Update of Top 100 Senior Blogs & Sites

By Michelle Seitzer / Posted on 14 May 2012

Check out our update of the ever-popular Top 100 listing of boomer/senior blogs!Last March, we offered a list of our favorite websites for boomers and seniors. Since its release, the blog post has generated 83 comments, most coming from site visitors who were grateful for the extensive compilation.

We also received quite a few suggestions for additional resources over the past year. With all of this in mind, check out our update, “New Sites for 2012.” Also, if you haven’t perused it before, browse the original top 100 list too. Most of these sites are still operational, with the exception of Swap Meet Dave (under the “Tickling Your Funnybone” section) and Crowning Touch USA (under the “Moving, Downsizing and Transition Services” section); links have been disabled accordingly.

New Categories:

  • Just for Boomers — This site promises “boomer news for all your boomer needs.” Head to the SharpSeniors blog to learn more.
