Some members of the audience may have been sceptical – “blogging is too complex… where is the power for the connection, the internet is still a luxury” was the comment of one listener – but the BBC World Service Radio programme Network Africa showed that blogging in Africa is a reality – and a growing one.
In our second excerpt she talks about how easy and free it can be to start a blog in Africa, before her is Malawian blogger Mwai Kasamale talks about the blog he runs with his brother, Malawi Is! and the clip kicks off with the commenter to the programme I mentioned above.
“We need more education for blogging” is the final comment in that excerpt, sent to the programme via text message from Monrovia in Liberia. The programme provided much information and many links to do just that.
