Can a blog change the world?

Can a blog change the world? Maybe not but a community could, now imagine bloggers across the continent writing about similar topics, what conversations do you think would be started?

Can a blog change the world? I don’t know but the possibilities are limitless, don’t die with your story untold

In June Afrobloggers hosts a blog everyday challenge where bloggers from all corners of the continent are invited to participate.

Unlike most blogging challenges that are common on the internet, the #WinterABC is not simply about the mundane and frivolous but set on raising consciousness about the continent… The narrative for Africa is mostly spoken for and spoken about and rarely does Africa speak for itself.

This challenge in a small way is supposed to ignite some critical conversations that we should be having about our experiences and observations:

If you have any suggestions for topics that should be included in this blog everyday challenge please do share and we will see how we can incorporate them into it, this is a chance for some of those you have always wanted to ask or have people talking about like is it just you or are we losing our identity, what does your identity even mean in this global world?

This will also be a great way to connect with bloggers from the Cape of Africa to the Horn Of Africa
and if you were considering starting a blog this might be the perfect way to jump into the blogging pool or if your blog was waning in consistency then the ideal challenge is to get back onto the horse and gain some momentum and make new friends too

    I think there are two ways to answer that question.

    The first way would be to question if blogs are actually part of African culture or they are just one avenue of expression in a few circles. For us to know that, we would need to do full fledged statistics and actually find out how many people consume what blogs have to offer.

    On the other hand though, I believe in ideas. Ideas have disrupted and even revolutionized the world for millennia. A small initiative, a small word, a photo a piece of music, an ethos, a philosophy and even a blog can change the way an entire group of people think and feel. Now, with social media, information is massive and people are consuming it on the go. Look st how big YouTube has become and you can see where the competitors are heading.

    That’s why I’m for people speaking in one voice and seeing where that will take us.
