I'd like to pitch a Menopause Party Session!

Menopause only affects women in their fifties. Right? Not so, ladies! If you are in your thirties, then you should be thinking about perimenopause, and what it means for your semi-symptomatic, less-fertile self…


I started EllenDolgen.com  in conjunction with the launch of my book Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. EllenDolgen.Com and the book turns this taboo topic (menopause) into an all-inclusive community and page-turner. I soon found out that I wasn't the only one in the middle of the night online seeking Hot Flash Support! (waking up in the middle of the night is par for the course!) There are so many blogging perimenopausal/menopausal women online - taking to blogging websites like BlogHer, HuffPost Women, Fabulously40, Boomer-Blog.com, MenopauseTheBlog ... and Facebook Groups like GenFab and BloggingOver45 ... 


These women are hot -- literally -- hip, cool, trendy and fun. They are turning menopause blogging into a topic just as popular as blogging about shoes.


The Menopause Blogging has also turned into real-life interactions - with Menopause Parties. Women are coming together at homes and creating fun in-person discussions - with intelligent conversations, raffles, cocktails, bathrobes! and more...  Details here: http://www.shmirshky.com/menopause-parties/
