Your Grandma Might Be Blogging You
The next time you visit your Granny or have dinner with your great Uncle Lou take care ... you may be blogged! Senior citizens are the fastest growing segment to embrace blogging.
Recently one of AMA's Hot Topic Boston speaker's Millie Garfield, My Mom's Blog, was quoted in several articles about senior bloggers. Although this article doesn't specifically mention AMA, the "Boston seminar" was the indeed the AMA workshop Blogs: Marketing Beyond the Website.
In June, Garfield was invited to speak at a Boston seminar for marketers on how to use the Web more effectively. A short video of the event, posted on her blog, captures the professionals laughing at her wisecrack about the benefits of a man who can still drive at night.
Perhaps when Millie finds her way to Oprah, AMA will be mentioned more prominently!
Toby - Good point on seniors being the fastest growing segment of bloggers. My Grandmother just loves reading blogs. Great way for her to keep active and stay involved. But according to LiveJournal blogger stats, seniors currently represent a very small percentage of the total blogosphere. Here's a copy of their recent study (http://www.livejournal.com/stats.bml).
