THE END? NOT REALLY, ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!
I’m putting this blog to sleep. It’s been a good 3 years, but I’ve had enough of this free-for-all format and I need a blog that - this is going to sound pretentious - suits my plans and vision for 2012 and onward. The layout is much more visual, finally allowing myself to blog in a purely screencap-driven way, when needed, yet make my writing pleasing to the eye the rest of the time. I will not write less, but my writing will be increasingly careful and concise - as you can already see with the few posts on there. This is a secondary blog so I can’t follow back and can’t activate replies - and I think I like it that way. If you want to talk, let’s talk by all means - you’ll know where to find me, I’m sure.
The pages at the top will be my attempt at historicizing my film consumption. Give it time, they will fill up quite quickly.
I was going to wait until January 2012 to make the switch but I got impatient, started posting, got to a satisfying level of HTML experimenting - only me riffing on an available theme, nothing major - and some people already know about it so I felt like announcing this now.
Suggested are more than welcome as well! Let me know!
I have to say both bloggers nosex and branduponthebrain were quite inspirational, as far as film blogging format & looks are concerned.
Thank you angelica for the design & HTML tips.
Oh, the adress! Not awfully complicated: filmghoul.tumblr.com. I will most probably get my own domain name in the future -and install comments - so I’ll let you know then as well.
See you on the other side! I’m actually quite curious to see who follows me there!
PS. I will also complete my “2011 in film” list on this blog so expect 2 final posts!
Also, something slightly different: reviews & thoughts might be added below the screencaps retroactively so I’d recommend checking back once in a while through the main page rather than the dashboard…I realise this is unpractical but it will happen!
