Martens' Movie Reviews

Movie Reviews from an avid movie-goer

New Look!

As some of you may have noticed, I have been playing around with the overall look of the website, and trying things out. I recently noticed that the idea that I wanted wasn’t the easiest thing to do.

I have finally decided to give this page a bright new look, adding the blue, and changing the layout of the website. I wanted to optimize how it looked on mobile devices as well, since more and more people look up reviews through their phone, and I wanted my site to be inviting, easy on the eye, and hopefully get more people to want to come back to hear by opinion on reviews.

I have now written 34 reviews on my page, and I plan on hitting 100 by the end of the year. If I’m lucky enough to get a job between now and then, it will be harder, however I do have some reviews lined up so that I can keep a somewhat regular schedule with reviews.

Every Monday, I will be posting that week’s review schedule on Facebook and on Twitter to let people know my plans for that week. I am happy to announce that I hit 1,500 views since I started 36 days ago on June 19, and over 1,200 visitors. I have been taking out ads using Bing Ads which have helped a lot as I had a coupon for $100 worth of advertising, and less successfully on Facebook, which I will go into more detail on my next regular Blog post on August 19, 2017.

I am as always extremely grateful and happy that people are reading my reviews, and even though I don’t have as much comments with people as I would like (more conversation = more fun), I’m still having the time of my life writing semi – proper reviews.

This is a short blog post, however, I wanted to give an small update, and let people know that as of right now, I’m extremely happy with the new look, and won’t be changing it anytime soon unless people absolutely hate it.

Please let me know in the comments what you guys think of the new look? Is it more mobile – friendly? I can only know my opinion on things if nobody tells me anything.

Also, I plan on taking requests from people on what movies I should review? Right now, I only have plans for Movies, but if things take off, and I get enough people wanting it, I may move on to TV Shows in the future (2018 at the earliest).

If you want more of a head’s up on my current review schedule, you can always go and visit this link to see what I have planned next. It’s not set in stone, but is the schedule that I set for myself to follow. You can also visit this link to bring you to my list of ratings for movies that I have seen, or ‘reviewed’ on my personal Facebook page and I also plan on releasing reviews for all the movies in that list.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog! I hope you come back and read my reviews!
