BBC NEWS | Africa | African bloggers find their voice

Congratulations to Africa's bloggers and to those of us who (attempt to) write about Africa in the Blogosphere. I just love it when the MSM (mainstream media) gives good blog authors credit where credit is due. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. That is what it means to me...

Some of my favorite (favourite) blog authors are featured in this December 20th article by Andrew Heavens of BBC Focus Magazine including the formidable ethiopundit and Ethan Zuckerman of Global Voices Online and ...My Heart's in Accra. And when did they dressup the design of the BlogAfrica site? Their new design looks real slick, much better than the original layout.
Does BlogAfrica accept ATOM feeds for blog post updates yet, Ethan?

The world's leading politicians, business leaders, and professional media companies are starting to listen up to the Blogosphere, and I would advise that they listen up good because "the little people" around the world are talking tough and from the heart.
Millions of 'em. Voters and consumers. Oh my!

Are you listening Sir? Are you listening Ma'am? Great. Fantastic!

Opinionated Voice

The redesign's a couple months old at this point... and yes, we should be able to accept Atom at this point. I'll get you hooked up.
