15 Movie Metaphors for BloggingLori Garcia
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!
Mean Girls 1 of 15Yeah, I went there. This one goes out to the trolls.

In Her Shoes 4 of 15You may never know what it feels like to walk a mile in her stilettos but reading her blog is a great place to start.

Adaptation. 12 of 15An all too common scenario for a blogger: Sharing a story others don't remember that way. To that I say, "Start your own blog."

Almost Famous 13 of 15I think being almost famous is way better than being actually famous any day of the week (says the non-famous blogger).
