Milestone - 600th Post
As you are reading the lines of my 600th post, you might have helped this blog to reach the 200,000th pageview of Le Mot du Cinephiliaque #LMdC.
All of this is a work of love for Films, Cinema in general, and writing about the two aforementioned elements that populate this blog.
Just to get rid of the numbers:
57 followers (as I am writing those lines)
In the blogosphere it might not be an outstanding achievement, but I am still very proud to keep this blog running and trying the best I can to promote it and get involved with commenters and other bloggers' sites. As the increasing number of Film sites everyday you have to pick or create yourself a niche to get unique content and a good amount of pageviews. Just like one of my favourite blogger out there Bonjour Tristesse of the blog with the same name, he watches more films than I actually ever will and his foreign/cult film oriented blog is a daily rendez-vous for me.
Finding your niche isn't an easy thing to do. Primarily, I wanted review only current released films and bring some editorials out there. A great example of editorials and articles is John of The Droid You're looking For. The editorials are a thing that takes time, research, and substance. This is one of the main reason why I don't do them as often as I would liked. Since a while I haven't been that much to theaters and I attacked some Classic Films lists that opened my eyes towards many great filmmakers and movies out there. Even if recent releases bring more visits, I tend to review more Classic films than I ever did. So I have not really put Le Mot du Cinephiliaque in any niche. Which makes it harder to get a regular basis of followers.
With all that said, I want to thank anyone who came wandering, commenting, reading, and steal the images on this blog because you are part of the reason why it has gotten an obsession and a pride.
Finally, I would ask you if there's something you would improve or like about this blog that I could considerate and apply? Speak freely!
