Anyone who has an opinion about TV or film can write a blog. But what makes your voice unique? What makes your perspective engaging? Sometimes it’s going to be the way that you use language, or how much experience you have in a particular subset of the TV and film genre.
But, if you want to tighten up your style and information presentation even further, what you’re really looking for, is the way to thread details into your blogging format. So, for instance, with TV and film, you can look into technical details, historical details, character details, production details, and financial details. Consider each while creating your next blog post.
1. Technical Details
For a certain TV and film blog audience, it’s going to be all about technical details, and oh my are there some details that you can get into. For people into the artistically technical side of film development, you can write about color correction and analysis on an absurdly detailed level, for example. This is not going to appeal to everyone, but for the people who are looking for that kind of information, you’ll be providing them with the happiest experience of their day!
2. Historical Details
Historical details about TV and film might be along the lines of the history of television itself broadly, or the history or a certain show specifically. Where did the idea for a show come from? What chronological events led to this or that plot line being created, and how do the historical details of the show match with the historical details of the culture at the time, or the technology that became available? Answer these questions and you’ll get a captive audience and a follower who trusts your research.
3. Character Details
Especially for fans of big-fiction worlds, character details are where the fun is at. Think of the character details for the Harry Potter world, for instance. How many millions of people pour over details about the characters; details that aren’t even in the books or the movies, but are just inferred over time or shown by questions to the author of the series?
4. Production Details
Production details are for another segment of TV and film fans. What kind of equipment was used in the making of a production? Where was it filmed? What software was used to edit it? Detail-oriented readers love this kind of material.
5. Financial Details
And finally, for TV and film people who are fascinated with the financial aspect of production and development, adding details about how much things cost, how much actors are paid, and the numbers from box office sales, is going to get you a huge influx of interested readers and traffic.
