If you are already blogging as a female entrepreneur, I recommend the following tips from three of Africa’s top women bloggers. They can help you to take your blog further and create the content you desire.

Find your voice: Bloggers often agree that voice is vital. MsAfropolitan, multiple-award-winning writer and blogger, suggests in her post 7 tips for African women bloggers: “I would like to encourage you to do everything you can to find your voice. Understand, however, that this ‘finding’ is a process. You will not wake up one morning and encounter your voice wrapped in a box underneath your pillow, and even if you did chances are that it would change as you change. I’ve come to see voice as not about speech but about sound. Voice is namely what evolves from really listening.” Read more here.

Don’t fear questions: Public relations specialist and lifestyle blogger Charell Star writes that bloggers should never be afraid of questions: “It’s impossible to know everything, and saying, ‘I don’t know,’ does not make you look weak. The quicker you ask about the things you’re unsure about the faster you can move on to the next stage. You’d be surprised how often pride keeps people from success.”

Use your passion: One popular blogging tip is to ensure you blog regularly, but Nancy Mwai, who has been acknowledged as a top South African fashion blogger, suggests that passion is what enables regular posting. In an interview at, Mwai says: “People always ask me how I manage to constantly update my blog. It’s one thing alone: passion. Whether your day is packed with meeting after meeting, if you have a passion for something, you’ll get an hour to dedicate to it.”
