Anniversary Redux

Thanks for all the great comments on the 3rd anniversary post.

I’d also like to salute Kenyan Pundit, an inspiration to taking blogging mainstream, on her 4th anniversary (also the first blogger I met).

I’d also like to salute site sponsor Mama Mikes on their
new blog - hopefully that will spur more local companies to take up corporate blogging.

I’d also like to thank other financial bloggers who help share the burden of disseminating and discussing financial information as it occurs here – and these include Cold tusker, Fintrade Capital, Kenya Capital Investment Group, Nairobist, Odegle Nyang (who’s able to mix in political angles), Pesa Tu, Riba Capital, Aly Khan, Ka-Investor and Tannznia Common Cents to name a few.

Thank you for all the people who ay that they have been inspired to start blogging

You said, you said
- More AGM’s: absolutely! In fact anyone who goes to an AGM is welcome to submit a report here
- Monetization; absolutely, always on the look out for more sponsors. But this site will remain free. Even the WSJ and New York Times have realized that the free content is the way to go
- Background: white/ black does not matter. But I’ m shocked that there are people having trouble reading the white screen.
- Job postings: will continue. They have been useful to some, but not to others
- M I hear you on your points.
- More writing on economics and inflation local development, other African countries, entrepreneurship - Yes
- Politics? No, I’d rather not, there’s enough elsewhere
- Partnerships with other bloggers? Women perspectives? I’d appreciate AGM reports, and any other posts of note for republishing. It’s amazing who know more about economics than you do and where you can learn more from unexpected sources. E.g. talking to Binyavanga Wainaina in Arusha I was amazed by his views on the work ethics and entreprenual potential of the Chinese companies and Eritrean nationals. He should write more on economic issues along with literature!

Any other suggestions, e-mail is on the about page

I'm honored too and still inspired.

It's time you moved out of blogger and get a dot.com address. Adverts, adverts, adverts....get more of them.

I was late to the initial bash, so I'll give my felicitations here.

Bankelele.. I admire your blog immensely it has been an inspiration to many people to start investing and blogging too. It s a shame when you read some website that are meant to be major players for kenyans on the net and all you see is tribal hatred and chauvinism. It really pains that we end up with such... talk to them or try not to have links to such websites from your blog...
