A little about me: My name is River. I live in Minnesota, USA. I currently am attending a community college to pursue my degree in videography, photography, and illustration. I grew up falling in love with music of all kinds (with the exception of country music). Out of all of the things I listened to growing up in Junior High, Maroon 5 grew on me and became my favorite music group of all time.
Why I started this community: I started Maroon 5 News Room mainly to connect easily with online users who are, like myself, fans of Maroon 5 and Adam Levine. Instead of sharing random posts, photos, videos and such of the band, I decided to share actual news and start a blog around this community. I created a Twitter and Facebook page in 2010 to help further spread word of M5 News Room. Before you knew it, I had over 20,000 followers including an Adam, James, and Maroon 5 follow on Twitter.
What do I consider myself: I do NOT consider myself a professional news reporter or Internet mogul of sorts. I DO consider myself someone who is dedicated to Maroon 5 and treats their fans with the utmost respect, for I would like to be treated the same. Remember, I am just like one of you.
Where do I get my sources: I report on news that is relatively important to those who consider themselves "hardcore" fans of Maroon 5 or even just loosely follow the band or follow my Twitter account/like my Facebook page. If rumors are surfacing about the band or its members, I will report on it from a perspective of a fan: meaning I will NOT confirm or deny rumors. REMEMBER, I only know just as much as you. To further elaborate, I get my sources from online celebrity websites, Maroon 5's community news page, and Maroon 5's S.I.N. website, which ANYONE can easily get sources from.
Do I get paid to run M5 News Room: Simple question, simple answer. No.
