Ending this blog

I have decided, at least for now, to end this blog.

Why?  There are several reasons.  Firstly, I have only 13 followers here. Word of mouth never took off to get me enough followers to make it worth continuing on.

Second, movie-going enough to maintain a film review blog is beyond expensive. I just don't have the funds to pursue it. I'd need to have people send me to the movies to review films they want me to review, which would require donations from followers, which, see "only 13 followers," above.

Finally, a lot of times after I do go to see a movie, I just don't sit down to write the requisite review, which is my fault, but if it's not going to get done, well, there you have it. 

I'm sorry to those of you who enjoy the blog. I'd like to continue it, but I just don't have the cash combined with the time and energy to be an independent film reviewer. I'll leave the reviews I have written up, and maybe from time to time I'll post something film-related here. If the day ever comes when I can support it, then we shall see.

Until then, it's been an interesting experiment even if it showed me that there's not enough interest in MY thoughts on movies to continue the pursuit.

  1. Well, you've written a total of 15 entries, with several at the rate of no more than one a month. In my blogs, when I had so few entries, I don't think I had more than 10 followers in either one, so you've actually done pretty well. It takes time and content to build readership. Plus, the number of followers is only an indicator, as many readers will be reading through RSS feeds or other methods than the "Google Friend Connect" method.

  2. Guess I was a bit premature. Two new reviews have gone up since this entry was posted...
