As I launched myself into retirement I found I was travelling new roads. Although I know that millions of people have been down these roads before me, where are they when I need them? Could I learn from their experience? In this day of the internet I did not find a lot of resources for retired people. In the Olden Days you just bought a book or got a book from the library. In this day and age, most people of retirement age are computer savvy, so I thought a website might be a useful resource. At the same time, I was recruited for a clinical trial at UBC to test a computer software program that might improve cognitive functioning. This trial included education sessions that I thought would be interesting to others. As I started posting, many retirement bloggers began to appear and I have added content from many of them. It’s been an interesting process and I’ve made one two new blooger friends so far.
As I travelled along the retirment road I ended up on Hornby Island which is a small Gulf Island off the coast of Vancouver Island where I have rented a rustic house and have had many adventures. And I ended up transitioning from health care to teaching English on line.
What I am not going to do: Frequent emails, spam etc.
However I have added some ads to see if they generate any income from this site. So far I have made $ 1.00. Yes that’s one dollar.
