Am I the last person to find out about 95-year old Spanish blogger María Amelia López? Her blog, A mis 95 años (which I think means “to my 95 years”), is a world-wide sensation, generating 350,000 hits from every continent in a matter of months. Here’s the description:
My friends in Internet, today I am 95 years old. My name is Amelia and I was born in Muxía (A Coruña – Spain) on December the 23rd of 1911. Today it’s my birthday and my grandson, who is very stingy, gave me a blog.
Heh. She blogs about anything that occurs to her—war memories, culture, politics, current events, and old people who let themselves go. She is a life-long socialist and Christian, and not afraid to say so. Her blog is in Spanish, but there are some news articles posted in English, so do have a look.
