THE FIRST FREE NIGERIAN BLOGGING COMMUNITY?

Digital Content

This week saw what claims to be the first Nigerian blogging community created by Nigerians for Nigerians launched this week. The idea behind this website (nigeria.ms) is to give every Nigerian an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that owning a weblog can bring.

The blog hosting service is brought to you by the founders of the Nigerian Computer Society online community at http://www.nigeriancomputersociety.com. When asked, why create another weblog hosting service? Michael Gbadebo (CEO Creotec UK Limited), simply replied, this service is provided by Nigerians for Nigerians - it's our way of telling the world, we are capable of looking after our own and to ensure that every Nigerian with access to the Internet in or outside Nigeria can publish content online without worrying about the cost.

This is part of an international drive to promote and encourage the use of the web and Internet within Nigeria. With this free service, everyone can publish and maintain content freely on the web.
