Three Must Read Articles About The Horror Blogging Community

I was gonna just slap these up on the Hit List on the sidebar but I think they deserve the full post treatment and so, they're gonna get it. A couple great articles about horror blogs and the importance of them came out this past weekend and i'd like to share them with you guys, along with an older one that I did actually put on the Hit List a month or so back. It's articles like these that make me proud to be a part of the awesome horror blogging community.

Fangoria - The Importance of Horror Blogging

Being that most of the bigger horror sites out there focus mainly on news, horror blogs are the best place to go for everything else and that makes them a pretty important and integral part of the horror community. That is precisely the topic of conversation in this great article written by Brad McHargue of the blog I Love Horror. Thank you Brad for increasing the exposure of horror blogs on such a big outlet as Fangoria.

The Vault of Horror - Horror Blogs You Should Be Reading

After reading the above article on Fango, The Vault's B-Sol whipped up a nice list of his personal favorite horror blogs. If you're looking for some awesome blogs to add to your reading list, this is the place to go. Thanks again B-Sol for the mention and link.

Day of the Woman - Why The Horror Blogging Community Is The Coolest

And lastly we have this post from last month by BJ-C, B-Sol's partner in crime. The horror blogging community is in fact an awesome tight knit group and here are seven reasons why.

Feel free to leave a comment with a link to your own horror blog or links to your personal favorites. If you do post a link to your own, I can promise I will follow it and add it to my daily reading list!

Dude. You inspired me to check these other blogs out and see what else I've been missing.

Good article. We're a small but vocal community.

Long live the horrorsphere!

B-Sol said...

Dammit, I feel a round of "Kumbaya" comin' on...

But yeah, in all seriousness, the pleasure was all mine. This is a fine blog, and certainly LoTT-D bound.

Group hug.

Video Updates casts too wide of a net to be considered a dedicated "Horror Blog", but since the genre makes up about 80% of the best "weird cinema" out there, it might as well be.

I think everything posted made a great deal of sense. However, think about this, suppose you added a
little information? I ain't saying your information is not good., but what if you added a post title that grabbed folk's attention?

I mean "Three Must Read Articles About The Horror Blogging Community" is a little boring.
You might glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
