Nonagenarians and centenarians who blog?
An update on Jen's post earlier this week about the search for Britain's oldest blogger
Both Age Concern and Help the Aged are checking their databases to see if they can point us to the oldest person in Britain who blogs. Let us know if you know of a blogger in their 90s or even 100s
We're doing this following the recent death at 108 years old of Olive Riley. Her blog is now back online, and if we can hook up between London and Australia, we'll be hearing on iPM from the creative force behind Olive's "Life of Riley" blog, Mike Rubbo. He even made a documentary about her and her extraordinary life.
Although the search for Britain's oldest blogger continues, we have come across this blog, which belongs to a 96 year old Spanish woman. If your understanding of Galician isn't quite up to scratch, there's an English version here.
Friday afternoon update:
The technology worked, and I have interviewed Mike Rubbo about Olive and her blog. It'll be featured on this week's iPM, and you can listen to a longer version of Mike's memories of Olive below:
