2016 Year Review

2016 has been quite a year for everyone.
I graduated from Cooperative University with a Diploma in Public Relations and I feel like it’s the only course I needed to do regardless Journalism being my passion.

I celebrated my first year blog’s anniversary on 10th July 2016, having 52 posts and 4,440 views and 1,662 visitors. It’s not been easy to cope up with my blog and other things and to get people to view. Alot of people ignore my blog’s link but I keep on pushing. For those who’ve been real since day one, I appreciate the love and support. Come 2017 I’ll be posting regularly and having great content as well.

In the fashion industry at large, Evelyn Njambi  managed to make it to the top five in the contest for Miss World, she’s put Kenya on the world map and we’re totally proud of her.

Socially, Kenyans have suffered from drought and floods, building collapsing because of weak foundation. This is mainly because of the huge gap between the rich and the poor. The poor have been exploited by the rich who construct houses with weak foundations and once the building collapses, they’re nowhere to be found.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has been robbed and our rights are no longer upheld. Billions are stolen day in day out and no action is ever taken. The rich are getting richer and the poor dominate in poverty. It’s so sad how these things happen and nobody cares to make a move or the right turn.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has no say in a lot of happenings in the country but all we do is pray for a better nation and a better 2017.

Politically, Kenyans have been scattered all over trying to figure out who’s the best leader. In the political world, there’s no good leader, in one way or the other, they’ll still mess up. But it’s good to compare and contrast. That however, doesn’t give you a good leader either, it just shows you who’s less evil than the other.
But Kenyans never listen anyway.  They’ll complain of bad leadership but when it comes to voting, they’ll not cast a vote to determine their leaders.

Kenyans are easily influenced by different political ideologies and don’t take time to understand them but rather start rioting and fighting each other. We’re better than that. We should be united and live in peace, love and harmony. Let’s not allow the greed of political leaders to affect our togetherness. Next year go out there and cast your honest vote and determine your leaders. DO NOT complain of bad leadership if you’re not planning to cast your vote.

2016 hasn’t been an easy journey for many but it has come to an end. What do you want to do better than what you did in 2016?
How many lives do you want to transform in 2017?

It’s the festive season, who have you shared with the little or much you have?

Have you made someone smile?

Have you made someone feel loved?

Have you made someone feel appreciated and worth living life?

Well maybe you haven’t, but next year transform lives and be a better you than who you were this year.

As from me, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2017.

SPANK

Parents should look for better ways to discipline their children.

TOTO SMILE.

Spanking teaches children that violence is the solution to problems. It also teaches children that it is okay to use physical violence to control other people and situations. Spanking teaches kids that it is okay to hit the people you love. Spanking teaches them nothing that will be useful or helpful in their adult lives or that will help them to communicate with other people.

What’s your take?

15 Lessons I’ve Learned about Writing So Far – Guest Post by Yecheilyah Ysrayl…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

I’ve been writing for eighteen years now and publishing books for ten. Over the years I have learned so much. Sometimes it can be overwhelming as you’ll begin to feel as if you are always two steps behind. That’s how I’ve felt lately. There’s so much to learn and to understand that I often feel I’ll never know enough. Then I realized that’s the whole point. The person who stops learning is an empty person.

I present to you 15 things I’ve learned so far in my journeys. It was difficult to downsize to a 15-item list but I managed it. The top five things are the last five at the bottom. It will seem that some of these things should be further down the line. That’s because the most important lessons I’ve learned are not about just writing alone but also how I’ve changed or grown as a person…

Finding Your Inner Strength

simple Ula

Life is pretty demanding. We all have responsibilities we have to fulfill, risks we have to navigate, mistakes we have to get past. The key to coming out better on the other side is inner-strength, but it’s not exactly something that most of us are taught to cultivate. But it’s inside all of us, we just have to learn how to find it and how to rely on it. For everyone, the source of inner-strength might be something different, but here are a few ways you might be able to identify it.

10 Things You Need to Teach Your Children At an Early Age. 

Makaitah Rogue

One thing that really riles me up to bat shit crazy levels is child abuse. The world can be big huge ball of fecal matter and monsters but can we leave children the hell alone? Okay, I am ranting aren’t I? My apologies, I get so emotional about child abuse and today’s blog is about protecting our children from sexual abuse. I am now a parent and these things drive me to be a vicious mama bear because no-one wants any harm to befall their children. Children are precious, mostly vulnerable and as parents we need to be diligent about protecting them. The crazy thing is children are abused by the people we love and trust the most. Close relatives, friends and what not. So we need to be extra careful and watchful. I am going to list a number of things for us parents to go on that extra…
