How many South African blogs are there?

by oneafrikan on August 24, 2005

I’m wondering how many South African blogs there are in circulation? By South African I mean by a South African person or entity, or on a topic relating to South Africa.
Anyone have any ideas? Anyone know of any South African blog listings?

http://allafrica.com/afdb/blogs/ looks like a good starting point.

Thanks Josh ;-)

Been there before, and it looks like it’s grown a lot.
From the looking around I’ve done it looks like the largest resource of S. African blogs…

hi gareth, not sure if this is exactly what you’re looking for, but two friends of mine recently started indie-publishing-type* blogs (although their topics are not za-focussed)

The Schpat Dope is inspired by Uncle Cecil’s Straight Dope
ask zenstar is an agony aunt column for roleplayers, who have a small but thriving community in za, and cape town in particular

I know that zenstar has registered on BlogExplosion, and it looks like you can query for South African blogs there

* rather than personal-diary-type
