Afrobloggers is a platform for showcasing African bloggers, inspiring creativity, peer to peer learning, networking and a culture of collaborations towards growth and more visibility.
Why African Bloggers?
- Bloggers play a critical role of telling undiluted grassroots stories. Their stories often told from lived experiences, occupy the gap which profit seeking media often choose to ignore or deliberately crop out.
- Blogging like any creative hustle does contribute to Africa’s creative economy, creating employment and economic sustainability for many.
- Most Bloggers are influential in their spheres, nurturing and supporting them translates to good collaborations which can be harnessed for good community changes through awareness, lobbying and advocacy.
- Spotlighting Bloggers helps to expose them to many different opportunities. Many have partnered with reputable organisations, while some have started their own companies. Blogging can be so much more!
