Varsity students trained on blogging

03 February 2015, 16:25 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Dedan Kimathi University of Technology (DKUT) students were trained on proper use of social media platforms.

The training which was conducted by officials from Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) covered entrepreneurship, ethics, writing skills and readership.

Njeri Wangari, a BAKE official, asked the students to observe laws and ethics while blogging or communicating on any social site.

“It is laudable that blogging has kept the fire burning and the field has grown in leaps and bounds over time,” said Njeri.

She told the students to however be cautious while posting on sites reasoning that employers are currently considering use of social media as part of interview.

She expressed concerns that university students were using the platforms to criticize their respective schools’ administrations, table their complaints and condemn fellow students.

“Use social media sites responsibly because it might haunt you in future at job market. Several people have been turned away by employers because of their past conduct in Twitter, Facebook, Blogs and other platforms,” Njeri advised.

She further advised the students to use blogs to generate income and start by establishing specific areas of interest.

“Identify your area of interest for instance, education, health, agriculture, technology, cooking among other areas,” she added.

Blogging, Njeri said, has come a long way over time, from the years when it was done predominantly for fun, to current times when it can, and has become a full career for some.

She said similar event will be organized in other universities across the country.
