  4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
  5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: and a link to the BlogDay web site at

Since I am pressed for time I have decided to do this post a couple of days early since I will not be anywhere near an internet connection over the weekend, with a few links to some blogs I like to read, they may not be actually new but to me they are. So here goes.

Wanjiku Unlimited

Written by Shiko-Msa I find this a very informative blog that tackles a varied number of topics from serious issues like the environment, Politics, Science and also light and entertaining issues like reality shows. The author is not afraid to give her opinions and doesn’t shove them down the readers throats even when they disagree.

Diary of a Mad Campus Girl

Written by Savvy this is written from the unique perspective of a student in one of the kenyan universities, its been a long while since I was in college and I remember those days nostaligically as some of the best years of my life. She has tackled several aspects of campus life including the living arangements of campus, going out adventures and even a very interesting post on how students have set up DIY networks in the student hostels. There are also some serious posts addressing sexual harrasment and student riots in campus. This Blog definately takes me back in time and reminds me of my own ‘wild’ days as a student which would make her not as ‘mad’ as the title suggests.

Rafiki Kenya

This is a relatively new blog for me and I haven’t been following it for very long but I definately find it an informative place with a varied number of topics not just business, I found this cheesy post quite interesting, I will definately keep an eye on it.

Our Kid

An interesting sounding blog title but well written with short posts on varied interesting topics, I only just recently discovered it, was much amused by this tribute to Cynthia the pretty girl on EA Idols who just couldn’t sing but didn’t we all just love her!

Crystal Balls

This is not a new blog but its only quire recently that I started reading it at first I was put off by the lengthy posts but as I grew familiar with her writting style I am now able to follow if I can keep up with her prolific writting. This blog has got to be one of the most frequently updated in the Kenyan Blogosphere the minute you think you are up to date you log in and find 3 more long posts to read. That said the posts are definately worth the time as they tackle CB’s daily experiences in Dar covering all manner of topics from single motherhood, relationships and work. She also has some fiction writting which is quite captivating.

Doing this post makes me realise that I haven’t ventured very far from my blogroll to discover new bloggers perhaps this excercise will help me identiffy many more blogs to add to my reading lists.

To all my readers happy Blog Day!
