Clay Aiken News Network – 1 Year Old

Monday, January 11, is the first anniversary of this blog.

CANN was started with the goal of keeping you updated on all the Clay Aiken news as it happens.  But the site became more than that.  Other elements have been added to help  keep the site fresh and informative.

Here are some interesting year statistics:

— We have published 530 posts and articles —

— We have 543 subscribers to CANN —

— We have had visitors from over 100 countries —

— We have had 7,948 published comments from readers —

— We have had fun —

From news about David Hyde Pierce to Diane Sawyer… information on bullying to autism… reviews of performances to crazy polls, live reporting from events to exciting memories, we have tried to keep the site interesting and fun.

Deona is the “techie”.  She keeps the site running.  She adds the “bells and whistles” that make this site interesting.

Musicfan123 (that’s me) is the writer.  Research and topic ideas are the most important part of my job.

SueReu is the artist.  She adds so much with her montages and she keeps the videos stream going.

We are all on the west coast.  Deona anad Musicfan123 live about 5 miles away from each other just north of San Francisco.  Being close makes co-ordination easier.  We have tried hard to present a place where all Clay fans are welcome.  Whatever your home board, we hope you enjoy our news.

So………lets celebrate!!  Here’s to 2010 and LOTS of news about Clay Aiken!

  22. Thank you Musicfan123. Thank you Deona. Thank you SueRue.

    Many of us have been coming to CANN for our daily manna for a year now and you have put your heart and soul into providing the best. You have sustained and energised and brought the Clay Nation together. I cannot fathom how much effort and time you have spent. Have you even taken a holiday?

    You should know how very, very grateful and happy you have made many of us for the whole year. Happy Anniversary.

  23. Congratulations CANN!! Deona, Musicfan123 and SueRue… good job. Thank you for your hard work. I never fail to read everything that you publish and play all Clay that you feature. What a wonderful site..thanks again!

  24. Thank you so much, CANN, for your daily connection to Clay and The Clay Nation — it's been a real gift during the horrendous draught we're experiencing. I am particularly grateful since I don't have the time or opportunity to visit the many boards to find out what's going on (especially when "not much" is the answer); but you gals keep me informed. And you do it with class, without ever getting into the nastiness or gossip or negativity that often floats around OMC, by letting let us revisit the past, enlightening us re: info related to Clay, encouraging us about the future, and just plain making us smile . . . . your many efforts are truly appreciated. Congratulations on your first anniversary . . . . and here's to many, many more!

    (And to a 2010 tour!!!)

  25. My congratulations are late but they are sincere. Thanks to all of you who keep this great site going.

    Here's to many many more years!


  26. I can’t thank you 3 ladies enough for the CANN. Each day that I log on to my email, there you are with photos, facts and widgets. Its so much fun to keep up with Clay (even when we don’t know what he’s up to) through all your dedication. I’ve also learned a lot about the music business just by reading your reports. Hope you keep it up for another year (or more).

  27. Congratulations on a WHOLE YEAR of absolute phenominal coverage of Our Man Clay. I have so enjoyed all the articles and polls, not to mention the PICTURES and VIDEOS..Wow we have a Treasure Trove here. I love this place. Can't wait to see what you and CLAY have instore for us this year.
