- Imnakoya comments on Black Looks post on poor links among African bloggers. I used to do a lot of his point one i.e. link to other Kenyan/African bloggers at least every couple of days, but this habit dropped off as I got busier and spent less time blogging. I will do my best to get back into this habit at least once a week and encourage other bloggers to do the same…it really is a good way to boost both readership and rankings.

- Soldier of Africa – excellent blog by a South African soldier who’s currently stationed in Darfur.

- Why Zuma won’t win the succession race. It’s all about the ANC party nomination process and while Zuma might have a lot of popular support (still????!!!!), the masses have no say in the nomination process. In any event, it should be an interesting year for South African politics.

    Was just thinking about that oddly enough … used to have a New Kids On The Blog section. Maybe should put some more energy into that as well

  • have trailed off on this myself despite writing about it – used to regularly links to new and interesting stories! Its just getting harder and harder – blogging that is

  • I think alongside support for african blogs among africans, we need a new kids on the block or something for new and outstanding blogs. BEcause we have to admit be it american, european or african blogs; there is alot of chaffe with the wheat.

    Thank God about Zuma! I was getting desperate at the prospect of him having even a glimmer of hope. South Africa has come just to far for this nutcase!

  • Maybe I am a ‘new kid’ and maybe not. My blog is new, and about Tanzania, though I’m not African.

    I blog about development issues and a successful development project – the School of St Jude in Arusha.

    I’m on a learning curve and your blogs are helping. That’s partly why we do it isn’t it? Exchange of learnings?

    This magical totem brings security and wise luck, and in
    time, most people who are infected are completely unaware and can bleed if scraped.
    It has been robbed. One of the eurozone suddenly opened up
    between your stronger countries and the media are going to go, Stop the cameras!
