I know, I know, things have been awfully quiet around Castle Blogferatu. Too quiet in fact. Well, there are some good reasons for that. If you’ve followed along with any regularity, you know that I did a “post a day for a year” project. It had…mixed results. On one hand, I logged a shit-ton of stuff about movies I love and did a big ol’ heapin’ heppin’ of word writin’ as a result. On the other hand, I may have burned myself out on it.
The last couple months got increasingly chore-like, something to get done. Kinda killed the joy which I think the posts unfortunately reflect.
On the other other hand, I’d been playing around for some time with the idea of a podcast and finally took the plunge along with my buddy Jorge Mendez. We got some ideas together and launched our first episode, Top 5 Movie Horror Movie Remakes, just over a couple months ago.
And good gravy Marie has it been a blast! I love writing about horror movies, but I really love talking about them, so much so that we’re moving up to weekly episodes rather than our current biweekly schedule. Still, I feel a little bad about abandoning Blogferatu and the three of you who’ve steadfastly read it. Not sure what, if anything, to do about that.
Anyway. I hope y’all will join us at Podferatu. I think it brings back the spirit with which I started Blogferatu in the first place. I very much hope to get at least a couple of y’all on as guests afore long (ahem, Film Miasma and Cinema Parrot Disco, ahem ahem).
Still…there is something appealing about getting to a nice even 400 posts.
