kenyaimagine relaunched: kenyaimagine 101

We have been very busy over the last couple of months working on changes on kenya imagine. The new site is now up and ready for you.

Apart from regular articles from wananchi like you, there are several new features. These include:
  1. Separate Magazines with great articles written by you: Politics, Economics, Money (personal finance), Technology and Science, Culture, and Society. Please continue submitting articles, and if you haven't already go ahead and do so. We have something for everyone!
  2. Art Gallery-- We would like to develop this into a fully fledged online art gallery where artists can display their paintings, drawings, etc.
  3. Patrick Gathara-- in-house cartoonist.
  4. Kwangu-- this is your space to network and create relationships with other kI users.
    • Personal Blogs/Diaries that are not edited. Create your own! The best blog will be featured everyday on the homepage increasing your readership.
    • Groups-These will be created by you, and you can join any existing ones that you please. A group can be private or public.
    • Traveler-- a diary with reviews on places in Kenya and around the world.
    • Classifieds: This section will also be user-generated. Are you offering services? Know of a job opening? Register with us and share the information with our readers.
    • What we are reading: This is the editors' del.icio.us page.
    • Papers and Documents: You can upload resumes, long papers and pdfs here to share with others
Once again, thanks to everyone for visiting us-- for articles, and comments.

Karibu. Please drop me a line if you have any questions. nekessa@kenyaimagine.com
