While I usually consider myself to be the low-tech tool in the high-tech shed, I am gradually changing.There’s an old adage that goes, “grow or die”. When it comes to communicating, I find that if I don’t grow into many of the new computer related tools, my ability to connect with new audiences will be severely limited – and my business could die!
So, somewhat reluctantly, I bought the book, Buzz Marketing with Blogs for Dummies. While I resented being labeled as a dummy when it came to the World Wide Web and all the social media stuff, I desperately needed the simple explanations and the step-by-step process provided for learning this new way of communicating. [I blessed the index more than once when I didn’t have a clue what a widget was or how an RSS feed worked.]
What will I do with all this new learning? Well, in addition to all the other fun things I do, I’ve taken on the role of blog mistress for a new site that focuses on dating tips for singles over 40. As a recent participant and eventual victor of the mature dating scene, I learned lots-the good, the bad, and the ugly. Many friends, colleagues and even strangers commented about how tough it was to find a new partner, someone who was just right for them.
Since I would love everyone who is newly single to be as happy as I am with my new love, and since I’m a how-to kind of person, I wanted to blog about this topic. My plan is to provide information, stories, opinions and strategies about mature dating that will help readers work toward their goals of finding new relationships. The site: www.maturedatingtips.com launched July 1, 2010.
If you, or someone you know is over 40 and single again, then check out our site, read the posts and send me your stories and comments. The more the merrier on this new adventure!
