Lately, I have been spending some time re-thinking the blog … I’ve been happy with some of what I’ve done, but it also feels like time for a change (maybe even time for a new look). The world of movie blogging is such a vast and varied field, sometimes it’s hard to stay focused or to have a clear vision. Admittedly I am someone who can be easily overwhelmed by too many choices, and therefore I think it’s in my best interest to keep things simple and more focused. While I always have a lot going on in my head after I see a film, I think that writing full length reviews is just not for me. I like short, quick, easy and fun (and I think others prefer less longwinded as well). I like imagery, especially movie imagery, so the pics are here to stay. And I like comparisons, as proven by the “from another mother” segment. My newest idea is to have a more clear cut theme, not only so I don’t get overwhelmed, but also as a way to try and be more memorable. I still don’t have it all figured out yet, but the basic idea is for the new theme of the blog to take off of one of my more popular segments, “Today I Feel Like This…”. Today I Feel Like This is a very simple, but easily relatable idea.
So the way I am thinking it will work from now on is that everyday (well maybe not everyday, we’ll see how it goes…), I’ll do a quick overview of all the things I felt that day, as related to film. Each post will be made up of movie imagery, DVDs I bought, films I saw, comparisons I came across, and any particularly striking movie news. But it will all be quick blurbs, easy and fun to read. Some of you may ask, how is this really different then what I was doing before? Good question… let’s just say, I think you’ll get it when you see it. In addition to revamping the style and content of the blog, I will also be revamping the look. I will finally be switching over to WordPress. But it will take me a little bit of time to get up and running, so again I ask you to bare with me, and join me once again when the new and improved “Do You Have a Flag?” is up and running.
Thanks to all of you, for being amazing readers
