age is everything…

Fiftyism is a site for those approaching fifty, are fifty or are fifty with some add ons. It is a site designed to motivate, educate and at times amuse those of us enjoying the prime of our middle age. Although targeted toward a male audience, female readers will see through many of the posts immediately courtesy of innate genetic understanding.

Although the site is relatively new, posts are being added with some regularity. The hamburger icon on your right will display what content is currently on offer or you can simply continue scrolling down the page.

Fiftyism will not annoy you with pop-ups, adds or external links encouraging you to buy products you most probably don’t need. I ask you to have a look around, even if you only have the patience or time for a single read. If you find nothing of interest please consider returning at some time in the future as eventually there is sure to be something that catches your eye.

Fiftyism is a fledgling blog and the associated Facebook page is equally in its infancy.

Away from the shit that builds up.. To give yourself some space so you can find the space to keep on fitting everything in. a two day...

The 50 things I’ve learnt at 50


I know I’ve mentioned this before, but you don’t get to fifty for free. At some time or other, and usually a hell of a lot more than once, you’re going to have to pay. Call it what you want, experience, wisdom, pragmatism, it doesn’t really matter because whatever you call...
