LAMB of the Month
Hello fellow bloggers, I trust that the world of blogging is treating you well? I have to admit that it has certainly put a little smile on my ugly moosh. Now, this isn’t a post that I’m used to delivering but I hope it’s something that I will be doing on a regular basis. It may also seem like small potatoes to some but it leaves me with such a warm feeling all over that I could sit and hug myself all day.
If truth be told, I was getting a little burned out with my blog as regular activity and input over the last month or so began to get on top a bit. Since the beginning of October I’ve been involved in my very good friend Ruth’s Blogathon from her site FlixChatter called “Small Roles Big Performances“. After that, I continued to deliver several, consistent film reviews and right through the month I managed to keep it going. I was involved in a couple of fun and interesting collaborations with another friend, Eric, who runs The IPC with his suggestion of a “double-take” on films like “Escape from New York” and “Leon“. Throughout all this, I was still (somehow) able to watch and compile my own personal work for Marked Movies and deliver reviews on an eclectic mix of genres; Horror isn’t something I’d normally be drawn too but I even attempted that and my good friend and colleague Michael who runs the site It Rains… You Get Wet seen it fit to include me in his excellent post Halloween Sundries on the Eve. Over at Head In A Vice, I’ve also been involved in Tyson’s enticing and forthcoming discussion of a certain movie (that I won’t disclose at present) involving four different bloggers. Yes, it’s been a busy month and I could go on and on here but ultimately I’m trying to shed some light onto the ultimate movie site that entices all of us bloggers. Yes… I’m speaking of “The Lamb” (The Large Association of Movie Blogs). If you haven’t heard of it… you should’ve! If you aren’t a member of it… you should be! Quite simply, it’s all under the watchful eye of film enthusiasts like ourselves and, in not so many words, a big thanks goes out to the man with the plan, the eye in the sky, Joel Burman, who has seen it fit to bestow me with Lamb of Month.
I can’t thank Joel enough and it’s little moments of recognition like this that make all the time and effort worthwhile. You can follow Joel personally on twitter @joelburman. Also, a big thank you goes out to everyone who’s been stopping by my site and taking the time to comment and include me in their own sites. I may have missed some people out here and for that I apologise but you all know who you are anyway. Thanks again. Onwards and upwards my friends.
