On the Cover of the....

Gonna see my picture on the cover

Gonna buy five copies for my mother

Wanna see my smilin' face on the cover of the Rolling Stone

As the good Dr. Hook lamented years ago, his life would be complete if he could just get his picture on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

It was the pinnacle of popularity when the song was written, but for many of us that fleeting 15 minutes of fame had to wait. Like millions of Boomers who adjusted their sights on other, more worldly endeavors in the last 40 years, the editors here stopped dreaming of being rock stars and burrowed into family, kids and jobs.

Now, as "aging hipsters" we finally got our picture on the cover... of a local newspaper's senior section. There, nestled around advertising for everything from home care services to funeral homes, is an article about our founding editors.

It's not exactly Rolling Stone Magazine, but it is an accurate (if not obscure) portrayal of two 50-somethings who happen to run a blog and a web development business.

About The Baby Boomer Generation

The Baby Boomer Generation first appeared in January of 1996. Originally titled the Baby Boomer Homepage, it was conceived simply as a portal for Boomer chat. It was evident at the start that while chat spawned the site, it wasn't enough alone to support the content we wanted to present.

A trip to Cleveland and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was our first original article and gave rise to much more content pertinent to the generation. But the biggest single obstacle was managing the content.

In 2003, we successfully transferred all the articles over to a blog format and content management was no longer an issue. Now, several writers could be given access and an editor could manage content coming in from all over the world.

In 1999, the name "Aging Hipsters" was first used to describe the site in a magazine article for "The Web." We found out later it was a line from the movie "Austin Powers."

The Baby Boomer Generation has been cited in several national publications and was an LA Times "Daily Pick." The site consistently enjoys a number one ranking on Google, Yahoo and MSN. Design and engineering is by PERFECT i-site.
