Living Through the Middles Ages – The Times starts a new blog for boomers

“It won’t be a nostalgic trip back to 1965. It won’t be one big Springsteen concert.” That is how Michael Winerip introduces The New York Times’ newest blog — Booming — which is aimed at….you guessed it, boomers.

He continues:

“Come to Booming to be informed and entertained and feel at home. We will showcase essays from readers in their 50s writing about their lives, but also essays by 25-year-olds describing their parents’ lives.

If you loved Jose Feliciano’s 1967 version of “Sunny,” we’ll tell you why you might also like Ben Howard’s 2011 version of “Only Love.”

We are going to ask some of you the secrets of being married for 30 years, and others, the secrets of getting divorced after 30.

Booming will have plenty of serious features geared to this demographic — about Medicare, Social Security, unemployment trends. We’ll have experts to answer questions on aging, retirement, investing and sex.

You’ll hear about books, movies, magazines and blogs that we think you’ll want to investigate. Or to stay away from.

But most important is you. Our generation is getting through the middle ages in 78 million ways. We want to hear your stories. Welcome.”

I hope to write for it down the road if my handlers in the Culture section will free me up.
