If you have already done that though, there is still one very important thing you can do - talk about them.
After all, there are a lot of contestants this season. Which means that there are a lot of entries for people to somehow find their way through.
Which means that there is often some great stuff that, for whatever reason, just isn't getting the love that it "deserves"! More to the point, the love that YOU feel it deserves.
Who are some of the unsung heroes of Week 1, and what do you love about their entries?
After all, it's like everything else - if you want it to be successful, there needs to be word of mouth. If no one else is speaking up for it, I guess it's up to you! :D If they are, well then one more recommendation never hurts!
Speaking of recommendations - if you get the chance, I posted a thank you to lj_spotlight last night. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/489487.html If you have a moment to wander over to add your thanks as well, it would be appreciated.
I don't know (or really care) how other groups do it. But I know how I want to operate - and a thank you is appropriate in this case. If you agree, stop over there and voice it.
