We were going to hit 30,000 reviews… and then something else hit.
I hope you have been keeping safe.
When I emailed you back in March, we still had more than 300 reviews to go. This week it will finally happen! We’re at 29,988 logline reviews when I write this.
THE SITE IS BACK UP – AND FASTER
As you all know from my earlier rant, this site is a labour of love. That’s why small annoyances are not always immediately dealt with. Hosting a site costs time and money, and there is no monetization other than a discreet link to my other services.
So, recently I decided to bring the hosting server closer to home, and join one of the fastest hosting companies in the world: Siteground. This will result in better visibility overall, as Google loves well-configured sites. If you’re in EU/US, you may notice a slightly slower response time. Please let me know what your experience is. Thank you.
(If the site seems slower to you, just imagine my experience from launch in 2012 until recently. It was actually a lot worse than what you’re getting!)
Most loglines on Logline It are for film projects, past and future. By ‘past’ I mean mostly pdg’s ‘classic loglines’. Others are for scripts our members are writing/have written.
I haven’t seen too many loglines for TV shows or episodes yet. Many shows are hard to capture in a one-sentence logline… but for single episodes it should be easier.
Why not try and hone your skills by posting one? I have created a new genre category for it.
And if you all review my first TV logline, we’ll be kicking that 30,000 hurdle soon!
ONE POST PER DAY
Recently we farewelled one user, who failed to stick to our community guidelines. He would continually flood the site with new loglines without reviewing others’. Fortunately, we parted on good terms, though.
Meanwhile, it seems everyone is really helping each other by reviewing at least 2 loglines from others for each post of their own. Thank you!I had a software plugin developed to prevent multiple postings – spent hundreds of dollars – only for it to break within weeks. Needless to say I won’t go there any time soon again.
And if you would like to support me so I can continue service the site, and learn screenwriting by actually doing it, perhaps check out the offerings on the Immersion Screenwriting course site:
Since we launched the site nearly 8 years ago, our industry has changed, and if you want to write for the screen, TV is your best bet.
Immersion Television is by far the most elegant, efficient and entertaining way to learn how to write an industry standard television screenplay, without forking out thousands of dollars on tutoring fees.
More importantly, it helps you create a habit of writing – every day.
I hope you’ll check it out.
