Or is or it Clay-mate? Either way...
I've got to give a big thanks to all the Clay Aiken fans who have responded to "Sean's Space" since Wednesday night, shattering the single-day record for hits to the blog!
When I found at (at the last minute) around 10 p.m. EST on Wednesday night that I'd be interviewing Clay, I posted here asking for his fans to e-mail me with a question for Clay, and I'd pick the best one. Now, being late here on the East Coast, I thought maybe a few e-mails would trickle in. Nope! In the first two hours, I got 32 e-mails from Clay's fans, each asking a question!
Set to talk to Clay at 11 a.m. Thursday morning, I had to stop taking readers' questions at 10:45 to pick a few to ask him. I had more than 134 questions e-mailed to me in less than 12 hours!
Amazing, Claymates! Absolutely incredible! Thanks for the help!
Having posted Clay's answers to your questions right at midnight Thursday night, I waited to see who'd come back to read the post. The response was amazing! Between midnight 12 a.m. Friday morning and 11:59 p.m., you devoted Claymates jammed "Sean's Space," breaking my previous one-day total for visitors to the blog by 225 percent!
(BTW, the previous record came back in August when I interviewed "American Idol" champ Taylor Hicks and included a few of his fans' questions, and then wrote a review of his Poughkeepsie show.)
So, again Claymates (or Clay-mates), I give you a heartfelt thanks for your interest and for coming back in droves. Tell your friends and keep coming back throughout the next week, as I'll keep updating you on his Poughkeepsie show here in town on Dec. 8th.
With fans like you, it's no wonder Clay is always so happy and laughing!
