Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to divorce after 5 years of marriage(49 years with 3 divorces)

From TMZ
       
     Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced after 5 years of marriage. Katie's attorney, Jonathan Wolfe released a statement saying, "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family."
Wolfe adds, "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."
It's unclear if divorce papers have been filed with the court. Tom and Katie have one child together, Suri, who is 6-years-old.

Nicole Kidman, Katie Holmes and Mimi Rogers were all 33 when their marriages to Cruise ended
 Tom Cruise who is currently 49 has had three divorces and there is a weird coincidence to be noted in all three divorces. All of of Cruise's three marriages broke up when wife at the time was 33. Cruise's first wife was Mimi Rogers, who was 31 when she wed 25-year-old Cruise in May 1987 and 33 when they broke up in 1990.
Cruise then married Nicole Kidman, 23, in December of 1990, and then separated in 2001, when Kidman was 33.
Holmes, 28, and Cruise wed in 2006, seven months after daughter Suri was born. And when word came Friday that Holmes had filed for divorce, those with a sense of Cruise history noted that Holmes was also 33.

Top 7 Ways You Can Create Awareness and Get Huge Followership To Your Blog


All new and even existing bloggers want to get more and more attention to their blogs. 'If you are just getting started with blogging', you need this most because nobody will know your blog exists until you start to take some steps towards creating some level of publicity and awareness around the blog.


So, once you complete the design and start making posts, do not think you are done and do not expect traffic to start coming in automatically. You have to keep creating awareness and keep working on getting huge followership to your blog. Even the existing and growing bloggers continue to create awareness and publicity. So, it is an ongoing activity that stops the day you stop running your blog.

If you stop promoting your blog to get more attention, attention would start to leave it too and you can start to see traffic drop. I'm writing this from experience. Now, I will be sharing with you some actions to turn into habit if you would like to get more and more attention to your blog.

1. Write Good Content

Everybody knows this but it is just not enough to know, act. Act now and start writing good posts. There are many reasons your posts might not be good; some of which are grammatical errorsspelling mistakes andpoor articulation.

You can improve on all these by taking English lessons and reading more. Spelling mistakes can be corrected to a large extent if you type your articles in MS Word first before copying to your online post editor. You can also check out, Yomi Obadina's guest post on "4 Ways To Avoid Common Typos/Grammatical Errors In A Blog Post".

2Offer RSS Subscription

Many first time visitors will come to your blog, get the information they need and never come back. RSS subscription is a means to convert them on their first visit to become regular readers. Hence, make sure you make your RSS subscriptiion box, links or icons very visible on your blog.

There are many tricks you can use in making RSS subscribers visit your blog. Put a video in your post and see many of them come to your site to view it. If you are using Feedburner to publish your feeds, enable social sharing buttons in your feeds. This way, your subscribers can share your posts to social networks via their email, browser or rss reader. This really creates more social media presence for your blog.

3. Guest Posting

If you don't know about guest posting, then you are probably new to blogging. Some blogs allow you to write guest posts and publish on their website. If you write well and you are able to get your post published on sites with high PR and large readership, you are on your way to getting massive traffic. This is possible because you are allowed to add at least one link back to your blog in your byline and you are sure to get quality backlinks to your blog. RSS subscription also can come in handy here because if you offer it, you can convert some of this traffic to regular readers of your blog.

Making a guest post on Ogbongeblog gives you a PR 3 backlink. Aside from this, you have the chance to showcase your blog in your byline to9018 RSS subscribersthousands of Facebook fans and twitter followers. These are the figures at the time of publishing this post and they keep increasing by the day. Now you see how guest posts can help your blog?

4. Review Websites and Interview The Big Bloggers

This method is known as link baiting. You can write a review about a website that offers a unique service and let them know about it. They would normally want their users to see it that they are getting credit for what they are doing and might feature your post on their website or simply link to it. You can check out examples of websites reviews here.

You can also interview the big bloggers in your niche and and they should normally talk about this on their blog. Everyone likes been treated like they are one of the best at what they do.

5. Social Networking 

Social networks are great to get awareness and promote your blog. Making use of TwitterFacebookGoogle+StumbleUponDiggPinterestand more like that will surely increase your site popularity. Create a Facebook page for your blog, have twitter handle and register on as many dofollow social bookmarking sites you can find in your niche.

There is one experience I had on social media like two months ago that brought an entertainment blog that I manage into so much light. Somehow I was able to get photos from the birthday party of a popular artist and I published them. The artist in question saw it and retweeted to around 500,000 followers. The blog traffic was never the same afterwards.

6. Blog Commenting

I'm not just telling you to start commenting to get backlinks here. No, this is more than that. There is a trick you must know in blog commenting- be the first to comment. This way the blogger will notice you and might even check out your blog link and visit it. I have tried this and it worked like it's programmed. Some readers that will comment immediately after you may even check your blog out.

7. Paid Advertisement

The first six ways above are just the important ones you can start with and all of them are free to implement. If you want to go a step further, you can pay for Google Adwords and Facebook ads to publicize your new blog. You can check out "basics of Facebook advertising" if you are interested in using Facebook ads to promote your blog.


I hope you find this quite informative.

NIGERIANS WANT GOLDIE OUT OF THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE?

She was respected and admired by many as an artiste and much more for her crazy style and fashion sense. It took the nation by surprise when she was unveiled as one of Nigeria’s representatives in the all new Big Brother Africa Stargame. Goldie went into the house as part of the celebrity pack but we are not sure if she has maintained the said status, as many Nigerians are now calling for her eviction.


                                            

According to recent reports coming from followers and fans of the BBA Stargame, Goldie seems to be mis-representing Nigerian women and Nigerians in general, they say she has lost all self esteem and basically has no sense of belonging.

First she was said to have been contemplating suicide as another housemate, Prezo who she is said to have fallen in love with, was not paying her the desired attention. Now that he has, she is said to have dedicated her entire stay in the house to Prezo, being at his beck and call and seeing to his every need. She most recently saved him from eviction to the annoyance of many.

Out of the house, fans no longer see her as a superstar even her celebrity colleagues can’t seem to defend her actions. Inshort Goldie is annoying!!!

PHCN high tension wire electrocute 7 people in Ibadan

Tragedy struck at the Apata market in Ibadan yesterday when seven persons, including a pregnant woman and a nursing mother, were instantly killed when a live high tension power cable of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) suddenly cut off and fell on traders at the ever busy market.


The incident, which occurred at about 7am, affected mostly vegetables vendors as they were busy transacting their business at the popular Agbekoja section of the market.
Eyewitness identified the pregnant woman as Tawa and that her mother who was also standing by was a victim of the dawn electrocution.

Good Samaritans rescued the infant unhurt from the back of his electrocuted mother who passed on immediately after the shock.
Many other traders at the spot sustained injuries and were rushed to nearby hospitals for medical attention.
