Women Over Seventy Start a Conversation - Blogs are everywhere and for just about anybody. Just about...until now.

Two very enterprising senior women, Drs. Barbara Fleisher and Thelma Reese, have started a blog for women in their senior years. Their blog, www.ElderChicks.com, is a place for women in the newest phase of their long lives to learn from each other, laugh with each other, enjoy each other's journey and make this time productive.

These "elder chicks," feeling they still have lots to give, and take, from the world, want to start a conversation amongst their peers and in doing so, create a supportive community while they serve as role models for women living longer and more actively than their parents and grandparents would have dreamed of.

According to the U.S. census bureau, there are over 36 million senior citizens over age sixty-five living in the United States. In 2005 the Harris Poll reported that more than 13 million of those seniors actively use the Internet. Among these seniors are women who are active and fully engaged.

When asked why she started ElderChicks.com, Dr. Fleisher said, "I'm so busy all the time, traveling, volunteering and learning new skills. I wondered what other women my age were doing and thought a blog would be a perfect way to reach out and share stories and ideas for keeping life interesting." Dr. Thelma Reese added, "I am always inspired by the level of activity and engagement of my friends. I wanted a place to exchange our experiences so that we might develop a virtual community of women living full lives and adapting to rapid changes in the world well past the time our parents would have imagined."
