Top News Stories About Generation X
This blog features links to popular Gen-X news stories as well as unseen gems. Posts in this category date back to 2008 when I first began writing about Gen-Xers. Back then, very little was being written about the 13th Generation of Americans originally dubbed Baby Busters. Over the years, more and more stories have been written about Generation X. I don't capture these links on the blog to the degree I once did, but I do share all current Gen-X news in the Facebook community.
Early posts, primarily between 2008 and 2013, linked to blog posts about Generation X. Many of those blogs are no longer active, however, I was able to capture some great excerpts and quotes.
