CaribWorldNews, MIAMI, FL, Thurs. Aug. 20, 2009: The world`s oldest blogger is reportedly a ninety-six-year-old man, born in Guyana.
Randall Butisingh, a Florida resident, succeeded Maria Amelia Lopez Solino as the oldest blogger on the web after the 97-year old Spanish great grandmother died in May 2009, according to Calcutta News.Net.
Butisingh, who was born in then British Guyana, was recently awarded the Greypow Award for best senior site by the website lifebeginsat80.com, which periodically lists the best senior sites on the web.
The great grandfather, who grew up in Buxton, East Coast Demerara, where he received his primary education, has the distinction of being the only one among the senior bloggers to type and post his own blog.
He reportedly became a pupil teacher at the age of 15 and spent 45-years as a teacher. He retired in 1972.
Butisingh has seven children, 19 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He has also written three books of poems and was recognized as a Poet of Merit by the American Poetry Association.
