Joining the LAMB

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 should ideally be date-stamped.
  5. 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.
  6. This is primarily an English-speaking community and association, so if your blog is written in another language it’d be great to have a visible and functioning translation widget. Similarly, foreign language vlogs should ideally be subtitled in English. Apologies, but non-English podcasts will not be accepted.
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 publicize 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 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.

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.

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

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 everyone crazy to see white backrgounds on sites with black backgrounds. Crazy? You bet.

UPDATE 6/28/10: Here’s another one for the horror-inclined, created and submitted 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: If you’re having issues  regarding these widgets, specifically related to getting the images to work properly, here is a solution that has been offered:

* 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 [email protected] 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?

  4. 1920rudy says:

    Good Day, If I gave you the name of my Blog could you please advise if it falls under the rules for selection?

  5. Should we reapply if we applied a while ago (this summer) and never heard back? I saw that you’d had some staff turnover and thought that might affect applications. Thanks, Leah

  6. William says:

    Does this organization actually exist? No one hears back from anyone!

  7. teny says:

    I applied more than an year ago – I wonder if I should apply again?

  8. Jay Cluitt says:

    As many of you have noticed, it’s been a while since any new members have been let in. We’ve sorted out some admin issues and all the pending membership submissions, and will be processing them shortly. There is no need to re-apply, everyone who has submitted their blog and whose site is still up and running will become a member soon. Apologies for all inconvenience caused.

  9. Damien Riley says:

    I’ve heard of LAMB a lot lately on Twitter. After looking into it, I can see this is a place I definitely want to be part of. I hope you’ll accept my application. Thank you for taking the time to look over such an awesome group of movie enthusiasts.

  10. Reid Currier says:

    Hey, I was looking to add a link on my blog, but the link runs off the page on those icons above. I’ve tried it in both Google Chrome and Firefox..
