the other night Tom found a box sitting outside his front door. It was big, and he picked it up with two hands. It didn't weigh much. "Oh, this is light," he called to his wife, as he elbowed his way back indoors. "What?" she asked. She was in the kitchen, taking off her coat. "Hey! Don't go feeling those packages." For the rest of the story, go to “I Guessed a Christmas Present.

Winter may not be officially here, but the weather the past couple of weeks defies the calendar. Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting, rather than lamenting nasty weather, takes advantage of the time to cocoon indoors and enjoy a laid-back day at home. Read about “Cocooning in the Cold” on her blog.

Amy Blitchok of the Modern Senior says for people suffering with diabetes and working to manage the disease, the holidays can be a time of stress. However, with some simple preparation and planning, holiday meals don’t have to disrupt diabetes control and holiday enjoyment.

Be sure to take a look at these articles by baby boomer bloggers. And, leave them a message. Boomer bloggers love to hear from readers.
