Craigslist for Boomers: Over 50 Clubs and More

Sometimes it's easy for seniors and other Boomers to get the sense that they're the only ones dealing with issues like paying for healthcare, saving money for retirement, Medicare coverage, Medicare insurance supplement, and the countless other issues that don't really affect our younger family members, coworkers, and friends.

Craigslist Over 50 Clubs

Craigslist offers a range of tools and options for Boomers. One of the most effective tools is their Over 50 forums. These forums give you the chance to talk to other Boomers about a variety of subjects. Actually, you can carry on conversations online on just about any topic you like. Most of the cities covered on Craigslist have Over 50 clubs of their own Austin Over 50 Club so you can connect with Boomers in your area. This makes the forums a great way to discuss local issues, find great Boomer-oriented entertainment in town, and much more.

It's easy to get started on one of these forums. Just create your handle, and start reading or posting. You can even search Boomer forums by keyword in order to get in on conversations regarding topics you're interested in. The long list of categories and forums is far too extensive to list in its entirety here, but you can find topics on everything from photography to frugal living to veganism to politics, and just about everything else in between.

Job Searches and Volunteering on Craigslist

Craigslist has also become a major source for job and volunteer opportunities for Boomers. Unemployed seniors have turned to Craigslist to track down a range of job openings in their specific cities, and seniors interested in spending their time doing volunteer work can find a number of local organizations in need of help . In fact, Craigslist has become such a popular job posting spot in the last few years that it's managed to alter the online job search landscape: "One of the factors in the decline of job posting sites has been the boom of Craigslist." (from BoomersNextStep)As with everything on Craigslist, it's important to maintain a level of safety when dealing with job postings. While the majority of postings are for legitimate openings, there are Craigslist job scams that have resulted in lost money and much worse for people in cities all over the U.S. While some of these scams are directed at Boomers, many are also targeted at young workers in need of a job, and many have no age discrimination whatsoever. The folks at Resume Bucket listed some of the most popular Craigslist job scams to look out for including the "Excess Funds Scam, " the "Writing Samples Scam, " "Affiliate Link Swaps, " and "Pay to Play." As we said, Craigslist can be a great source for finding jobs, but it's always good to keep an eye out for the scams.

For Boomers looking to connect with other Boomers, interested in sharing their thoughts and concerns, wanting to chat with others about a particular hobby or beloved pastime, or in search of local employment or volunteer opportunities, Craigslist can serve as a catchall online source. With forums on a seemingly endless array off topics and localized searches, like Medicare Supplements, it makes it easy for Boomers to find what they're looking for.

Medicare supplement professional dedicated to helping people on Medicare access quality healthcare at a reasonable cost. Also, part of Medicare Supplement Services which offers rate and Medicare Supplement Comparisons of Medicare supplement insurance. My belief is that all seniors and those with disabilities should have complete access to our healthcare system without restriction and without insurance companies standing between them and their doctors.

The 'Next Silicon Valley' Myth

Last week I offered some reasons to be skeptical of the cities claiming to be the "Next Silicon Valleys." The point wasn't that Silicon Valley was inherently superior to these cities: New Orleans is cheaper, Austin has better barbecue, Chicago has better theater, and so on. Artists want to be around other artists, bankers want to be around banks, and software developers cluster around software ...
