Just Another WordPress Weblog

I WASN’T ALONE STARTING UP A BLOG IN MAY. HERE ARE THE MAY WRAP-UP STATS. FROM WORDPRESS.

# 387,416 blogs were created.
# 411,704 new users joined.

So…you can imagine the power this innovative means of communication will have in the world and for the individual. Hopefully, more and more Africans will use blogging to heighten awareness of the too many social ills around us. This will generate more shame and anger in us, the two catalysts for change, I believe.

And think of the celebrations of heart and community when positive change does happen and is broadcasted!

Why does poverty have to grow exponentially. Why can’t improving social conditions and social justice start tipping the balance.

Blogging will create more tipping points. It’s like Paul Revere’s ride, minus the horse and add a little hardware!

If only our leaders personally blogged. I think voters should demand it of their representatives. But do ya even know where his or her constituency office is in your riding?
