Hello loves, I’ll be joining the 2022 Afrobloggers’ Winter ABC Challenge!
Over the years, I have participated in the Afrobloggers’ Winter ABC Challenge using my other blog, http://thelouisamsiska.com. This year, I decided that I wanted to join the festival using Becoming a Mommy to amplify the voices of mothers in Malawi and Africa.
My goal is to highlight some of the pressing issues that women go through on the daily basis as a way to educate each other on such topics. One of the things I am very passionate about nowadays is making sure that every girl has access to information about motherhood, pregnancy, postpartum, and more from other moms.
I am hoping that I can be able to incorporate my podcast as well, but I am not making promises.
Read what the Winter ABC Challenge is all about below, the themes it encompasses, and comment on some of the topics you would like me to write about. I want to make this beneficial to everyone that reads the blog.
What is the Afrobloggers’ Winter ABC Challenge?
Winter ABC Challenge is a month-long storytelling festival commencing from the 1st of June each year. This is the 4th year running and we are inviting all African bloggers to create content for the 22 weekdays of June. The weekends are reserved for resting, planning out content, and networking. Read more about WinterABC here.
Each year is always different….
For Winter ABC Challenge 2021 we had no specific topics we simply had weekly themes serving as a guide to content creation whilst previously we used to suggest daily topics. This year we have a hybrid structure where there still are weekly themes but at least two posts have been put forward by organizations partnering with Afrobloggers for the 2022 Storytelling festival. Remember you have artistic freedom to interpret and adapt the articles in a way that resonates with your blog or niche. Some topics carry a prize.
