Hello World & Haaaappy Tuesday! 😆
It's a new week here at LCP and as usual, I'm here to give you the run down on last weeks happenings!
I chose the little graphic I threw together last week for #tbt for this post because it was appropriate for my vibe last week! I am now unapologetically going after this thing, and that means switching things up, asking our readers what they want. What interests them, what they want to see more of, & not bei g afaraid to ask them to sign up for our mailing list, and demanding engagement by putting them in it!
So, with that, this weeks #LFTC is #MakeItPOP! I finally tapped into a very important aspect of SEO, tags, and TITLES! I mean, who doesn't know that a bangn' title can go a long way, duuuh, right? But no, there's a real art to creating the perfect title containing the perfect tags, & the perfect swag; as well as how you position the context of the articles as well.. Headings, visuals and additions of audio and video go along way, and last week those key concepts really showed and proved their worth!
Take #AlexTheHolisticPractitioner and her breastfeeding article for example. When I discovered in a phone conversation with her, that she was still breastfeeding her 3 year old daughter....I was very surprised to say the least lol, and I thought it was quite the taboo. So, I requested an article on it after hearing some interesting benefits and facts to breastfeeding....long term lol. Anyway, Alex's article was great as it was; however pulling the "taboo" parts to the top of the post, and giving it a bangn' title along with choosing the most popping visual of her choices, turned a mundane topic into something a lot of people were sharing and engaging about! And I'll tell you this, the numbers on that post were PHENOMENAL. That post was still doing high numbers for a few days to follow...what a breakthrough in theory! lol Congrats Alex, job well done!
Oh, not mentiom, that visual was EVERYTHING! That popping pink background, with that beautiful, mahogany Black woman & her gorgeous, mocha baby, was very eye catching! Unfortunately, this world is driven by sex, and although there was nothing sexually suggestive about that photo, the models nakedness and boldness was the show stopper that grabbed the attention of men & women alike.
Last weeks #MeditationMonday was all about defining your mediation space and practice in your home. It's pretty hard to commit to an undefined routine, so the key is to establish how this time works for you and where the best place is for you to indulge yourself. Check out this article and get defined!
Last weeks installment of #DeactivatingEskridge is all about separation anxiety and fearing the loss of connection with the people you've worked so hard to learn to love, and moving past the acceptance of those people...not exactly being your family members anymore. It's a hard pill to swallow. As the #GenuineGemini heals and tries to figure it all out, she sheds some interesting perspective on using your connection with your in-laws (or ex in-laws) to help you heal.
Melvin Jefferson, aka #JeffersonRalphael has officially joined #TheNewLCP, and has come aboard with a vengeance!!! There wasn't a real need to expound too heavily in Jefferson's intro, other than to let LCP know what he'll be bringing to the table. LCP got an exclusive interview with him earlier this year, so I just linked that amazing article in. Be sure to check his intro, then click that link to the full exclusive interview! 😎
There's definitely not much more needed to say about the infamous breastfeeding article, other than you need to go check it out! BTW, that's #AlexTheHolisticPractitioner and her 3 year old ninny-baby!!! ;)
#AshleySankey did an amazing job at recapping the happenings of The 2015 Magic City Classic weekend! Ashley is our music contributor, and she giged around town that weekend, so I asked her to recap it for us. Well..lets just say she went above and beyond for LCP and delivered so much more! Check out all the #BirminghamFunktionz in this awesome recap!
In case you missed last week's #LFTC check it out now, and see what a glimpse into the future was all about!
All in all, last week was all about making it pop! In all that you do, no matter what you do...ALWAYS MAKE IT POP!
