Curating #UgBlogWeek is never an easy task. It means waking up early, sleeping late, eyes scrolling forever, fingers typing away, copy + paste, etc. It’s no longer a one man job.
After all the blogging during #UgBlogWeek we hope the bloggers keep on with the spirit of story telling and documenting. We believe when we write things down, they keep our past, guide our present and set the future.
Here are the numbers.
The Five (5) Alive blogged all seven days. These were
Duksey’s Thoughts. Flora’s seven blogs were a mix of humour addressing current affairs, relations and other serious matters. What we found interesting was their ease of reading. Humour works well in telling a story. Also, we think titles like “Spandex, bums, sweat and miles” are quite the hook.
Furayide’s thoughts Bwesigye could as well be called Literature Man! All his seven blogs were shares of his thoughts on Ugandan literature from 2011. He intimates that the posts were to reminisce on his deliberate focus on Ugandan Literature in 2011, and also as a shout-out to the intellectual labourers who make our society richer with their work.
Joel B Ntwatwa We think he cheated the 7 days with the poetry and the short stories 🙂 Otherwise, who doesn’t love a blogger who can write on tech, literature and society at the same time!?
Media Surgeon Ivan wrote more than seven blogs this week. Some days he produced 2 posts a day! He shared posts about faith, tech, social media. What
Wire James When we read his first entry for the week “I Sat PLE at 42”, we knew James takes a very serious look on life. All the seven posts were detailed and put a spotlight on society. One cannot help but add his feed to their weekly blog reads. There is much to learn from him.
