Blogging has entered a realm of its own in Cameroon, from fad to industry. Cameroonians are entering the blogosphere daily, thousands every day from home and abroad. I’ve been blogging for over 5years and had no clue I was doing it. It was called “online journaling” and some called it “web diaries” or “blithering idiots writing on the Internet”. I tried not to blither, but I just did what I knew and now am known for what I did and continue to do: blog. Today, the evolution of this culture in Cameroon has led to the creation of the very first blogging event forum: BBCL, which took place December 30th 2014 at Le Meridien Bonanjo, Douala city center, Cameroon.
BBCL stands for Bold and Beautiful Camer Ladies. Started by a group of Cameroonian domestic and diaspora bloggers who decided to bridge the gap between bloggers, entrepreneurs and businesses.
At this event, you had the opportunity to be educated on what blogging is all about and how you could start a blog; not to forget the advantages of bloggers working hand in hand to promote businesses.
Guess stars were present including the new trending; now super star girl: Daphne.
Bravo to all sponsors for believing in this innovative initiative in Cameroon; MTN Cameroon, Baileys, Liber, pricewice.com, UrbanTV Africa…etc etc etc..
This event helped enlighten its audience from a wider spectrum of life, some of the development of blogs and lessons about blogging and how to blog, not to forget it advantages to entrepreneurs and Business. The followings were discussed:
