RIP–World’s Oldest Blogger

From CNN:

(CNN) — An Australian woman often described as the world’s oldest blogger has died at the age of 108 after posting a final message about her ailing health but how she sang “a happy song, as I do every day.”

Olive Riley died Saturday at a nursing home in New South Wales.

Riley posted more than 70 entries on her blog — or “blob” as she jokingly called it — since February 2007.

On the site, The Life of Riley, and in a series of videos post on YouTube, Riley mused on her day-to-day life. She also recounted living through two world wars and raising three children on her own while working as a cook and a bar maid.

Check out the link for a very sweet photo of Olive. And I dig the name Olive.

Her blog is here.  The server might be overloaded–it was slow in downloading–because of the CNN coverage. So maybe give it a day or two.

Godspeed.
