How is anyone ever going to
take us seriously if we remain as
divided as we are now? We have
an association [Bloggers
Association of Kenya] now but
how many of us are members?
The truth of the matter is that
we don’t trust each other, we
don’t support each other. We
only come together when one of
us is attacked or when
something, that affects most of
us, happens. In other words we
react when we should be acting.
We are our own worst enemies.
Most ad agencies & corporates
do not understand or value us.
We have ourselves to blame for
this but we can change it. Life is
about perception.
We need to rid ourselves of the
notion that the media is against
us just because some journalists
do not like us and therefore
attack us in their columns. Also,
just because a few journalists
have plagiarized our work does
not mean that they are all bad or
There are those that don’t want
us to succeed. Leave them be, it
is impossible to please
everyone. It wouldn’t hurt
however, if you threw mental
rocks at them.
Our unity should be for the
greater good and not just for
better bargaining power with
corporates and ad agencies for
advertising monies.
Let’s support each other by
commenting on each other’ s
blogs, sharing posts by others in
our networks, reposting other
bloggers’ work. Let’s grow

    A noble cause! I wish you all the best, and hope your efforts succeed in bringing forth the great potential that I know a nation like Kenya has. Perhaps more posts in the native language will be a good idea, as they will obviously be understood by a wider audience in Kenya? Just a suggestion 🙂 Peace.

      Thank you. Infact we are trying to bring up writers who write in native languages. Seems not many do .
