Blogging Death Life Photography The World

Olive Riley, World’s Oldest Blogger, Dies

You may recall Olive Riley, who was the author of a beautiful very lively blog, and who at 108 years old was considered the world’s oldest blogger. I wrote about her a couple of times several months ago. (Both of those posts have links to a video of a hilarious birthday party thrown for her.)

She has posted her last line, for on Saturday, just after 6:00 am, in the sure hands of God, she slipped from this earth into the chambers of eternity. She was an amazing woman and will be mourned by her family and her readers who numbered into the thousands. An Australian, she communicated on a regular basis with people from as far away as the United States and Russia.

In her final post of June 26th, she said she could not “shake off that bad cough.” She¬†was born in 1899 and would have turned 109 on October 20.

Olive’s musing live on at and more recently at

My sympathy and best wishes to her family.
