For Cinema With Love: Invitation for Guest Articles

guest articles required by a potpourri of vestiges

I hereby entreat my fellow bloggers/writers to contribute guest articles to my movie blogsite: “A Potpourri of Vestiges”. Due to the paucity of time, I am not able to contribute as often as I want to. Anyone interested in sharing his/her thoughts on cinema/movies is most welcome. I would be happy to publish any piece of writing (written in English only) relevant to cinema like movie reviews, essays, articles, lists, biographies, etc. as long as the content of the article is original and previously unpublished. Also, the article should not be directed towards gaining any undue commercial benefit.

 

In the past many prominent personalities have obliged “A Potpourri of Vestiges” with their well-researched, profound, and thought-provoking articles. Here, I would like to make a special mention of Martin BradleyOorvazi IraniSiddhartha GandhiMansi DuttaDestination InfinitythewhitescapeSanjeev KumarSoumabhaRicha SinghAlex Smith, and Jade Waddy.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to share some relevant information about my movie blogsite so as to give a rough estimation of how it are placed in its niche. “A Potpourri of Vestiges” is a well-recognized movie blog, based in India, operating since October 2011. It has been showcased by Indian top blogs it in its eclectically chosen list of Top 60 Indian blogs. It also features among the top blogs in the IndiBlogger network with an IndiRank of 88. I myself bagged the “Blogger of the Fortnight” award from Winchimes for running the blogsite. 

 

“A Potpourri of Vestiges” is enlisted on various major blogging directories/communities including the prestigious The LAMB (Large Association of Movie Blogs) Community. The site’s prime focus is  to highlight contemporary as well as classic cinema—indie, art house, classic, commercial, or cult—by analyzing movies through means of reviews, essays, critiques, etc. and by its coverage of major international award functions and film festivals. The site has a strong and ever growing readership base, a healthy mix of masses and aficionados, uniformly distributed all across the globe.

 

“A Potpourri of Vestiges”  has a strong social media presence, with a considerably large number of followers and subscribers on facebook, google plus, twitter, and other platforms. On an average, the site receives about a total of 35,000 pageviews/month (only recently the site completed half a million hits). While readers from the US alone comprise one-third of the total traffic, the readers from Europe (UK, Germany, France, etc.) and Asia (India, China, etc.) contribute a major chunk of the remaining traffic. Thus, if you want your voice to be heard then surely you wouldn’t be disappointed. If, however, you already are an established blogger then also you wouldn’t be disappointed as you can leverage upon the association as a means to further diversify your readership base.  

 

Note: The articles can be mailed to me at murtaza.jmi@gmail.com. Please bear in mind that Guest Blogging does not include re-publishing of material. A guest post is written specifically for the host blog and is not published elsewhere, but the blogger can link to it, and promote it in any way he/she wants. Also please do include a short bio and a profile pic along with the article.
