I am continuing on my summer surfing holiday exploring the internet for interesting and positive sites about older people.
Like the early explorers searching for “the new world”, you’re not sure where you are going, nor exactly what you are looking for. Inevitably there are lots of blind alleys which turn into dead ends. It can be very frustrating and it is not always easy to re-trace your steps, even with your computer’s history leaving your tracks behind you. Hours can go by, 100’s of web pages written and read and you still don’t find anything interesting.
Almost all internet searches pull you towards America and somewhere on my travels I found a reference to a statement by the American Association of Retired Persons which claimed that only 3% of all bloggers are elderly.
So I find myself like Christopher Columbus sailing through unchartered waters, absolutely sure that there are new things to discover ahead of me. So far though, my cloud surfing has revealed no new worlds. I will redouble my efforts, hang off the highest masts with my telescope and look for “land ahoy”.
Tomorrow is another day!
