This Blog is extremely delighted to announce that we have been given an award, the Best Blog Thinker Award, from Mama Shujaa over at Mama Shujaa blog.
As most of you reading will know, we normally don't do awards here and when we do accept an award, it is because there is meaning behind it. This one is one of those meaningful ones.
We are quite honoured and grateful for this, the second award this blog has received in its short life. The first was when we were voted one of the Top Five Blogs For Amnesty Day by Reconstitution, based in the USA.
The Best Blog Thinker Award we have been awarded by Mama Shujaa was created by B. J. Roan who says of the award:
"This award acknowledges the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values with each message they write. Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It's a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."
I will now pass this award on to the following Bloggers: Kenyan Poet, a deep thinking and soul-nourishing blog out of Kenya, which is quite a vibrant blogging community.
Transforming Zambian Leadership, an impressive Zambian blog that I find engaging in the way it continuously questions the status quo and presents suggestions and alternative ways to raise the level of political thinking in Africa and Zambia beyond the mundane.
Afromusing, a blog that strongly advocates renewable energy, which happens to be one of my passions. I find Afromusing quite inspiring, with posts that highlight the best innovative ideas and developments coming out of Kenya and Africa.
And of course, my friend SOLOMONSYDELLE at Nigerian Curiosity, who has also just won the Best Political Blog in the just-ended Nigerian Blog Awards. Nigerian Curiosity opens up Nigeria to the world with its incisive posts about developments within the country, the latest I found engaging being the efforts to rebrand Nigeria.
Check them out and you will realise why I think so highly of them.
