Last month, a new media opened in Denmark which focuses entirely on Africa. It goes by the name Afrikablog.dk and it is created to introduce a more nuanced picture of Africa to the Danish public.
Afrikablog.dk is an independent and critical media run by volunteer editors, writers, photographers and researchers that tell stories of sub-Saharan Africa. The website has a News section with self-produced journalistic articles with insight into a diverse and vibrant Africa, and – in addition to the coverage of “usual topics” such as war, conflict and famine – Afrikablog.dk also focuses on culture, business, development and daily life in African nations. MYC4 has been asked to contribute in the Business section.

Here are a couple of other interesting blogs which also present a different perspective on Africa:
- Africa is a Country – The media blog that is not about famine, Bono, or Barack Obama.
- See Africa Differently – We’re all about telling a different story about Africa, sharing the under-reported positive side that you rarely see.
- How We Made It In Africa – Insight into Business in Africa.
- Richard Stupart on Matador Network – Richard Stupart lives and works in South Africa, exploring as often as possible the strange and unknown places that his continent is so rich in.
