This Is A Mod Post!

at 11:40 PM
I've been saying for the past couple weeks that I would address this situation and clear up any confusion regarding Clique Girlz Media and how I will run it in light of recent news. As you may notice from the new layout, which I hope everyone will enjoy, the only girls present now are Destinee, Paris, and Ariel. With Ariel's departure from NMD, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get this site back to what it used be; a fan site for the Clique Girlz. As we all know, however; there is no Clique Girlz the band anymore, but there are still the Clique "girls". Ariel Moore, Destinee Monroe, and Paris Monroe were and always will be the original Clique Girlz. Therefore, this site will now only focus on those three girls.


EDIT: Can I just make things clear for a second? All three girls are on the banner. All three girls are on the banner more than once. Destinee and Paris happen to be the main focus and are bigger than the pictures of the Clique Girlz, but in case you haven't noticed; Destinee and Paris as a group have been going strong for years now. Ariel JUST left her band. She doesn't have anything out for her solo career right now except for her PSA. I'm not going to design an entire layout around a two minute, black and white video of her standing in front of a wall. When she has stuff out for her solo career or whatever, who knows? Maybe I will make an entire layout with the focus on her. But right now, at this time; the layout is focused on D&P/Clique Girlz. It's nothing against Ariel at all. But coming from a designer's perspective, you have to use pictures that go together or are from the same shoot. Since there are none of the three girls together anymore, it's very hard coming up with idea after idea to link the two together. So forgive me for wanting to make ONE decent layout that doesn't look like a collage of pictures that don't go together. Don't like it? Fine. Like it? Even better. But let's not accuse me of things, or start yelling at me because of this.


And to the anon that is leaving rude, obnoxious comments about certain people, me included; I am not amused, I am not offended, and I am certainly not going to lose any sleep over the fact that you're threatening to not come back to the site. So goodbye, and good luck (:

Please read the details underneath the cut.


Now that Ariel ( an original Clique Girl) has nothing to do with NMD ( or the new group they are forming ), unfortunately this site will no longer update on them. I want everyone, including the girls and their families to know that this does not change how I feel about the girls. I was always a fan of the group, not just Ariel, and I will always support the girls; Alissa-Mae Padilla, Aliyah Flowers, Camille Abordo, Breanne Oaks, Lorelei Sinco, and Kimberly Rose. And I hope they know that they will always have a fan, supporter, and friend in me. And to their parents, in particular Mrs. Rose and Mrs. Oaks; who have always been so sweet and kind to me, I will never forget your generosity and friendship. And just so it's out there, if any of you ever need any help in promoting or anything else, you can always contact me. I'd be more than willing to help in any way possible.

As for Sara Diamond, she was not an original Clique Girl but she still was a member of the Clique Girls at some point. Therefore, as I did with former members before, I will still do an occasional update on Sara when there is something to update on.

I know this decision will make some people happy, and it's bound to make some people upset, and I'm sorry about that. I hope this decision doesn't cause the site to lose any visitors, but if it does I will just have to deal with it.

Because of this, a lot of people were asking me if I know of any sites that will be updating on the NMD girls as they continue on their journey. As of right now, I only know of two and they are both tumblrs.

http://kimibreanneloreleifans.tumblr.com
http://nomoredramamedia.tumblr.com
http://www.wix.com/nmdst8/nomoredramastreetteam

I do know of a few sites that are coming though, and as soon as I receive information about them, I will pass it along. As for my tumblr, I will continue to post pictures, quotes, lyrics, etc. of ALL of the girls because it is my tumblr. I will also tweet news about ALL of the girls via my twitter as well, so please don't unfollow if you are an NMD fan.

Another concern I want to address is that if in the future, no fansites for the new NMD girls' band are made and/or are never updated, I may consider making a "fan site" for them. This fan site may be as simple as a tumblr however, because as I previously stated; I just don't have time for more than one site right now. But updating on them is sort of a force of habit right now. I still catch myself collecting info, pictures, etc. to update my site with lol. It's something my heart is still in.

Please continue to support my site as well as all of the girls. I sincerely hope that this won't change anyone's opinion or attitude about any of the girls. And thank you for your continuous support (:



On a different note, do you like the new, summery layout? I originally wanted to do something completely different and pretty snazzy; unfortunately blogger won't support the script I wanted to use :/ So this was my second design. I hope it's not too disappointing. lol.

Hey Kristen!

Just to say that I really loved your new layout! It looks so amazing! Congrulations!

Have a great day!
Natxhypy!

I LOVE the design! My favorite part is the ipod lol :D I think the decision you made was the best Kristin. The site wass getting kind of crazy.

hey :)
i also think it's better to focus on Ariel, Destinee & Paris as they are the original Clique Girlz, even though i like NMD..

i like your new layout but why isn't Ariel in the front with D & P?
it would have been great if there was a big recent picture of her..

BEST DESIGN YET! I LOVE IT!!!! <3

Aw thank you guys so much! <3 You seriously just made my day :D And thanks again, Natxhypy for letting me use the pictures! I greatly appreciate it.

Sara said...

I love it Kristin, some of your best work yet. It would be nice to have a larger pic of ariel along with D and P though. You should prob fix the twitter to, just wanna see the girls. Other then that I love how colorful everything is, really fresh and new.

I support you 1000% Kristen. Everything you said is so true and it's YOUR site and people should not tell you how to run YOUR site. First of all, D&P are well on their way and have worked really really hard and should be the main focus now. Ariel chose to leave them and now leave NMD. I think she needs to find herself before she keeps changing her mind so much because fans like myself are confused. We love and support her but are not sure she really knows what she really wants. People are getting hurt by her decisions that make her happy but what about the feelings of other band members involved and us fans that have been there since the beginning? I will always support her no matter what and D&P because I love them all and we are all humans and all make mistakes. Good luck to you and keep up the great work. I will continue to support you and YOUR site no matter what YOU decide to do.

I agree with you 100% on that :)

Thank you! Seriously, thank you! <3 And I totally agree with you. No disrespect to Ariel though, because I think she's on her way to finding herself. We saw it when she first left the Clique Girlz, and I think we're going to see the true Ariel again very soon. But in the mean time, it's exactly like you said. Thank you again! I really appreciate this comment.

Ok seriously, Ariel in my opinion did a really gutsy move on trying another group and we, meaning the fans don't and wont know all of the details just like we will never know all the details about her leaving CG's. Yes, your right Kristin I believe we will all see the true Ariel soon just like we did when she did the PSA for her dad. And I happen to know because I have spoken to her and that she has some really cool things in the works and we will all be very surprised soon. But this Ariel needs to find herself stuff, sorry, I don't feel thats the case at all. I feel she gives lots of people a chance and gets hurt too people. Sorry but I don't feel bad for anyone because they got an instant fan base when Ariel included them. And one thing I do know is Ariel did the right thing in both cases. I wont say anything else but that. SHE DID THE RIGHT THING, and we will be hearing a lot more about her really soon. And I love your new layout kristin, Ariel is all over it so everyone needs to just chill. It looks great and you do a great job.

^ Thank you!

i completely agree with the person who said ariel needs to find herself... she definitely made a mistake making a group called no more drama with 5 teenage girls in it... i mean that just has drama written all over it.... we all just want the old ariel back. love your layout though kristen very nice job! it looks fantastic.

cliquegirlzmedia on April 13, 2011 at 6:53 PM said...

^ Aw, thank you!
I wouldn't call it a mistake, it's more like a learning experience (:

Anna on April 13, 2011 at 7:20 PM said...

I really like the new layout! I think people need to understand that there aren't really any new photos of Ariel by herself, and especially none that will go with the pictures of Destinee and Paris. If you want a different layout go do it yourself, Kristen doesn't have to make this site for you. Speaking of which, shouldn't the information matter more than the look? They're both great, but even if you don't like the new layout, the site is still amazing. Chill.

cliquegirlzmedia on April 13, 2011 at 7:28 PM said...

^ Awww thank you, Anna! :D Finally, someone who makes sense! I really appreciate your comment! I hope others can understand it like you do.

Sara said...

Seriously everyone is not even focusing on the issue at hand and that is the new layout and Kristin did a great job. I will say I am so glad Ariel is going back solo, that is how I liked her best, and I love D&P so all us fans can be happy again. So glad we are getting back to the real deal and that is the 3 girls. And I'm sorry to disagree with anyone but I like when Ariel say's how she feels. Means she is not afraid to say things and that means she is strong and never giving up, THANK GOD! Excited for D&P and Ariel and I LOVE YOUR NEW LAYOUT!

cliquegirlzmedia on April 13, 2011 at 7:59 PM said...

^ Thank you, Sara! I completely agree with you! And please don't think I meant I didn't like when Ariel stands up and addresses the issues, it's not that. I adore that she can speak her mind and that she's not afraid to say what she wants. That is a great quality and I hope she never loses that (: And thank you for supporting all three girls! Love that ;D haha. And thank you for your sweet comments about the layout, means a lot! (:

I'm not sure which comment was yours, but either I didn't get it, or it was disrespectful in some way (ei. bad language, attacking, rude, etc.) I never won't post a comment just because I don't agree with it. I don't agree with a lot of comments that do get posted. I'm not like that, I promise. And thank you!
