Thank_you_001I take it for granted sometimes, but I think it’s so cool that we have such an active, helpful, supportive community of people on Acne.org sharing their knowledge and experience.

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who are active here at Acne.org, whether that be through adding your honest review of products or treatments you have tried, or whether it is asking and/or answering questions on the forum, uploading pictures to the gallery, or keeping a blog of your experience with acne treatment.

How much do we all rock?! A lot.

Acne.org has always relied on word of mouth to get the word out. Lately we’ve been receiving lots of emails from people telling us they found Acne.org through watching YouTube videos that mention Acne.org. I took a look and there are lots of people posting videos on YouTube sharing their experience with The Regimen or giving their opinions on Acne.org products. If you have a few minutes sometime, please feel free to add your voice by uploading a YouTube video yourself. Feel free to be as creative as you want. Here are a few of the types of videos people have been posting:

  • Sharing their opinion and experience on The Regimen
  • Product “hauls”
  • Showing before & after pictures to share their success
  • Doing weekly updates as they proceed with The Regimen so people can watch their progress in real time
  • Thanks to everyone who has been posting on YouTube. It is a great way of letting people know The Regimen is the real deal.

    Note: All of the YouTube videos which mention Acne.org are unsponsored.

    Acne.org does not advertise.

    Most people find us on Google. The way Google ranks a web site is based on who links into that web site. Basically, the more links that come into Acne.org from around the Internet, the more easily people will continue to find us and get the info and support they need.

    How You Can Help:

  • Post a link to Acne.org in your blog.
  • Link the words “acne treatment”, “acne treatments”, or simply the word “acne” to the Acne.org homepage (http://www.acne.org).
  • If you have a favorite Acne.org page, feel free to link to that. For example, link the word “Accutane” to http://www.acne.org/accutane.html
  • Thanks you guys! This will really help! If you have any questions on how to do this, feel free to contact me.


    It’s been another awesome year. You’ve all contributed a ton to the site with your reviews, blogs, galleries, forum posts, success stories, and emails. Even those of you who just come to hang out and read, I want to thank you for being here and becoming more educated so that you can spread the word amongst your family and friends should the time arise.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that 2010 is going to be even more exciting. The scientific community is producing some very interesting research into acne. I’ll share it all with you as I discover it myself. In the meantime, I hope you have a joyous holiday and enjoy the love that surrounds you.

    The new acne treatment ratings and reviews pages are up! The new ratings and reviews pages should be more streamlined. We switched from multiple 1-5 ratings to one global 1-5 rating to simplify the process. Navigation is improved, and it should be much easier for you guys to add products too. If you find any glaring bugs, or if you have strong opinions on what needs to be added or changed, please reply to this blog post or to the post I’m making in the Announcements forum.

    These new pages are the result of months of hard work. A big thanks to Joel and Paul for being amazing as usual.

    Enjoy!

    Hey you guys. Guess what!? We’ve got 100 pages of Regimen success stories now! They’re pretty inspiring and uplifting if you haven’t checked them out. Thanks to all of you who continue to send in your stories. The more success stories we have, the more it helps people realize the Regimen is for real.

    Also, we recently added an automatic way to upload pictures and videos to the success stories page, so feel free to upload your before and after or a video of yourself. Thanks everybody!

    MTV is doing a documentary, “True Life: I Have Acne”. We’ve been communicating with them and I think this is a great opportunity to reduce the stigma of acne. The more acne is talked about the better in my opinion. I wanted to reach out and see if there might be someone in our community who would be interested in participating in the documentary. They’re looking for someone between 15-25 years old. I told them I’d be willing to be on camera but I’m too old 😉

    I would love it if the person who decides to do this was willing to use The Acne.org Regimen during the documentary as well. It would be a great chance to get the word out on how well The Acne.org Regimen works. Of course I can help out by supplying products free of charge during filming. Let me know if this would be something you or someone you know might be interested in and if it would work in your life in the next few months. I think it could be a very good thing. You can email me if you are interested.
