Africa is home to many talents, and writing is one of them. Some of the best-known book writers come from Africa, and as such, there is much that can be done to enhance the African literature, especially on the global platform. To do that, there are book bloggers who are keen on promoting African literature to the world. They do this in so many different ways, such that it becomes easy to recognize different writers from this continent. They can do this in the following ways.
Blogging about various African literature
The most obvious thing is to blog. Since we are living in a world of social media, African book bloggers can capitalize on it and share content that relates to different books. Since they have social media accounts that link with their websites, it is easy for the audience from all over the world to follow their work and even access some of the African literature. This will not only put the writers in a better position, but it also exposes them to the global audience. Bloggers can leverage the social media to instigate conversations that center around some books, which then acts as the springboard for the literature to reach a wider and globalized audience.The Role of Book Bloggers in Kenya
