As we head toward a momentous milestone for O-Blog-Dee-O-BLog-Da, I am posting this to thank you for your ongoing and kind support. A special thanks to the subscribers who for $18.63 per annum each, so kindly contribute to the expenses. At the time of writing this O-Blog-Dee-O-BLog-Da has had 988,953 reads which means we have 11,047 until we reach the One MILLION mark! The most popular article was read 20,495 times and I have written, with the help of the occasional guest, 2,800 posts/articles.
As it happens 2019 sought fit to deliver an award. Our first ever: The National Gay and Lesbian Association of Journalists (NLGJA) Excellence in Blogging Award – for our article about a violent refugee protest in Kakuma Camp, Kenya. This recognizes and platforms the plight of LGBTQI refugees in Kenya, and for me, in essence, serves to acknowledge the other scores of articles which I have written while serving as an advocate for LGBTQI refugees in the region. To read those articles here is a search result for “KAKUMA” on the Blog: https://oblogdee.blog/?s=kakuma
O-Blog-Dee-O-Blog-Da is a mish-mash of advocacy, opinion and news. And at year’s end we bring our popular: Heroes and Zeroes.
The Blog is followed by academics, researchers, government departments in the U.S. and abroad, World agencies, politicians, NGO’s and charitable organizations, activists, advocates, professionals and community alike.
If you would like to help O-Blog-Dee-O-Blog-Da reach that 1 MILLION Mark and beyond: Please consider passing this link along. Would it not be great to hit One Million on the very day we pick up the award at the NLGJA Convention in New Orleans on August 29, 2019.
