As the year is coming to an end in a few hours time, let me thank you all my followers, my sources and my friends for being with me through out the year.
Without you I could not be recognized as the Blogger of the Year 2013 by the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA).
Let me thank the team of judges and my fellow journalists in Malawi who voted for me to be the best blogger. I felt honoured because it was the first time in the history of Malawi for a woman journalist to be awarded this lifetime achievement.
There are excellent bloggers whom I felt deserved the award, but I was humbled to receive the award.
To the American Embassy especially the Public Affairs Department, thank you for supporting the media in Malawi.
Let me also thank management and staff of Joy Radio FM for their understanding and support at times when the radio station had been targeted by Government and some institutions because of my blog.
It could not be easy for me if nobody was giving me advice and assistance.
