Why You Should Be Visiting Tumblr Daily… After This Site, Of Course

TUMBLRWhile Twitter and Facebook continue to garner most of the attention when social media sites are talked about, there is a much smaller gem out there that I have found myself gravitating to more and more over the last couple of months: Tumblr.

If you are a member of a fandom, such as Olitz, WestAllen, Captain Swan, or Ichabbie, then you already know Tumblr is the place to be online. However, if you aren’t a member of a fandom, or don’t even know what the hell a fandom is, you’ll find that Tumblr still has a lot to offer via it’s various communities.

Rihanna Sells Magazines… A lot of Them

Rihanna Magazine Sales

If you’re a print magazine whose sales have been suffering, and let’s face it, that’s pretty much everyone, there is an answer to all your woes: put Rihanna on your cover.

According to cold hard facts, Rihanna sales magazines… a lot of them. The 27-year old pop beauty has reportedly graced the cover of magazines nineteen times within the last year, with each of those magazines showing significant gains in digital and print sales.

With Rihanna on its covers, magazines like Vogue, Ebony, Cosmopolitan and Elle have seen anywhere from an 0.8% jump in sales, to as high as a 7% jump in sales. And while that may not seem all that impressive, for an industry that has been plagued by declining sales for almost a decade, it is an absolute boom.
