Site Name: YDKS Movies
Categories: News, Reviews, Editorials, Humor, and General. We do not extensively cover everything Horror, but will cover from time to time in relation to the previous categories.
What is the main focus of your site?
Editorials are our main love at the moment. However, we do not hesitate to post news stories or reviews for movies that interest us. Anything is fair game as long as it peaks our interest.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Our personal goals include writing great quality posts that come close to meeting our own exceptionally high standards. And by doing that we hope to meet some new people and be able to collaborate on and discuss movie related subjects in some really interesting forums. I don’t think we are quite ready to begin speaking about professional goals. We are small potatoes right now, but growing the site into something beyond just a “ooh listen to me” setting, and one that is truly fulfilling on both sides of the keyboard is always a worthy venture in our minds. We just really love writing about movies, and we will continue to do that for as long as possible. A major goal is to also grow the site in technical terms. We are always working behind the scenes to provide as much improvement as possible.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
One of the themes of our site, is that “We know good movies! Listen to us, and you will too.” However, we really do want this to be interactive, and a place where anyone who wants to talk about movies can come and talk directly to us, and everyone else, about them. We want readers involved in stories, and maybe even guest blogging through us. Similar to what Ain’t It Cool News tries to accomplish by publishing reader’s early reviews of movies.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
We started blogging in January, but we did not become serious about it until May. That is when we started to implement some of the themes and formats that can be seen presently. Our goal is to post at least 2 posts a day (One post per contributor). But the site is always updated at least once a day with a new post of some sort.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
1. City Lights
2. The Monster Squad
3. City of God
How did you hear about the LAMB?
When we met Cinexcellence through the /Filmcast, and started frequenting his blog, I noticed the LAMB banner in the sidebar.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
We are still very new to the blogging scene. But we constantly work on improving our site, and our writing. Me and Wesley speak regularly regarding ideas for the site about everything from new weekly column posts to formatting themes and layouts.
I have been searching through The LAMB, and I have been very impressed so far. Thank you for the allowing us the opportunity to be a part.
