1. Star Trek Week
That's right, this week I'm trying out a focused set of posts based around Star Trek. The franchise has become so big that I thought it would be fun to watch a lot of the films before the new one comes out. In the future I may do similar things with other franchises, but we shall see if there is any sort of response to this week's subject matter. Currently, I am planning on viewing Star Trek Beyond tomorrow night at a "midnight" (actually 8:30PM) screening. Don't forget to vote for your favorite Star Trek movie by clicking right here. The winner will be crowned on Monday (7/25).
2. Theater Reviews
This is a new segment that I thought would be fun to do after my road trip from San Jose to Tacoma. I had a blast hiking around with friends on the trip, while also getting to sit in two theaters that I had never been to before. With so many theaters around, it can be fun to explore the nooks and crannies of the cinema world. I have encountered many different venue styles, some good and some bad. To read about my cinema explorations, you can refer to my ranked listing if you click on the "Theaters Reviewed List" tab.
3. Guest Reviews and Comments
As always, I encourage any aspiring writers to help me out by sending me any movie blogging subject matter they want. I will read through it and promptly post it onto the site assuming I am comfortable with it. I can credit you with name recognition or cite you as anonymous. At this point, I want some more perspectives on the blog. I currently have no compensation to offer you (this site has made $10 in 11 months), but blogging is fun and rewarding. To submit any sort of content you can send you post to email@example.com and I will review it for posting. I check the email everyday so it is likely you will see your post on the site within 24 hours.
4. Money Money Money
As previously stated, the site has made $10 in 11 months. If you are confounded so am I... Blogging is not an easy way to make money, but it is still rewarding. In order to fund my activities to keep the content fresh, I encourage donations but of course do not require anyone to donate. As you can see, I still do not have a domain and must continue to use Weebly's free hosting because of a lack of funding. I am trying out new ways to gain any sort of funding and it just seems close to impossible. There are ads on the site which are never clicked on considering there is ad-blocking software that everyone has. Personally, I hate to even have the ads up because they clutter the blog with useless and obnoxious imagery. Unless people make donations through the donation form, it is unlikely that the ads will be deleted. If a steady stream of donations were to come in, then the ads would be taken down at my discretion. That being said, check out the donation page. I have added perks such as a shout-out for $3 or mystery swag for $15. Mystery swag would be pretty cool to get and I have a lot to give! Of course, you can donate whatever you are comfortable with donating though and I hope you do. Donations show me that there is value to this site and incentivizes me to write more.
