So a new feature to our site is going to be the “Spotlight” that will occur weekly. Once a week, we’ll take your suggestions for worthwhile fans, whether they somehow incorporate charity into being a fan, have done something really awesome for Justin, are a really talented fan, or is just the sweet person you know you can count on.
Our site will always revolve around gossip, but who says we can’t spread the word about the good things people do? We’re not monsters, and when someone mentioned this as a possible addition to the type of posts we do on our site we were all over it!
These don’t have to be fans with a lot of followers, although they can be, and we’ll narrow down the entries to one person a week. You can nominate others, or even yourself, we’ll never know since the suggestions will be on Formspring. Just start the “question” with “Spotlight Suggestion:” and write about that person (including their Twitter name), and say what is so awesome about that person. You can remain anonymous, or leave your name if you want that person to know it’s you who nominated them if they end up on our blog!
If you’re not chosen one week, you can still be chosen the next, just nominate yourself again (or someone else can re-nominate you!)
We live very fortunate and blessed lives and want everyone to know that despite the secrets and gossip we post, we’re human and like to acknowledge the good in people as well. People constantly call us “the next Perez Hilton” for both good and bad reasons, and here’s a wake up call: Perez supports and advertises tons of charitable causes and rising talents on his site as well. We’ll keep blogging about the dirt we dig up in the same manner, but once a week we’ll have the “Spotlight.”
Just because you have a hankering for the knitty-gritty truth doesn’t mean you can’t have a passion for the greater good as well.
