Hi! Welcome to the Retirement Journeys (RJ) website. Before I describe what you’ll find and how to find it, here are a couple of links that will provide some background.

I don’t have a set schedule for when I release content. I do update the website and Facebook page with new content as I create it.

Top Menu – Our Journey

The top menu contains the stages of our personal retirement journey – The Foundation (financial, health & lifestyle), Pre-retirement, Decision Day, Arriving, Surviving and Retirement. For each stage I go into detail about our experience – what we did, how we did it and our lessons learned.

Sharing our experience is why we created Retirement Journeys.  I hope that through our experience  you will find inspiration and information for your own journey.

The Second Menu

Here you’ll find:

Left Sidebar

At the top of the left sidebar are links (icons) to the RJ YouTube channel and Facebook page.

There’s a link to subscribe to the RJ podcast on iTunes.

There’s a link to a popular past post in case you missed it.

That’s followed by a list of recent comments. To read one, just click on it.

Center Column

Blog

This is where the most recent blog contents are displayed in magazine style. Each blog post is identified by category, author and date. The most recent post serves as a magazine cover. Below the cover are the 4 most recent posts. Note that each post is classified into one of 5 categories: financial, general interest, lifestyle, health and podcast.

Podcast

One of my favorite things to do is to producing podcasts. I enjoy providing my guests with a literal voice to share their retirement-related expertise. My guests include authors, bloggers, professors and journalists. You can listen to a podcast from your computer or by downloading it to play later. You can subscribe to the RJ podcast on iTunes so you won’t miss any episodes. I am working on making what’s called one-click available for Android.

Right Sidebar

At the top of the right sidebar, under More, is where you can signup to receive our newsletters.

The next thing in the right sidebar is titled Find Blogs By Category. When you click on the drop down menu you’ll see all 5 blog categories. When you click on a category you will get all of the posts for that category!

At the bottom of the right sidebar is a featured photo gallery.

Footer

This footer contains a fun feature that is unique to Retirement Journeys and is called Rocky’s Corner. Rocky offers up words of wisdom and his own unique perspective on what life is like living with two retired people. Clicking on our photo to the right will take you to About Us.
