A Voice Unheard

It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.

Confucius

More and more Africans have begun using blogs as a form of self expression. This is due to the fact that it is relatively easy to start and maintain a blog.

As a result, blogging on the African continent has enjoyed a lush period of colossal growth. African bloggers, like sculptors are now helping to shape a more positive Africa through the unique stories they tell.

African bloggers are especially prominent within the fashion niche, which has many an African rising star.

This is due mainly as a consequence of the fact that blogging allows them to reach markets outside their own as well as to cut costs related to marketing, public relations and brand awareness.

Blogging is the remote, that has helped turn the usually mute African youth into a group of individuals with a highly outspoken voice that is very loud. It has further helped in transmitting that same voice into the ears of an audience that has for so long been deprived of it.

And as blogging continues to take root across the continent, one can only expect this voice to grow louder and louder(and louder) til our leaders have no choice but to listen.
