Post #396: So Here’s The Thing

Nosferatu ink, Brandon Glass

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.

Hmmm…

  1. “I feel a little bad about abandoning Blogferatu and the three of you who’ve steadfastly read it”. Hey, don’t sell yourself short there my friend, I would hazard that that number is way larger than that, could in fact be as be as high as 7 or 8 or even into the low double digits (which of course makes me mad envious). oh, and I will sit down with the Podcast. 🙂

  2. Glad to be one of three! Seriously though, don’t sell yourself short. You’ve done great work with this blog in the past. I’ve taken a much more relaxed approach to blogging and do other stuff as well now. Your Podcast sounds great, will have to check it out. End of the day, you gotta have fun with what you do, and it sounds like your having a blast!

      • You’re welcome. I’m the same, I love blogging, but only post occasionally now. I still like reading lots of blog – mainstream media sites are just so formulaic now – and I enjoy just popping back to do a post now and then too. Cheers, I will 🙂
