Catch Justin in this Fall's "Runner Runner" and "Inside Llewyn Davis"
On September 24th, 2003, A freshman who hated her current class setting took to the computer lab and created what was then a “geocities” page for her favorite singer. A decade later that page is now a couple thousand pages, and better known as Worldofjustin.com.
To get credits for a class i couldnt care less about, the teacher told us to make an “html page” of something we are interested in, and see where it goes. Well if i could find him, I’d thank him for pointing me in the direction that would one day be a job.
Most “fansites” are created for money, or for a limited time while the creator either cashes in on their latest celebrity craze or during their current run on top. WoJ was not created for either purpose. In fact I can honestly say I have never cashed in on this site. The money I have made on the ads has always gone into the maintenace for the site and materials used. in fact for the first 6 years I didnt even know I could make a profit. WoJ was created because I had such respect for Justin not only as a musician but as the man I knew he was. At that time he was just releasing Justified, and as far as websites went, there was maybe one or two other sources online. Both of which were great. One had media content so fastidily uploaded, and the other was very reliable with news. However, why visit two different sources for something? you wouldn’t go to the grocery store for food and then to Macy’s for shoes when you could just go to your local target and get it all done at once right ?
Thus why worldofjustin was created.
Being one of JT’s biggest fans, i had both the knowledge and the materials to do the job and I also needed the grades.
In the ten years I have run this site there are so many memories. Whether it be having justin’s concert photographer tap me on the shouldar and personallly ask me to post his photos on the site, having entertainment magazine feature us in their 25 hottest websites list or getting a call from the man who shot justin’s dazed and confused magazine shoot asking me to remove the set as I was meeting Justin. it has definetly been a fun experience.
After ten years of writing these anniversary messages, whats left to say ? all I know is that i never expected this site to still be around. I know we create pages with the expectation it will be around for a while and simply hope for the best. However websites come and go, and with the social media available websites arent as needed as they once were, so to say you run a fan blog for even more than a year is impressive, but a decade ?? now thats something to say.
- Best Day ever on woj (hit wise) – superbowl, when the pepsi commercial was premiered
- Worst Day – believe it or not , his wedding day. (I guess fans were too busy crying)
Special thanks to the following :
- Hollywood.com, Lishann and Ben
my amazing host! i wouldnt trade you guys for the world! the most supportive group of people ive met, very helpful and always there when i need them for just about everything.
- Cristine, Amber, Daphne, Chrissy, Brenny and Chris
past, present and hopefully future of woj has been greatful for the things you have done for the site and on it.
Although you may never know it, or care, this site was created for you. Your fans are simply one of the most dedicated group of people on earth. Album sales dont lie baby, and without promotion half of that is not possible. Without good sales, the artist would not exist, therefor I try my best to make sure every fan is informed of your every move to support you in every aspect of your career. When your on top we want to keep you there, and when you are hiding we want to make sure the world still cares when you return. Here’s to ten years of dedication, respect and unconditional support, and hopefully ten more years!
