Am I too old for this

Am I too old for this

I’m just a old retired truck driver, who would like something interesting to do. Like this, I will make my own website and maintain it myself. I’m 68 is that to old? Far be it from me to be a drain of peoples resources.
Thankyou Cad

anytime never too old to do interesting thing. You’ll did great job!


Too old to get hired? Yes.
Too old to start something interesting and maybe a side gig? No.
Who cares. Do what you want, learn what you want.

If I were you… this is how I would approach this:

I’m pretty sure you’ve led an interesting life with lots of stories. And the trucking community is a nice tight community. Right there, you have your audience. You can capitalize on your life’s experience about being a truck driver and write about this on your website… honest gadget reviews you’ve owned and used, tools, tech, places, etc. Funny stories, reflections, etc. Start a forum/community so other drivers can exchange stories, post questions, answer question, etc.

Then post ads and product links on your site that align and resonate with your audience, earn a bit of commission from product sales, or advertising clicks (like Amazon affiliate, Google Ads, eBay referrals, etc, heck maybe even sponsored post by a company that markets to truck drivers or trucking companies). Build up an audience and you can earn a few dollars, maybe a few hundred to hopefully a few thousands on monthly revenue.

Anyway, just some ideas. Good luck!


Not too old. You’ll get back from software/web development however much you can put into it.
