Our editorial staff as a whole have mostly lost interest in the show. LJ fandom has changed so much. We felt like it was time to close up shop. We're really proud of how long we lasted, especially in a non-genre fandom where it's not necessarily the norm to have an active fandom newsletter. It was fun while it lasted!

Welcome to the watcher journal of gossipgirlnews! What should you do if we've friended you? Nothing! You don't need to friend this journal back. You don't need to comment. You don't need to visit us ever again. All you have to do is be interesting and creative; Upper East Siders aren't the only ones who can make headlines.

DON'T FRIEND THE WATCHER JOURNAL. We are only interested in keeping up with public Gossip Girl-related content and commentary; we do not link to f'locked material. When you friend ggirls_watcher, it means more work for us. It also means that our entire editorial staff will have access to your locked posts, and we know you don't want that.

DON'T COMMENT with links to commentary, news items, or fanworks. Send us the deets at tips4gossipgirl@gmail.com or comment on the most recent newsletter at gossipgirlnews.

DO COMMENT if you or your community would like to be friended (or unfriended).

DO JOIN GOSSIP GIRL NEWS for dish on all of the latest going-ons in the Gossip Girl fandom.

We'll be watching you!

XOXO, Gossip Girl News

gossipgirlnews is automated, meaning we use a script to automatically sort and compile the newsletter from recent links in our Delicious account. Editors spend about 15 minutes every day reading their assigned filter and collecting, labeling, and tagging links for our Delicious. Three times a week, an editor runs the script, proofreads and corrects the output, and posts the newsletter.

  • You must be a super huge fan of the best show ever, obviously!

  • You must commit to spending up to an hour each week sifting through a filter of Gossip Girl communities/news and collecting links for the newsletter. Links should be collected regularly, at least every other day.

  • You should be over the age of 18. We'll take your word for it, but you will be linking to (and likely reading through) posts that contain adult content. So you should probably be an adult!

  • You must have regular access to a reliable Internet connection.

  • You cannot be spoiler-phobic. (Unfortunately, there is simply no way to compile the newsletter without always being moderately spoiled for upcoming episodes.)

  • You must be open minded. gossipgirlnews is an inclusive newsletter, and you'll be linking to all sorts of things, regardless of your personal preferences.

  • Familiarity with delicious.com is a plus, but it's not required as long as you're willing to learn. (And it's *really* easy!)
If none of that scares you away, drop us a comment in this post. If you've got questions, ask away.
