15 Movie Metaphors for Blogging

Like good blogs, strong margaritas, and celebrities with saddlebags; movies are one of my favorite things. 

When blogging gives me the twitch-eye (as it so often does), I like to step away from my small screen in favor of the big screen.

As a devout blog writer and follower, you already know how blog themes span the realm of cinematic genres. If art imitates life; movies can most certainly imitate blogs. 

I took it upon myself to mash up movies and blogging to create a list of 15 movies that serve as metaphors for blogging. Take a look, share your thoughts, and be sure to let me know any I missed!
