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.

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Awesome blog!
