My Mom: Blogging Pioneer

AARP Bulletin: Older, Wiser Bloggers:
"Among the pioneers is Millie Garfield, 80, of Swampscott, Mass., who's been writing 'My Mom's Blog' for the past three years. 'One day, I saw an article in the Boston Globe about bloggers, and so I asked my son Steve, who's into computers, 'What the heck is this blogging thing?' ' she says. 'He said, 'Ma, you should start your own blog.' '

Using Web-based blogging software, she's able to share with the world her observations and musings—even her recipe for apple crisp. Garfield's recent topics have ranged from sightseeing at the Grand Canyon to reminiscences about 'Mexican Hayride,' a 1940s Cole Porter musical. She's become so hooked on blogging, in fact, that she seldom watches TV anymore."
