A time has come when Kenyan Blogs are the way we get information regarding our day to day lives. I know some people who don’t watch tv or read newspapers but have the latest information at their fingertips. They get this information from Kenyan Blogs.
Blogging in Kenya has come a long way, many people have embraced and acknowledged blogs. We have a blogger Awards too. These days I see several blogs invited to media events by big corporations because they represent a time.
There are over several thousand Kenyan blogs at the moment and by the end of this year, hundreds more will be created. So how do you know the best blogs in Kenya? Well, we went out of our way and assessed the best Kenyan blogs for you.
How We Chose these Kenyan Blogs
Having a blog is one thing but having a quality blog in Kenya that people actually read is another. Before bloggers used to go to Alexa.com and run down a query of the top blogs in Kenya and made a list. Well, this list is different, we will use Alexa yes but that is not the main way for us to list interesting blogs in Kenya.
Here is how we made our choice of blogs in Kenya:
- The quality of the blog– We looked at the design, blog structure and ease of finding information.
- Social Media Influence – Well, we live in the age of influencers and a blogger is one influential person in our society today.
- SimilarWeb presence… It is more credible than Alexa
- Subject matter and quality of content – Well, you can be doing well but spreading propaganda, lies and not helping Kenya in any way.
Having done so, we realized it will be biased to come up with a list that says Top Kenyan Blogs, so we changed the title to read; Best Kenyan Blogs: A List of Interesting Blogs in Kenya You Should Read.
