'World's oldest blogger' dies at 108
(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 posted more than 70 entries on her blog -- or "blob" as she jokingly called it -- since February 2007
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.
"She had a wonderful memory, and an amazing zest for life," said her friend Eric Shackle, who met Riley at a nursing home while visiting his wife, who has since passed. "Just two weeks ago, she recalled the words of a song that was popular before World War II, and sang the chorus with me." <>
