Normally I use the Editor’s Blog column to wax poetic (or not so poetic in most cases) about what is going through my mind every single week — the politics of online movie journalism, my love for “Battlestar Galactica” and whatever else has been keeping me from writing other, more interesting articles about the world of film. But as we reach the midpoint of 2008, I think it is time to take a look back at some of the changes we’ve made here at Film School Rejects and gather some opinions from you, the readers, as to where we still need to go.
On January 1, we launched our new design, which seems to have been received well — at least, as far as I know. Since then, we have continued to make changes in the way we deliver content in order to keep things interesting and attempt to set ourselves apart from other movie websites. We’ve added some great columns, brought some great new talent onto our team and continued to deliver more interesting news stories. At least, this is theoretical world in which we live — a fact that has led me to this article. The truth is that in order for us to grow as much in the next 6 months as we did in the previous 6, we are going to need some feedback from all of you.
That said, I have some questions for our faithful readers. Please feel free to drop your answers, as well as any other suggestions, comments or feedback that you may have in the Sound Off section below:
1. What is the one thing about Film School Rejects that keeps you coming back for more?
2. If you could change one thing about Film School Rejects, what would it be?
3. What would you like to see more of from FSR? Less of?
Thank you in advance for all your feedback. As always, please don’t ever hesitate to drop us a line if you have have something to say. Just send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And just as a heads up, keep an eye out for a few kick-ass features that we will be unleashing in the month of July:
On July 13th we will begin our Official Guide to Batman in preparation for the release of The Dark Knight. This will include a look back at the origins of Batman in comics, film and pop culture as well as an exclusive preview of The Dark Knight.
Later this week we will be launching our official Live at Comic-Con 2008 homepage, which will serve as the official spot for our extensive coverage of Comic-Con International, which will take place from July 23 to July 27 in San Diego.
