The Oldest Blogger in the World is now 108

October 19th, 2007 · 2 Comments


Who is the oldest man in the world? I guess you may not know the answear. As a blogger, you should know (at least after reading this post) who is the oldest blogger in the world. She is Olive Riley from Australia, who has just turned 108 since 2 days ago. 

On 16 February 2007, she posted her 1st post, entitled “Swims and Shandies”, which started like this “Good Morning everyone. My name is Olive Riley. I live in Australia near Sydney. I was born in Broken Hill on Oct. 20th 1899. Broken Hill is a mining town, far away in the centre of Australia...” 

Guess what this first post has recieved 178 comments till yesterday and there was 192,000 visits while she was posting her 3rd post. 

She is not merely a legendary in blogosphere but also an inspiring figure to many. She is the best example of the “receptiveness to changes”, espcially changes in IT & internet, mindset of western country. I remember there was a survey disclosed that 1/3 of the retired people in the UK now have turned their hobby from gardening to internet surfing.

So, are you ready to open your mind and accept changes around you? Changes may make one feels uncomfortable but it brings improvement. As bible aptly said in Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world (world means wickedness), but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect.

I believe it is very difficult for Malaysia to produce the oldest blogger but it is not that difficult to produce the youngest blogger in the world.

“Malaysia boleh” (Malaysia can do).

After knowing Olive, you may still don’t know how to blog but you will have no excuse to say you don’t know what is a blog. haha!
