Acne.org is now listed in one of the main textbooks given to pharmacy students, The Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs, amongst “selected sites that appear to provide accurate information.” I’m partly excited and partly wondering why it took them so long.

Hilarity. A member of the boards contacted me a few months ago because he had bought one day of “shirt wearing” at IwearYourShirt.com, a web site where a couple of guys sell the privilige of wearing your company logo for a day. The member offered the day to Acne.org, and after looking at the website, I gladly accepted the offer. He asked for a Regimen kit in return, which I sent out to him.

If you’re in the Jacksonville, FL, or Los Angeles, CA area you might see these guys. I think it’s a great idea, and I love being part of home grown stuff like this :)

I’m working on seeing if there’s an automated way I can let you guys order a t-shirt/hoodie/sweatshirt from somewhere. I’ll let you know if I find a good option.

Melissa, the woman from MSNBC who interviewed me this morning, would like to talk to a few people who have taken antibiotics to no avail. If that’s you, please feel free to email her at [email protected] She’s cool and easy to talk to.

Thanks!

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

I haven’t seen it yet, but Debi from Clear Up Skin Care just called and said it’s in there. She said it’s a whole page. Whoa. I’m so scared to look at my picture. I am so not photogenic. lol. Anyway, let’s hope this really reaches a lot more people with acne. We’re clearin’ up the world y’all…

A freelance writer contacted me recently asking if she could write an article about Acne.org for the L.A. Times. No sooner than she said, “come on down”, Kent and I borrowed Kent’s mom’s truck and drove down to L.A. and met with Serena, the writer, at a Hollywood restaurant where she conducted the interview. I get nervous, but I think it went well. Serena was a pro–tough but fair. Then the Times photographer came to meet us and we did a photo shoot on the top of a nearby parking garage. It was truly hilarious. I felt like a star, getting photographs taken in Hollywood.

Bottom line–I think a ton of people will find out about Acne.org through this article. I am mucho excited. Nobody but the Times editors know exactly when it will run, but probably in a week or two. It will be in the “Image” section of the Sunday Times I am told. I’ll be sure to get a copy or two and put a pic of it up on the site.
