Reviewer Time: The Official Blog Post!!

You can review a whole lot of things with intellectual value, starting from books and then moving to all other forms of fiction, comic books, movies, albums and TV shows. But I have yet to encounter an extensive review of a review blog, so as people say I am moving through uncharted waters. The main point here is that these reviews are not to decide the quality of the blog, but more or less to serve an informative purpose to potential readers [if I do get a sizeable traffic for that matter] and other reviewers as well [which hopefully will pay any kind of attention, while “Reviewer Time” is going].

Reviews will touch several aspects such as design, content, its diversity, update schedule and interaction with the readers and being in tune with the news. I will try to give an objective opinion on all these criteria from my own experience and extensive as my time allows reading and research in the blog’s archives. I don’t believe that much into criticizing a blog, which is the equivalent of a person’s inner world and unlike fiction doesn’t have a set standard rules, which a person abide. With that being said let’s move to the more interesting and glittery aspects of the “Reviewer Time” event. After a fun afternoon with my wiz of an artist friend I present you the official “Reviewer Time” picture/poster and banner below. I would appreciate it, if those involved in the project use them in promoting the event. Subtlety is not my strong point.

Now let’s move to the blog-spots to visit. Links can be found on the side of my blog [too lazy to do it again]:

I like your idea and look forward to the results.

You should note that Robert's stepped away from Fantasy Book Critic and is no longer involved in the site. I'm sure one of the other participants would be happy to step in for him though!

Also, if you need to reach me via email, you can find it on my web site. I'm looking forward to my turn!

Michael: Hopefully I don't disappoint in the results, but I will have alot of fun.

Aidan: I have your e-mail address stashed. Thanks about making that easier for me. I am in touch with Robert most of the time, so I know that Robert 'retired', but hoping that as a creator he would make a small time come-back. :)

Aidan Moher said...

Cool, I'd love to hear from him. We started our blogs at about the same time, but he soon left me in the dust.

Hope it works out!


Harry Markov said...

I hope so too. And you are a pretty popular guy as well. :) Don't let that whole who is more popular thing get to ya, because it kills much of the fun in being a blogger.

Aidan Moher said...

Ahh, no. I'm nothing but proud of what Robert created with FBC. He's a fantastic guy and represented the blogosphere admirably, doing his damnedest to bring a new level of polish and professionalism to the game.

You're right, though. As soon as anyone starts turning the blogosphere into a popularity contest, they should take a step back and consider their reasons for starting a blog in the first place!
