Blogging is not something I do in a vacuum. Writing for the sole sake of writing can certainly be admirable, but it’s not what I do. No, to blog is to communicate, and one can’t communicate alone. Well, you can, but it’s kind of weird. Anyway, what I’m trying to get at is that the wonderful thing about having a blog is to get comments on what you’ve writting and partaking in discussions that can spring forth from it. Most people who comment here have movie blogs of their own, and I’d like to take this time to highlight two of them that I enjoy following.
First up we have Front Room Cinema, by Scott Lawlor. Scott puts a lot of time and effort into his blogging, both in terms of writing, tinkering with design, reading and commenting on what others have said. His blog has a wide variety of content, from reviews and lists to contests and general musings. He has also found a niche that few others film bloggers really deal much with: in-depth guides and help on how to set up an ideal home cinema. Front Room Cinema is a very fun blog with a very ambitious (and friendly!) manager.
The second one is The Velvet Café, by Jessica. Like myself, she’s a Swede who blogs in English. Her blog focuses mostly on movie reviews, and what makes it great is how she always injects a personal angle in her writing that makes it a joy to read. It’s a style I wish I could use more in my own blog posts, so far with no luck. Good thing The Velvet Café is there to continue to inspire me.
Also check out all the other wonderful bloggers on the Blogroll in the sidebar to the right. They’re all there for a reason and deserve all the attention in the world.
