My Most Popular Post :Welcome to The Kenya Blog Contest

This was the poll center for some of the best 2010 blogs in Kenya. Twitter played a great role in spreading the word and votes streamed in as well as feedback. I think I had organised well and managed to conduct a nice poll without hitches or headaches. Hope I will say the same about #My5Links some time later.. Read more…

My 5 Links | 2011 Kenya Blogs

July 18, 2011 9 comments

It has been a year since The Kenya Blog Contest and we have learnt so much for the past year. A blogger has the experience that not all blog posts receive the same reception.

However, here’s a chance to go into the archives and share some of the links that you feel deserve another read. Comment on the lessons learnt and give a small explanation as to why a certain link falls in the respective category.

The aim is to appreciate bloggers and in Kenya and share mini-blog rolls for a broader read. Here are the steps and categories to follow:

Categories (Where you’ll include the blog links to share, giving a small commentary):

  • My Most Popular Post
  • Post that Didn’t Get The Attention It Deserved
  • Post Whose Success Surprised Me
  • My Most Controversial Post
  • Post I Am Most Proud Of
The Guidelines:
  1. Blogger is nominated by other blogger(s)
  2. Blogger publishes their 5 links on their blog and tweets the link with #My5Links
  3. The Blogger nominates five other bloggers to do the same.

Happy Blogging!

On Tuesday, June 28th 2011, Google launched its social networking site Google+. 14 days later, it’s population has exploded to an estimated 10 million users while still in the invites-only testing phase.

It’s dubbed ‘The Facebook Killer’ and I say that’s a good run despite Facebook having an estimated 750 million users today. Google has worked hard to correct it’s mistakes on their past developments such as Orkut, Buzz and Wave. Read more…
