What is the main focus of your site? For a while I wasn’t sure what my focus was, it was more of a ‘lifestyle’ blog because I wrote a bit of travel related posts as well as film reviews. However, my academic background is Screen Studies and my job is working in video so clearly I love films and I’ve found I have much more to say about films, so my site is directed towards that. It doesn’t have much of a niche at the moment but I’m finding my feet!
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 not looking to make any money out of my blog at the moment, but right now my blogging goals are just to get myself out there. I want to connect with readers and bloggers to up my readership, and get more people following on twitter and instagram too. I want to move my site onto a self-hosted one, more html, and get it looking more professional, really just something that I’ve put a lot of work into and something I can be proud to put my name on and that I’ve learnt a lot about Web Design/Social Media and had a lot of fun doing!
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? Definitely interactive, I want to interact a lot more with readers/other bloggers and hear more opinions.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.)  My site has been active since March 2014, I have been posting at least twice a month since, often more frequently, and I am aiming to blog at least twice a week from now on.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more). City of God (2002)
Juno (2007)
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Name a movie you hate!! Thor (2010)
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? From the LAMB member Rambling Film, she has a link on her blog home page.
Other question I’m also taking part in the Blind Spot this year, as my List of Shame is HORRIFYING, and I’m focusing on World Cinema.
