All the Blogs for Midlife Women You Should be Reading Now

When I started Midlife Rambler I honestly believed there were no other lifestyle blogs that spoke to the needs of midlife women. I was wrong - so wrong! - but blogs for women our age do tend to fall under the radar. Here's a megalist of the blogs you'll want to start reading today.

One of my most popular posts on Midlife Rambler is a quick list of five other Midlife Blogs that I really liked. As I wrote in my original post, I started Midlife Rambler because I honestly believed that there were no other lifestyle blogs that spoke to the needs of midlife women. I was wrong – so wrong! – but blogs for women our age do tend to fall under the radar.

I’ve continued to discover amazing women bloggers during my blogging journey and it’s time to recognize us all! I’ll keep this list updated and evergreen so if I didn’t list you, let me know in the comments. We all deserve a little love!

UPDATE: I’m not surprised to discover that this is just a small subset of midlife bloggers! If you’d like to be added to this list, please comment on this post with your blog’s URL. I’ll update the list once a week and delete your comment when you’ve been added to the main list. Thanks so much!

    That is a fantastic list! Some I already follow, and a few more I will now add! Thank you! I would love to be considered for this list as well, I would fall under Lifestyle (I do both fashion and recipes. But I focus a little more on Fashion) And always a dose of encouragement at the end 🙂 Mine is called “Your Favorite Chapter” because I believe no matter where you are at in life or what has gone on before, this chapter can still be your favorite chapter.

  13. September 29, 2017 / 10:59 am

    Awesome list! I’m 49 years old and do aerial trapeze for fun. My blog Fem40Fitness is all about being interested in extreme fitness after 40. I talk about good gear to buy, try to debunk myths about aging and fitness, and hope to be a body positive place for mid life women who want to push themselves. I’d love it if you could include my blog!

  14. October 22, 2017 / 12:28 am

    Thanks so much for including my blog (Suzy Rosenstein – Midlife Transition Coach) on this list. I was blown away at how much amazing work is being done to help us midlife gals with this phase of our lives. I have some reading to do! We’re all in this together everyone – Thank God!

  15. November 20, 2017 / 10:31 am

    I consider my blog an inspirational blog–maybe under “living your best life”–it is: Thank you so much! I love that there are others to share this journey with!

    March 29, 2018 / 5:20 pm

    Great list. But why leave out the guys? My new blog at tries to comment on things of interest to both women and men. I suppose it would fit under Midlife musings, but tries to touch on most of the other categories. One recent post you may enjoy is about the joy of travelling with your adult children. Please check it out. Thanks!

    Thoroughly depressed by the constant onslaught of “pretty young things” on blogging platforms, I googled “midlife blogs” and found you! Wow! So glad to know I am not a voice in the wilderness – though sorry to se you don’t appear to have an “environmental/ethical” category to pop me in 🙁
    May I be cheeky and ask to be the pioneer of this?? I write from thee heart about things that matter to me (and the planet) – responsible travel, ethical consumerism and anything that affects the environment – from the decks of a beautiful Dutch sailing barge. You’ll find me here when you have a cup of your favourite beverage on hand and a comfortable seat to relax in 😉

    This is an amazing list,and I’ve started checking out a few! Thanks for all your efforts in this niche, Katy – nice to know that there are so many of us:) Please would you consider adding my blog to “Living your best life” – it is about fitness of body, soul and spirit for mature (midlife) women.

  20. September 17, 2018 / 12:29 am

    Wow!! How amazing I follow some but who knew so many did midlife blogging. So excited to read more! If you have ever room I would love to be added also

    Hello, I follow several of these blogs already, I thank you so much for this fabulous list of Midlife blogs and look forward to reading them all, I bookmarked for later on. I am a Midlife blogger but have only started approximately 4 months ago. I am not sure if that would make your list or not, I am still learning so much!! My blog is It’s a health and wellness blog for women over 40.

    Thank you,

    I’ve just discovered this blog today and thank you for this amazing list. I can’t wait to start working through it. I am 51, vegan, new to blogging and have just a few posts, but am busy learning. I believe that every woman, whatever her age, deserves to be visible and to be heard. Every phase of life comes with challenges as well as new opportunities and I attempt to address this in my blog. If appropriate, I would love to be included in your list
    Thank you, Lady Chic Pea

    Hello! I found my tribe! My 50’s lifestyle blog is called Fab in your Fifties, basically looking at our 50’s in a humorous way. Thank you for consider my blog!

  27. May 12, 2019 / 10:02 am

    This is the list I have been looking for!
    I was getting somewhat disillusioned with all of the fashion tips, and felt all the parenting sites were aimed at people with babies and toddlers rather than late teens and older.
    I will grab a coffee and get to work on a mass read!
    And, if allowable a shameless plug of my own small blog. I am attempting to combat my mid-life crisis with a bucket list to keep me busy.
    It probably falls under lifestyle/life improvement as that is what I am trying to do over at Pollyspadblog.Com ( )

    This is such a great blog. I have started a journey of my own, just separated and with an eminent divorce looming, next month I will be 50 and frankly, the whole process is overwhelming and I am scared about all the uncertainties. I have gone ahead and put myself out there with a YouTube Chanel to share my journey. I figured that it will not only be self-empowering but that sharing the whole process may be inspiring for others who may be going through the same situation. Please visit my YouTube channel here, thank you for supporting me in my journey! <3

  29. May 29, 2019 / 8:29 pm

    I don’t think I ever thanked you for adding me to this list! I appreciate it! (And I’m bookmarking it so I can come back and read more of these blog posts later.)

  30. June 19, 2019 / 11:57 am

    Thanks for sharing this amazing list , thanks for sharing! I do midlife travel & style, would love to be added to your list. I will share your blog on social in return..thank you!


  31. August 25, 2019 / 7:39 pm

    This is exactly how I felt when I started my blog, Middle Aged Mama, about 5 years ago! I’d be thrilled if you added my blog to your list, probably under the Lifestyle category because I do a bit of everything. I’m in Brisbane Australia, and my tag line is “fashioning a new life after the kids are grown”.

  32. October 7, 2019 / 9:55 pm

    Who knew there were so many of us! I’d love to be added to the list! I’m an over 40 beauty and style blogger at

  33. October 14, 2019 / 12:11 pm

    I have a newborn blog that I just launched, Take a look at Menopausal Brunette, it’s new but I’m just getting started and in it for the long haul!
    My vision is a lifestyle type blog for women 45 and up that shares “relevant and relatable content”.
    This is a great list. Like you when you began, I have been hunting for blogs like mine and at first couldn’t really find anything. I’d love to be included if you’re still updating. Thanks again for the resource. I’ve been looking on Pinterest and everywhere to find similar groups.

  34. December 3, 2019 / 3:50 pm

    This is a great list, thank you for compiling it. I’ve got a relatively new lifestyle blog called A Modern Midlife ( And I would love to be added to this list!

  35. December 4, 2019 / 4:43 pm

    Hi Katy,

    I appreciate your consideration.
