MiddlesexMD Online Community Roundup

Now that our new site has been up for a while, we've met and made friends with others in online communities serving midlife women and sharing information about sexual health. We'd love for you to meet some of our new friends:

The amazing women at Vibrant Nation invited me to participate in their -- really very vibrant -- community. It's a great place to explore and share life with others our age. Four of our posts made the top 10 in August and September!

Liz from Flashfree (Not Your Mamas Menopause) asked for a guest post on her blog, where she writes about the physical, emotional, and societal issues that surround midlife and menopause. I was happy to oblige.

I had a great time discussing sex at menopause on the Voice of the Nation show "Sex with Jaiya", who was very interested in hearing about how we can adjust our ideas about sexuality to meet the changes we experience as we age.

Melinda Blau's MotherU was a marvelous blog she keeps with her daughter, Jennifer Blau Martin. Melinda is a bestselling author, and a brilliant blogger who does a great job of including as many voices as she can on her comforting and informative blog. She asked to run our recent contemplation of new grandmotherhood.

And we love Owning Pink, an online community that endorses and celebrates living full and authentic lives. I've joined the Pink Posse to talk about Owning Sexuality. I swear it's not just so that I can say that I've joined the Pink Posse, though that's a pretty good reason to join up.

In the off-line community, we've just come back from participating at The North American Menopause Society Annual Meeting in Chicago and the Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health Women's HealthCare Conference in California. We made lots of new friends--and were exhilarated by the response! Whew! Now to catch our collective breath...

Thanks for this list (and for being everywhere at once!) — there are a couple I didn’t know about, and I’ll look them up. Good job spreading the word!
