  1. Cheers for the Special Swedish Edition of Sharing the Blogging Love! Three Swedes blogging in English in a row must be a bit of a record. One more step on our way to dominate the film world. Our smallness is just an illusion!

  2. Thank you for the shout-out! Much appreciated. And Jessica is right on the money: we Swedes are taking over! :P

  3. Hey thanks for the linkage! I've never checked out the CriticalMassCast podcast so I'm giving it a listen now. Thanks for the recommendation.


  4. Yaj now Sweden is dominating in the comments as well. Thanks CS I haven't listened to CriticalMassCast either. Might have to check that one out!

  5. Thanks for the love. It's much appreciated.

    Are these all the good other movies blogs that you read? I'm looking for some more quality blogs that dont require podcast listening..i want to read.

    any ideas/suggestions?

  7. Thanks for the link! Looks like I have some reading to do today as well!

  8. @Jessica - Hopefully I will be able to do an all Swedish edition in the near future. I just need to find a few more Swedish film blogs written in English.

    @Emil - The Swedes are definitely making a name for themselves in the world of film blogging. Keep up the great work!

    @Lindsay - Hope you like the podcast. I recommend checking out some of CriticalMassCast's older episodes as well.

    @Joel - This day will be officially known as Swedish Blogger Day. LOL. Hope you like the podcast, I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the members at a recent blogger pub night.
    @Chip Lary - My pleasure.

    @Phips - Yep, these are just a small fraction of the blogs I read on a weekly basis. I recommend looking at previous Sharing the Blogging post (in the Extras section) for other great articles to read.

    @Ruth - No problem. Really enjoyed you article.

  9. Thanks for the linkage! Pina is great! Dance is awesome! I'm pirouetting and I have two seconds of training to pull it off!

    I've gone back to other "Sharing the Blogging Love" posts but I'm curious, are there a few film blogs that you routinely check/read/look at? It seems that they tend to vary alot from post to post. Are there a few (2 or 3) that you really enjoy constantly visiting?


  11. @Phips – Here are a few sites that I visit frequently that I recommend starting off with:

    Row Three
    Surrender to the Void
    Anomalous Material
    The Velvet Cafe
    Black Sheep Reviews
    Andy Buckle’s Film Emporium.

    Check them out and see if you find them interesting. I can recommend a slew more but I think this would be a good starting point.

    Thanks for that list..I found them all successfully. Now I gotta go through em all and see if I like them.

    I've been looking for other movie blogs similar to this one and I cant seem to find any that I like as much as this.

    I might have to hit you up for more sites...sorry for the trouble. Thanks again.
