Have a plan, man!: One more really good suggestion

It has occurred to me that when I wrote about activities to look into at the time of retirement, I didn’t mention the most important one that I took up after retirement … blogging!

I so admire those of you who still work or are young mothers, and still have the time and energy to write your entertaining blogs that I so much enjoy reading.  But I just don’t think I would have had the energy … or attention span … to write a blog while I was working.  But, since my retirement … what a blast!

So I hope any of you who are readers but not bloggers will give blogging some serious thought when it comes time to retire.  It  has added immeasurably to my life.

    So true, Sandy. I don’t know how busy mothers or grandmothers raising grandchildren manage to do all that they do and still create such interesting blogs. I’m glad you and Jenny dragged me, kicking and screaming, into blogging, though. There are some really interesting people out there that I would never have “met” otherwise.

    Actually, writing a blog has made my work life much more enjoyable, if slightly less productive. I don’t have internet access at home, so all of my blogging is done at work. Luckily, I have a boss who doesn’t mind me using the company resources, so long as I do the required work first! Not everyone is so blessed.

    I hear that sometimes after retirement people kind of lose purpose. I think that a creative discipline like blogging must really help ward that off!

    Oh agreed. Blogging is a large chunk of my life.. as is the photography. For me, they each exist because of the other, but that would never happen without all of the incredible folks in the blogging community. Gems like you!

    Linda — Now that you’re blogging, do you ever think, “Why doesn’t everybody want to do this!”? I do. But it is so hard to explain to a non-blogger what fun might be awaiting them if they just give it a try! And, as you said, what interesting people they might meet! 🙂

    Suldog – You are indeed blessed with your work situation. I don’t think most bosses would be so generous — but of course, “most bosses” wouldn’t have YOU working for them. 🙂

    Beth — I think you are absolutely right. It certainly seems that way to me! 🙂

    Hilary — I’m having a little trouble with using photos right now, but even without them, I always enjoy the writing. And I truly do feel blessed by the friends I have made through blogging. Thank you, you truly are one of the special ones. 🙂

    And I’m so glad you do – it has enriched my life reading your posts. Some of them are still floating around in my mind long after you wrote them.

    In fact, I remember the first one I ever read – it was about the crinolines and I think the school locker.

    Oh, Carla, you are so good for my ego! 🙂 Thank you, friend. I really enjoy your blog too. And I hope sometime we will be in Tulsa at the same time and get to meet in person.
