Site Name: Ikarus’ FilmRezensionsWelt & Unterhaltungskosmos
Categories: Common and rare films, Coming-Of-Age movies, reviews, infos.
Rating: G – suitable for everyone
What is the main focus of your site?
I have my focus on writing detailed film reviews on films of any kind of genre, especially those which are labeled as “Coming-Of-Age” titles. Furthermore, I like to deal with the media in general – that is why you will find information and material about music, television or the web 2.0 on my blog, too.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Well, we all know that it is kind of hard to state WHY we are actually doing all this stuff – since it somehow is like a hard work without receiving any actual salary. Especially in my case, since I often sit hours on my detailed reviews (sometimes I even write them bilingual). But, to admit it: I do it for fun, and because I am totally obsessed with movies in general. And: a friendly commendation of a user is more worth than receiving any money – at least for me ! I want my blog to be a reliable source for infos on common and rare films.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
Now, as I said above, I would just love to receive comments of any kind. The communication between the writers and readers is an aspect that matters most.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I have been blogging for about a year now indeed. Well, I guess that this is not such a long period for some people – but; I will keep doing this to earn more and more experience. About the updates: you can be sure that my blog is almost daily updated. I am visiting my blog at least once a day, to check the visitor number and the comments. There should be a new post at least every second day – while sometimes I am writing up to five new ones on a single day.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Well, these would be: Evangelion 1.01 – You are (not) alone, Millions, and Oliver!
How did you hear about the LAMB?
I heard of this project from a good friend, who also is a blogger.
