Hello and Happy Black History Month to All! – I like how some of you have been in contact with me since my last e-blast and I hope you and your families are doing well. I have managed to stay Covid19 free up to this point. Unfortunately so many people that i am connected with have died and it’s so so sad. I am truly grateful that all 3 of my kids have had it and did ok. As I say Turners +3 Covid -3.. And that’s-that.. It’s been a rough start to 2021 fore sure- I literally started off the year -New Years Eve @ the Hospital with my mom in an ordeal that lasted a month, as she is better now. Thank GOD!
So let me tell you some Good News —— d r u m r o l l ******** YAHOO PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE ABOUT ME and from that there was a spin-off Article done by The Los Angeles Tribune -who featured me as part of the kick off to Black History Month!! ( the L.A Tribune article is a lil more in depth than Yahoo) … Definitely another milestone!!.
HERE IS THE LINK TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON LOS ANGELES TRIBUNE HERE
So what’s the buzz about- well, I ( me myself and I) cause it’s just me running thangs and I do EVERYTHING- lol, I was able to build a mobile optimized version of my site and at the same time I really dug in and tried to learn some SEO tactics to raise organic search visitors- WELL I’m pleased to say that between those 2 things my traffic is now at 20,000 per month and I expect to reach my 1 year goal of 30,000 unique visitors every month by June. Incidentally with that increase the radio streams also increased by 500 in January to over 6500 streams and 1100 hours of people listening to Cali.FM.. After getting the basic mobile site together I put out a P.R and it ran on the Associated Press HERE… Very busy month January was. -,…
We talked about her new song and what she has going on..etc.
Publicists have been hitting me up but asking for video/zoom interviews. I’m sorry but Hair & Makeup plus all the work, I would have to raise my prices- and because I still am responsible for news publishing daily- I really can’t do live interviews at this point. However, here is what I can do : the service I have currently is a Blog Feature Q&A for $250 that comes with 1 month Free Spins and more.
(ALSO GOOD FOR BUSINESSES – AUTHORS ETC)
So HMU when ready!! I do not offer any other promotions at this time and am NOT taking clients for P.R at this time.
*The only other thing I wanted to mention is I have removed the event section and self submission section from Cali.FM for now as they were not compatible with the mobile site.*
One of the most popular posts of 2020 with 6862 reads on Cali.FM and over 400 social shares.. It was posted oct 7- the stat was pulled end of December.. the IG video had an additional 2000 views. (THIS IS FROM GOOGLE SEARCH ONLY) I actually rank pretty high on Bing and Yahoo and more than a few times have been 1st page on GOOGLE.
And there are 2 other stories that did similar numbers – one of which was my op-ed about L.A’s District Attorney George Gascon.
If you haven’t checked out my JADED: Journalism with a Touch of Shade column- you should- I’m a MESS! And the other is the story of 2 missing boys in Cal City Orrin and Orson West. I ranked on that story very early and I think once stats are said and done that story will surpass the one above. TONS of people have landed on Cali.FM from search looking for that story.. THE BOYS ARE STILL MISSING BY THE WAY …
Alright Enough- I’ll leave you with some selfies 🙂 I’m still in lockdown tho I snuck out in December and I’m leaving for a week over Valentines- so, hope the force be with me and all of us – as we continue to live in a Pandemic. Please Be Safe and I’ll type to you again soon 🙂
