Hey – it’s Blogday 2005! For those of you who haven’t heard of it, the idea is to find five blogs from other cultures, countries or areas of interest to your own. Then, you recommend them on your blog to draw your readers’ attention to them and in the end, we all discover some interesting new blogs.
So… in the interest of the greater good of the blogosphere, peace, love and understanding, here goes my selection of five. And there’s not a food blog among them! You will see a definite African slant though – there are few enough African blogs out there, so it’s time they got some exposure!
This is Zimbabwe Run by the Sokwanele civil action support group, this group blog is written from inside Zimbabwe by real Zimbabweans from all walks of life. A good source for finding out what’s really going on in a country where the free press is all but destroyed.
Apparently Nothing Fabulous photos posted every day by Lorissa, a South African photographer living in London.
Sotho Rethabile lives in Paris but his heart is in his native country, the mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Interesting and varied posts and lots of links to all things Sotho
Mostly Africa Regular news and views from all over Africa
My Mom’s Blog So what’s it like being the Internet’s oldest blogger? Fabulous, according to the thoroughly delightful Millie Garfield!
[And a big thank you to the following people who selected Cooksister as one of their 5 recommended blogs:
Farid, a French Algerian chef currently teaching in California - check out his fascinating Algerian cuisine blog
Shauna who blogs from Seattle and maintains a really cool gluten-free blog
