Blogging is slowly becoming a Kenyan voice where bloggers express their thoughts and opinions freely across the internet. Topics range from News, Business, Tourism, Art, Fashion, Hobbies etc. However, it is difficult to trace a blog to add to your RSS reader or bookmark it in your browser. The aim of this Online Blog Contest is to compile blogs by giving you a brief description of the blog content (in the writer’s words) and put them in a poll where the winners will be chosen by you!
