Some Information About SocioLingo Africa

A bit about me

Hi, I’m Maggie and I’m a sociolinguist with a PhD in education.  I’ve worked in a number of African countries and in the UK.

This site has grown out of my own interest and experience in Africa and I hope you find something here that interests you.  I actively seek positive stories because I want to keep a positive focus for the blog. I also like to focus on subjects that are not covered by others. My own interests are very broad and not all the posts in this blog reflect my own opinion.

I’m proud to be hosted by DreamHost, an ethical company owned by its workers, and I am really grateful for the set-up help from Ninja Blog Set Up


I use a huge range of sources in this blog including information from loads of newsletters and RSS feeds. I usually include short snippets from websites and newsletters in order to bring the attention of my readers to useful information. I always try and state explicitly the source of information. If you find information from your site on this blog and you object to the use of snippets from your website, please contact me and I will remove the item from the blog and stop using your website as a source.


I would like to thank  everyone who sends me information to include on the blog, or who corrects any mistake.

Thank you too for all the comments you send in. I read and approve each comment. I only check comments for content and I don’t correct spelling and grammar although comments that include vulgar language or libelous content are rejected. I use spam controls and posts from spambots are rejected. If you think your comment has been unfairly rejected please contact me.

  3. Thanks for letting me know Tania. I’ve done all the checks and nothing is coming up on my antivirus. To be doubly sure I’ve added a specific wordpress antivirus plugin which has a good rep. That also gave everything a clear bill of health. If you could clear your cache and try and reload the page I would be grateful. If you are still getting an alert then I will see what I can do further.
