Clay Aiken News Network

Clay Aiken News Network………..What ?? Another Clay Aiken site??

Today, I wanted to let you know a bit about CANN.

CANN was started for one reason and one reason only; to report positive news about Clay Aiken in a way that respects him and his career.

The site was born out of a conversation about what fans can do to support Clay. Many ideas were floated around, but after some consideration, the idea of CANN was born.

There are three of us who work together to produce CANN. We have a wonderful lady who understands the technology side of the internet. We have another who is artistic and enjoys working with pictures, banners, videos and blends. The third member of the team researches information and tries to write it in an easy manner. All three people are trying to learn as we go. We all want to be proficient in all aspects of the site so we can help each other when necessary.

And just an aside….. None of us have ever met. We are internet friends who found each other and it seems to be working well.

We want feed-back from the readers. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know. We want the site to be up-to-date and interesting to the readers.

What can the fans of Clay Aiken do to show support?? I think we all want to help. Here are a few suggestions. Maybe you agree or maybe you have better ideas that you will share.

1. Read and comment on as many blogs as possible. Google keeps track of hits and comments. The more hit and comments, the higher the blog will be placed on the Google page. That’s good as it helps bury some of the “junk”.
2. Try to vote on some of the polls that are out there. I know that is something that fans argue about all the time, but many people see these polls and look to see the placement of the names.
3. Remember that when you post on a public board, anyone can read it and report it to anyone else.
4. And finally, let’s be kind to each other. We are ALL here because we are fans of Clay Aiken. That’s what is important.

Our goal is to update each day, even when Clay is on vacation. Please let us know what you think by going to the About tab at the top of the blog.  There is a place to submit information there and all suggestions are appreciated.

  9. This site is up-to-date with a nice mix of media from pictures to video to news. Your writer is excellent and seems to have a way to find the latest news out there which is important in order to become a go-to site for news.

    Here’s suggestion–an easy access email for breaking news. Then if anyone out there happens to hear something and it is not on your site yet they can let you know so you can get it. I know you do a tremendous amount of research and spend a lot of time on this site. Congratulations on a site well done!

    • There is a form on the “About” page for submitting news, but maybe that is too hidden. I’ll have to see about putting something on the main page that people can see easily. We would also like to post clay-related fan news like BAF approved fund-raising initiatives and the like. Just let us know!
