Well, better late than never. This won’t be about my pledge to lose weight, be a better person or other things that I should do on a daily basis. Actually the lose weight one is already in play, but has been since like forever, so it is a bit unfair to use that as a resolution since you should always be healthy. I digress, like I usually do, so lets talk about the resolutions that matter. I want to make a resolution to this blog and my fellow readers, which number around 106 at last count and all the other lurkers who don’t follow or comment.
I started this blog with the best intentions, which were to get me to start writing about something I love. Movies were an obvious choice for me since it is one of my unabashed passions. I never really thought about making movies before as my technical eye isn’t the best and I enjoyed the spectacle more than the technical prowess. I tried my hand at writing some short films, but that never came to fruition, more or less due to some complications and the fact that I am not a great writer, which is even more evident through my use of improper grammar and two years of college English classes.
While I never imagined that the blog would be something more to me, I found myself loving the fact of coming home at night and writing about a movie that I love. It was even cooler when people who read my blog, started commenting and even opening discussions about my selection, as if touching upon some unspoken bond. I enjoy going to the movies when I can and writing full fledged reviews to get out to the masses. I like seeing people being excited about a particular film and the general praise of a good review. I like all of this and want to be better at it. I do this because I love to write about something I am passionate about and then there is the other reason I do this, you the reader. You have taken the time out of your day to read, like, comment or share the posts I write about and I appreciate it. It’s wonderful to see others appreciate my work and this leads me into my resolutions:
