Good Things Guy Scoops Best Blog At The South African Blog Awards

Avance Media’s Survey Recognises Good Things Guy As Fourth Most Influential South African
Brent Lindeque, Founder of Good Things Guy.

The Good Things Guy has been named the Best Blog in South Africa for the third year in a row. The blog also came in tops as the Best Lifestyle Blog in the country for 2019.

Brent Lindeque, the founder of Good Things Guy, launched the blog almost five years ago to change the national conversation and give South Africans a positive balance to the bad news in the country.

The South African Blog Awards is the official showcase and recognition platform for the very best of South African blogs. They endeavour to bring South African bloggers to the forefront of people’s attention, both locally and internationally, increasing exposure for South Africa’s great bloggers around the globe.

‘Through the recognition process of current South African Bloggers and the publicity created around the awards, blogs and bloggers, the platform looks to encourage people who are outside the realm of blogging to discover the fantastic world of blogging.’

The South African Blog Awards has evolved since its inception in 2010 through a process of public opinion, blogger opinion and social media experts’ opinions. Entries were open in 16 main categories, including Best Business Blog, Best Environmental Blog, Best Food and Wine Blog and Best Lifestyle Blog.

A personal crusader on a mission to empower through the power of positive thinking, Lindeque has achieved global recognition for his forward-thinking approach and has inspired a nation. Recognised as one of the Mail and Guardian’s Top 200 Young South African’s as well as a Primedia LeadSA Hero, and one of the GQ’s Men of the year for 2019, South Africa’s Good Things Guy is just thankful for the continued support of the readers. ‘I am so incredibly humbled and thankful for the awards – to be named South Africa’s Blog of the Year again is just mind-blowing,’ he said.

The platform has become one of the top good news sites in South Africa and has grown from a simple idea to share a few good stories on Facebook to a full team that brings good news to South Africans every day.
