Brent Lindeque, founder of Good Things Guy, launched the blog almost five years ago to change the national conversation and give South Africans a balance to the news in South Africa.

The South African Blog Awards is the official showcase and recognition platform for the very best of South African blogs. It endeavours to bring South African bloggers to the forefront of people’s attention, both locally and internationally, increasing exposure for South Africa’s great bloggers around the globe.

Through the recognition process of current South African bloggers and the publicity created around the awards, blogs and bloggers, the platform looks to encourage people who are outside the realm of blogging to discover the fantastic world of blogging.

The South African Blog Awards has evolved since its inception in 2010 through a process of public opinion, blogger opinion and social media expert’s opinion. Entries were open in 16 main categories, including Best Business Blog, Best Environmental Blog, Best Food and Wine Blog and Best Lifestyle Blog.
