What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
I’m still trying to figure that out, I think. Mostly reviews and lists from what you mention, maybe some special editorials from time to time. Like most of us living outside of L.A., I doubt I’ll be breaking any major news, so probably best to leave that to the insiders.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Personally, to keep a record of the many movies I see (with a grade that I can qualify), offer any unique thoughts I might have to the movie blogosphere, and gain new insights from the thousands of us that are already doing this. Professionally, – wait a minute, people do this professionally?
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I actually was a middle school teacher for a few years – no need to recreate that environment here. Getting into this has been pretty humbling, so I’m definitely not claiming any expertise. I love an interactive, lively community, especially with people who are interested in and knowledgeable about movies. Has anyone said otherwise?
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
September 2007. I don’t foresee ever being able or willing to post daily or hourly, but I try not to go more than 3-4 days between posting. It all depends on the time of the year and how busy the rest of my life and work is. Of course, I also have to spend some time actually at the movies.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
I’ll do one to make things simple, as long as I can qualify it. The Power of One. It’s not the best movie ever made or anything – not even close. But it’s the first movie that, when I was an adolescent boy, grabbed me emotionally and intellectually, and nothing’s been the same since.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
Ran across Blog Cabins somehow, and here I am.
Any additional comments.
This LAMB project is great – nice work, really. Hope it continues to grow…
