Woo Hoo!

I was really excited last week to discover Twenty Four At Heart was listed as one of the 10 Best Blogs For Baby Boomers.  There are tens of millions of blogs written.  (The last count I heard was 76 MILLION and it's probably much higher by now!)

I was squealing with excitement at the honor of being on this list! 

I was so excited, that is, until I thought, "Wha … ????  DO PEOPLE OUT THERE THINK I'M A BABY BOOMER?  Don't they know I'm only twenty four?"

And then a friend reminded me I'm not really twenty four, which totally messed with my psyche.  And then another friend told me anyone 40 and up is considered a Baby Boomer.

Is that true?

Have I become … a Baby Boomer?

Something about it sounds sorta … old.

At twenty four, am I … oh dear God, OLD?

Are you old too?

Because I don't think of any of you as being old.

Also, as much as I love and welcome all my "baby boomer" readers, I have readers of all ages.  I get comments from college students. and single men, and young moms, and well endowed men, and mid-lifers, and grandmas and grandpas.  I love all of you and all of you seem quite young at heart when you write to me or leave comments.  In fact, one of my youngest-at-heart readers signs her comments as "Old Woman" and yet, I think her heart is one of the youngest I've ever encountered.

And isn't that really the only place age matters?  

In our hearts. 

I am putting the thought of being old entirely out of my head and going right back to my mental age of twenty four.  At the same time, I would like to say I was thrilled to death to have Twenty Four At Heart recognized on such an awesome list.

I want each of you to know I'm sending you a huge virtual hug today.  I'm so happy you come to visit and spend time with me.  I'm so honored you've helped make Twenty Four At Heart grow into such a great little community of its own.  

Really, I'm tremendously touched.

    Very Cool! Congrats. It’s been fun watching your blog grow as you remain 24. Personally, I would have picked 28. I was still dumb at 24. BTW I’m enjoying your Photo Fridays. I need to get off my hiney and post on your flickr. I’ve been shooting alot of pics. Big smile here.

    Wow….so young and yet so talented. Good luck sneaking into the baby boomer category! Don’t get busted.
    I think I fall into the Gen X crowd don’t I? I’m not sure. I’ll be 31 this month….whatever that means.

    Young at heart. That’s us. I’m 27 (was stuck at 23 for a lot of years), and think I’ll stay this age for a while. Surfing helps keep you young, in the water surfing, that is.
    BTW my birth certificate tells me I’m going to be 43 this year.

    I think I’m probably 17 at heart.
    Congratulations ms. 24! I am so happy for you and your little successful community 🙂
    and you post pictures of…PUPPIES. Ahem, be cool.

    I was 43 at heart when I finally began to wise up in life. BEGAN… because I’m still on a journey to wise up.
    Congratulations, Suzanne!

    Some days I feel 24 and then some only 4. Actually, I feel much younger at 48 than I did at 34.
    Congrats on a well deserved honor!

    Look at you! You’re gettin’ all famous, girl – soon we’ll be able to say we knew you when!

  8. Kelly

    Yay you! You go girl! I’m cheering you on every step of the way and 24 DEFINITELY should be in the top 10 of ANYONES favorite blogs! It’s certainly on mine.

  9. DebrAbby

    *woo hoo* is right. This is wonderful & fabulous news! I always check in everyday! Yep, I am one of those quintessential baby boomers — right at the cusp, but definitely one of them.

  10. Pam

    Top Ten??? WOW! Congratulations! You’ve done well in a mere 24 years. 🙂

    Congrats Suzanne. I tell everyone about your blog – comedy, drama, slice of Money Town life, photos – you cover it all so well!

  12. Karen

    Congrats to you. Love your blog. I don’t think being over 40 makes you a baby boomer. I enjoy being 42. Thanks for sharing with us all.

  13. Tessa

    Hmm. I thought you had to be in your 60s like me to be considered a boomer. Is nothing safe from you whippersnappers? Congratulations, though – well deserved.

    Hey, I’m 40 and I’m considered Gen-x. The baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 or ; and my birthday came six years later…and I definitely don’t have much in common with baby boomers when it comes to music tastes or life experiences.

  15. Tami

    You totally deserve it! Just because its a great blog for boomers to read does not make you a boomer. Its a great blog for all of us to read. Love it! Congratulations!

  16. Jenn in Tenn

    Congratulations!! You do totally deserve it! I’m 37, some days I feel 100, but most days I feel 25 (in my mind, anyway!) Keep up the good work! We all love you!

  17. Pam

    I take back my Top 10 comment! I just looked and you’re #5! Even more impressive. 🙂

    Twenty Four, put a link to that Old Woman in your post!
    (I’ve been calling her that Old Woman since she was in her early thirties.)

    You are as young as you feel. Having said that, sometimes I feel like I’m 101! Haven’t been following but a few weeks, but I love your blog and Congrats!
