JamesMurua.com is moving hosting companies.
It’s been a great time here at JamesMurua.com reporting on the African literary scene giving news and opinions for the last three years. For all those who have been reading and sharing links I am extremely grateful; this blog couldn’t have gotten this far without your support.
If you are a keen follower of our blog, you will notice that there have been challenges with its hosting in the last few weeks. Sometimes the site goes down for days meaning the content is inaccessible to you the reader. On my part as blog admin, there are times when I have been unable to access the site back end to update when something new happens. What this means is that I have been unable to update the blog as often I would like to.
There is a reason for all this. It seems like the site has been inundated with visitors; a lot more than I had anticipated when I signed on for a hosting plan which was pretty basic in 2014. There is a need to therefore get a new home for the site which will ensure that you the reader can access it. It will also allow the blog to be updated more often, as we are famous for, in the future.
We are now moving from my old hosting company to a brand spanking new home that will allow us to serve you the reader better and more efficiently.
There are very many stories that are still pending to upload to if you have done something that you think we should have covered we shall be getting to you. Hopefully by the end of the month we should have moved into our new home and you shall start regularly getting you African literary fix.
P.S. A new blog is coming at the end of the month on the back of a road trip that I am currently undertaking from Nairobi to Durban. You can follow my travels on Twitter and Instagram on my account @jamesmurua or the hashtag #NairobiTraveller. Look out for my travel blog to make its official debut on September 1st, 2016.
