I was once again reading through my old blogs today (this time it was Myspace) [yes, myspace does still exist, somehow], and found several of my old reviews. Yes, I went through a review blogging stage. But, after reading them, I realized something. I'm not cynical enough to be a critic. I don't go to a movie or open a book with the mindset that I must find something wrong with it. I do those things for fun; to escape reality for a little while and be submersed in another realm. Therefore, most of my reviews were completely positive. Sure, I would comment that the reading level was far below that of my usual standards, but hell, the book's target audience was not a college age person with dreams of becoming a writer. Of course, if the movie or book was just horrible, that was posted as well, but in most cases, 75% or more, the reviews were all good. (For Example: I loved the novel The Lovely Bones, and I wrote a review on it in 2008. Now that it's a major motion picture, I've seen the movie, and would have a lot of things to say about it, but still, mostly positive. I try not to be one of the people who compares two different forms of work. Sure, they share a plot theme and characters, but you can't expect every detail of a book to make the final cut of a movie. It's unrealistic. Same thing with video game crossovers, but moreso because they try and add some huge plot theme that was never even considered for the game. *cough*DOA*cough*
I've also been reading through other bloggers' works, and found why none of my blogs really take off, become featured, or even get comments. I usually post about the most irrelevant bullshit that happens in my life (i.e. my failed relationships, parties, ect.) I don't post things that incite conversation. I might start a new blog, one that focuses on "likes" and comments and discussions.
Or I'll be lazy and never do it.
What do you think? Should I get off my lazy butt and begin discussions?
