    I was thinking about my Movie Review blog and I decided that I don't want it to be so narrow-minded. I am going to continue to do Movie Reviews, obviously, but does anyone have any suggestions for what else I should incorporate and/or expand my blog with?

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Hi JBMedia,

    Well, you can have the posts and views about the upcoming movies, ask readers about that how much are they waiting and excited about its release? that what do they expect out of its tailors and other stuff?
    You may have the content like behind the camera stories, interesting trivia, casting, shooting, development etc about various block buster movies.

    what do you say?

    Not bad ideas Bliss. Thank you for your input. I will more than likely be implementing a few of these. However, I want to get about 20 reviews on my blog, before I start adding new things and actually promoting it.

    Anyone else have more suggestions? :)

    Having a good logo will also help. Also to help you in monetization, you can add a Amazon widget there leading to latest movie releases.

    It will be better if you add some poll/vote for your reader to give some score for the movie, this make your blog not just own review but involve your reader review too

    Great idea sigma. Add one per movie so that your readers will also see the opinion of other readers like them...

    What about coupon codes or links to places your readers can get discounts on cinema tickets or movie rentals. You could also update the blog with current movie related news, e.g. a story on the end of the Harry Potter era. Profiles of actors and actresses could also be interesting.

    I see a blank space in the main content area, just below your logo, screenshot below. Not sure if it's supposed to be like that?

    Thank you all for the advice! Those are all great suggestions.

    @Dan - Yeah, I really need a logo, I just don't know how to make one personally and am trying to find someone to make one up for me.

    @Sigma - Do you know of a good WP plugin for something like that where others can rate it, per post?

    @Fergal - Yeah, that's the "Featured Slider" which I haven't decided if I'm going to be using or not, seeing how as of now, most my pictures in my posts are the size of thumbnails. I still have not found out how to edit the things on the right. I'm not used to the way this themes settings are on Wordpress, might have ask for help with that in the near future.

    You can check out the marketplace section for logo design offers. You can definitely get one there that suits your needs.

    yes, that would be interesting for readers.
    Plus, also allow them to have their comments along with the vote.
    Showing comment along with one's vote just like we used to have in orkut if you remember.

    I agree.. I've been getting jerked around with my work recently so I haven't been able to keep it up to date, but I plan on getting back on track and implementing all of these very soon! I'll let everyone know when I have the finished product

    Don't forget to link the trailer for any movie that you preview/review. It's much easier for anyone to click play, than to read a full preview. So if you happen to have rushing visitors, which don't have time to read, your trailers will still keep them on your site.

    It seems that he is taking more time in improving its appearance to attract visitors.

    i'd suggest adding top 10 list of movies.

    something like:
    top 10 for the boys movies.
    top 10 FBI movies

    and so on.. :D
