[Editor’s Note: This site has not posted new content in over a year (as of 5/18/11) and is now considered a dead LAMB. A moment of silence please…]
Site Name: KidsFlix
Categories: Reviews, News, General, Family Films
Rating: PG (I run all kinds trailers for us grown-ups, and sometimes discuss things that aren’t really meant for the kiddies)
What is the main focus of your site?
Movies that are out of the ordinary for kids. Parents run out of time and ideas and end up watching Shrek a million times over, when there are old classics, foreign films, documentaries, etc. out there waiting to be seen.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I’m trying to provide a service for parents, really. I’d love to be a resource that is used regularly. I also provide news on newer films, such as remakes or new projects that might be of interest.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
It’s a little of both! I love hearing from parents recommending unknown films they’ve discovered, or reminding me of a classic I’d overlooked. I’d like to figure out how to encourage more comments!
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I’ve been doing KidsFlix for about seven months. I try to post every other day.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Oh, that’s tough. Ok, just three … hmmmm: Reservoir Dogs; Scorsese’s The King of Comedy; Gone With the Wind.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
Why should regular film sites link to you?
Because a good chunk of general film blog audiences are also parents, and they’ll thank you! Some people love slasher films, the obscure and the underground, but they still want to watch a decent movie with their nine-year old on a Saturday night.
