Blogging Insights NF # 56

Dr Tanya is our host and you can join in here
” Successful blogging is not about one time hits. It’s about building a loyal following over time. ” — David Aston

I can agree with this to some extent, though I think the key to a successful blog is one that also continues to hold interest over time.  The number of followers is irrelevant because many either don’t exist or are just commercial entities who piggyback on blogs for their advertising. Comments and interaction soon determines who are true followers.

30 Day Horror Film Challenge Day 3

Sandman is our host and today’s challenge is
A Horror movie you love that everyone hates.

Well, I wouldn’t say I love any horror film, but there are several I enjoy more than others. It also depends on what you call  ‘horror’.

I enjoyed all of the Alien movies and the Predator ones weren’t bad either, so when they put the two aliens together in 2004, AVP (Alien vs Predator) got mixed reviews.
We have always found that if a movie is panned by the critics, we usually love it.
Such was the case with this.

‘We will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again’.

I then looked up the other one mentioned which is also quite lovely
I just wanted to share…………………………….

Today is Monday 3rd October

My day started at 4am with a cold nose nudge and persistent dog wanting to go out.
She did both businesses so I could hardly be cross and we did go back to bed for a couple of hours.
She’s feeling a bit brighter today, though didn’t want her breakfast, but I gave her fresh water and she still had the yogurt pots before we went into town.

30 Day Horror Film Challenge. Day Two

Sandman is our host and today asks us about the most recent horror movie we’ve seen.

That’s a toughie as we don’t buy DVDs very often now and certainly don’t go to the cinema.
We did buy the complete set of Resident Evil some time ago though. Continue reading
