about me

Hey there

I'm Kelvin Muriuki, a blogger, web designer and clinical nutritionist based in Nairobi, Kenya.


Journey Bytes started as a tech blog and has primarily remained that way over the course of its existence. I typically write on a wide range of tech topics as they all share the quality of being drawn in one way or another from my experiences.


This blog has a partner YouTube channel which features a small selection of tutorials posted here in a video format. The channel began as a labour love as editing videos has always been an old hobby of mine. A new video is posted at the end of every month.

Web Design

I offer WordPress & Static web design services including support & maintenance and other services. If you’re in need of a blog or a site for your business or organisation, I’d be happy to help you bring that vision to life as you look into building a web presence.

My Story

The Journey Begins

I have always been fascinated by computers ever since I got hold of one when I was around 12 years. Schooling really got in the way of me discovering that marvellous machine but nonetheless every chance I got a break, I was most certainly glued to one antique CRT screen that survives to this day. Soon enough, it became my hobby and it’s all I did.

The Blogger Years

In 2010 I started my very first blog on Blogger however it soon died due to what I may term as prohibitive data costs. However, as luck would have it, 4 years down the line I found myself in college with access to free fast internet.

Soon enough I started two blogs and my current YouTube channel. Journey Bytes was one of the two housed on Blogger and served primarily as my “tech blog” while the other was a personal blog on WordPress reserved for my musings.

The later took precedence for the most part until 2016 when I was finishing college. This opened the much needed time that allowed me to focus on this blog and its YouTube channel. In the years that followed, I slowly grew my audience and started other blogs to cater for content which would have appeared misplaced here.

The Journey Continues...

As all of this was transpiring, I learnt a great deal on web content development/SEO but it wasn’t until I ventured into the open source WordPress CMS that I ultimately self-taught myself about web design, development and hosting.

As a result, by the end of 2019 I had redesigned and migrated all my sites onto the platform, and with that began my web design services.
