Volunteer writers wanted

Feb 12 2010, 3:50am

OK I'm starting a new series of posts in my blog called [Know your AKB members: (insert member name)]. I'm not actually going to write this but instead inviting their fans to write it. Even though I follow all their threads in Stage48, I still don't know much about a lot of members, and I haven't been around that long so I don't know lots of happenings. Plus although biased, it tells us why their fans like her so much. Which is better than speculating reasons. So I'm looking for volunteers willing to write about their favourite members.

It doesn't have to be a professional like post. Just a simple one on why you like her, some interesting things about her, loads of pictures and videos, those kind of stuff. Like the typical fangirl/boy posts, but with more detail and information to make other readers take interest in her. The closest example I can give you is here

From experience, most of the newer members join the AKB fandom from the singles or dramas. For the singles, it is only the senbatsu who appear in the PVs (not counting SakuShio, BINGO!) and only the front girls who get much screentime in PVs. So it's mostly those girls who get their interest. It's not until quite some time later that they start to explore the hidden depths of AKB and realise that there are much more good stuff that they have been missing out on all those. *Remembers those times where I would watch a concert and skip all the songs that didn't have Acchan lol* So that's basically the reason for doing this. To promote those hidden girls to the newer members (and some older ones too). Of course, this doesn't mean that it will only be of them. Front girls and those pushed members and such are welcome too. Especially for girls like Acchan and such since they have haters.

Please email reply or comment it here if interested. (note: for security purposes I'll be using my old email but I still check it). If a girl has been taken already but you are interested, still email me and the 2 (or more) writers willing to write about her will both write the post and I will choose which one to post here, or I may put both into 1 post. Also choose girls who are only in AKB, plus the 5 that got transferred to SDN. SKE and SDN will come later after AKB. AKB RS are included under AKB. Oh and the writers of the other blogs are allowed too. You can write about multiple girls if you want to.

Girls chosen so far: Kitahara Rie, Kojima Haruna, (Maeda Atsuko or Nakagawa Haruka), , , Itano Tomomi, Miyazawa Sae

Finished: Oshima Yuko, Kashiwagi Yuki, Masuyama Kayano
