On June 1st 2006 Kenyans everywhere will be celebrating Madaraka Day. Madaraka Day commemorates the day that Kenya attained internal self-rule following an important milestone on the road to independence. To mark this event the Kenyan Blogs Webring (KBW) Admin Team would like to invite KBW bloggers to blog in unison under the banner â€˜Kenyan Bloggers’ Dayâ€™.
We have been inspired by Keguro’s and Black Looks’ and Mshairiâ€™s call to action in respect of the East African Standard raid and International Womenâ€™s day respectively. Additionally, the level of support and interaction shown by our members in response was outstanding and we therefore, recognise the value of collective blogging.
With this in mind we wish to use collective blogging as means of celebrating the nation that unites us as bloggers.
How to Get Involved
On or before June 1st 2006, we are proposing that we all create a post on any or all of the following suggested topics:
- Being Kenyan
- Being a Kenyan blogger
- Being a member of KBW
The post can be a piece of prose â€“ 2 lines, an essay, a poem, a podcast, a photograph, your favourite quote. It is entirely up to you how you chose to celebrate this day.
You donâ€™t have to be Kenyan, just a member of KBW.
