ugandan bloglove

Voting opened yesterday for the 2009 Bloggies, the “Web’s longest-running blog awards,” and of the five blogs in the running for Best African Weblog, two originated in Uganda.

Appfrica has its finger on the pulse of African IT, including podcasts from last December’s Facebook Dev Garage in Kampala and an interview with Blogren Superstar Benge Solomon King. It’s also available in Luganda.

Scarlett Lion left Kampala last month to move to Liberia, but her site has been an integral part of the Ugandan blogging scene since 2007, and her archives hold a wealth of reflections and photography from all over the country.

Voting lasts until Monday, February 2, so head over soon and give your fellow blogren some love.
