As an 18-year-old, blogging for an underground hip-hop music website was my entrance as a professional into the digital world. Optimized content, quick publishing, and correctly using links was pertinent for SEO during the golden age of hip-hop blogging.
In 2013, The Masked Gorilla was acquired by Complex Media. During the acquisition the “authors” tab of the website was removed, which, unfortunately, also removed my collection of published posts. In the transparent letter to its readers, my name can be found amongst the others who helped during the site’s independent days. Although my posts are in the internet’s abyss, The Masked Gorilla lives on and my work can be legitimized by Roger Gengo, founder of The Masked Gorilla. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or found on Twitter @maskedgorilla.
