Ich danke Ihnen, Deutschland!

For some reason, I kept getting a lot views from Germany.

Aus irgendeinem Grund hielt ich immer eine Menge Ansichten aus Deutschland.

Views by Germany

I don’t know why that happened.

Ich weiß nicht, warum das passiert ist.

I thank Germans for viewing my blog. (I don’t speak German. I’m using Google Translator.)

7 Things I Learned from My Three Year Old Blog

May 16, 2014

As of this month, The DJ Stone Crazy Spot is three years old.

These are seven things I learned from blogging on WordPress.com.

1. You don’t have to write 1500 word blogs. I really don’t know how that started. Yet, some of my more popular blogs definitely did not have 1500 words. Some had even less than 300 words. Some blogs contained a few words and a kick-ass meme I found on Facebook.

2. Booty pics attract more traffic than the written word. During the blogs first few months, Google sent more traffic my way because of booty pics. As the blogs main focus was music and laptop DJing, booty pics still brought the most traffic. To this day, it still does. Instead of reading about why a song sucks, many viewers prefer looking for big booty MILFs or big ass white girls. Currently, it’s Miley Cyrus pussy shots and Angela Basset’s booty.

3. Calling someone out in your blog does more psychological damage than you realize. Sometimes, after my blogs aims something nasty at someone, I  receive epic comments taking personal shots at me and my DJ skills. One coward decided to send me an e-mail taking potshots at me. After unfriending me on Facebook, another person posted my blog about her on Facebook, as she called me a loser DJ.

Why all this overreacting? The blog struck a raw nerve bordering on truth. If it wasn’t true, why write epic comments and aim nasty shots at me and DJ skills? In my lifetime, guilty folks are the only ones I know who behave this way.

4. You’re more likely to get pimp-slapped by a 300 pound transvestite versus getting sued for using copyrighted photos. I’m not condoning using copyrighted material. Still, as far as getting sued for doing it? That’s highly unlikely. First, you might receive a request to either take the photo down or give the photographer credit. Second, the photographer might tell your web host. Third, if you’re small fry, they know you don’t have any freakin’ money to sue for. For the record, I’m not a lawyer. Despite all this, you still might get sued for using a copyrighted pic. Still, that rarely happens to small fry bloggers.

5. Readers like lists. Yep, the blog experts had it right. Creating list blogs attract traffic. Still make sure it’s a subject folks will want to read. If folks no longer care about Jay-Z’s conflict with his sister-in-law, don’t you still write ten reasons why Jay-Z should have smacked her. If it’s a subject folks don’t care about, don’t go writing a list about it.

6. Current trends attracts plenty traffic. When Justin Bieber was arrested, I dug up memes making fun of his arrest. The blog attracted plenty of attention. When some idiots used Martin Luther King Jr, in twerking flyers, that blog not only gained a lot attention, a more popular website linked to it. The reason I always post pics of Miley Cyrus is because I know folks will come looking for them, especially if it’s something she did recently.

7. Making fun of white people attracts traffic. (Controversy attracts traffic.) I once noticed people searching my blogs wanting to know what music to play for white people. I knew the subject was controversial. That’s why I wrote it. I wrote it over a year ago. To this day, that blog still attracts traffic.

After three years on this blog, that’s what I learned.

Does This Pic Proves Google Hires Racists?

January 20, 2014

Here I am on this fine MLK Day looking at the stats on my blog.  I study the search word section and what do I see?   Three rows down, I see “happy nigger day!” Now, why in the fuck would Google send these fuckers my way.  As you can see, Google sent them here TWICE. Or is there more to this?  Is this some sneaky shit a Google employee is trying to send me?  I don’t know.  I don’t mind people knocking me for running a music, night life and booty blog. Yet, with me being black, I don’t find “happy nigger day” funny.

On the real tip, I’m not blogging this for sympathy.  I’m blogging to this showing how stupid some people are.

Seven Important Reasons a DJ Should Blog

December 8, 2013

Some people recommend DJs having their own website, advice I agree with.  Done right, a website proves to be very beneficial.  Yet, I shall give seven important reasons why a DJ must start a blog.

1.     Blogs expose your services to new people:  On a blog, a DJ can advertise their services.  Many free blog sites don’t allow this.  So, the DJ may want to invest money in a self-hosted sited, a site where you yourself control the content.  Free blog sites are known to play the censorship game, which can lead to a blog being deleted.

2.    The DJ keeps a loyal fan base: When folks see themselves in a DJ’s blogs, the more likely they will keep coming back to the DJ’s night.

3.    Fans know more about you:  When people see the real you, they may respect you even more.  Of course, if they see you’re a jerk and don’t appreciate them, they may refuse returning to your nights.

4.    Opportunity to expose the music you really like:  Some people realize a DJ may play certain music as a compromise.  They may play a shitty song because the crowd likes it.  Yet, some folks are dying to know the music the DJ really likes.  They want to know what the DJ plays on their car stereo or what music they upload on their smart phones. This goes back to people learning more about you, the third benefit I mentioned.

5.    Opportunity to expose your mixes:  I’m a little shaky on this one.  If you want to expose your mixes, a blog will help you.  Yet, here’s the thing; many web visitors own a short attention span. Because of that, many folks may not be willing to listen to a whole mix.

6.    Unlike some websites, blogs are easier to post:  Websites you have to learn codes just to post a paragraph or two.  Not so with blogs.

7.    Venues respect you more. (At least, the smart ones do.):  Most venues welcome any publicity.  Because I can easily post it on Facebook, I usually don’t post upcoming gigs on my blog.  Yet, I always post details of how the event went on my blog.  If it was good, that’s good publicity for the venue.

There are other benefits.  Yet, because I didn’t experience them personally, I avoided posting them.  I have heard of people receiving free things because of blogs.  Companies give free products for bloggers to review. Plus I have heard of people making money from ads placed on blogs.  Like I mentioned before, I have never experienced that.  Still, it doesn’t mean that won’t work for other DJs.

So, there you have it, seven reasons for having a DJ blog. Digital DJ Tips lists more reasons. Hopefully, this inspires other DJs.

Today marks the two year anniversary of The DJ Stone Crazy Spot.  Two years ago on this very day, I started the blog you are now reading.

On that note, I decided to run a top ten of my most popular blogs.  Surprisingly, all of them weren’t booty blogs.  Yes, despite folks coming to my blog looking for booty pics, some readers set aside booty-searching time and read my music blogs too.  So, here we go.   The top blogs.

10. The “I’m a Twat” List for DJs: A funny list created by DJ Wizzy.

9. The Top Ten Most Overrated White Musicians: I had to do it.

8. Rockin’ An Eighties Hair Metal Party: I DJed 80s rock all night. This blog also contains photos of that night.

7. School of Hard Knocks: Photos of women dressed as Catholic school girls.

6. Skrillex Versus Daft Punk: A silly-assed meme I found on Facebook.

5. Visiting for the Pics: This is when I first realized some folks weren’t visiting my blog for the beautiful words.

4. Videotaping Dancing Cuties: Not only do you see booty pics, you also witness dancing cuties in a video.

3. Bad Santa and the Angry Elves: Photos of a band mixing punk rock with Christmas music.

2. The Top Ten Dirtiest and Nastiest Rap Songs Ever: A list that would make Satan blush.

1. Friends Cheer Me Up with Booty Pics Friends cheer me up with booty pics after my complaining about the evils of fake booty.

Two years down and more blogging fun to come.

Three Easy Steps On How To Fuck Up Your Blog

March 4, 2013

Here’s my confession:  I fucked up my blog.  Fucked it up big time.  Fucked it up so bad, I am now restructuring it.

How did I fuck up my blog?  Keep reading and you’ll see why.  Hopefully, other bloggers won’t do the same thing to their blog.

  1. Not having a definite goal: Why write a blog?  What’s the motivation?  Why do I want to tell the whole damned internet my business?  My main motivation was giving exposure to my writing skills.  For this blog, no way in hell did I expect to boost my DJ career.  Yet, I moved away from the writing goal. Because I noticed the booty pic traffic I kept receiving, I focused more on the photos.  No, not all photos contained a nice round derriere.   Yet, I kept focusing more on pics versus my writing, taking me away from the goal of exposing my writings.why blog
  2. Not sticking to the theme: This was supposed to be a DJ blog.  Yet, I kept including things that definitely weren’t DJ related.  What is a blog about hot air balloons doing on a DJ blog?  Still, I did just that, posted a blog about hot air balloons.  Don’t go looking for it because I’m deleting the damned thing.Stick to the fuckin' theme!
  3. Not solving readers’ problems or catering to their needs: Many people search the internet to solve problems.  Writing journal blogs went out with MySpace. In the past, readers told me they read my blog because few blogs exist about the DJ life.  They were looking up to me for tips on their own DJ career, which surprised the hell out of me. The only thing making my blog a legit DJ blog is my vinyl music blogs.  Not only do I tell the reader what I play, I also give the reader a short synopsis of the album.Nobody gives a shit about your online journal

What do I do now?  Like I mentioned before, I’m restructuring. Some blogs are being deleted.   I’m  keeping with the booty pics because they serve a demand.  Because folks have found my blog because of it, I’m sticking with nightlife posts too. Apparently, they serve a need too.  Of course, because this is a DJ blog, I shall stick with blogging about the DJ life and music too.

Lesbane: Villain from Porno Batman

February 12, 2013

I know many readers aren’t finding my blog because of my excellent writing skills.  Nope, many land on my blog searching for booty.

booty search

 

No problem with that, I guess.  Still, some of these people can’t spell.  Observe what I found in the search section.

Perverts Can't Spell

The plural for booty is “booties”.   Also, what the hell is a “lesbane”.   Only people I hear saying “lesbane” are rednecks trying to say “lesbian”.  When I asked the question on Facebook, a friend said Lesbane could be the villain from a porno-Batman movie.

Batman-XXX-A-Porn-Parody

Oh well, life goes on.
