Fort Mill Blogger Silver is the New Blonde® Nominated for Top Social Media Award

Jan Correll’s Noteworthy Social Content has Earned her a Shorty Award Nomination


FORT MILL, FEBRUARY 8, 2019 --  Fort Mill blogger and age-positive influencer Jan Correll of Silver is the New Blonde® has been nominated for a Shorty Award, one of the nation’s standout awards for recognizing outstanding content creators on social media. In their eleventh year, The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media by acknowledging some of the most paramount companies, brands, and influencers who use their online platforms as a means to engage their followers, and make a difference. Sixty-one year old Correll is a rarity amongst the list of other nominees in the lifestyle category, being the only age-positive influencer, as well as one of the only non-millennial candidates.


Correll and her husband have lived in the greater Charlotte area for almost forty years. Once she discovered how much an age-positive voice was absent from the youth-driven world of social media and blogging, she became determined to spread her message of age positivity and acceptance thus creating Silver is the New Blonde®. Correll now has over 48,300 followers on Instagram.


Nominated alongside major social media stars including Reese Witherspoon, Joe Biden and Marie Kondo, it is Correll’s hope that winning the noteworthy award would draw more attention to the underrepresented message of age positivity. When asked what it would mean to her to win, Correll said: “Winning The Shorty Award would allow me to reach more people to spread the age-positive message and would validate my fifty-plus peers as part of the social media community. It’s time aging should be celebrated as the accomplishment it is. After all, we can’t stop it!”
