Thank you to my friend in France, Dude The Cleaner, for nominating me for this award. He has his great blog here https://diversfilms.wordpress.com/
My blog started as shameless self-promotion about three years ago. It was the last hundred bucks I had. All I really owned in the world was my musical stage name: Pauly Deathwish.
As my music career fell apart, I dabbled in art and different pursuits. But my passion had been cinema for some time. And so, like my hero Jean-Luc Godard, I hoped to be a film critic…and then someday direct films. I’m still on the film critic part 🙂
My advice to new bloggers:
Connect with other writers. Build friendships. You never know the places all around the world where you will make new friends!
