Top 20 Male Bloggers in South Africa

by Claire Minnaar

The Top 20 Female Bloggers in South Africa blog post was so well received, so I couldn’t resist putting one for the men together. It was quite fun doing it and with my friend and co-worker, Suz, we hunted them all you blokes down. It seems that 19/20 of the bloggers are, like me, Wordpress fans (Yippee!!) and it was a lot of fun to see the different profile pictures for the guys opposed to the women – so different, but I love it!

Once again, I have included the links to their websites, their Twitter profiles and included their Blog System under each of their profiles, so you can check each of them out as you run through the list.

Please Note:

  • These have not be done in ANY particular order.
  • Top bloggers listed below are based on various aspect in research me and my team has done – includes Twitter popularity, Social Media, general media coverage, aggregators, search engine rankings and general popularity.
