In my younger days I was a newspaper junkie. My addiction to newspapers was occasionally satisfied by reading magazines instead, but one way or the other I needed — and still need – to get my information “fix”. O.K., maybe things aren’t that dire. I do occasionally go for walks in the sunlight, but for me, knowing about what’s going on in the world is engaging. It keeps my brain sharp. I suspect there are many other retirees out there just like me who have a voracious appetite for new ideas and current events. These days, though, I barely scan the newspapers, and I have pretty much given up magazines. That’s because I have discovered blogging.
Here are some personal favorites:
Apartment Therapy This is great for anyone who has moved into smaller digs.
Frugal Traveler One of many interesting blogs at the New York Times.
Sultan Knish Thought provoking analysis of current news by columnist Daniel Greenfield.
Slate.com Technically this is more of an online magazine than a blog. Still, lots of interesting stuff.
A Year of Slow Clooking My slow cooker is a real time saver for me and there are some great recipes here.
