I made the newspaper today

I am very stoked today after being featured in an article in the Afrikaans newspaper, Die Burger.  It's actually the second time I make the paper in two weeks after the article about the launch of Travel Massive Port Elizabet last week.  This article is about me though and my blogging along with the fact that The Firefly Photo Files was runner-up in the African Blogger Awards' Photography category. Travel blogging is huge in the Western Cape and Gauteng while in the Eastern Cape tourism products are only starting to tap into the exposure that blogs, along with the social media that goes with it, can give them.  Anyways, this post isn't about educating people about the benefits of blogs, its to brag a bit with the article.


  1. brag away ...
    Congratulations, well deserved!!

  2. WOOOOOWWW ! Congratulations, Jonker. You promote PE and Eastern Cape tourism so well, you deserve this accolade. Whoohoo!

  3. Congrats to you Jonker! You've worked hard to get this recognition.
