The Winds of Change Are Blowing...

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.  -Napoleon Hill 
This was to be my thirtieth post for Generation Fabulous…meaning I have written there for thirty weeks…almost eight months.  But, last week, the founders of the website went through a bit of restructuring themselves.  Since I began blogging in 2010, I have witnessed many ventures come and go.
However, though I have only known these ladies for a short time, I believe this bump in the road will lead to greater things.  The Generation Fabulous group will still be around, and an exciting new group Midlife Boulevard will be up and going in November.  Two places where midlife women can find encouragement, refreshment, and inspiration.  I will let you know when my weekly posts are online for Midlife Boulevard….I believe you will enjoy the reading offered there.  One thing which became very evident at the recent Blog Her Conference in Chicago was midlife women online are a growing demographic and important for many brands.  This is a power group and we have as many areas of interest as the huge mommy groups.  In the last week, I have seen midlife bloggers who desire community in addition to building their own personal brands and a brand for midlife women as a consumer group. These are the movers and shakers fighting ageism at every turn, and ready to keep blazing trails for the younger generations.  Then, on the flip side, there are midlife bloggers who simply desire community and to learn and grow from one another.  All midlife women benefit from both visions.  Midlife Boulevard will be that cutting edge place where women 45+ can go to tap into the excitement the founders discovered in Chicago.  There are many exciting ideas on the horizon.  It will be an online experience just for us!

I will let you know what is happening and hopefully, you will want to join us as we go forward…it takes patience, persistence, and perspiration…and a lot of laughter on the side.  I want to thank all of those involved with Generation Fabulous who helped to plant the seeds for bigger dreams to grow.  

Now, I need to hear from YOU.  The weekly post I wrote included a mix of fashion, health, beauty and my journey working with a personal trainer.  So, are there other topics you would like for me to write about?  I welcome all suggestions!

Have a terrific Tuesday!!


  1. I enjoy both your blog and what you have been writing for Generation Fabulous. I appreciate that you have made your own style, and you look beautiful always. You address so many topics that are timely for most of us that are of a similar age (I am 61). It is also refreshing to see someone have marvelous style and not spend a fortune. I really appreciate that! Thank you for the timely information that you share with us

    1. Thank you so much, Maggie! If there is every a particular topic you would like addressed, please let me know!

    2. Hmm. I'm think of the topic that many women 50 and plus are now dealing with is raising grandchildren at the stage of their lives or in my unusual circumstance, I have a 20 year old still at home who is on the Autistic Spectrum, so he will probably be living with my for the rest of my life or for a very long time. But we still are middle aged and want to be fabulous even with all we have to deal with.

  2. Hi Pam, I'm ready for a little rain over here too. Just want you to know I have enjoyed your posts on Gen Fab and hope you keep with the direction you are going. You are inspiring me-with no time-to try to work in more time for exercise. Keep it up and please know, you are an inspiration!
    xx, Heather

  3. Your posts on Gen Fab have been delightful, l and I'm chagrined to see them end. But I look forward to your new venture eagerly. We talk about mid-life bloggers and I have suddenly realized that I am no longer in mid-life (unless I live to 120!). As I transition to the senior spectrum, I would love to read about positive changes-lifestyle, family, fashion and beauty- that others may be experiencing and would like to share. Also, I am always asked by my daughters-in-law for advice on so many things that I would love to hear what other seniors-in-training pass on to their younger counterparts. Thanks.

  4. Pam - I enjoy reading your blog and thanks for inviting us to share our ideas for possible future topics. I would be interested in articles that explore midlife identity and reigniting creativity in every day life. I appreciate your enthusiasm and encouragement.

  5. I am probably one of your newest readers and truly enjoy your writing. What I would love to continue to read is about your weight training. There is so little out there about real women and the daily motivation to stay healthy. I am getting ready to start my own journey and it is because of you that I have decided to make the move. Thanks again for letting us into your life!

  6. Your posts on your weight training are most inspiring to this sixty-six year old gal. We all need to encourage each other to be as healthy as we can as we age. I see so many women carrying around way too much weight. If you take a peek into their grocery carts, you see tons of junk with some diet sodas thrown in to counteract the bad stuff. Eat real food, ladies

  7. Very exciting news Pam
    Can't wait to see the new set up
    Funny about over 50's having a bigger presence
    None of my friends are very computer savy, I always say...how did I end up with these friends LOL

  8. I love how you mix up your blog posts - keep it up.

  9. Hi again Pam, I've browsed on and off through your page this evening and before I click away for tonight I just want to say how much I've enjoyed the encouragement and inspiration you share. I'm sure your new series will be fantastic.
    Best wishes.

  10. Pam I do enjoy your writings both here and on Generation Fabulous. I enjoy reading your fitness posts but also like the style posts. I cannot wait to read your new posts in Midlife Boulevard. I am a relatively new mid life blogger.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
