It was a pretty normal Wednesday night. There were fans chatting on all the Clay Aiken boards and sharing stories of concerts, blogs, pictures and even families. But that all changed in a minute. Suddenly, at 10:09pm, the message boards were decorated with bright red, 48 pt. letters, spelling out only two words:
With that announcement, hundreds of fans dropped everything and made their way to the Official Clay Aiken Fan Club Site. Was the word of the night, label, CD, tour, Broadway, TV??? No, the word of the night was …….BORED!!
Most of Clay’s fans were touched that he shared a bit of his down-time with them and that he wanted them to know he was thinking of them. Their written comments in response to his blog were, in most cases, supportive and fun to read.
Clay did state that he is still recuperating from his jaw surgery and the uncomfortable feeling is still there.
But there was a challenge in the blog too. The Bubel/Aiken Foundation is looking for a new name; something that in just a few words makes a strong statement. This name change has been discussed for about a year and the board of directors feels the name change is important to the foundation. If you are creative, maybe your idea will be chosen for the new name.
In the last 14 months, Clay Aiken has blogged on his fan club a total of 15 times. Sometimes they are short and just a quick “hi” and sometimes they tell his fans about important events in his career and even his personal life.
Although there are many fans who wish he would blog more, most still get excited when those two words are flashed on the boards. HE BLOGGED brings lots of smile and lots of happiness.
