Its a 1 year blogaversary and my birthday - time to reassess

I started blogging a year ago on my 62nd birthday - so this is also a happy 63rd birthday to me day.
All of which it means it is time to celebrate the past year and make plans for the next year.  I started this blog to have a place to think out loud about the path I would take in the future and to chat with others who are also creating their own road map for retirement.  As I look at the most frequent post topics I can see that my thoughts have most often been about decluttering, goals, happiness, health, money and simplifying.  The second tier of topics were 2012 planning, aging well, decisions, family, food, house and yard, planning, retirement, shopping, travel, updates, and values.  That does sound like what bounces around in my head on a regular basis!

What would you like to hear more about?  Please let me know through your comments!


  1. I just found your blog recently and I haven't had the chance to read too many of your posts, so I can't answer your question. :(
    But I did want to wish you a happy birthday! May the next year be filled with good health and happiness!

  2. Happy birthday!! :) I hope you have a wonderful day! I would love to see a "things I wish I had known" type of post or something... :)

  3. A big day for you! I am happy that you started blogging and I hope that you have had fun while meeting the goals you set for yourself. I like the posts about finances and simplifying...well, I like all of your posts but if I were to choose what I would like to see more of it would be those. : )

  4. Happy Birthday to you!!! Congrats on a fun year sharing with the rest of us. finaces, simplifying and getting your ducks in a row for retirement are always a hit
