Charleston Thug Life has seen many changes within 2014. Some of the changes were great, some came with a huge learning curve. What we have realized is that our dedicated readers, guests and haters alike all visit the site for the truth, the news that won’t be on Jive5 or Propaganda and Criminals, and to air out some dirty laundry.
We have realized in the year of 2014 that although a small group of people, we somehow are a target. A target for hate and discontent. We have sort of accepted that, although we aren’t quite sure why. Our thinking is it’s our name “Charleston Thug Life”, our seemingly endless posts to crime in the Charleston area (and showcasing those involved) and the attitude that no one is above the law. We learned [if not already known] that the NAACP hates CTL because they have their own racist agenda and we exploit that. We learned that Methamphetamine is rampant and Police in the area need to crack down on it. We learned that some Police organizations in the area bent the law if not downright break the law. We learned that murder happens in North Charleston, and hearing the news of a shooting doesn’t shock anyone any longer. Jive5 news application doesn’t even push a notification alert for such any longer. At some point, the news outlets will understand that reporting this selective crime further glorify’s the ‘thug shooting thug’ persona and the thought they would be deemed a hero by their community. We call them as we see them and make sure the following words are associated with such. Piece of shit; Thug (and not in the 2Pac, movie style thug-life), Murderer, Rapist, Thief and many more.
Where in the world?
We learned that incorporating an engine to display multiple languages has worked out pretty decently for us. We have readers in 2014 from 168 countries. We had 2.7 million unique visitors from the United States with the U.K and Canada following a close second and third. We had two unique visitors from Ethiopia, yes you heard it, ETHIOPIA! That’s impressive.
Who was involved?
Although this type of 2014 roundup is a first for us, we want to give a line to the following people for being the most interactive on our website during the 2014 year. Di Ba, Andy, Bob White, and Curt Lee. Again, we appreciate your involvement and interaction into CTL (although we didn’t quite look into how you were interactive, outside of a total comment count).
2015, what’s planned?
The Charleston Thug Life group, in all it’s learning this year, is focused on getting more authors signed up and writing for the site. Currently, they are about 5 consistent authors and many that provide information on the side. 2015 is still brand new, but we plan to further our technology grip, expand (still in discussions), and become something a little different than we are now. We plan to speak then truth, publish what’s not and reach more people (as if 168 countries wasn’t enough) than ever before.
Thanks to everyone for making 2014 a successful year. We will continue to be a news leader in the Charleston area and publish information frequently. Stay tuned Charleston, it’s likely to be a good year.
