Start Blogging Africa
I’m Mark. I’m passionate about blogging. I’m passionate about Africa. I’m passionate about Africa’s people.
Africa is beautiful, bold, complex, complicated, diverse, raw and and vibrant.
1,2 billion people call Africa their home - with Africa’s population expected to grow to 2 billion by 2050. Africa also has the youngest population in the world with an estimated 70% of Africa’s population being under the age of 30.
Africa resonates with infinite opportunity - waiting to be unlocked. I’m passionate about empowering Africa through blogging

Africa’s Best Guide to Starting a Blog in 2019 will guide you, step-by-step, to start a blog in under 30 minutes.
Blog: a blog is a type of website that is written in an informal or conversational style.
Originally, blogs were typically owned and managed by an individual (or small group of people); however, businesses and corporates have increasingly recognised the power of blogging as a means to connect with their target market on a deeper level by engaging in more conversational (and honest) dialogue.
Blogging has enjoyed increasing popularity and explosive growth internationally since the dawn of the new millennium. The popularity of blogging has been slower to emerge in Africa - but (finally) blogging is progressively, even if still sporadicly, trending across the African continent.
From a hobby for sharing ideas and knowledge to a side hustle to make money to promoting African businesses, Africa benefits from increased participation in the blogosphere.
Blogging is about personal development, connecting, giving back and making money - and sometimes just as a hobby. Blogging also gives writers a voice - a platform for advocacy to promote positive change.
Starting a blog and developing an African blogging culture can change both your life and the lives of the people in your sphere of influence. Start blogging Africa.
