oldest blogger known died at 97

Maria Amelia Lopez known to be the oldest blogger in the world passed away last week at 97. “Maria, we will miss you. and we keep going with your memories and inspiration you left to the bloggin world”.

here is the news quote from yahoo

Lopez started blogging in 2006 after her grandson — “who is very stingy,” she wrote — created the site as a present for her 95th birthday.

The blog went on to attract a huge following, with more than 1.7 million hits, as Lopez shared her thoughts on everything from life in Spain under the dictatorship of Gen. Francisco Franco to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, which she criticized.

Lopez said discovering the Internet and communicating with people all over the world changed her life, and she urged elderly people everywhere to get wired.

“It took 20 years off my life,” Lopez wrote. “My bloggers are the joy of my life. I did not know there was so much goodness in the world.”
