Five years on
Which brings us to 2019. After four years of writing Midlifechic I can honestly say that I had no idea of the joy that it would bring me. Here we have an active community of over 45,000 women who read each post. There’s lots of interaction that goes on and readers have built friendships both with me and with each other. Our core conversations are always about style but often we move on to other topics too, discussing life with teens, travel, and both the physical and emotional factors that menopause brings.
Midlifechic has taken me to all sorts of exciting places including Kensington Palace, Chelsea Flower Show, London, Paris and Transylvania. It has opened up opportunities for me to work with brands behind the scenes, helping them to develop their ranges with midlifers in mind.
The best part of it though is waking up to an email from a new readers telling me that she has found hope, laughter and reassurance in this midlife world that we have created. After all, a blog is only as good as the community that grows around it.
So I thank you for reading my blog. I believe there has never been a better time to be a midlife woman. We are forging a whole new way of approaching midlife and it’s up to us to change society’s view of who we are and what we stand for. We need to show them that we’re not dead yet. Exciting times lie ahead for us, I hope you’ll stay and join us as we blaze the trail!
