Different bloggers, blogs for, different reasons. I blog for lots different reasons. However, just as Global Voices identified me recently, I blog for social change.
Social changes comes slow, they face lots of resistances. In Africa, where I come from and proud to be from, social changes are even slower due to the fact that if allowed, they come as threats to most leaders. Therefore, these leaders normally preach what they actually don’t believe in. For hooks and crooks, they want to remain in power even if it means changing the constitutions undemocratically. Democracy means death to most of them. They wish even the word did not exist.
On the other hand, completely far from the other hand, I no longer believe in political leadership as a tool for positive changes in our societies. That is when I embrace the idea of blogging for social change not through politicians but through common people like you and me. After over forty years of claiming to be independent, it is obvious that, nothing much can come along. I am not giving up, I am just keeping it real. Gears need a shift. And guess what, it will be done sooner than later. What we need is conscious. What we need is to inform each other, load the arsenals of information.
