We all need social connection but some of us simply can’t make it down to our group meeting at the local cafe every day and many of us have a tough time meeting new people in general. “Elderblogging” is a great way for older adults to discover and participate in a huge support network without the need for physical travel.
Many online communities are now especially created by and for older adults focused on exchanging info, sharing their collective wisdom, or simply swapping stories about life.
The elderblogging community, like any other, offers a richness of personal stories and a wealth of information about everything from senior discounts to money management tips to tackling chronic pain.
Hopping on to read and share does not require special tech-savvy skills. Simply Google search “senior blogs” to find these online hotspots and type away as the thoughts come.
