Thank You for Voting for TECH-ISH.COM at the #BAKEAwards

This is to say "Ahsante!" for everyone who voted.

The 2016 blog awards gala organised by the Bloggers Association of Kenya went down yesterday at the Radisson Blu Hotel. I know I had posted on Facebook that it was to go down on 7th May. It was postponed last week to yesternight.

This is not a post to tell you every detail of what happened. I don’t know everything that happened. But people won and walked away with awesome prices: Samsung and Huawei phones, Safaricom airtime, Samsung VRs.

I was nominated by you faithful readers under the category “Best Technology Blog“! Imagine! I started this in 2014 as a pastime activity. I think I’m getting the hang of it nowadays. And I’m thankful for all the people who spent their time (and bundles) to vote for this site.

I got 828 votes! Meaning 827 people somewhere voted for me! And that is really huge for me. Thank you. I didn’t expect that.

This is how people voted:

The winner, TECHWEEZ.COM, are really BIG! I’m happy for them. And I am honoured to have been going against a behemoth like them. Next year wataona, sindio?

I am yet to clear my BSc. Informatics course and that’s why you people can’t enjoy consistent posting. But next year we’ll win, ama?

Expect much more in the coming weeks. And if you haven’t already, please subscribe to the weekly newsletter. Just ask the subscribers. They love it!

By the way I have the Remix Mini Android computer! A review is coming soon. What do you want to know?

Again, thank you for everyone who voted!

I’m sincerely grateful for your encouragement.
