Over the last few years I’ve dealt with and became aware of many bloggers in South Africa. The community is growing (in my humble opinion). South Africans are starting new blogs every day. In most cases South African blogs don’t get the exposure they deserve. As a new blogger one might find it hard to become part of the community and to discuss blogging issues or to exchange ideas. Blogging, in it’s nature is a social activity. Having someone to talk to helps immensely when it comes to things like Writer’s Block. Twitter is a great way to make new friends in the blogosphere. I’ve decided to make a list of South African bloggers that are using Twitter, to make things a little easier for new bloggers. At the same time those bloggers in the list get exposure. So, its a win win situation (in my opinion).
This is a list of South African Bloggers that I found / dealt with / met over the last few years on Twitter:
There you have it, plenty of them on the list (and some of you thought that blogging might be dead or dying). This list has been organized alphabetically by Twitter handle. This list of Bloggers proves that blogging is alive and well in South Africa.
This list is incomplete. I would love to expand it. If you are a South African blogger and you are using Twitter, please E-mail Me your Twitter handle, Blog URL, Blog Title and the city that you are located in and after screening it, I’ll add your blog onto the list. If the list gets too long I will most probably create a 2nd post. You can also report dead links on this post via E-mail. I will be tweeting the new additions every time I add them on here. This will most probably be done on a weekly basis. Feel free to share this post with your friends on the Social Networks (on Facebook, Twitter, Stumble Upon, etc). Feel free to comment on this post if you have an opinion about this venture. Feedback is appreciated and welcome.
