There is no gain saying that Africa is a large and very diverse continent and there is are several news websites and blogs focused on Africa, that are authored by Africans on the continent and in the diaspora.
I was informed of an excellent blog post this morning on a blog known as “Learn-gasm” that features a list of 100 blogs focused on Africa and/or African countries. The blog post is titled “100 Best Blogs for Learning About Africa” and the introduction by the blogger Alisa Miller, reads:
The continent of Africa is the second-most populated in the world and has 53 countries within its bounds. With so many people and nationalities, it should be no surprise that the diversity found there is enormous. While poverty and war are a part of Africa, so is technology, bustling cities, and unique culture found nowhere else on Earth. These blogs bring together the richness and diversity that is Africa with voices covering specific countries, experiences across the borders, news, technology, art, and culture.
It then goes on to list the blogs, categorized into groups and included some description. Yours truly was included under a category titled “Perspectives from Many African Countries” with the following description:
Oluniyi David Ajao. Born in Nigeria and living in Ghana, this blogger shares his experiences and his voice to help others recognize Africa as the majestic continent it is.
In a nutshell, the blog post is worth book-marking.
