It is that time of year again...the Countdown to Halloween. I love participating in this blogging event, because I get to unleash to monster kid in me. The only draw back is that all year long I have great ideas for blog post and then I think, "I'll save that for the Countdown to Halloween." Of course, now that the Countdown to Halloween has come around, I've forgotten those ideas.
One thing for sure, I will have a podcast involving Halloween music. I'm debating whether it will feature full length songs or a mix or maybe TWO podcast this month.
Last year, I had a great idea for a post. It also took up quite a bit of time with some extra research and film viewing (not that I'm complaining). That tongue in cheek and incredibly tacky post, entitled "Horror Film Damsels Who Probably Had Accidents," over the past year, became one of the most popular post from last year's the Countdown To Halloween. I've actually found some more examples that could be used in a second post on this subject.
The most fun I had last year was making Monster Photo Fun post, which were inspired by the old Cracked magazine "For Monsters Only" issues. I made six post of these wacky creations. Unfortunately, it seems those didn't receive very many hits. That isn't going to stop me from creating some more. So apparently, people are not interested in corny captions on horror movie stills, but they like reading theories about the bodily functions of women in horror films.
I found it is easy to pull interesting photos from Pinterest and Tumblr. Of course, video and audio from YouTube is always good too.
I hope you have as much fun reading this years post as I do putting them together.
