cherichictopia 's Thoughts:

Hey Chictopians,

We’ve just celebrated our fifth month anniversary, and the Chictopia team would like to thank you for all your support! We’ve come a long way from our launch in April and our membership just topped 10,000! As most of you have noticed, we now have banner ads on top. Yes, this is a necessary step for us to move forward. We are just a small company right now, and we need some advertisers to help pay our server bills, clothes, shoes, you know, the necessary items for survival. But we make it a priority to keep your browsing experience pleasant, so let us know if there is a banner that looks too obtrusive to you. We are also open to new layout suggestions, so feel free to email me if you think you’ve come up with a better layout or design for the site. The banner for Rock The Vote at the top is not paid for by anyone. It’s simply something important we’d like to share with our users. Here at Chictopia, we celebrate fashion democracy, a community where talents surface base on meritocracy, not existing connections or ties to other entertainment industries. You can have a voice in fashion, regardless of where you come from. What I like about our community is that together, we are forming one of the most influential voices in fashion. We’ve been approached by editors ranging from established magazines to independent blogs to cover our story. Our trendsetters talented and original, our style seekers loyal and supportive. Our force unstoppable. We are the people’s fashion destination; transforming the fashion industry, one vote at a time. Politics, follow these same rules. While it’s true that there are existing institutions that pour money into interest groups that they support, for those of us starting out, we can still make a statement. Just like Chictopia, the internet has enabled our generation to communicate and unite based on interest and beliefs more easily than ever. Myspace and Youtube are crowded with self-made talents. However, while these stars shine above others, what makes them stars is the participation of their fans and votes by their followers. Stars are not born stars, they are made by the people. Leaders are not born leaders, they are made by those who vote and support them. We may not have money to donate, or the right connections to pull for the candidate we believe in. But we can still have a voice, a strong voice. Our country is facing a lot of turmoil at the moment, and it’s up to us, the young, to make a choice, not just in the clothes we wear, but in something just as important – the one who leads us. Reform or change America, Chictopia endorses voting.

CEO of Chictopia
