Born in 1899, Only Death Stops World's Oldest Blogger
For those who believe that cyberspace is only for the young, Olive Riley's story makes a firm counterpoint.
THE Australian woman renowned as the world's oldest internet blogger has made her final post, aged 108.
Olive Riley, of Woy Woy on NSW's central coast, died in a nursing home just after 6am (AEST) yesterday.
She will be mourned by family and an international readership in the thousands.
"It was mind blowing to her,'' her great grandson Darren Stone, of Brisbane, said.
"She had people communicating with her from as far away as Russia and America on a continual basis, not just once in a while.''
