First and foremost, let’s start by defining who a blogger is. According to wikipedia.com a blogger is someone who writes blogs posts for a blog. A blog can be described as an online journal or diary.

It’s not a thing of today when you hear the popular saying ”A prophet is never welcomed in his home town This is the exact manner is which some Cameroonians react when they hear about bloggers. To them, Cameroon has no blogger yet. After reading the definition of blogger I wonder how they interpreted it. To them, a blogger is any idle someone with a laptop, cheap phones and data connection for CFA1000. From such description one can easily measure the IQ of many Cameroonians.
Why will Cameroonians think that there are no bloggers in Cameroon yet? Do bloggers need an extra body part to come into existence? Do they need mystical powers?

Mind you, the higher population saying Cameroon doesn’t have bloggers are a group of people who don’t even hire services of bloggers.
Below are screenshots of some Camer acts recognizing bloggers.
