Seventeen to quote BFP about controversy over Rihanna’s role as Barbados Culture & Youth Ambassador.
Today we find that the editors at Seventeen.com have not only linked to our latest Rihanna story, they’ve asked to use content from a number of BFP’s articles for a new major Seventeen Magazine article about the growing controversy over Rihanna’s role as Barbados Culture & Youth Ambassador. (Of course we gave them our permission!)
The internet is an amazing place – especially when a major organisation decides to link to a story on a small blog like Barbados Free Press. We’ve had the hit-meter go wild on a number of occasions when big places like CNN, Fox News, Associated Press, USA Today or the BBC linked to one of our stories. BFP has even been linked to by newspapers as far afield as India Times.
I think our best day ever was last year when we received over 44,000 visitors in a 24 hour period due to a BBC link. The best part of having such a large number of “one shot” visitors is that many stay and look around BFP.
Can’t wait to read the new article at Seventeen Magazine.
