Everyone has good stuff to offer, and they’re all great additions to the LAMB community. If you’ll click through, I’ll break down what each of them have to offer!
It looks to me as if Sati has been blogging since 2010, but that Cinematic Corner just joined the LAMB this year.
Cinematic Corner has this really cool look to it… kind of a washed out color scheme, and is very visually oriented with a lot of .gifs in use and stuff. I hadn’t stopped by prior to this, and it immediately made an impression. That’s pretty cool, and probably a big reason why it was nominated for “Best Design”.
Sati does a lot of reviewing, but she also uses different days of the week to come up with different types of posts. (As so many of us do, LOL) Wednesdays are for soundtracks, for example. Rambling Fridays – for random topics. Saturdays are for television posts. Sundays are for Horror Movies. She also has several running features, such as the scene of the week, where she breaks down a given scene in great detail.
She’s drawing a bunch of comments, so people are responding well to her blog… I’m happy to have come across it through this process!
“The Droid You’re Looking For” is the blog of John LaRue. In addition to being nominated here, John’s blog has also received two other nominations – “Funniest Blog” and “Best Blog”, the Big Kahuna.
With that kind of respect, you know he’s running a great blog. In order to explain for you what he’s got going on there, I thought that this was very enlightening. Here’s the last four titles of John’s last four posts (as of this writing). I find the mix to be very informative.
Jessica over at “The Velvet Cafe” covers a wide variety of reviews on her blog – in her own words, ”whatever movie related thought that comes into my mind – reviews as well as general ranting”. She has thoughts up already for “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Prometheus” (Grrrr for getting to see “Moonrise Kingdom” already, LOL) if you want to check them out!
Check out her reation post to her Lammy nom, I think that that picture is awesome, AND perfect for the occasion. LOL Nice selection, Jessica!
Jess really makes lets her personality shine through in her writing, you can tell why she’s connected so well with so many Lammies!
“Public Transportation Snob” is the movie blog of Dan Heaton, who I’ve gotten to know through the LAMB and on twitter. I had the pleasure of doing the Jurassic Park franchise look back Lambcast with him, and we get to do another one this Sunday for the MOTM, “American Werewolf in London”
From a bio blurb on PopMatters.com (Which Dan currently contributes), I picked up that Dan has been writing about movies for over 10 years now. In addition to the aforementioned PopMatters, I see Dan’s been a contributor to DigitallyObsessed.com, ErasingClouds.com and SoundOn Sight.org. The phrase I’m reaching for is “Loaded Resume” LOL.
Dan site is focused on reviews, and one thing I noticed is he actually works in Reader’s Choice reviews, I thought that that was a cool idea, and might eventually steal that and work it in here! He’s a great guy with a great site… be sure to click through and have a look!
The LAMB is a great place. It’s a great idea.
I’m sure a lot of bloggers can relate when I say that when you put your heart into it, you wind up getting very connected to your blog. Thus when there’s something out there which can help it out, you wind up very appreciative. Grateful. Aside from picking up a bunch of pointers in the forums, and making a bunch of new social contacts, the LAMB has helped me promote my blog through twitter, the LAMB site itself, and allowed me to gain exposure through the Lambcast.
In turn, I’ve tried to promote it as best that I can, and participate as fully as I can. When big events like this come around, I try to celebrate them and share the excitement with others… so that they can see one of the coolest things the LAMB offers, and would want to join in themselves. I’ve
strongarmed recruited a few new lambs, and hopefully inspired a few bloggers that I don’t even know about to check it out and consider joining.
FMR obviously did very well for itself during the Lammy nominations, so if this is a best new blog sort of category, I think my qualifications in that regard are on record. I hope that if people are voting with the mindset of a “Best New Member”… they’ll keep in mind that I try to be the type of member you’d want involved; active, enthusiastic and evangelical.
