When I first started blogging I struggled to find a place to belong in the blogosphere. There seemed to be very few people blogging from this side of the world.
With time I discovered I was not alone, the were many others from different corners of the world and continent, and I wanted to know more about the, to know what their blogging journeys were like in their respective countries and if they had insights to share.
Afrobloggers was born from a need such as this, to bring together the community of African Bloggers and to have a place where one could find someone whom would read their posts. Some like me act like we write selfishly for ourselves but deep down a tiny part of us just like with any artist would wish for another pair of eyes to not so much as understand but to read, maybe even relate just a little, learn something or just to marvel and laugh at your creative dexterity.
Where the world meets African Bloggers…
The beauty of Afrobloggers is in the diversity, it’s a place you can belong and still be individual in a community of kindred folk.
Who is Afrobloggers? I am African Blogger, you are an African Blogger, we are Afrobloggers, no one started it, but someone gave it a name and now we bring the community together making the circle bigger and better.
Reading through the entries for the #WinterABC challenge has had me beaming like a proud uncle seeing new names mixed with familiar names and faces, look how our family grows. Maybe my dreams are not such an impossibility…
