South Africa’s leading Good News website and your source for all good things has just been announced as South Africa’s Blog of the Year for 2017.


The SA 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 peoples attention, both locally and internationally, increasing exposure for South Africa’s great bloggers around the globe.

Through the recognition process of current SA 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 SA Blog Awards has evolved since its inception in 2010 through a process of public opinion, blogger opinion and social media expert’s opinion.

Entries were open in 16 main categories including Best Business Blog, Best Environmental Blog, Best Food and Wine Blog and Best Lifestyle Blog.

GoodThingsGuy won the award for the Best Lifestyle Blog and took the top spot as South Africa’s Blog of the Year for 2017.

Brent Lindeque, the founder of GoodThingsGuy, maintains that all he wants to do is change the national conversation and give South Africans a balance to news in our country.

A personal crusader on a mission to empower through the power of positive thinking, Brent 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, South Africa’s Good Things Guy is just thankful for the continues support of the readers.

“I am so incredibly humbled and thankful for both the awards, and to be named South Africa’s Blog of the Year is just mind-blowing.

The platform has become one of the leading good news sites in South Africa & has grown from a simple idea to share a few good stories on Facebook to a full team that bring good news to South Africans everyday.

I have to give a massive shout out to all our readers who regularly tune in and catch up with the good things. You make us what we are today and this award is actually yours for all the support you give us.”

This is GoodThingsGuy’s second award, after being selected in a global list of the most interesting websites for 2017.

The platform is only 2 years old and is on a mission to change what the world pays attention to. The team behind GoodThingsGuy believe that there is good news all around us and over 1 million readers a month agree with them.
