For you in the blogosphere in Kenya, you now have added motivation to keep your blog active. Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) announces The BAKE Blog Awards 2012 seeking " to reward exceptional bloggers and to promote content creation in Kenya" . It will also hope to reward bloggers who have posted 'consistently, have great and useful content and are creative and innovative'.
Submissions were opened from 15th March (today) in 14 categories and close on 29th March. Public voting for the blogs will be opened from 10th April. There will be an Award Gala Dinner on 28th April at a venue to be announced.
For those who don't know what BAKE is , it was formed last year to promote development of local content through the various topics/categories in ranging from the following 14 ; technology, business, photography, creative writing, food, agriculture, politics, general, corporate and sports(where you can vote for yours truly...). There are also regular meet-ups for BAKE members to meet fellow bloggers face-to-face every other month.
This is a welcome effort after the KenyaUnlimited-sponsored Kenya's Bloggers Webring die a slow death. It sought to award pioneering Kenyan bloggers who were quite few back in the day. Now's the numbers have grown and still growing by the day, with some becoming fully-fledged websites and others major social media sites.
