Welcome to the LAMB

by Dylan · October 31, 2007 · Uncategorized · 59 Comments

The Large Association of Movie Blogs has arrived on the scene, and is intended for all audiences.

For movie blog readers: rather than hunting through Google or through any number of blog directories and/or blogrolls looking for a site that fits your liking, this is your one-stop shop. Read up on the latest sites: who’s behind them, what their focus is, their goals and what you can expect when visiting.

For movie bloggers: this is a place for your blog to be spotlighted, in its own feature post, for all to see. Additionally, the LAMB is a community of film bloggers, some like you and proably some totally unlike you. We regularly have events and blog-a-thons, from our LAMB Devours the Oscars series to the Director’s Chair spotlights to our annual awards, The LAMMYS.

For a full rundown of events/features that the LAMB offers as well as an explanation of each, see the User’s Guide/FAQ.

If you would like your blog featured, the LAMB would love to feature you. Please keep in mind that there is an “age limit” – your site must be active for at least three months prior to being featured. Please do not submit a profile for a site that’s not “old” enough. Additionally, while just about anyone is welcome and there is no commitment to joining, we’re looking for and prefer active community members. As mentioned above, the LAMB regularly features events, from simple polls to blog-a-thons to other creative outlets like our Oscar series and “Battle” events.

Enough with the legalese. If you’d like to join, simply fill out the form below:

(After submitting correctly, a “Thank You” message will appear near the top of the page.)

Also, it should go without saying, but please put up a link to the LAMB on your site as well. This won’t work unless we all direct traffic here and thus turn on new readers and bloggers to each others’ sites. I know that sounds all sunny and happy unicornish, but it’s a fact. If you like, there is a selection of LAMB link buttons that can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, send them to largeassmovieblogs@gmail.com. Thanks!

    Did you know LAMB is also the name of Gwen Stefani’s clothing line- an acronym of her favorite words: Love, Angel, Music, Baby.
    And she just named her new spawn Zuma Nesta Rock? Ewww…..

  2. Fletch says:

    In fact I did know that. I wish I didn’t know all that, but I do.

  3. Argh! Scuppered by the 3 months rule… I’ll be back! On a serious note, love the blog, will be by regularly and submitting myself in about 4 weeks time.

  4. lorcy says:

    Two months to go for me. Grr. But thanks, this is a great resource.

  5. Mikes says:

    Let me send you one right away! Thanks!

  6. suvro says:

    Please add my movie blog in your listing

  7. Fletch says:

    Hi Suvro,

    I appreciate the interest, but am afraid it doesn’t work this way. If you’d like to join the LAMB, follow the instructions outlined in this post.

    Thanks.

  8. Ruth M says:

    Now that my blog’s been officially up for 3 months, I will definitely join. You’ll be hearing from me soon and I’ll proudly display the LAMB button on FlixChatter! =)

    Thanks!

  9. Darren says:

    Hey, just to let you know that I nominated you for a Kreativ Blog Award, which is a viral/spam thing – kind of a pass-it-on kudos for your good work (the particulars are over on my site). I’m sure you’ve got guys nominating you up the yin-yang, but I figured I’d take the opportunity to thank you for the service that you provide. Anyway, keep up the good work.

  10. Fletch says:

    Thanks, Darren! The rest of the LAMB “staff” and I will certainly try. :D

  11. joeBlow says:

    Looks like a pretty cool site, I wish thought of that idea first! I’ll attempt to join you when my site gets old enough!

  12. Reel Whore says:

    What a spanky page! Kudos.

  13. rtm says:

    I’m so embarrassed I still haven’t got around to joining. I think this is a fabulous site and great resource for the movie blogging community. I like how you have a form on the site instead of having to go through email though, that certainly makes things easier. I’ll be joining soon… count on it! :)

  14. Web Snacker says:

    I just filled up your form. Hope you review my blog and give me an entry ticket here soon.

    thanks.

  15. Wawa says:

    Well, me blog is not old enough.
    Excited to join! So, tune in!

  16. Simon says:

    How do you get a screenshot of your blog?

  17. Simon says:

    Hm…thanks.

    Now how do I use it?

  18. Fletch says:

    Simon – once you’ve saved a screenshot, you can upload here. I’m not exactly sure what you mean by your question.

  19. Simon says:

    I figured it out. Thanks.

  20. RATA Weekly says:

    Sounds Awesome. Looks like I’ve got less than 2 months before I can join. In the meantime, check out/follow my Free Unrated Webzine at

    Thanks.

    “The way to get good ideas is to get lots of ideas, and throw the bad ones away” You have defenitely thrown the worst away!

  22. KEVYN KNOX says:

    How long does it usually take before you are excepted by LAMB? I registered about a month ago and have had no response from LAMB.

    Not bitching, just anxious to officially join.

  23. Fletch says:

    Hi Kevyn,

    I tell people that it could be up to 30 days. I know that’s a long time, but I do this as a way to try to give every new LAMB some time to shine on the main page (as there can be many posts a day here).

    I received your profile on 7/25. You’re currently 13th in the queue, so it will probably be another week, give or take.

  24. KEVYN KNOX says:

    I appreciate it.

    Didn’t want to sound like I was complaining or anything like that – just anxious (and a bit of an instant gratification junky!).

    Thanx

  25. Hey there, well I love your site, its so resourceful. Although I have been an active member of blogspot for 3months I only started writing my blogs in August, as I just enjoyed reading at first before writing plus I deleted my first few blogs as they were not upto scratch (a learning curve I guess), I submitted the form.
    Anyways, i put your Lamb buttong on my blog even if I am not quite ready to be a member as I think this site is fab.

    Gracias, Dempsey

  26. Oh my God. I just thought about joining now. Hope I get in and thanks! :)

  27. Mystery Man says:

    I just submtted my movie blog. I’m looking forward to joining this community!

  28. Julian says:

    I’m having a friend design the banner for my blog, but his computer is having problems. Can i change the screenshot for my site at a later date?

    Cause i’ve been thinking about joining, but i’ve been afraid to since i am waiting on a banner for it

  29. Fletch says:

    Hi Julian – Yes, you can change your screenshot at a later date.

  30. Jenny says:

    I see our name in the Lamb scroll so does that mean we are a LAMB? I never got an email stating if we were accepted or not. Could someone let us know.

  31. Just submitted my blog. Look forward to seeing it in your listings!

  32. Custard says:

    I am so sorry,

    I seem to have submitted my blog twice.

    I am now officially 3 months old.

    Sorry I didnt mean to come across as impatient. LAMB is a great resource and I have met some really amazing bloggers through your page.

    My Apologies again

    Scott aka Custard

  33. just wondering if there’s a long line. i filled out the form more than a month ago

  34. Rachel says:

    You are 6th in my pending LAMB queue right now. It should be within the week.

  35. Audrey says:

    So pleased that I found this! I just started a blog reviewing the Top 1000 Films of all time, and while my little guy is a bit too young to join your group, I will definitely submit when the time comes. And in the mean time I’ll check out everyone else’s blogs!

  36. Joel Burman says:

    I entered my submission today, how are the descions announced?

  38. I look forward to joining more than you do! HA! My site is Xploiting Cinema Reviews. Come take in the tastelessness!

  39. Rachel says:

    Oliver, if you mean why do we have a 3 month minimum requirement before a site is accepted to the LAMB it’s b/c in the beginning, sites would join immediately after launching and the writer wouldn’t commit to running a blog, so then we’d ended up with a dead sites. So we decided to have time requirement.

  40. Oliver B says:

    Why is it that you can’t submit new blogs??

    My url: (http://thefilmfellow.blogspot.com/)

  41. Daniel says:

    Submitted my information, so glad I found you guys!

  42. hd film izle I just submtted my movie blog. I’m looking forward to joining this community!

  43. I started my own blog about four days ago, I really enjoy it, especially writing movie reviews. Only two months and 26 days before I can join LAMB! Will count them like sheep! See ya.

  44. Aidy says:

    Looking forward to joining LAMB, a brilliant collective of movie blog.

  45. So now that i have a banner should i just submit a new screenshot by itself?

  46. Rachel says:

    No worries. I can update that on your LAMB profile.

  47. David Matias says:

    I was ll filling out the form and then I got to the 3 months bit. Oh well, I guess I have about 10 more weeks to go. See you then!
    Happy Holidays.

  53. Akshy says:

    Just submitted my blog as well:). Hoping for the best:)

  54. Still not understanding the LAMB process. I have put in two different applications dating back months but have never heard anything after the intitial roto-email. They’re a really cool idea but I’m still not sure how they work.

  55. Nick says:

    What keithandthemovies said. I’ve applied and was wondering how long the application “process” takes? I haven’t received an email of any kind so I’m just curious. I have made it a point to be active in the forums, thinking that may help, but I still haven’t heard anything.

  56. Sofia says:

    Same here… I’ve been waiting for some time now, just wondering. :/
