Ken, what happens is as a small market, there is what we call ‘coding on an empty stomach’. A famous saying among the Kenyan tech circles coined by one Idd Salim. What this means is that many start blogging as a way of sustenance, because the bar is quite low for blogging, get pageviews, irrespective of the source and you can take home some revenues.
As opposed to some markets where blogging is being taken up as an investment with established industry leaders, we have a huge mix. There is a mix in every market, but we don’t have extremely successful blogs like Mashable, Engadget, ArsTechnica, TechCrunch here. These demand quality. We at Techweez are trying what we can to achieve that. Can’t say we are doing the best that can be done but we are trying. Oh, and please give us feedback on what you think we should improve.
We will get there, it’s a task as the things that determine the outcome are mainly website visitors, and as long as we get swayed by clickbait we are still at one position.
