Maria Amelia Lopez, the oldest blogger in the world from Spain, passed away couple of days ago at the age of 97. I first heard about abuela Maria in 2007 on the Digital Planet podcast but since my Spanish was crappy I didn’t subscribe to her lovely blog. She was the first senior citizen blogger, but not the last. She genuinely enjoyed blogging about her life and experience during her two plus years of blogging. The blog was a gift from her grandson for her 95th birthday. Interestingly, I started blogging one month before her.
Rest in peace, Abuela Maria.
