Site Name: Taliesin Meets the Vampires
Categories: reviews, editorials, news, vampires
Rating: coming from the UK I’m not that familiar with the MPAA guidelines. I’d probably give myself a UK rating of 18 due to the nature of the material I look at. [Editor’s note: We’ll call that an ‘R.’]
What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
Vampires, anything to do with vampires. I occasionally have news about coming films or books, lots of reviews – primarily films but also books, my own thoughts on the genre and the occasional interview
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Just to enjoy the process. I love vampire genre material and watching/reading it. The blog lets me voice my love of the genre and I use it for that. Not that I’m saying I wouldn’t want to make a living out of it – I’m honest enough to admit that – but I’ll keep on doing it for sheer love of the genre.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I love interactivity. I relish comments and debates but I also think that most who blog have their own thoughts and opinions and so putting your view across is always going to be an element.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I started Taliesin Meets the Vampires in March 2006 and try to post daily. I have a sister blog, dedicated to my own fiction, that I update very occasionally.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Isle of the Dead (1945), Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter (1974) and Blade Runner (1982) – not all the films I watch are vampire films!
How did you hear about the LAMB?
