Attention readers! I’m under doctor’s orders to blog about AARP’s latest Life Reimagined rollout and the goal is to find out what you think about it.
You were among the first invited to test drive the beta version of Life Reimagined nearly two years ago, but to be honest, we haven’t written that much about it since its official launch in 2013.
Today, Dr. Bill Thomas called me up and asked me a relatively straightforward question: do you think Life Reimagined is having an impact on the lives of ChangingAging’s audience?
I don’t know, I said. What do you think?
After a long conversation about all the projects we’ve been working on in recent years, from the Second Wind Tour to Life Reimagined to the Green House Project, and what impact it all has on our audience, we concluded — who knows? How about we ask them!
So, ChangingAging readers – what do you think about Life Reimagined in particular? Has it had an impact on your life? We’d like to hear from audience members who have engaged with Life Reimagined, either online or through AARP events like the Second Wind Tour, which was largely sponsored by Life Reimagined.
This isn’t a survey or poll– it’s a conversation. You can answer with a yes or no. You can send us a guest blog post.
We assume you follow Bill and visit ChangingAging because you believe in our mission, in the broadest sense, that aging is rich in developmental potential and growth. AARP has spent several years and millions of dollars to build a platform based on the same assumption, in order to empower people to experience that potential for growth.
How do you think they’re doing? Bill wants to know what you think, and perhaps you all want to know what each other thinks as well.
In case you hadn’t noticed (I didn’t), Life Reimagined rolled out a new website a couple weeks ago with a whole new suite of programs and services. I told Bill that I would personally test drive this new platform over the next couple of months on the condition that I can quit anytime I don’t think it’s relevant. It’s true that I’m technically younger (37) than their target demographic, but I used Life Reimagined in 2013 when I moved my family cross-country and I found it to be age neutral and relatively useful. And as a self-employed entrepreneur, I’m constantly taking on new ventures and projects so this kind of platform should be relevant to my life.
Let us know what you think.
