Origins: Let’s Go to the Movies

26 07 2010

As “The Origins Project” chugs towards its end, I figured it was time to revisit an old friend, Caz of “Let’s Go to the Movies,” one of my first readers/commenters.  She runs an eclectic site, drawing from all sorts of sources to create posts that are always fun.  I always love visiting the site and being surprised as to what the most recent posts will look like.

What movie began your love affair with cinema?
While I have always watched films, “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” has to take credit for really getting me into cinema and beginning the love affair.

When did you start blogging?
February 2009.

Why did you start blogging?
I was going to the cinema a few times a week and have hundreds of DVDs, so thought blogging my opinions on all of those films would be a good idea.

What has kept you going?
Getting feedback from people and the great group of other movie bloggers I have met over the last year and a half.

Has there been a particular person (or people) that has helped you along the way?
Again this has to be the fellow film bloggers who’s blogs were started around the same time as mine and we helped each other along the way.

What’s the best part of being a blogger?
When you get invited to previews of films a few weeks or month or so before the actual release. Even if I haven’t been able to go to any yet!

The worst?
When you totally lose being able to come up interesting blog posts, and stop posting for a while – writers block!

Has blogging increased or diminished your passion for movies?
I seem to go through phases depending on what movies are due for release and what projects my favorite actors are in. But overall it has to have increased my passion.

What’s your proudest moment as a blogger?
This is a tough one, I think it has to be when someone says they like my blog as that means the hard work I put in it hasn’t gone un-noticed.

What advice would you give to someone looking to follow their passion?
If its your passion you have to keep it your passion so that means go for it, don’t let anything or anyone stop you.

To someone starting a blog of their own?

Don’t give up! As starting off your blog has to be the most difficult time. Just keep working at it, and read other peoples blogs. Don’t be afraid to ask fellow bloggers for advice.
