8 Blogs by Women Who Will Enrich Your Life

Since I’ve been writing my blog on retirement, women’s issues, and the environment, I’ve often searched the web for other, similar blogs by women.

I wanted to learn from those more experienced than I was, and discover perspectives different from my own.

In the process, I found 8 blogs by women that I return to over and over, that I enjoy reading, and that help  me understand my own situation and those of other women. 

Most, but not all, of these blogs by women are about retirement and its challenges. But one is written by a younger woman and chronicles the challenges she faces as a working woman with a family in the UK.

Here are the blogs I’d like to share with you today.  They are by no means ALL the blogs I read, but they are some of my favorites.  I hope you’ll try them!
