Hiatus - Happy Holidays People!

It’s time to take a break people. I’m off to re-discover my natural and E-free life, to travel around and appreciate Kenya, to touch base with real life smileys and emoticons, and last and most important to be with family.

Till then, Happy holidays friends. Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

Dear Shiko-Msa,

My name is John Wilpers. I am the Global Blog Coordinator for GlobalPost, a new international news organization set to launch on Jan. 12 (see

My job is to build a list of blogs that will appear on GlobalPost where we will have approximately 65 correspondents in some 46 countries. We are looking for enlightening, informative posts from bloggers writing (in English) in those countries.

I am pleased to extend an invitation to you to have the most recent post of "Wanjiku-Unlimited" included on the Kenya page of as part of our “Global Blogs” service.

After reviewing thousands of blogs worldwide, we have found "Wanjiku-Unlimited" to be one that is thought provoking and gives readers a true sense of what life is really like in Kenya.

The way it would work if you accept our invitation is that we would use your RSS feed to place your most recent post on your personal page on We would point back to your actual blog for comments and for archives, hopefully driving lots of traffic to your site. Each time you write a new post, it would replace the older one so only one post would appear on

By appearing on Global Post’s exciting new international news website, your words, viewpoints, and pictures would gain worldwide exposure. Your posts would not only appear instantly on but also possibly on the sites of our partners, including the Huffington Post (7.8 million U.S. and 9.7 million global monthly unique visitors) and other news and information websites.

You don’t need to do anything differently. We do request that you consider pointing back to us from your blog (we will send out logos shortly for your consideration).

You should know that we have a few guidelines that we observe here at Global Post:

1) We do not publish racist, sexist, or misogynist comments (unless those comments are the subject of the post).
2) We do not publish obscene language or photos. While we recognize that obscenity can be difficult to define, we know it when we see it and we will let you know if we think you have crossed our line.
3) We do not permit plagiarism. Any work taken from another source must be attributed to that source.
4) We do not publish libelous or slanderous language.
5) We do not tolerate repeated errors of fact or misrepresentations of facts or quotes.
6) We do not publish work inciting violence.

Failure to observe these guidelines would result in the removal of your blog from GlobalPost. We would contact you, of course, to discuss the post in question.

Because we have a broad multicultural audience holding every conceivable political and religious viewpoint, we want to respect their views while also possibly challenging them. We will host controversial work. We will encourage robust debate of the hottest topics. We will not stifle discussion, only abuse of people, belief systems, and laws.

We hope these guidelines are acceptable to you.

I look forward getting your permission to put your RSS feed on our site. Please respond to: Thank you!


John Wilpers

PS If you choose to accept our invitation and would like a photo and a short biography to appear on GlobalPost, please send both to me with your confirmation e-mail or at some time shortly thereafter.

January has reached!

hehe mama
iyo ni direct translation
wacha hiyo

Shiko-Msa said...

Happy new year people! thanks for all the good wishes.

Rafiki e-blush e-blush.

Your excellency direct translation indeed - January imefika.

Mama wacha siasa. I said January, not January 1st! Wait I did not even say January did I? I said till then.

I'm still reeling from 3 weeks of un-utilized brains. I'm approaching blogosphere from other people's blogs at the moment before I get my grey matter back.

Kwani umekuwa UNGA? Unasambaza e-hunger/starvation. Happy NEW OLD YEAR.

Shiko-Msa said...

Lol Taabu. The scarcity? I'm playing hard to get.

Anyway I'll be bouncing back sooner than you can say Unga.

Happy new year.
