The voting for this year’s best bloggers comes to an on Wednesday (1st May), several weeks after opening to the public.
This is just the second year that bloggers are coming together to recognize their best.
This year, the main sponsor of the event is Samsung. Others are Safaricom, Orange, N-Soko, Db Agency, Nokia, and Phillips.
There are 15 categories touching on Business, Sports, Travel, Photography, Fashion, Food, Technology and Politics.
However, the most anticipated category is the Kenyan blog of the year. It is under this category that the blog Megaprojects.co.ke, formerly Thikaroadblog.net, has been nominated.
The blog was previously all about the construction of Thika Superhighway. It was launched immediately work started, and for many months offered the best coverage on the progress of the road. Throughout the construction period, the blogger was able to acquire exclusive pictures, even from tunnels not open to the public.
When the road was completed, the blog changed its name from the restrictive thikaroadblog.net, to a more open megaprojects.co.ke.
Now, it’s extensively covering at least 7 other projects among them: Langata Road, Tatu City, the Nairobi bypasses, Lake Turkana Wind Power Project, Ngong Wind Power Station, and Nairobi Urban Transport Improvement Project (NUTRIP) – the one that involves building an elevated road from Nyayo Stadium to Westlands.
If you’re one of those who love following stories on mega road constructions, there’s only one place you can find them, megaprojects.co.ke.
You can vote for the blog on the bloggers association website bloggers.or.ke/voting/ , on category 15.
Voting closes on Wednesday.
