You Go, David Mack

Star Wars writer David Mack has the perfect response to fans who think diversity in SF/Fantasy is either disgusting, or not important, or just intruding on their safe little world where a single group of people (the group they just happen to belong to) gets to arrange things to their liking.

I now intend to seek out and read every single one of Mack’s books. Lose one reader, gain one reader. Actually, since this went viral (and I’m happy to help it continue going viral) I bet he gains many, many more readers. That’s justice.

In fact, Star Wars and its very real commitment to diversity is one reason why I’m on Team Trek when it comes to the age old Trek vs. Star Wars fan debate. Star Wars doesn’t try nearly as hard as Trek always has. I can show my daughter Star Wars and she gets one Princess who gets to hold a blaster…occasionally. When she’s not busy being a damsel.

I can show her Star Trek: Voyager and give her Janeway and B’elanna geeking out over science hardcore. I can give her Deanna Troi, who learns to balance her compassion with her strength until she becomes a true force to be reckoned with. (6th Season Troi. Best Troi). I can give her Uhura, who was ground breaking in so many ways, and continues to hold her own in the series reboot. I know that she’s not stuck feeling the pain I felt as a child, where I would watch show after show after show and not find one person like me (female) who did one thing worthwhile.

I appreciate every writer, game maker, or show writer who understands these issues and makes an effort to be inclusive. They are the heroes in the front lines of a battle designed to turn all of us into better human beings.

No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
