I can definitely see why the Karrin Stephans post went viral. I even read the book back in the day. Celebrity linked posts are always attractive online for some reason. I rarely write celebrity posts but when I do its like instant views.
The Black owned bookstore post is so important. I also remember you wrote an article about the dangers of facebook for Black owned websites. I was looking for it but couldn't find it. Can you share it here? less

When one of my videos get attention it funnels right back to my site and it increases the likes on my fan page. It's a win win. I'll be trying out other techniques soon. I've seen some other pages trying it too.

Articles which deal with celebrity and controversy will generally out perform articles without those two components. I content I did on Karrin Stephans (of superhead fame) http://aalbc.com/authors/karrine_steffans.htm video, pages views, book sales were all great I I video I posted on google video (before they shut down the service) got over 300K views. Her book to this day is the best selling book of all time on my website.Truth be told, Superhead content is not something I'm intersted in focusing upon, but Karrine's content subsidize the promotion of a ton of more literary authors and obviously a ton of people where intersted in what she had to say. On the non-celebrity-scandal side, my article about the close of Black owned bookstores got a lot of attention: http://aalbc.com/blog/index.php/2014/03/31/54-black-owned-bookstores-remain-america/ less

Happy Monday bloggers! What are you blogging plans for the week?
Words to my teacher peers, had an interesting discussion with my students about weight, diet and exercise. Please encourage your students to ask questions and even if it is personal remember they are relying on you for honest answers. Had a young lady ask me why my belly was so big. This was NOT in a disrespectful manner but a honest question. She even said she was not being disrespectful, so remember to keep it real and not personal. The discussion centered on physical metabolism and exercise. I do not get a lot of exercise and this grew into a great discussion on aging and exercise. Be patient and not personal.
