Brand_south_africa In my most recent post, I announced the launch of a new blog I’ve been working on for a couple of months called We Blog the World. Here, as well as on the Brand South Africa blog, a group of American and South African bloggers will be posting stories, video and photos as they tour the country starting Thanksgiving week.

The International Marketing Council (IMC) is sponsoring the blogging expedition. IMC’s Simon Barber, who is organizing the tour schedule together with Graeme Addison, is putting together an incredible agenda that includes Stellenbosch, Darling, Alexander Bay, Port Nolloth, Carltonville, Magaliesberg, Cradle, Soweto and Johannesburg. Renown South African blogger Matthew Buckland who will be joining us on-site also wrote about the tour kick-off in depth. Simon wrote an extensive blog post about the tour this week on thoughtleader, so be sure to check it out.

I’ve been working with Simon and Graeme to organize a diverse group of 10-12 bloggers who will tour the country from late November to December 10th. More on the itinerary as we get closer.

Joining me on this exciting tour is:

Zadi Diaz

Mona Gable

Ray Lewis

John Gartner

Chris Morrison

David Sasaki

Eliane Fioret

Graeme Wood

I’ll be blogging to both Down the Avenue and We Blog the World

South Africans bloggers onboard the tour include:

Below is a snippet of the We Blog the World South Africa page which will be fleshed out after the tour begins later this month.
