What is the main focus of your site? The BackLOG Reviews are unique in that the movie I review is chosen completely at random out of a box filled with movies I own but haven’t seen before or recommendations from fans that I also haven’t seen before. With so many movies coming out, it’s easy to fall behind, so this blog helps me get through that backlog of what I meant to watch and does so in a fun way that’s fun for readers to follow!
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog? This is a blog that is really about having fun and enjoying movies of all types from all time periods. It’s been running for a few years with a small audience, but I really want to increase the audience this year and just really turn this into something great!
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? I love interaction and having a community talking about the movies that come out of the box because for many readers, these are films they’ve seen before, adored, hated, and it’s a lot of fun, especially since I’ll pull a movie from the box and post video of that a few days before the review, so I can get early opinions.
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.) Season 1 of the BackLOG started in 2011 and that was the only full season (100 movies). The two years after were slow going and have only seen a dozen or so reviews, but 2014 plans to bring 4 posts a week (2 video pulls and 2 written reviews).
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more). Cloud Atlas
High Fidelity
In America
Name a movie you hate!! 100 Girls (I microwaved it in Season 1 of the BackLOG)
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? Searched on Yahoo for Movie Review Blog Community
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above. (optional) I started the BackLOG with the hopes of introducing people to movies they might not have seen before and the fun of the fact that it’s random for me and I haven’t seen them either even though they are sometimes “must sees” has been really fun. It is a very unique blog experience and part of the joy is that there’s the risk of a movie getting 1 out of 10, which means that on the next video log, I microwave the DVD for the world to see. 🙂
