6.) “Checked SGVN sports blog. Just a couple of rankings and a few posts. Almost all commentary linked to Amat or Aram. Not that long ago each article could have up to 300 comments from fans as far away as the east coast.All school teams were argued about. Crazy fans from Upland, Bonita, The Covina’s, St.Paul, Monrovia,Downey, CO, Rosemead on and on. What happened? Can’t blame 50 cent newspapers because it was online stories. The site was littered with ads. I believe they failed to see the value in their blog and would not invest in the possibilities. After Fred and his once proud baby have been shown the door one thing will always be true. Families and relatives and friends love to read stories and see pictures of the exploits of there young athletes.Put a kids name in a story you are guaranteed hits depending on his family size, put a picture and you can multiply hits exponentially.It’s automatic.”—MVS commenter “Joe Pulitzer”
