Happy Third Birthday

The 70-Something blog will be three years old tomorrow.  This is its 316th post.  So far, I have kept my promise to write twice a week.  (In case you haven’t noticed, I am rather compulsive.)

My blog provider lets me see how many readers I have, and although I am not The Huffington Post (and don’t want to be), my numbers are steadily increasing.  People have asked me if I ever run out of things to say.  So far—no.  My husband Peter can attest that I always have something to say.  But am I saying something meaningful?  Are my observations about being in my eighth decade (yikes!) connecting to others? 

I have heard from readers who are a couple of generations younger than I am and from folks who are older than I.  I am very pleased when anyone takes a few minutes to read what I have to say.

I began this blog to process what is happening to me as I grow older.  Hearing that keeping a journals may be good for one’s health may have had something to do with it.  By now, it’s as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth.

Please continue to read.  And thank you.

Hi Judy

Thank you for writing this BLOG. From past exoperience of writing once a week on Friday's I know the joys and pains of doing what you are doing. Mine was not a BLOG, I don't think they were abouut then, it was an email that started out "short" but ended up long.

This month I will no longer be in my 17's - whoops typo - 70's and I've been searching for another person who writes regularly using her/his PC. (We do need a pronoun for that, maybe ite ie: using ite's PC.)

Keep on keeping on

Happy Blogging Birthday.


Congratulations on your blog's anniversary! I've really enjoyed reading your blog. I am exactly half your age (in my mid-30s) but as a married mom of two young boys, I savor your wisdom about sustaining a long, happy marriage; raising kind, successful kids; and working for years at a job you really enjoy. I look forward to reading many more years of your posts!


Congrats on keeping a blog up for 3 years!
