    'World's oldest blogger' dies in Australia

    An Australian woman described as the world's oldest Internet blogger has died at the age of 108 after posting a final message about singing "a happy song" in her nursing home.

    Olive Riley "passed away peacefully on July 12 and will be mourned by thousands of Internet friends and hundreds of descendants and other relatives," a note on her website said.

    Riley had posted more than 70 entries on her blog from Woy Woy on the east coast since February last year, sharing her thoughts on modern life and her experiences living through the entire 20th century.

    Born in the outback town of Broken Hill on October 20 1899, she lived through two world wars and raised three children while doing various jobs, including ranch cook and barmaid.

    In her final post on June 26, she wrote: "I can't believe I've been here in this nursing home for more than a week.

    "How the days have flown, even though I've been in bed most of the time. I still feel weak, and can't shake off that bad cough.
