Good Housekeeping, Pt. 2

Jason here. I want to use this post to both welcome a new writer, and to share a few important notes about the blog.
First, let’s welcome Kera to our growing staff of writers! She is a long-time AFI News HQ reader, around nearly since the dawn of the blog. Her passion and enthusiasm for AFI is hard to beat (as well as her online hours), so we’re very excited to have her as part of our team.
I also want to explain a new situation that has arisen. As some of you know, I am indeed 14 years old, and therefore required by law to attend school. My school year has begun, and I do not get home until early evening. Therefore, in order to have your news tips posted to the blog as soon as possible, please send them to Pablo or Brandon between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST on weekdays. You can e-mail them by clicking on their names in the top right corner.
As Crash Love approaches, and the news begins to arrive by the bucketload, we need as many eyes around the Internet as possible. This includes you, the readers. I want to thank all of you who send e-mail to us. Whether it is a news tip, some setlist information, or even a “thank you,” you are all helping in amazing ways. Here we strive to collect AFI news and information from all over the Internet and put it in one place, but we can’t do it without your help. So please, keep sending the tips. You WILL receive credit. And if you don’t, please let us know. It is probably just a mistake.
As a final note, you may have noticed that we recently added “retweet” buttons to each story. The purpose of these is to instantly spread the word about specific AFI news. Tweeting a story is effortless: just click on the green “retweet” button and you will be taken to Twitter, with your status already filled in. Just click “update” and you’re done. By doing this, you are helping spread the information far and wide, as well as spreading the word about the blog. We want as many people as possible to get accurate AFI news and information.
Many thanks,

Note: On June 30, 2010 AFI News HQ was hacked and all posts were deleted. This is one of the posts that was affected. The text here was imported from a backup, but all of the original comments are gone and the author credited below is only responsible for reposting in most cases.
