World oldest blogger passes away

By on

Yesterday at 6am, the world’s oldest blogger passed away. Olive Riley, from the New South Wales’ central coast region, died at a nursing home at the age of 108. She will be mourned by her family and thousands who have read her blog at http://www.allaboutolive.com.au (which is apparently down) and http://worldsoldestblogger.blogspot.com/.

She had more than 70 posts on her blog, or what she called it, “blob”; sharing her experiences and life to a wide audience. However, illness made her stop blogging on June 26, saying, “I still feel weak, and can’t shake off that bad cough.”

She would have been 109 on October 20. Her funeral will be held later this week.
