KenyanPoet blog gets nominated in the BAKE Awards 2012

The Nominees for the BAKE Awards 2012 are out!!

And we are PRETTY excited.

The list of Kenyan Creative Bloggers out there is the largest after Tech Bloggers, it was therefore a pleasant surprise to learn that this blog, which as been in existence since Oct 2006, had made it to the top 5.

The judging panel was not revealed until they had finished their work and this was for a good reason. We therefore know that no-one felt really generous to buy one of the judges a drink  or kept re-tweeting them for ‘favours’

The awards are meant to encourage those blogging to be more active and pay more attention to their content. The Awards also seek to recruit more bloggers especially in topics which, though important, have not been ventured into. Topics like Health, Real Estate, Environment, Childcare, Education just to name a few have not drawn those in the respective fields into the blogging world to inform and educate the rest on the same.

With only 2 weeks to the Awards gala Night which is set for May 5th, lovers of this blog will have a chance to vote for it here.

Below are the nominees in each category:
