Celebrating the Women Over Fifty Who Write For and About Women over Fifty!

I created Women Over Fifty Network to ‘inspire’, ‘support’ and ‘celebrate’ women over fifty. Another way of ‘supporting’ other women is to Connect with them.

Below you’ll find sixteen pretty amazing women writers. They write about women who are over fifty and the interests and issues related to them. They’re damn good at what they do because they themselves are over fifty and live what we live every day. They’re us. They get it.

  • Some of these women offer wisdom and guidance on topics they’ve lived through or are currently living.
  • Others entertain us with their own (sometimes hilarious) stories of the challenges of aging.
  • Still others have found their life’s passion and are anxious to share their crafts, work, or hobbies with you.

Scroll through the descriptions below. When you find one that interests you, click on the button to visit their blog. Support these ladies by reading one of their articles. Inspire them to continue writing for us by leaving a comment. Commenting on blog posts is one of the fastest ways to make a connection with the author, and also with other commentors. (As random as it may sound, lasting friendships began with just one little blog comment.)

Bloggers bare themselves every day, and I know from experience that writing can be a lonely world unless we know someone is out there reading.

16 Women Over Fifty Bloggers | Women Over Fifty Network
Meet 'Leanne'


A blog celebrating Midlife, because the best is yet to come.

This is where I write about how much I’m enjoying Midlife and the empty nest. 

To quote Maya Angelou: “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style.”

I’d love you to read and leave a comment – it’s a great way to connect and share the journey.

Meet 'Deborah'


Looking for tips & ideas of style for the older woman whether 30 thru 80. Included are topics of positivity, responsibility for what we purchase and general topics of interest for those of maturity and growth.

I create. I research. I like to inspire. A wide range of interests is “my thing”. People surprise me and supplement my learning often.

Meet 'Nikki'


I am a spray painting queen, a dirt digging fanatic, and an over fifty fashion icon wanna be.

Together we can make your home and garden something to be proud of. Nothing fancy or expensive, but always fun and cute.

And did I mention fashion? I love clothes and shoes and although I may have dirt under my fingernails and paint splatters on the back of my arms, I’d love to share some style ideas with you.

I may be a Grandma but I don’t have to look like one.

Meet 'Pam'

Pam Lofton - Empty Nest


I love to share stories of our crazy lives, memories of days gone by, my many opinions, and fun things to do in our touristy town located just over the bridge from Charleston, SC.

So come on over and enjoy some discussions, a few reviews, and a lot of laughter. I would very much appreciate your company as I continue learning about life, love and lifestyle changes. The journey continues to be interesting!

Meet 'Diana'

Diana Cohen- The Wild Child


I’ve been described as an old soul & an eternal child wrapped into one eclectic package. “Nature-filled” living is my passion and I have extensive study and experience in this area.

My mission is to reconnect women with their true nature, gifts and personal magic and create a community of earth-loving women who support each other to rise in their full authenticity and step bravely forward to create a more beautiful life and sustainable world.

My goal is to open women’s hearts and minds to the beauty magic and healing powers of nature/Gaia.

Meet 'Caryn'

Caryn Payzant - The Midlife Guru


Since embarking in 2010 on the “second half” of my life, I’m committed to taking the wisdom and experience gained during my first 50 years and use it as a springboard in to the next 50.

You can count on me for trying new things, looking at old things in a new perspective, and doing all that I can to MAKE THE MOST OF LIFE AFTER 50 in the areas of healthy living, family, education, midlife musings, and meeting women of distinction over 40.

I am excited to share valuable and timely information to inspire you as you pursue your own dreams and aspirations.

Meet 'Meryl'

Meryl Baer- Six Decades & Counting


Once upon a time I worked for a financial firm in a strait-laced, crazy-in-its-own-way kind of world. I eventually quit and moved to the New Jersey shore.

Over the years I accumulated a wonderful husband, two sons, two daughters-in-law, five grandkids, assorted relatives and friends. Every summer they pack bathing suits and sunscreen and make their way to our door at the shore.

No one visits in winter, so I write…about whatever I want – travels, food-a favorite passion and pastime, current events – whatever is happening in a life lived.

Meet 'Linda'

Linda Luke - Life Coach Linda


I am passionate about helping women feel more peaceful, powerful, and positive as they navigate the ups and downs of life. I am described by others as being loving, soft-spoken, and emanating a sense of calm.

I have experienced what it is like to have a yucky life. There was a time when I felt my spirit was going to die if I didn’t change. It was through my own journey to freedom that I became inspired to become a coach and help others see and experience the incredible possibilities for their own lives.

When I am not  on the phone coaching people across the country, writing blogs, or leading workshops, you are likely to find me out for a walk or spending time with friends.  I am a young at heart grandma who also loves to read, learn, and volunteer.

Meet 'Janet'


I like to share about the various aspects of life as middle aged woman, from health and wellness, to marriage, parenting teenagers and/or grown children, career, and staying stylish.

I’m passionate about looking good on a budget – you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look it! I’m all about fashion from the real world, and a bit of an op shopper extraordinaire …

Meet 'Missy'


I’m just a midlife mom & wife who is trying to survive parenting and laundry. As long as there are margaritas, I’m good.

I love Jesus but I cuss a little. (OK maybe a lot).

I’m a humor blogger/writer and share tales of my insane family life as a midlife mom of older kids and a fantastic supportive hubby.

Oh did I mention my love of margaritas?

Meet 'Claire'


I’m a life coach, a nature lover, reliant upon my intuition and believer in everyday magic and miracles that can be found in the small things!

I’m passionate about coaching people who are going through a mid-life transition and who want to dig deep into their soul to find the very best, beautiful version of themselves.

I love seeing people like you discover passions and take action to achieve their dreams.

Meet 'Laurie'

Laurie Stone-Musings, Rants and Scribbles


I’ve been married several decades, have two grown sons, an old, timid cat, and a crazy, new dog.

I like to share insights on aging, family life, and the bumps, turns, and surprises along the way.

Meet 'Kathryn'

Kathryn Mayer - Writing Out Loud


An irreverent storyteller with a foul mouth and big heart, Kate Mayer is a writer, humorist, and activist writing out loud with humor and grace about parenting, social issues, midlife, and, sigh, gun violence prevention.

Mayer shares life as she lives it in Newtown, Connecticut. Since the Sandy Hook shootings, she writes and speaks often about and for Newtown, sharing stories to connect people to create kinder, safer communities.

Meet 'Kathy'

Kathy Marris-50 Shades of Age


I commenced 50 Shades of Age in 2012 as a platform to encourage and inspire women of my age. The majority of us have led a busy fulfilled life being mothers, wives and co-breadwinners.

After reaching that milestone age of 50, with kids leaving the nest and feeling unemployable, I felt a big void in my life. It was with this in mind that I decided to start up 50 Shades Of Age – a website where I could reach out to my sisters and tell them that their lives could be so much more. I wanted to be the voice for the new-age over 50 year olds to empower and motivate them to feel worthy again! We have so much to offer.

My real passion is travelling and photographing brilliant destinations both within Australia and overseas. I hope to continue to bring more stories about this very popular past-time for our age group.

Meet 'Jana'

Janet Botkins-Cabinart


Being married 31 years, a slight tendency toward a cat disorder (kept in check by a sensible husband), editing and book design, knitting, long walks with friends, reading great non-fiction and occasionally fiction, letter writing, gardening, dark chocolate, and hanging out in Mineral King in the summers.

My website is about Tulare County California. Finding, showing off, and focusing attention on the good parts of living here. Mineral King, Sequoia, Three Rivers, citrus, old buildings, general scenery of the area – it is all here for you to enjoy. Art has been my full-time profession since 1993 and CABINART is the name of my studio.

Meet 'Janis'

Janis Heppell- Retirementally Challenged


I started my blog in the months before I retired in part to work through my ambivalence about my upcoming life-changing event. Was I ready?  Would I have enough to do? Now, looking back several years later, my only regret is “why didn’t I do it sooner?”

No longer needing to navel-gaze about my retirement, I now enjoy writing about all sorts of topics, including travel, relationships, photography, gratitude, and whatever else pops in my head (even, sometimes, issues surrounding retirement and aging).

So, am I still Retirementally Challenged? Yes, but in a different way. I’m still retired and I still find challenges, but the challenges in my life are mostly positive and self-directed… they are what make life interesting.
