We Appreciate Your Business (A Note From Mary)

Hello Everyone,

We have been working on this blog for 8 months now. Wow, time flies! In that time, our number of readers has grown, we have added expansions to the blog with Twitter and Facebook, and we're loving every minute of it. We started this blog to give you guys AFI news in one clear site. No more rummaging through multiple threads on the Despair Faction. We feel we have done that pretty well.

But, we want to do more. What do you guys want to see as far as content/layout improvements? What do you guys want to see less of? We started this for the fans and we want to keep the fans involved in our process. We want your thoughts, so post a comment or e-mail us. We will read them all.

As always, I wanted to thank all of you for reading this blog. When I joined the team, I never expected to have it be this big with this many followers. I certainly didn't expect that when 'AFI News' is typed into Google, our blog is right there on top. I love seeing everybody's comments regarding news and recognizing people in the community. I hope that you all enjoy what you read on here and that our work is to your benefit.

We look forward to better serving you, the fans. You are the only reason we continue to do this. Thank you to all of you.

  1. This would be a decent amount of work on your end I'm sure, but what would be awesome is the night by night setlists with links to youtube videos of the respective songs posted next to them as they appear.

    Hey guys, firstly congratulations on doing an amazing job. I love getting up in the morning and checking out the blog for the latest updates.I thought it would be cool if you guys can bunch together all the press for Crash Love. For example all the interviews, reviews, photos, etc respectively.Cheers

  6. Two new polls just added, with more coming later this week. And Mark, as soon as I can get some time, I'll add video links to the setlists at our Tour Blog. http://afitour.blogspot.com

  7. I think you guys should have a specific section that lists every song the band plays from Crash Love live for the first time and the location.At the Newport Davey had said that they were playing IATVHTBH live for the first time, then the show right after that one they played too shy and something else.^I started it for you guys :P

  8. Sure thing, rockxandxrollx13! Once all of the songs have been played live, we'll make a post with the dates and venues of each song's debut.FollowTheWhiteRabbit, once all of the Crash Love fervor dies down, we'll make a compilation document and put it up for download. :)
