The other day a friend of mine asked me why I started a blog in my 50’s. She hinted (although didn’t come right out and say it) that blogging was for younger people.
At the time I gave her my standard answer of wanting to be able to work from home and work at times that suited me and my family rather than times that suited someone else’s business needs.
But when I got home, I thought about it a little more and realised there are many reasons why I started a blog in my 50’s. I thought I would share them with you so that you might be inspired to start one too…
Are you looking for a genuine work from home opportunity? Something to supplement your income or even to replace it? Are you tired of being told that there is a work from home business for you to join right away only to find out you have to spend most nights out of the house promoting it?
I may have the answer for you. But you will have to consider a few things first because this isn’t for everyone, but for those who do take it up, it becomes a lifestyle as much as a business.
Here’s my blogging for dummies post. You might want to bookmark it because it contains links to lots of other useful content and it’s doubtful you will want to read all of it in one sitting.
To be honest, I don’t really like the term dummies because that would suggest that you are not forward thinking, bright and articulate, and I know that you are.
How do I know that you are all of these things? That’s easy, you found your way to this post. Okay so you might have come across it on Pinterest and just clicked a button and here you are, or you may have seen it on a Facebook page and clicked over from there, but the fact that you are here tells me 4 things about you…

This post is going to show you that sometimes, from chaos you can get clarity. Real clarity. Something that smacks you in the face and makes you sit up and take notice.
I think I always knew this, but recently things have happened to demonstrate just how impactful this can be.
I’m having a new kitchen fitted at the moment and I totally underestimated how much chaos it was going to bring to my home and my life.
I have been without a kitchen sink and dishwasher for over 2 weeks now which means I have had to resort to washing up in the bath. I know, what a hardship right. Yes I get it but kneeling on the hard tiled floor trying to wash my dishes in the tub is no fun I can tell you.
Oh, and as well as no sink, the fridge has had to be moved to the garden-room. We stuck the microwave on top of it so that, in essence, is my kitchen. A fridge with a microwave on top and a little table to the side of it with some cutlery on it.
Are you wondering how to avoid being added to email lists? It’s a nuisance isn’t it? We click on something online and the next thing we know is we are being bombarded with emails from someone we don’t know.
To be honest, most of us end up on email lists because we have requested something online – a freebie or a trial offer or a discount for something.
We wanted the freebie, or the trial but we didn’t want the endless emails that followed it. Why do we get these and how can we stop them?
