Old people can use computers too
A blogging site dedicated to “oldsters around the world” has opened from a Bermuda base, according to founder Bill Storie.
Dubbed Olderhood.com, the site is run by “an energetic team who have personally experienced the various concerns of planning for retirement, and living in retirement”, Mr Storie said.
The site covers health, finance, quality of life, spiritual nourishment, literature, music and humour — along with Mr Storie's own weekly blog reflecting on his introduction to retired life.
“Gone are the golden days of rocking chairs,” said the veteran blogger, who recently stepped down from Butterfield Bank. “Today's oldster is increasingly computer-savvy, financially astute, health conscious and wise.”
Co-founder Robin Trimingham said the site provides “a forum for the dissemination of advice and information relating to the enjoyment of life”.
