What is the main focus of your site? My site focuses mostly on spoiler-free reviews of films that are currently in the theater. I try not to write over the heads of my readers by keeping the reviews short and simple. There is nothing philosophical about my site. I know that most of my readers go to the theater to be entertained. So, I try to base my reviews off of that.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog? I started my blog just for fun and quickly realized how much I enjoyed writing about movies. I feel even better when I have a good amount of traffic to the site. I write the blog to be read by others, so I am always looking to expand my viewership in any way possible.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? My blog has historically been more teacher/student focused. However, I would love to have more interaction with readers. I haven’t had much success in striking up conversation with readers, so I try not to be too pushy with it. Recently, I have been interacting with other bloggers who review films, and that has helped the interactive process a lot.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.) Next month will be my two year anniversary with the blog. I have recently found a nice groove for posting more consistently. I tend to post one or two times a week–more during the summer months. I try to review at least three or four films in a month (depending on how busy I am with school), and I do a monthly “Here’s what’s coming to theaters” type post called “Great Expectations.” Each month, I try to do at least one “special” post. So far, this year, I have done my worst of 2012, best of 2012, top 5 movies that I can watch on repeat, and a summer preview.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more). The Social Network
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
O Brother Where Art Thou
Name a movie you hate!! Anything Twilight
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? I have seen the logo on a few different review sites, but I do not remember specifically which ones.
