She has been called "the dean of older bloggers". The Guardian newspaper said: "Ronni Bennett does a great job of demystifying the later years of life". Naturally. She is a pro who has spent years in the media working with the very best on radio and television. Like any media magpie she can peck away on anything from music to movies to Medicare. And she does it with style. She can be tart and meditative, critical and reminiscent, mixing commentary and autobiography in a style that’s distinctly hers. Some writers have a style so personal it’s almost like hearing them speak. Ronni is one of them. She has a distinct voice.
She also podcasts on her blog, Time Goes By. I love the title. It reminds me of Casablanca and Humphrey Bogart and Ingid Bergman. It’s a classic and so is Ronni’s blog. She has lots of fans who will be posting tributes to her today. Some have even been sending out email reminding the others it is a special day. Happy birthday, Ronni! And many happy returns of the day. Write on, we love to hear from you.
