Firstly, FanSiter is two things: a blog/e-zine and a system for creating fansites. The former is hosted on WordPress and should be familiar since you are reading it right now. Whereas the latter was the original trajectory, something I envisioned back in the Fall of 2007 when I quit my job and registered the domain name. This project is bigger than its plans, however, and it is steering in an unanticipated direction.
I am, we all are I think, a fan of many things. There's so many people doing so many things today, but it's easy to get trapped under popular culture and the televised mainstream. Many interesting celebrities are underexposed and it is a task to search them out. This blog is a forceful beacon of random and potentially obscure artists. Food, or rather people, for thought.
This isn't a news site in any sense except that we may be influenced by such channels when preparing content. This isn't a gossip site either. And as much as the snarky and cynical can be amusing, this is a generally positively charged stream of information. You may think of FanSiter, and what we deliver, to be the emotional antithesis of TMZ, WWTDD, etc.
So what is different than my master plan? I'm still spending a great deal of time developing the platform and tools for creating fansites, to eventually be made available for public consumption. However, I brought a writer on board named Stephanie who has done an outstanding job of caring for the blogging aspect. In fact, she's gone above and beyond to the point of seeking out interviews and single-handedly started our Exclusives.
So what is FanSiter now? A web space where you can learn about new people and their work: celebrities, artists, and musicians.
