VOF Week Three (Unveiling Hidden Treasures)
An avid reader of blogs that is what I would consider myself to be until recently a friend invited me to his social network www.safaritalk.net. Going through the website I was wondering what is there for me to share and/or learn. But just as I have said elsewhere here on worldpulse.com. I take every opportunity given me to be a mouth piece of the women and girls in rural Africa.
And so my curiosity brought me to another challenge, What do I blog about on safari talk and relate it to the empowerment of women and girls in rural Africa. Now, this was a big challenge, but I have been in this place before I thought, The place where I know that I must say something about issues affecting women in Africa. But in what context?
Soon I had an idea. Very quickly I came up with the title of my new blog, "Treasures of Africa". Perfect I thought it just fits the tune and touch of Safari. And by the end of the last stop of my last sentence this in brief was the description of my blog. That the Treasures of Africa will unveil the hidden contributions of women of substance who add value to the growth and profitability of the tourism industry by making handicrafts, keeping poultry and supplying tourist hotels, the list was growing as I continued to demystify the role of women in tourism seen only as "escorts" to tourists.
And so today my blog is up. I have jumped the huddle what do I blog about? My next huddles include
How often should I drop entries in my blog? I know the subject being in my line of service is captivating but may be my hands are full of activities with The Rafiki Club and Project Africa, family, studies and events here and there to be taken care of. I hope I find sometime at least once a month.
My next huddle will be how do i generate traffic to my newly created blog? If I am a mouth piece of the voices of women in Africa, then they must be heard. I hope that those who visit the blog will learn something out of it. And I also Intend to encourage the girls in Project Africa to help me blog. Already we are mentoring girls in ICT and soon they will be joining us on sites like www.safaritalk.net and worldpulse.com making their opinion known loud and clear.
Are there more huddles to jump? I will face them when that time comes. Please visit my new blog on http://safaritalk.net/index.php?autocom=blog&blogid=16&
