I've only been blogging for a few months. I was beginning to think I was too old as most of the blogs I looked at were discussing breast feeding and home schooling. Now I'm not uninterested in those topics, especially when they concern my grandchildren. I just didn't have much in common with most of those bloggers. A young woman I have enjoyed reading is Rachel. She always has a positive outlook, is a prolific knitter, teaches music from her home, homeschools her children and has a great sense of humor. I wonder if she ever has a down day or she just blogs on her "good" days. Seriously, I think she is an admirable wife & mother.

Recently I have found some blogs of women closer to my generation. Although I don't raise goats or chickens, I find I can relate to their lives and memories. I'm enjoying Life on a Southern Farm and I have a new friend over at Wyoming Breezes, so check them out if you get a chance.

I am glad that we have discovered each other's blogs. I look forward to learning more about your area and your interests.

You're never too old to enjoy reading and writing blogs! I'm older than you are (a couple of years anyway), and I enjoy blogs a lot more than myspace and facebook which seem so superficial by comparison. The photos on your blog are GREAT! Keep up the good work and keep blogging!

Hi Mary,
I understand. When I first started blogging I felt out of place with all the young mommy bloggers.
I have found so many interesting blogs and learn something new just about every time I visit around.( I guess you can teach an old dog or Granny new tricks).
I even learn new things from some of the young Mommy bloggers too.
Thank-you for your visits and comments and I have enjoy my visits with you also.
Have a great day.

Hi Mary, I followed you here from a comment you left on Nancy's blog. I am also a 50 something blogger. Though I do read many blogs of younger women, and thoroughly enjoy them, I do get a rush when I run across a blog I like of someone old enough that their childrearing days are behind them. ;-Þ
