Announcing the Kenyan Blog Awards 2016
Every year for the last four years, we at BAKE have embarked on an annual journey that culminates in the awarding of Kenyan bloggers. This is the journey that sees the presentation of the Kenyan Blog Awards.
It is with pleasure that we announce the launch of the 5th Kenyan Blog Awards. Going by tradition, this also coincides with the official opening of the submission phase. Thereafter judges will decide the best 5 in each category before the public votes for their best in each category. This year, one new category, the Best Religious/Spirituality blog, has been added to bring the number of categories to 19.
In a clear indication of growth in the Kenyan blogging space over the years, we have seen a steady increase in the number of submissions with over 1800 blogs being submitted last year and over 150,000 votes recorded.
Past winners of the Kenyan Blog Awards include: MutuaMatheka (mutuamatheka.co.ke), Silvia Njoki (silvianjoki.com), WambuiWaithaka (wambuiwaithaka.com), Sharon Mundia (thisisess.com), Jackson Biko (bikozulu.co.ke), Sam Wakoba (techmoran.com), Dennis Machio (michezoafrica.com) and Limo Taboi (bankelele.co.ke).
