My Parent’s Blog – Seniors and Blogs

Wow! Technology never stops.

This morning my parents, age 86 and 82, told me that they went to Google and started a blog.  This is the coolest thing because they love to write and they love their computers.  Also they have lots of great opinions about helping others, ethics, and building community.

I cannot wait to read their postings, and with their permission, I’ll post their successes and challenges here.

I’ve just read that last year research found that the percentage of seniors writing in blogs is only one tenth of a percent smaller than the number of teenagers.  I will look for more information on this.  The first link that I discovered is below, but it is a report, not the original research.

As you can see, my parents are not the first seniors to start a blog, but it is going to be great fun to watch them work.

Here are some interesting links about seniors and blogging to check out.
