In an age where newspapers, magazines and television programs are finding homes on the web, it seems like blogs have finally taken over, giving us the latest news, updating us on fashion trends, source of entertainment, and giving us the insight into the world of technology and art. Blogging has become a part of youth culture – it’s how we connect and engage with each other. Here are my 10 favourite blogs:
10. PUSH THE MOVEMENT
One of the only international blogs I’m into. This blog has it all; from classic pictures to beautiful art, to controversial pictures and those that make you fall in love with Hip Hop all over again. It’s mainly picture-focused, so if you’re into visually-appealing blogs, you have to check this one out. This blog is definitely for the fellas.
9. THULANE LIKES, LOVES LIVES
A blog done by @_toolz_. This local publicist is sophisticated. In his blog he has everything from music to fashion, to videos and art. This blog is clean and very neatly put together and features content from South Africa as well as international news. Check it out and let me know.
8. IN FLEX WE TRUST
Blog of international superstar DJ Funkmaster Flex, a truly Hip Hop-inspired blog featuring women, sneakers, cars, music, videos and all the things you would be into if you are a Hip Hop head. This blog is a must-see, check it out and you’ll never be behind on Hip Hop news.
7. PRINCESS IN THE BUILDING
You get to see life through the eyes of an architect and socialite who loves Hip Hop and fashion – a very visual blog she also posts up pics of herself often and helps a lot that she is good looking I would say this blog is mostly for ladies.
6. 7300 DAYS OF WINTER
This blog belongs to a close friend of mine, Azola … a Hip Hop princess. She’s a really interesting person and this blog gives us an insight into who she is and what her interests are.
5. LIFE OF NGITIS
I had to add my blog here. It’s a simple blog about who I am and the things I’m into, made for the people who support me to be able to keep up with what’s going on in my life – definitely not for the faint-hearted!
4. NOUSE LIFESTYLE
This blog is one of the best tumblr accounts I’ve ever seen! It truly leaves me speechless… I can’t even describe it, just check it out.
3. ICE CREAM ONLINE
A youth-focused blog focusing on South African youth and the things we are into, from social events to celebrity interviews to the latest fashion trends.
2. STREET WORD IS
A blog about everything! I’ve done a few interviews with them and they’re always the first to release exclusive information, thus keeping them very relevant.
1. JUST CURIOUS
The ultimate blog for Mzansi celebrity news, Just Curious always has the latest scoop, and the comments on their articles are quite entertaining!
