Why did you decide to start a blog?
Although my watch-to-blog ratio could never be an even 1, I decided to start writing so that I could record my movie/tv show thoughts and remarks. My reviews are short, and they are this way because I believe a reader shouldn’t spend too much time on one review, because there are too many other good reviews out there to dwell on just one.
