Nine months, Miezi Tisa!

08 Jun

Some nine  months ago, I was born into this blogging world or as Shekyn would call it I lost my blogirnity. Nine is my lucky number don’t ask me how or why because I cannot really quite explain it. So today I will mention all those who have made this journey of mundane experiences “From these mine eyes, ears, mouth, fingers and keyboard!!!” worth the while…

My very first comment was from Maina from his blog I gather that he loves gadgets, I remember checking out the Nokia C3 review there, though I never got to buy it. Then there was Shekyn she is one of my mentors into this world, you’ll find I have a blog mentor list not blog roll because learning has been continous since In came here *you are getting off track mackel, multitasking is bad for you* what was I saying, oh yes, I borrowed a lot from her, her stories were from the heart, they have that humane factor in them, you can feel them… Mwau Iv was the third to visit and leave a comment here, we did some volunteering back then at the Red Cross with him.

Henry the guy I was with before I encountered rohypnol has been a regular here. Chiry one of the people I usually harassed for feedback until they got used to it, she has been active in giving feedback good or bad. Then there is Mrs. Mwiti I actually found her blog through zuqka that nation pullout. She has been in the list of my mentors too, I remember asking if you type and post straight away or write your thoughts down and then type them later and I got many guidelines into blogging from her amazing self.

FiestyCat used to write but I do not know why she doesn’t do so any more… MjUsher when I read the name I thought Michael Jackson’s spirit had possessed Usher *That’s lame, it refuses to come out the way I want it to* Mj I hope you don’t search for me for poking fun at you hehe. There is Cuppatea,  Grindenko, Nyawizzy, SuzyKenya whom I thank for making time to pass by and grow this blog, feedback is important, just ask around.

Raul is all about Diani, he knows the place in and out, on air and under water. Here is one of the daring videos capturing Diani life, that seemed like a very adrenalin packed flight if you love daring escapades you should go there and try it and when you want to go relax in a villa somewhere that would be your guy. Sambumu seems like the guy you would go to whenever you wanted to buy a house or any other piece of real estate. Gitts from his blog comes across as a free spirited soul, the guy you wouldn’t mind sharing a drink with on a slow Sunday afternoon. Merveilleux  I see you.

Kash, he is the guy we had that dream of retire at 21 with,this is one guy that we have been through some really bad times and good times together, but the best part is that our optimism never dies, I could write a book about him, maybe when the business sense is about right I will do it… Shikomsa has been another encouraging blogger I met in this sphere, a free spirit as I see her and wouldn’t mind her date taking the bone by the hands :-).

Sunshine the name itself is bright, need I say more? Possumkeys I like to read it as post some keys, this guy can play a keyboard and piano really well, I will search for him for a few lessons here and there. Joliea another mentor I borrowed a lot from, Her consistency is amazing, how do you manage posts on a daily basis? Raymondchepkwony is one of the prolific bloggers I know, this guy has that zing in him and in every post he does. Moha, is one of my guest writers here. Hey you Wakarima, Moriaso and Nickae I see you 🙂

Nyambura another amazing blogger I found in this sphere. OtienoHongo is that guy you rush to when things go hay wire, the guy you seek advice from, the guy you tell your inner thoughts without worrying of them being told to a third party, he just knows they are supposed to be kept just between you two, the guy you drink with until the stories fizzle and you just stare at the space into nothingness; fire gazing. He has been very insightful and maybe one day I will put his story here, one day… Victor is a another regular here, I appreciate you. Marlmarly is a lover of kids, children make her tick, a professed defender of children’s rights, and a lady with a big heart I know. Steve I see you.

SavvyKenya is the one who made me choose WordPress, ‘write first the money will come later’ she said don’t just write because you want advertisers on your blog, do it for love… She is quite well informed and traveled too, whenever you want information about blogging, BAKE platform that is, she is one you can talk to she knows who to refer you to, I also believe she has that techie bug in her… This lady Lostinthot she loses me when she writes, her mind is one big maze that I wouldn’t mind getting lost in. She has a way with words, she elicits those hidden emotions with words plays with your mind until you find yourself lost in her world. She will talk about a pen, a sink or a snail in a thousand words and you will not be bored an inch, you find your self immersed in that captivating world of hers.

I see you

Finally this is to you all anonymous readers, people who are masked but still find the time to pass by even without leaving a comment I see you and appreciate what we have been able create, “From these mine eyes, ears, mouth, fingers and keyboard!!!” I will continue giving.

    Happy Nine Months! You’re so young it hurts!

    I hear you on Otieno Hongo. And Savvy. And Mrs. Mwiti. And all these other bloggers you’ve listed here that am about to go check out. Some I’ve read some I’ve not.

    You’re mostly right about the free spirit.

    Now……. that date ni aje. hehe

      I would not have missed to mention you for anything, I should be the one thanking you for the nudges in the right direction. Glad you now have new materials to dig into 🙂

    Thank you Mackel. It’s been 9 months now. Congrats! Keep on. Am a little alarmed though that most of your posts are listed under ‘comfort zone’. What on earth?!:) You need to get out of that comfort zone sometimes and write posts that are highly opinionated, posts that step on toes – controversial posts. Controversy will bring you traffic….

    • mackel9

      June 10, 2011 at 11:07 am

      Yes it has been nine months; growth! 🙂 Thanks for being part of that growing process. Controversy sells I agree but will I be able to keep up lighting up new fires every now and then? I hardly think I can keep with that, but I will try and come out of the comfort zones and find a new area, any other suggestions? Once again I appreciate you being part of this 🙂

    Happy nine months & thanks. You’re pretty amazing too…I totally get you on Gitts (funny, I had the same beer n great convo mental image), Shiko (I love her mind’s eye), Nickae (he’s been too quiet) Marlmarly (beautiful thoughts), Shekyn’s always full of spunk & In my books, Otieno is Yoda…The rest, i’ll just have to sample. So here’s to many more sessions of fun writing & interactive meetings of great minds. Cheers.

    Congratulations and full steam ahead on the writing. Otieno is a man of wisdom, is confident of who he is and knows how to express it in words. Nyambura creates moods and images with words and has an imaginative way of looking at things. Makes you feel like you are sharing a beer after work with her. Shekyn is sweet and fun and Raymond is missed. Now let me check out the others

    Hi Mackel,

    Good stuff for being nine months old. Blogging is a wonderful world, magical to be quite exact. I find your blog to be very inspiring and unique in a good day.

    Keep the spirit alive, and in the famous words of John Jakes “Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish…” 🙂

    Good day.

    Congratulations! You write beautifully..though i keep hoping you will post frequently 😦 I love reading your blog!

      June 14, 2011 at 9:53 am

      Thank you Marl, Sometimes I see things I want to write about but the words refuse to come out, sometimes my mind is filled with so much imagery, but in words only a paragraph can come out of it… hopefully when I get to learn the art of story telling I will write more often *crossing my fingers* 😉

      • marlmarly

        June 17, 2011 at 11:37 am

        That ONE paragraph is what we want to read….

    🙂 I’ve been a touch distracted by work issues…it’s mad season in our industry…so it takes up all my time & by the time i’m free, i’m too tired to write…but I’ll work on it more consistently

    we all need people we can learn from, people who stick with others when others seem so indifferent.
