Review: Global Ageing Network Blog

The Global Ageing Network, the IAHSA, has a blog here. There is a simple white background through and the articles feature in the central pane. Articles are titled, category tagged, dated and comment enabled with author details included also. The articles feature photographs and video inserts which help to break up the text and add interest. The chronological index is represented in the form of a scroll down box on the left hand side of the central pane.  Articles are authored by Victoria Nuessle and Majd Alwan. The first post dates back to July 2007. The posts include brief overviews of useful resources including blogs, movies and research summaries. There were a number of articles I thought interesting including one on organisations which build retirement communities in other countries, a link to a TED video on blue zones with long-lived peoples, a post on generational profiles and creating a UN Convention for older people. The blog now several years old is updated frequently and offers a valuable resource for those with an interest in gerontology.
