María Amelia, the Oldest Blogger About to Become a Legend

We interrupt our regular posting for a serious announcement. This is one isn't fiction nor a tease, just in case the tone of this blog sets wrong.

María Amelia, once the oldest blogger in the world, passed away on May 20th this year. She was a dear.

She created her blog when she was 95 years old and kept it on for over two years delighting so many people all around the world with her stories, her recipes, or just her chit chat. Her blog is at:

Now, I got a message telling me this (the translation is mine):

Hello, Comics All Too Real.

We're a group of people who used to follow María Amelia, the 'blogger granny' (amis95.blogspot.com) recently deceased.
We're working on this project about creating an award named after her, it's goal would be to help the elder to get access to blogs or to just create one of their own. We want to help the elder to adopt the new technologies and assume an active participation in our society. If you like the idea, we invite you to know about us and give us your opinion. This is very important for us.

We'll be waiting for you!

Thanks.


So, I invite you to join this initiative just as I will. Okay, I have a soft spot for old women, they all remind me of my own grandmother, but I still believe this is something good.

Cheers!

That's a great idea, Chris.

Former pin-up girl Margaret Caldwell (102) who writes a weekly column for the Desert Valley Times, of Mesquite, Nevada, is the world's oldest columnist. Randall Butisingh (96), a poet, writer and philosopher born in British Guiana (now Guyana) and living in Florida, is probably the world's oldest blogger. For details, see http://tinyurl.com/qdzsy2
