Who are Post-40 Bloggers?

Post-40 Bloggers is a website showcasing and featuring (free of charge) the talents of bloggers and writers aged 40 and upward.

This is the place where we create, curate, collate and commission (paid in bragging rights) the very best this blogging community has to offer. We also source material we think will be of interest or use to our demographic, be it merely interesting or deliciously perverse.

Why Post-40 Bloggers?

Because there is a liberation and sense of understanding isn’t there in talking with like minded people. A welcome shorthand where no explanation is needed. People who all stand on the same-ish ground, having their passion for blogging or writing as the common thread.

Who are our members?

We are an inclusive community of 40-plusers running the gamut of single, married, divorced, childless, parents, grandparents, empty nesters, white collar, blue collar, adult learners, retirees – and all shades in between.

What are the membership requirements?

At Post40Bloggers HQ, we don’t care how many followers you have or don’t have; what your ‘influence’ or Klout score is; how many brands you work with or if your Facebook page is, well, off the page. The only registration requirement is to be aged 40 or over, with a desire to have your blog or work perused for quality posts for potential inclusion on our growing community website. Publication is not guaranteed.

What if you’re not 40 but have something relevant to say?

First off, no-one has to be 40 (or over) to socialise with or follow us. (Yay!) However, if you are not yet 40, but would like to submit a post on the subject of approaching 40 (or another highly relevant subject area), please remember to tick the ‘I am under 40’ check box when registering.)

How do you sign up?

Here is where you sign up if you are 40+ and would like your blog included in those we read as a potential source for quality posts, featured posts and other future membership benefits. Register in your own right if you do not have a blog, but can produce quality content.

We also ask you please follow us on our social platforms (especially if you register to become a member) not just because we’re super-awesome, but because we also need a way to contact our contributors. We also promote featured work across our social media platforms in whole or in part. As follows:

Editorial guidance note

Please note: As writers ourselves, we know it can be frustrating not to hear back after submitting a post. However, we do not have a set timeframe in which to publicise or feature material on the site. Our editorial calendar is based on many many factors – including timeliness of the piece, season, quality, what else is being featured, etc. However, we do let authors know via social media if one of the posts from their blog, or a submitted piece, is being publicised or goes lives on the site.

Yay, Post-40 Bloggers! Wonder if we need a special handshake? Hmm…
