Maria Amelia Lopez – 97 years old blogger!

0906 Maria Amelia LopezMaria Amelia Lopez was the oldest blogger when she died on May 20, at the age of 97. She started posting on a blog that his grandson created for her as a birthday gift two years ago. Her online journal, amis95.blogspot.com (roughly translates to ‘my 95 years’) soon became a worldwide sensation, reaching more than 1.5 million readers from the comfort of her seaside home in Spain!

Maria set an example for all those who think they are too old to use computers, Internet or blogging. She showed that the Web is not just for the young but for anyone who is interested in interacting with the world. ‘Communicating with others wakes up the brain‘, Maria wrote in one of her last entries on the blog.
