The announcement that there
would be a one week blogging challenge for Ugandans was made last week
with about three days notice, and
naturally one of the biggest issues was whether people would be able to keep
going for all the seven days. Be that as it may, that did not stop people from
There are people that said
their week ends on Friday therefore they only participated for five days since
the challenge did not specify the number of days.
There are those that missed the
part where the challenge was a post per day and ended up posting many posts on
one day and posting nothing on other days.
There are others that missed
the bit where these were supposed to be recordings concerning Uganda and went
ahead to post about whatever it is they wanted.
A few went ahead and re-posted
stuff that they had done in the past which sort of defeats the purpose here but

To the people that took the
time to read, share and or comment on the blogs (especially mine), thank you
To the organizers, please
communicate such challenges ahead of time so that people can take enough time
off planning and preparing to ensure better quality posts are produced.
May be set targets and guidelines
to help the bloggers get better at their craft.
To the bloggers that
participated, I hope you achieved what you were hoping for. If you didn’t set
any goals before participating in the challenge, be sure to do so next time. May
you keep keeping on.
To the haters, LOL nah I have
nothing to say to y’all.
When it’s all said and done,
may the Ugandan blogging community become bigger and better.
P.S: We want cake!
