Debunking, deconstructing and demystifying myths about Journalism.

Posted November 4, 2019 from Kenya

Good morning 

 

My last blog post! It clearly did not go well with some of my friends from the Public Relations field. Well, I had no intention of fuelling and igniting the silent rivalry between journalists and PR professionals. No such intention at all.

Journalists are probably the most judged people in Kenya. There are too many misconceptions about what journalism is and who journalists are. In my blog post today, I am not holding brief for journalists, but I have put together my thoughts around some of the myths around this profession which everybody thinks every Tom, Dick and Harry can belong. No, it is not.

See you again next Monday, Inshallah

Dear Maeann,

Thank you for your feedback. All is well on my end. Yes, it is a brutal world for journalists out there. I hope you get to read the post before this one.

Hello Sanguli,

Welcome to World Pulse! Thank your for sharing your powerful blog post. I hope to see more posts from you.

You may like to collaborate and/or commiserate with some of the other journalists within the community, too. I just did a search and came up with: https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/mukoche-khatondi, for instance, who is also in Kenya. There are also many other journalists on the forum, too, outside of Kenya.

Hope you're doing well, and having a great week!

Thank you Karen for your kind words. I have been writing for a while now, then I take little breaks in between. But now as a student, I plan to write more often. Check out for new posts every Monday. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

You're welcome, dear. I plan to put up my blog, too. Did you set this up by yourself? Thanks for the heads up.
