R.I.P. Olive Riley

July 14, 2008 / Posted by:

The blogging world has lost an icon! Olive Riley, the world’s oldest blogger, passed away on Saturday at the age of 108. Olive started blogging last February and she’s posted over 70 entries since then. Olive blogged from her nursing home in New South Wales, Australia and wrote about her daily life along with what it was like going through two world wars.

Her final posts can be read here. Her final post was on June 26th and she talked about a bad cough. One of Olive’s last YouTube videos was of her singing “Smile, Smile, Smile.”

So long, Olive Riley! Rest in peace…
