I can’t believe it!!! We have reached the 50TH BLOG POST MARK!!!
I would like to say:
Asanteni sana! Muchismos gracias! Thank you very much!
to all my readers and followers of this blog for the past almost two years…
Truth be told, I started this blog on a whim and I really did not think that it would amount to anything much. This geek had to find a way to vent all her thoughts and stuff thus Kerry’s Blog was born.
I am sure you are all wondering where the name Kerry comes from. Kerry is Kerubo in full which is my middle name. I am from the Kisii tribe that hails from Western Kenya….OK. I will spare you the Geography/History lesson. The nickname kinda stuck on me (along with a couple of others, well that’s a whole blog post all-together) in primary school and I decided to revive it her coz I am sure that it’s a common name in other parts of the world… This is where I stop rambling….
Today, I am happy that I have been able to put myself out there, share my musings+ personal stuff from this part of the world. I like sharing things that I have learnt especially if it will empower someone else. Also, truthfully, some of the things that I post here serve as my reminders. I am not perfect. As a millennial I am still trying to figure out my career path in development and so far, it has been on bumpy ride. Some of the posts especially under A few of my favourite things serve as notes-to-self. I get scared every time, I write graduate school or scholarship application or approach someone for some career advice or even when I send out a LinkedIn invite and I won’t even begin to talk about networking.
Over time , I have come to realize that some things are a “necessary evil”. In other words:
If you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat
I am glad that blogging has opened me up to fellow bloggers who are simply amazing and absolutely brilliant (see for yourself).They have challenged me from afar to step up in terms of content and design. As I always say iron sharpens iron.
As I am looking forward to reaching the 100th mark:
- I hope to convert this blog into a fully-fledged website by the end of 2013 (latest). So, I am definitely stepping up my coding, photography and design skills. I will be sure to ask for help coz I ain’t Lois Lane (as depicted by Terri Hatcher)
- I would like to share more about Kenya and our issues especially those that relate to the youth and women. On that note: if you are a Kenyan Blogger and would like to connect, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- I hope that I will be hosting guest bloggers in the near future, so watch this space.
So, dear readers I look forward to hearing (reading) and interacting with you. Let me know if there’s anything that you would like to see featured.
