The 30+ Blog Collective

The 30 Plus Blog Collective is the brainchild of 30-something Hayley Carr, aka London Beauty Queen, who has been blogging since 2010. Five years later she felt the bloggersphere hadn’t really moved on from celebrating young girls talking about lipgloss in their fairylight-lit bedrooms. So she’s set about making a difference. Hayley says: ‘Beauty isn’t the monopoly of the young. There’s huge under-representation in the bloggersphere of women over the age of thirty. We don’t just disappear when we hit the big three-zero, so it’s about time we were celebrated in the way we deserve to be. I launched The 30 Plus Blog Collective to focus is on representing categories that have mostly been unrecognised by now.’The collective offers a huge networking opportunity for bloggers; in the coming weeks there will be a newsletter, meet-ups, regular twitter chats and collaboration opportunities.

    Great idea Hayley. It's nice to realise that there are so many 30 plus bloggers around. I'm definitely going to check out as many of the blogs on the list as possible. I'm really excited to be a part of this collective and can't wait to see where it goes. Leigh

    This is an excellent idea Hayley. As a new 30 plus (40-something!) blogger I've been really enjoying reading other 30 plus ladies blogs. I have discovered som many blogs that I did not know existed! Keep up the good work! Elle x
