I thought I’d try something new here. Seein as I’ve been a bit out of sorts with writing lately, I’m feeling the need to…how do you say?…mix it up a bit.
So, every now and then, I’m going to post a “Featurette”. Did you hear the effective echo in there when I said the word Featurette?
Anyway, Wikipedia defines a featurette as a film whose length is approximately three quarters of a reel, or about 20-44 minutes of running time, thus midway between a short subject and a feature film. In other words, a “small feature”. Thus, Featurette.
Now that we are all clear on what a featurette is, you can be assured that I won’t be showing a short film here. Instead, I’ll be Featuretting a blog or website, hand selected by me, from my very own blogroll. Yes, that’s right. The blogroll over there on the right side of the page…and down a bit.
I have to wonder what people think of the sites I have listed on my blogroll. It’s an interesting collection. Yet, there’s reason and a story behind them all. Whenever I lurk around a blog site, I check out the blogroll and the links. I have to say that sometimes I have questions, and I do wonder why this or that site was chosen to have a special place in the listing. In a “Featurette” post, we’ll take a bit of a closer look at the people and the websites that make up my blogroll.
I do know this. I’ve found many wonderful blogs by checking out someones blogroll. So, maybe this new “Featurette” will connect us bloggers a little closer together.
That was just the introduction. My next post will be the first “Featurette”. Aren’t you excited? I know I am.
