Round table: Am I too old to blog?


Like so many bloggers...blogging is a creative outlet and a sense of community for me. It's a bit like my creative cocaine. {If one were to indulge in said activities, that is!} Some days I'm uninspired but most days, I feel satiated by the blogosphere and a sense of relief that I have something to plug into other than work, chores or TV. I've had the freedom to flex my writing muscles again, too which is a welcome release. Finally, it's allowed me to meet wonderful people, write some really honest posts and even test drive new products while making a few extra bucks on the side. Who's to say there's anything wrong with that?

Lately, I have been contemplating...what's next for the blogging world? And more importantly, am I too old to blog? Truth is, it's a hobby of mine that I really love. But do my readers love me? Is my content worth anything? Is there an age limit to blogging?

I don't have the answers, clearly, because this post went live this morning but I am curious to hear what you think.

Recently, a blogger friend told me that maybe I need to find a new or different subset of readers to tap into. Ones more my age with a family focus. I can't argue that point...it resonated. However, I would be nothing if it weren't for the people I've already engaged with. And truth is, I quite like my readers! I think the questions are...

How do you attract a new circle of readership?
How do you make time for that amidst life's demands?
And, are you too old to blog at 34?
What do you think is next for the blogging world?

Just some deep thoughts for your Wednesday morning.
