In this list about the 10 most active tech blogs in Ghana, we’ll be using content creation (opinion pieces), consistency in reporting current news, as well as social media engagement as well as global presence (using Alexa and Similarweb) to rank and place them.
Ghana’s tech scene is not as active and bustling with news and startup stories like that of America or China. For this reason, it can be quite difficult to run a tech-themed blog in Ghana. That notwithstanding, however, a number of tech blogs have popped up over the years. Quite a number have maintained consistency over the years, with some doing well to periodically produce relevant content that would interest industry observers and aficionados.

10 Most active tech blogs in Ghana
JBKlutse.com (FB: 139K+)
The nation’s most authoritative technology themed blog naturally takes the lead in the most informative and active tech blogs in Ghana list. It isn’t placed number one simply because the writer compiling this list is an editor for JBKlutse.com. The amount of credible content its writers churn out on a daily basis; under a wide range of topics, is testament to the fact that this blog is very much aware of what a technology website should stand for in 21st Century Ghana.
JBKlutse.com started in May 2015, with its focus being on tech, exclusively. Over time, it has evolved to include lifestyle into its theme; while still maintaining technology as the primary focus.
