BloggingGhana Organises First Ghana BlogCamp

BlogCamp Ghana logo

BloggingGhana, Ghana's biggest group of bloggers and social media enthusiasts presents a day of workshops and networking dubbed BlogCamp Ghana 2012. I will encourage everyone who can to attend this event as I can testify to how social media has changed my worldview and improved my life. BlogCamp 2012 indeed gives voice to the new generation!

Exchange of ideas during January 2012 meeting

BlogCamp seeks to educate and inform attendees on the benefits of social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+ and blogs. Further, BlogCamp 2012 will demonstrate how the youth can leverage the power of social media for positive social change, good governance, accountability, technology, business and education; this will ensure that there is more online content from Africa. BlogCamp 2012 will also be used to launch Ghana’s first Social Media Awards scheme, aimed at rewarding various activists and contributors to the growth of social media in Ghana. Visit the BlogCamp Agenda page for further details.

BlogCamp 2012 has been made possible through the efforts of the BloggingGhana Community and the kind support of our partners: Vodafone, Google, United States Embassy, Nandimobile, Web4Africa, Citi 97.3 Fm, Mawuli Sikanku Photography and REDD Kat Pictures.

  1. This is really terrific to read! I don't know what platforms you and your members use, but you may also want to check out the Wordpress 'WordCamp' events that happen through the US (and perhaps elsewhere?). I've participated in a few and found them to be really great, energetic events.

  2. Thanks James for your comment. We use different platfoms-blogger, Wordpress, tumblr, posterous,etc. Yes,I know of WordCamp. Actually, there have beeen WordCamp events in Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and perhaps other Afrcan countries. We wanted to do an event that will encompass different social media platforms. I'm sure Ghana will host a WordCamp too some day. :).
