I became a blogging maniac at 60 when I started my own blog. I did several posts a day. By the time I was 63 I was having trouble doing one post a day so I closed up shop and moved to a group blog where I could do one to three posts a week and spend more time researching them.


Interesting confluence: the original post was my birthday; I did my college thesis on Hemingway; I have cut down on blogging, which I think happens to all seasoned bloggers. Your physical pain is distressing to hear, as are your doubts. But I would say doubts attack all real writers along the way. I'm sending you my post from Tuesday: it's one of those real "reader's reader" post, and that, I a certain, is you.


I am sorry to read about your back problems. I hope you find relief.

You articulated so well what I've realized about myself particularly since I've turned 65 that I'm not as smart as I thought I was either. To paraphrase the title of an old country song, "Oh Lord It's Hard To Be Humbled"!
