There are lots of magnificent women out there challenging the status quo and the negative stereotypes about becoming an older woman. You can find some really great blogs for women over 50, mostly written by individuals and a few by groups of women. There are blogs about fashion, lifestyle, health, nutrition, ageing well and everything in between.
We’ve compiled this list of some of the very best English language blogs for women over 50. These women are well worth following through their blogs and social media presence. When compiling this list, we became very aware that all the women on it are white. We tried to find midlife women bloggers of other ethnicities as prolific as these women, but we failed to find any. If you know of one/some please get in touch!
