WHO IS KULANINI
Kulanini is a one-woman show. At least for now. My name is Aura Kidero. I am a chemist by degree and content creator by passion. On this platform, I am the writer, photographer, admin, editor, consultant and so much more. I fulfill all roles encompassed in this site. With time, I hope to share my passion with other talented Kenyans through collaborations and partnerships to actualize my Kulanini dream.
Do we do this full time
No. I started Kulanini while still in university. Therefore, I have always balanced it with my studies.
How long have we been doing this
We began in April 2017 and now have over 3 years worth of experience under our belts.
What is the Kulanini Client-Customer base
Being a small company, we are constantly looking for ways to expand and diversify our client base. In our three years, we have created and maintained over 1,000 customer & client accounts. This comprises of restaurants, manufacturers, individuals, cafes, bakeries, hotels, food vendors etc.
What do we USE to shoot & edit
I shoot with my Samsung Galaxy J7 phone. I hope to upgrade very soon to improve the quality of my images. I edit with Lightroom and VSCO then watermark my images with Visual Watermark 6.0.
Who made the website
I did. When I started, I couldn’t afford a web developer so I decided to do it myself. I began by writing on the Wordpress free site (kulanini.wordpress.com) where I learnt all about websites, blogs etc, When I felt confident enough in the blog and my skills, I decided to purchase my own domain (kulanini.org). I did this through Inmotion hosting and continue to host the site with them. I also used Visual Composer web builder to help with the site aesthetics. I would definitely recommend this Inmotion, Wordpress and Visual Composercombination for anyone looking for such services. In addition to this, we have the 'Find Restaurant' feature is by LSCF by Pixolette.
Why do I keep saying ‘We’
In as much as I work alone, I think ‘we’ sounds much better than ‘I’. Besides, I hope to have a team someday so I am projecting.
What makes Kulanini special
The personalization & permanence our organization offers. All our services are tailor-made to suit the needs of our clients/customers. Articles for example are never taken down so clients continue to benefit way after the marketing campaigns are done.
Our customers on the other hand, enjoy raw, un-biased and extremely detailed content (reviews). Take a look here. Their needs are also heard and met. E.g. The Find Restaurant feature was developed based on customer needs.
What has been the most challenging season for Kulanini
I think 2019 was tough because school work got very busy. This made my Kulanini passion suffer quite a bit. During this time, I also fell into the trap of ‘Forgetting my Why’. This meant that instead of enjoying my passion, I was busy trying to benefit from the blog. Moving forward, I am determined to focus on the passion that made me start and let the benefits/rewards follow afterward. Enjoying what I do is second to none.
What has been the most rewarding season for Kulanini
I would say 2018. Kulanini was awarded the 2nd Best Food Blog of the year 2018 by B.A.K.E (Bloggers Association of Kenya). In addition to this, I made contacts with several of my current clients & fellow bloggers. Kulanini got more visibility hence made the most during this time. I thoroughly enjoyed this season and hope I get many such as these in the coming years.
