Winter Blogging challenge began on 1 June 2020. This is an annual event that lasts for a whole month. African bloggers will be blogging on 22 selected topics. It’s a blogging festival, voices are sharing from diverse backgrounds, religion, culture, writing styles and experiences.
Here are skimmed highlights of the challenge as it happens:
Day 1: Introduction pledge
I decide to do it, cause I wanna challenge myself. I saw a quote once that said “You only grow outside your comfort zone”, and this is outside my comfort zone, not only about blogging every day, but some of the topics are a bit new for me to write about, so I wanna do it. I wanna grow, and try new things and sharing new things on my blog. The world is already changing, I should be able to change a bit with it. Even it is something small like this.

I have often seen blogging challenges like these before but I never get involved because most of these challenges are started by predominately white blogging groups and I find that my black voice in those networks isnt heard or ignored entirely.
