When you express appreciation it is of course because somebody has provided something good for you, an act of kindness or a compliment perhaps. When you receive it, then hopefully it is because you have done something decent for them.
I am therefore please to express my appreciation to Kathy Gottberg of SmartLiving365.com who posted a brilliant entry recently listing a wide range of websites and blogs aimed specifically at retired people, most of which I had never come across. Do take a look and check them out.
The trouble with so many great retirement sites written by retirees for retirees is that they compete in search engines with insurance companies, financial experts and others seeking to peddle their wares to the grey haired brigade. Buried at the bottom of the mountain, many just simply don't get the attention they deserve.
Moreover the more I read, the more I realise just how many of us are on this enormous adventure called "retirement" and, at the same time, trying to make sense of and create purpose out of it.
So a big thank you to Kathy for her research and results, oh and also for including this blog with them! It is much appreciated.
