If you're continuously posting news about what someone is doing, including their latest projects, is it correct to say (in the description of a fansite, for example):

updates on everything going on with her

Is there a better way to express the concept?

Maybe you've got a target idiom in mind, but, if so, I don't recognize it. In humdrum English, "there are updates on everything that's going on with her" / "on everything she's doing"

So a short and informal description like: "Photos, videos and updates on everything going on with her" would sound ok? – Barbara Jul 6 '12 at 21:10
@Barbara: Yes, it would. – John Y Jul 6 '12 at 21:15
Ok, great! Thanks @JohnY. – Barbara Jul 6 '12 at 21:18

A better (more professional, IMHO) phrase might be

Updates on her current activities

If you want to sound more comprehensive, perhaps something like:

Complete updates on all of her current activities

@Barbara: I guess that depends on the fans (and the object of their adoration)! ;) – FrustratedWithFormsDesigner Jul 6 '12 at 21:28
