Retirement Blogs: Check These Out

We all know the #1 blog for real-life retirement information and advice is Satisfying Retirement. (!)

But, just in case this isn't the only blog you need to read, there are other excellent bloggers providing insight, humor, and valuable information. Several are listed on my blog roll down the right side of the page. Be sure to check those out on a regular basis.

Of course, a Google search found well over 1,500,000 blogs that deal with seniors, retirement, aging, simplicity and the like. While I have been a little too busy to check out all 1.5 million of them, here are a few that you might find worth your time. This list includes a mix of financial, relationship, travel-oriented, and fitness blogs and web sites:

Sharp Seniors

The GypsyNester

Fitness for Fifty

Good Financial Cents

Retire Early Lifestyle

Early Retirement the Middle Way

Try New Things

Rethinking the Dream

Retirement Revised

The Bold Life

RetireWow

Retire to

My Itchy Travel Feet

The Retirement Café

Olderhood

  2. Hi Bob...I just wanted to say thank you for including me on your list!

    You inspired me before I left work. Now that I have left work (early), I continue to enjoy reading your blog and I am honored to be on this list.

    1. My pleasure, Kelly.

      I just looked at your year of new adventure post...you are one busy lady with more stamps in her passport than most of us have stamps in a drawer.

    1. A couple of my "regulars" have stopped blogging over the past few weeks (Galen Pearl and Dick Glade). So, I'm looking for a few new sources of inspiration. This is always a fun project.

  4. Of course, I always say it - your blog is my favorite but I am enjoying getting my own blog off the ground. Not as dedicated I would like to be but.....! I really enjoy your lists and love this. I have "mined" your recommended lists for some of my own. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Consider the time spent as your present to yourself!

      BTW, gutsy last post on your blog. Isn't it interesting that those most vitriolic and hate-filled in their opinions often choose the "anonymous" tag?
