Have you noticed it? Do you feel it when you sign on a Clay Aiken message board? Do you see the numbers? Well, its back!! The anticipation that something exciting is about to happen is spreading fast as fans are showing their love and support for their favorite singing sensation.
Clay fans have a lot in common; they all love and support Clay in whatever way they can. Some fans enjoy the friendships they have gained throughout the last 6 years and try to visit and chat each day. Other fans work to support Clay’s “National Inclusion Project.” Just think how many fans have participated in “Wrapping For Inclusion,” “Empties4Cash”, eBay auctions and many other worthy projects.
We all enjoy the “clack” and appreciate the fans who share their work with the entire fan base. Then there are the fans that make beautiful montages and blends……what talent!!
Yesterday and today, I watched as many Clay fans participated in a couple of new polls that are on-line. As it was obvious that the fans were making a difference, more people joined in the voting. Some fans have kept voting each day and they should be commended. Others used to vote, but had been taking a break. But the excitement of the last few days brought back many more fans. The voting fan base grew all day and it reminded me of the early days of Clay’s career.
I know that there are fans who think it is not necessary to vote for Clay. They don’t understand the point and look askance at those who work hard at voting. But for many fans, the voting is an important part of the fandom. They wish there were more who would participate. As in any group of people, opinions will differ and how great it is that everyone seems to understand the differences.
If you would like to try your hand at a few polls, the following links could get you started.
TBWE is a huge site. They have a poll that rates the Idol singers. You can cast 5 votes every day.
tweeterwall is another fun poll. Called Worldwide Idol, the site asks you to vote for your favorite Idol. You can vote every 20 minutes. You do not have to have a twitter account and you are not required to open an account at tweeterwall, however some voters suggest that it is a good idea. Give it a try.
It has been so much fun seeing the excitement grow in The ClayNation. It is almost like a new beginning.
