Hello, dear movie lovers! I wanted to take a moment to tell you all about a few things, and ask you about a few things, and ponder a few things.
First order of business: you may have noticed that I redesigned the blog yesterday. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this new layout. I think it looks a lot more “put together” and does a better job of showcasing the different types of content that I share. I think I’ll be sticking with this theme long-term, but feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments if you hate it! (Or if you love it as much as I do!)
Secondly, I’d like to announce that June is going to be a very special month here at TMP: Adaptations Month. I’ve been working on a couple of posts that I’m very excited about and can’t wait to share. I’ll let you know a bit more about what this super fun label entails when I do this month’s wrap up post. (I think you can infer from the label itself that it has something to do with books and book-to-film adaptations.)
And finally, it’s your turn to talk!
I’ve been toying with the idea of Off Topic Thursdays. I’d still be posting movie-related content on Thursdays, but in addition would be posting something that has nothing to do with the general focus of this blog – a music recommendation, an update on what I’ve been reading, et cetera. But before hopping forward with that idea and potentially ticking off readers who could care less about what I think about books, television or music, I wanted to get reactions from you all. Would you be interested in seeing this type of content on TMP once a week? Should I do it, but keep bi-weekly or monthly instead? Please leave your thoughts in the comments below!
Thanks for reading and, as always, happy viewing!
(PS – Review of The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone for the current installment of Through the Library is coming your way in a few hours!)
I love the new look! I like the idea of you sharing other things that have caught your attention. Especially since you and I seem to have similar tastes. I know I started out trying to be a book blogger but I can’t seem to keep to one topic! I can’t wait until next Thursday!
I definitely want to keep going as a film blogger and keep the central focus of TMP on classic film. I thought about starting an entire second blog where I could talk about everything else for just that reason, but it seems like a hassle to run yet another blog when I could just share things on here a couple of times per month. Plus, like you mentioned, I feel like the people who read my blog probably have tastes at least somewhat similar to my own! Thanks for your input :)
Nice job on the redesign – and I’m really looking forward to your adaptations posts in June! I’ll definitely throw in a vote in favor of Off Topic Thursdays since I love reading about topics other than film as well. I’d say either weekly or bi-weekly posts would be great.
The posts I’ve already started working on for June have been really fun for me to write, so I’m glad to hear that you’re looking forward to reading them! And thanks for your input re: Off Topic Thursdays. :) So far all of the feedback I’ve received has been in favor of the idea, so I may be moving forward with it as soon as next week.
The Adaptations idea is a really good one. You could host a blogathon based on that idea!
That’s a great idea! I have no idea what goes into organizing a blogathon (I have yet to participate in one because my blog is still young and I seem to always find out about them after they end, haha) but I’ll definitely be looking into it.
