Street Knowledge Blog (2012 in review)

Since I have rededicated myself to blogging and to turn this into the monster it has the potential to be, I decided to let some of you guys see exactly what type of numbers we put up here at Street Knowledge. Expect a bunch of changes and new stuff this whole year!! Info below.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 4,100,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 75 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Lil Wayne to Write Blog for ESPN

via Woooha

Lil Wayne has just signed on with ESPN to write a blog series about his thoughts on the latest and greatest in sports news. Wayne states “This is the first blog I’m doing for ESPN. I don’t watch nothing but sports—no movies, no news, no television shows—so I thought this would be fun.” Who knew Lil Wayne was such a sports fan, we always thought his only interests were tattoos in strange places and drinking “the lean” out of paper cups.

An excerpt from his latest blog posting:
“Because I watch so much sports, I like to think I know what’s gonna happen. But with the NFL this year, some things have shocked me, some things have been just terrible. Like the Bengals. Damn. I kind of had a feeling things were gonna be bad, but I didn’t want them to be this bad. And oh my God the Chargers.

They won on Monday, but it still wasn’t the Chargers. Then again, I think LaDainian is going to figure out how to work his way back through this injury. LaDainian is tough. I think that last game will be a big motivation boost for him. I’ve talked to some people who’ve had similar injuries with the toe, and they tell me that it’s the mental thing you have to get over first. The pain never goes away, so you gotta accept that and just fight your way through it. I think once he gets used to it you’re gonna see he’s the same LaDainian. I’m not worried about him. He’s gonna be fine.”

You can check out the entire post at the ESPN website. And of course readers are already commenting as to if this is really Weezy or if he is pulling a Kanye and having some one ghost blog for him.

The online revolution continues to take root with young girls leading the charge according to a recent report released by The Pew Internet & American Life Project.  Overall the teen demographic is responsible for driving the change that is taking place, with 64% of teens creating their own content on the net.  Teenage girls between the ages of 12 to 17 are uploading photos and blogging at a faster pace than boys of the same age.  89% of all teens interact with one another by commenting on those photos posted.  The report also focused on a small pocket of what they call “super-communicators” and this group, which represents 28% the teenage population is also mainly female. These are teens who rely on various methods for communications, including landline telephones, cell phones, texting, email, instant messaging and social network sites.
