Harry and Barbara Cooper (98 and 93, respectively) are the world’s oldest bloggers. The couple – who have been married for 72 years – met during a tennis match in Los Angeles in 1937. The pair began blogging in 2008 – their blog, “The OGs,” has become an Internet sensation; the Coopers now have over 4,500 Facebook fans.
Barbara is better known as “Cutie” on their blog, where she wears several hats. As a food critic, she recently wrote a review of French pastries at a local restaurant. She danced in a video where she showcased her moves, waving her arms and sashaying her hips. In another post, she offered her opinion of Lady Gaga’s music video “Alejandro.”
“I think it’s nothing new, it’s nothing charming,” Barbara wrote in the music-related post last month. “It’s got no message. I’m sorry, I did not enjoy this.”
Readers can also seek Barbara’s advice on the “Ask Grandma” video series. Even with her meek voice, she delivers no-nonsense answers on friends, family and relationships.
Harry appears online as “PopPop,” a nickname given to him by his granddaughter Kim when she was a child. He’s the quieter sidekick in the duo, but he has his own section of the blog called “PopPop’s Adventure Corner,“ where he tells jokes and sings songs he learned in the Army.
What do you think – does the couple who blogs together – or engages in any mutual creative activity together – stay together?
