Joining the LAMB

Eligibly requirements for joining the LAMB and sustaining your membership

  1. Your blog/podcast/vlog should mainly be about film or a film niche. For example we have members that blog about fashion and cooking from a film perspective.
  2. Your blog/podcast/vlog must have been active for at least four months.
  3. Your blog/podcast/vlog must have at least 30 entries.
  4. Your posts need to be date-stamped.
  5. If you RUN a rivaling film blog directory/association your application will be declined. The same goes if you decide to start a rivaling film blog directory/association after becoming a LAMB member.
  6. If you endorse illegal activities like pirating or torrenting on your blog/podcast/vlog, your application will be denied and our legal department may report your site to authorities dealing with film-piracy.
  7. You are not required to blog in English but I expect you to have a visible translation widget that WORKS if you blog in another language than English.
  8. I will not accept podcasts in foreign languages.
  9. I will accept vlogs in foreign languages if you also submit your own subtitles (YouTube’s automated ones is not valid).
If any of the points above are abused by a current member we reserve the right to revoke your membership. Also your membership will be revoked if you stop blogging. A blog is considered dead if you haven’t posted an update in six months.
 
By submitting your entry for a LAMB membership you consent to fulfilling the above points and you also give us the right to publisize links and excerpts to your blogposts/podcasts/vlogs in all our channels, mainly the LAMBsite/twitter/youtube/facebook/the Daily LAMB/the LAMB letter.

Enough with the legalese. If you’d like to join, simply fill out the form below:

(After submitting correctly, you’ll get an automated e-mail reply stating how long time we estimate for your application to process, it varies through-out the year)

Also, it should go without saying, but please put up a link to the LAMB on your site as well.

Well, unless you’re blind and/or really hungover, you’ve noticed that there are some aesthetic changes to the LAMB that have been made recently. Though I’m still working on a couple things (I’m no programmer), the new look is pretty much intact, and as a big bonus, the wonderful Mrs. Fletch has helped the LAMB out in a big way, crafting the buttons you see below, as well as the header you see above. (Mrs. Fletch co-owns a graphic design business called Ripe Creative, by the way – here’s their site.)

Anyway, as many of you had suggested (and I had planned to do at…some point), here is an array of buttons for you to choose from that can be posted on your site(s). It’s the same deal as any of those buttons from any of the myriad blog directories – just grab the code listed below the one you like and paste into an HTML text box or link list (you can figure it out) and voila! A linked button to the LAMB. I’ll be putting some text on my sidebar that links to this post for future use by either you or any future LAMBs.

ETA: If you’re on WordPress and having issues with any of these widgets, see comments at the bottom of this post.

Thanks again to Mrs. Fletch, and let me know if you guys or gals have any other LAMB suggestions.

UPDATE 2/2/08: For those of you with black backgrounds on your site(s), here are some buttons with, uh, black backgrounds. It was driving Mrs. Fletch and I (and probably you) crazy to see white backrgounds on sites with black backgrounds. Crazy? You bet.

UPDATE 8/25/08: For those of you with backgrounds that aren’t black or white, this button will blend to whatever background color you have (Thanks go out to Dreamrot of $7 Popcorn).

UPDATE 6/28/10: Here’s another one for the horror-inclined, created and submitted to me by Chris of Unflinching Eye. It features an image from the film Black Sheep (as I believe the one above does as well).

UPDATE 10/14/10: Here’s another one, this time for those folks that might like to include a LAMB logo alongside their Twitter/Facebook/other social networking icons. This one was altered by the designers over at Bestforfilm.com – thanks!

WordPress bloggers: I’ve heard of some issues regarding these widgets, specifically related to getting the images to work properly. Here is a solution that has been offered that I’ve heard works:

* Go in Appearance > Widget. Make a new Text Widget in sidebar, paste code into that. Best is to save the picture, upload it by going to “Media” then grab the link and paste that inside the code instead of the old link.

If you have any questions or comments, send them to largeassmovieblogs@gmail.com or leave a comment below. Thanks!

    “Also your membership will be revoked if you stop blogging. A blog is considered dead if you haven’t posted an update in six months.”

    Is there a system to check this? I’ve come across a few sites that have stopped blogging for over a year.

    Can I help in any way?

  2. Azevedo says:

    I submitted my blog a few months ago, but haven’t heard from you guys. Something wrong?

  3. I submitted my blog to several months ago. Is there a way to check the status?

  1. [...] only LAMB members can vote, so if you’re not a member already, I suggest heading over to the site and putting in your application to get ready for next year. I can only say great things about the [...]
