What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
The main focus of my site is movie news about movies currently in production. I give my readers the latest production updates, gossip, pictures/trailers etc, basically I figure that, as a film fan, if I find it interesting then it must be news worthy!
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
As of yet my main focus is building up my number of readers, although the aim would be to create an interactive site, with readers exchanging their views on the news items that’s posted.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I’ve been movie blogging for around 4 months now, normally averaging 5-7 posts a day at a minimum, although news seems a little slow this morning!
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
My favourite movies? A tough one! I think I’d have to go for… The Godfather, Philadelphia and A Few Good Men. The thing that strikes me with The Godfather is the strong sense of family and tradition, you come away from the movie completely understanding how and why the Corleone’s do what they do, it romanticizes the Gangster life like no other movie has managed to do since.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
I heard about LAMB through Blogcatalog – one of the best moves I made when starting out was to join Blogcatalog. The community on there is fantastic, I’ve got some great link exchanges going with like-minded Bloggers and I’ve seen some real talent on there too.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
I think that sites such as LAMB are an invaluable tool to the online community. It gives people an impartial look at the information that’s out there, putting it all together in an easy to use ‘one stop shop’, as a movie fan myself I can appreciate how valuable a tool like LAMB can be.
