The Kenya Blog Contest

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!

Application for contestants will close on: Friday 16th July 2010

The poll will close and the winner announced on: Friday 30th July 2010

There will be one Grand winner and two runners up.

Prices for the above will be announced after voting begins.

The Contest will officially launch on 7/7/2010 at 7PM after the compilation of early applicants and publishing of the same in this blog. Further communication will be relayed on twitter by @eGichomo.

    where do people vote anyway?

  3. July 6, 2010 at 12:53 PM

    Don’t you think it’ll be better if you had categories??? Refer to Nigerian blog awards (google) we all have good blogs but in different categories.

      Thanks for the pointers.. Categories will be set within 24 hours after a survey and depending on the applicants by tomorrow evening. Asante.

      Hey dear, thanks for the feedback and support. Everyone is a winner by virtue of having a blog. The aim of the contest is to display talent and form a directory of great work. The poll will seek to appreciate the public’s favorite. Keep up the good work.

    A welcomed initiative

    Blog ya mtaa, niko!

    Nipo natambulika. I need to revive mine, but in the meantime, I am in!

  15. July 14, 2010 at 4:56 PM

    Good idea!

  16. July 15, 2010 at 5:02 PM

    Great idea! Unfortunately I will not be participating. Quite apart from the fact that I NEVER win anything ( well there was that one time I won – but it for a contest I had never entered) I can’t really find a category to place my randomicity. (Also , I kinda like my anonymity a little too much)

    All the best to the contestants 😀 (and share the prize please!)

    hi, how did you come up with the categories and the nominees? by the way we need more quality content bloggers on Afrigator especially for Kenya, we are lagging behind South Africa and Nigeria .That is disappointing seeing that we are better at language and artistic expression than them!Please join me there
