KenyaUnlimited is a curated feed of the latest blog posts written by selected Kenyan bloggers around the world. It showcases the latest posts and podcasts from over 100 interesting Kenyan bloggers. Our slogan is “freedom to seek, receive or impart information or ideas” which we draw from Article 33 (1) (a) of The Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
What are you up to?
We have three main goals
- provide a central space where you can keep up to date with a curated list of exciting Kenyan blogs
- make it easier for Kenyan bloggers to find, connect and interact with each other
- build an inclusive community of bloggers that will support and encourage Kenyans who would like to start blogging
Are you stealing the author’s content?
No. That is completely unethical. As a service that exists to support bloggers we want to encourage them to blog more. We do not want to discourage bloggers. What KenyaUnlimited does is bring together the latest posts from a group of exciting writers into one location. Each imported post is displayed in KenyaUnlimited with a title, featured image and a very short excerpt. When a visitor finds an article that he or she likes, they simply click on the post and they’ll be taken directly to the original source’s website.
All readers are redirected right back to the original post, ensuring that the original authors and sources get the credit and traffic that they deserve.
If your content is aggregated here and you do not want it featured on this website please let us know.
How does being included in KenyaUnlimited help bloggers?
The trouble with living in the Information Age is paradoxical, we are constantly bombarded with so much information that it becomes challenging to make any productive use of it. Like drinking water from a powerful hose pipe we quickly get overwhelmed. It is challenging to keep track of all the interesting conversations you would like to follow. Aggregators like KenyaUnlimited provide a filter to help you manage the flow of your information hose pipe.
By curating and consolidating content from the most exciting Kenyan blogs we make it easier for new readers to find you and for your current readers to stay up to date with you. We showcase your blog to a different audience which helps grow your readership. Readers interested in another blog on our aggregator are likely to find your blog as they browse here. For your current readers we provide a platform where they can check quickly if your blog (and other blogs they are interested in) have been updated.

How does KenyaUnlimited work?
KenyaUnlimited is an aggregator of content delivered via RSS. RSS, which stands for Rich Site Summary, is a web content format, created in 1997, that is used to distribute and publish content online. RSS is a great way for internet users to easily track their favorite online content. Every site we list on this website publishes and distributes an RSS feed.
What do you look for in the blogs you syndicate?
We seek to build an inclusive community of exciting and interesting bloggers. We welcome all bloggers who feel kinship with Kenyans no matter where they are in the world and no matter what citizenship they hold. We believe that no one should suffer discrimination on the basis of race, colour, ethnicity, gender, age, language, sexual orientation, religion, political affilication or other opinion, national, social or geographical origin, disability, property, birth or other status as established by human rights standards. We are interested in people writing about their unique experience in their unique voice
How do you decide who to remove?
While we reserve the right to curate the aggregator. There are three broad reasons why we would decline to add a blog to the aggregator or remove a blog from the aggregator.
- We welcome debate and dissent, but personal attacks (on authors, other users or any individual), persistent trolling and mindless abuse will not be tolerated. The key to maintaining the KenyaUnlimited website as an inviting space is to focus on intelligent discussion of topics. For the sake of robust debate, we will distinguish between constructive, focused argument and smear tactics.
- We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate-speech, or contributions that could be interpreted as such. We recognise the difference between criticising a particular government, organisation, community or belief and attacking people on the basis of their race, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or age.
- We will remove any blogs that are obviously commercial or otherwise spam-like. Our aim is that this site should provide a space for people to interact with our content and each other, and we actively discourage commercial entities passing themselves off as individuals, in order to post advertising material or links. This may also apply to people or organisations who frequently post propaganda or external links without adding substantively to the quality of the discussion. Several other services exist to amplify the voices of our important business community.
