TOP BLOGGERS FETED AT BAKE AWARDS
Women impressed at this year’s BAKE Awards by winning in eight categories during the awarding ceremony held over the weekend. The awards are organized by the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE).
With hundreds of guests in attendance the event saw creative writing blog, Magunga.com, voted as the best blog in the country. Other winners include owaahh.com, biznews.co.ke, healthkenya.co.ke, potentash.com, techweez.com, niaje.com and mutuamatheka.co.ke.
Speaking at the event, BAKE Chairman Kennedy Kachwanya said “We are so happy to see the increase in representation of women among nominees and winners. This year, we are happy that out of the 23 categories, at least eight awards went to ladies, which is a clear indication that women are also venturing and taking blogging seriously.”
In 2012, the representation was 68 percent men versus 32 percent women but last year it improved to 41 percent women versus 59 percent male.
This year, over 10,000 blogs were submitted to the judging panel for the 23 categories.Views: 1242
