    With commercialisation of blogs, same diseases that have been eating our mainstream media threaten the social media as well (including blogs).

    Check the leading blogs like Michuzi, Haki Ngowi and Mjengwa they are carrying same stuffs as our newspapers. They are too boring. Nothing revolutionary as they should be. Mafisadi have infilitrated them. Nini Chanzo: Pesa.

    Most blogs are too shallow and some bloggers are just too abusive and intolerant to contrary views and opinion. In case you want to check the shallowness of contributions just visit JAMII FORUMS where toorent of abuse and insults is the order of the day.

    Did you notice that the three blogs you referred to are all photo-blogs?Of course,I'm not making any excuse on their behalf but I'm just trying to remind you the said bloggers are more into pics than news.

    I assume you pay little attention to what we call "perspective" or "point of view".I blog,and what I write about doesn't necessarily suit every reader's taste.What you describe as "shallow" or "abusive" might actually be a blogger's perspective.Remember,a blog is just like a privately-owned media.Its theme and content is largely dependent on a particular blogger's point of view or preference.I personally take a very strong anti-ufisadi stance,and I get tons of "abusive" comments and mails criticising my stance,mainly from people I suspect to be beneficiaries of ufisadi,if not the economic saboteurs themselves or their associates.

    I have been blogging since 2006 (my blog goes by the same moniker -KULIKONI UGHAIBUNI),and my general conclusion is,majority of our fellows Tanzanians are more into photo-blogs and gossip-oriented publications than the likes of mine which dwells on topical dicussions and analysis.

    By the way,have you visited Ngurumo,Matondo,Mpayukaji,Subi,Mubelwa,to mention but a few?I'm almost certain that if you did you could have a second opinion instead of your drawn conclusion that majority of the blogs are shallow and abusive.
