Currently Reading on the Internet

Today I came across this site called The Ageless Project  that registers blogs by the author's birthday. I will readily admit that I think this is a unique take for a blog directory, but when it gets right down to it, I have such a huge reading backlog that I never really find myself looking for something new to read. Add to that the amount of the workday that I spend looking at a computer monitor, and the last thing I want to do when I get home is look for even more things to keep me on the computer. (Ah, but she is willing to write a blog! Go figure.)

Still, even though it's not my style, The Ageless Project hooked me. How? By featuring the world's oldest blogger. 

Maria Amelia Lopez (b. 1911) was given a blog as a birthday present by a grandson and took to it immediately. These days she has the kind of readership that makes even pro-bloggers jealous. Since Srta. Lopez is from Spain and blogs in Spanish, I missed a lot of what was going on with her blog, but my two years of Spanish class in school did come through for some of it. Plus, there's some content in English (as well as several other languages), so there's no reason not to stop by and see for yourself what it's all about.
