I've had this blog since 2008. I started this blog to write about the genre I love best..horror. While I have never had a huge abundance of: readers, followers, hits, or visitors, I have kept on blogging, because for me it's more about writing about the genre I love than being popular.
The first layout I had was a simple two column black background layout with a drop of blood for decor; That just wouldn't do, it had to be more personal, more of a "Me" design. So I started out with a black square, and through the magic of Photoshop turned that black square into a decrepit brick background, completely unique and my own. The pale demon face you see, with it's hollowed-out eyes and mouth, is also my own, and while I AM pale, I'm not that pale, lol, so that was tweaked as well. The vintage movie theater theme is a theme I love. I love old movie theaters, and detest the design of new cinema's today. Put all of that together and you have "Slasher Film Sanctuary."
I originally only posted movie reviews, but have gradually moved into posting more. I'm learning as I go to create a blog that is more and more "Me," and it will only get better from here. While it would be nice to gain readers, it's not all about that. Sometimes recognition goes unknown for years, but if a persons passion for something is strong enough, they will keep going and, along the way, they may someday get recognition.
Their are so many great bloggers out there, and I discover a new one all the time. Bloggers with amazing blogs and personality that are an inspiration to us all. I hope I can continue to blog forever, and I hope all of you bloggers do the same. Amateur bloggers post an honest opinion that is not swayed by money coming their way. You may not always agree with what we say, but you can be assured that it's an honest opinion, one we did not get paid to say to hype up a film for the rich and powerful.
