The Ultimate Resource Guide for the Over 40 Blogger (and Over 40 Woman)

The Ultimate Resource Guide for the Over 40 Blogger (and Over 40 Woman)
I've been wanting to write an online resource guide for the over 40 blogger for sometime now, and finally it's here! As well as being a resource guide for bloggers, it's also intended for over 40 women who don't necessarily blog (and 50+ and 60+ women too - it's not only for those between the ages of 40 and 49).

I'm often asked via email and through social media how to connect with more 40+ women and bloggers - it's wrong of me to think it's obvious just because I know who and where they are (you build up a lot of connections after more than three years blogging). I thought a post with all this information in one place was long overdue.

So here is my ultimate guide to all the best places that I go to for Twitter chats, incredible style, information on health and well being for the over 40s and more. I'm intending this to be a constantly updated post, so PLEASE - if you know of any more that you feel I should add please leave a comment with your suggestions.

Tomorrow I will publish my own "Over 40 Fashion Bloggers You Should Know" post to continue my Bloggers You Should Know series and will update this post with the link. I know this guide will help you find a ton of inspiration... enjoy!

    1. I have now, Judy - thanks so much for the link! I've updated the post so that it's on there now. I've done many searches on Facebook for relevant groups but to no avail. I think the Facebook search tool is just a bit rubbish in finding the ones I want!

  9. Here I am!

    I am Sevi, 43, Dutch and started blogging a few weeks ago after toying with the idea for nearly 2 years. I was curious to see if there were any other 40+ style bloggers out there, although my inspiration comes from many under 30-s :-).

    You can find me here:

    www.mostlyme-certainothers.com

    I welcome any visitors, comments, advice or questions.

    Great job Catherine :-).

    2. Thank you so much Catherine :-).

      Our styles differ a lot but i still like to look at your blog.

  10. Thanks for this. I am a blogger in her 40s and I have wanted to know how to connect better with my target demographic. Looking forward to your list of bloggers over 40 to know.

    1. I'm so glad, Laurie!! Don't forget the post I'm publishing tomorrow will include bloggers over the age of 40, not just those *in* their 40s. There are at least a couple in their 50s, and there are loads more besides! Check Sylvia's 40+ Style blog list for more :)

  14. Great post as usual Catherine. Great tips on how to find the fashion/style blogs but mine and many other s are lifestyle without the number in the title so often hard to find. Will definitely be looking at some of the lovely ladies that have left comments here.
    I'm at www.pricelesslifeofmine.com I'd love feedback and comments from anyone and would love to find more 40+ bloggers out there to connect with.
    Thanks again

    1. It wasn't as a post purely to find fashion blogs, Stephanie - more of a resource guide (why I included all the websites, groups and Twitter accounts which are for over 40 women, not just fashion bloggers). The fashion blogs list was an extra, if you like! But I'm glad you've found the post helpful :))

      Don't forget that you should add key information to help people find your blog in your blog title in Settings - if you hover over my blog name in the tab it's called "Not Dressed As Lamb - Over 40 Fashion". Add that key information in there and you'll get more people finding you! C x

  15. Thank you for this list! As an over 40 makeup artist and beauty blogger, it's easy for me to navigate the beauty changes, but not so for the fashion. I will be following all of these!

  16. Thanks for this, Catherine. As an over 50 blogger (is that an over 40 blogger +10??) the whole learning curve has been steep but so much fun.

    1. It IS a steep learning, curve - you're absolutely right, Susan! And I love your 40+10 description. Does that mean you're a "40 Plus Plus 10" blogger...?!!!! Glad you liked the post :)

  17. Thanks for sharing this! I'm a fairly new blogger in her 40's and am always looking for new blogs to follow in this demographic!

  18. This is a very handy list. There needs to be more connections for the 40+ woman. I will check all the suggestions out as I work to connect to other bloggers

  20. Aaah so THATS's where all the 40+ bloggers are hanging out!! ;) Most of my blogging buddies are at least 5 years younger that me — 15+ in some cases!! :) I quite like getting down with 'da kids' though :) #BrillBlogPosts

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by, Caro... I'm so glad you've found some new bloggers, groups and communities!! I know what you mean about getting down wiv da kids(!) - I have readers of all ages, some are teenagers who I chat to regularly. I wouldn't have it any other way, but many bloggers of 40+ feel isolated as if all other bloggers are much much younger. I like the idea of bloggers of ALL ages interacting with each other :))
