Everyone could use a good laugh now and then. Whether on a happy day or on one that could use some brightening up, laughter is always welcome. Delivering laughter through piping hot news, “The Neighborhood Talk” is a popular urban blog that has captured the attention of millions in the US and worldwide.
Created by CEO Kyle Anfernee Simpson, The Neighborhood Talk was founded out of necessity, when the creative entrepreneur was at a low point. “I lost my job at one of the biggest urban blogs in the world, and I knew that I would never get the amount of freedom I had there anywhere else. So, I took the tools and skills I developed while working for my previous employer and resolved to turn his frustration into motivation and by creating an avenue where i could write without restriction. So I bet on myself and started my own blog, THE NEIGHBORHOOD TALK” Kyle shares.
Determined to share the space with as many enthusiastic free-thinkers as he can, Kyle recruited writers who echoed his desire for artistic freedom, college students and millennials. He hired writers not yet out of the university and putting them right where they wanted to be. He allowed them to explore their potential and grow as writer and individuals.
Through The Neighborhood Talk, the young minds write and publish their own articles and cover major red carpet events with top celebrities. This helped them develop their network, boost their creativity and inspires them to inject humor into the news they deliver on sports, celebrities, health, entertainment and politics.
In the different fields of news that the urban blog provides information in, there is one thing that the user reviews always point out as the feather tickling their funny bone – the witty and sarcastic captions. Explaining how these came to be, Simpson merely says, “we try to add humor in everything we do, and that’s something that our followers have constantly pointed out.”
Not just attracting attention from existing followers, The Neighborhood Talk’s unique brand of humor has invited new users into its platform, as well. The blog has grown to staggering numbers since 2018 when it was founded, with over 34 million impressions per week and over a million weekly profile visits. These jaw-dropping numbers include visits from high profile personalities and celebrated industry leaders. Popular among celebrities, The Neighborhood Talk became the talk of the town.
It wasn’t long before CEO Kyle Simpson began receiving calls for features on The Real on Fox, Wendy Williams, E! News, and Dish Nation. The publication has also had its segment on Good Morning Atlanta on Fox. Seemingly a favorite of the network, Kyle recently appeared on Fox Soul’s new talk show “The Mix”.
With the success of THE NEIGHBORHOOD TALK, Kyle Anfernee Simpson hopes to see his blog become a household name half a decade from now. At that time, the ingenious CEO plans on making The Neighborhood Talk a multimedia platform employed as an international avenue to celebrate wins in the community and dive headfirst into enlightening social issue discussions.
