    I've had this desire to read the life stories of other gay men my age. I thought blogging meant men would freely do this online. I thought there would be a lot of men doing this but my searches surprisingly come up with nothing. So I hope someone here can help me. Thank you very much.

    I suspect that those of us in the over-50 category don't have the same urge to share everything personal that younger guys have. I suspect we're more secure, settled in, satisfied, and less on the hunt. And many of us never really got the blog/twitter/facebook virus anyway.

    I do enjoy coming here and reading what some people have to say - I learn a lot - but it's mostly younger guys starting the more personal threads.

    Seriously? Unless they are hairless gymnasts I have little or no time for any sort of blog and I can't even imagine the insane rantings of an elderly gay man.
    Why would anyone want to ask such a question? More to the point, google your need for pablum from the geriatrics.

    Art Deco's life story is here for youicon_lol.gif

    What sort of stories are you looking for?

    Blogging is so 2008 or rather all the ones I fallow haven't been updated sense then.

    Older people as a whole are confused/terrified by technology from the last twenty years. I can't tell you how many 50+ year old people I know have their grandchildren show them how to use their smartphones or ipads.
    Except facebook. Older people seem to like facebook.

    Three reasons:

    1) few between 50 and 65 have time for that
    2) people over 50 have been sensitized to thinking that few care about what anyone over 50 other than Bon Jovi and Bill Gates has to say
    3) RJ is our/their blog

    Yep, no time. We actually have lives too. Many of us lived the dual lives too so our 'gay' stories would be short stories.

    You'll probably have more luck looking for books. I've read a few that are compilations of biographical chapters of different guys. One was about gay guys who grew up on farms.

    Well stated. I resemble that remark.
