For Cinema With Love: Invitation for Guest Articles (July - September 2014)

Guest Post, Fountain Pen, Icon

I am happy to share with you that "A Potpourri of Vestiges" has just crossed the landmark of 900,000 hits. 2014 is turning out to be a remarkable year for my film blog. In the prestigious BlogAdda Awards for the year 2014, my blog got featured among the Top 5 blogs in the Entertainment niche. In May 2014, Indian top blogs featured the blog in its eclectically chosen Directory of Best Indian Blogs for the third consecutive year. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my deepest gratitude to all my readers, friends and well-wishers.

It's been almost a year when I had last put up an invite for guest articles on my movie blogsite: "A Potpourri of Vestiges". Needless to say, the response was overwhelming. I hereby once again entreat all my fellow bloggers/writers to contribute guest articles to my movie blogsite. Anyone interested in sharing his/her thoughts on cinema/movies is most welcome. I would be happy to publish any piece of writing (written in English only) relevant to cinema like movie reviews, essays, articles, lists, biographies, etc. as long as the content of the article is original and previously unpublished. Also, the article should not be directed towards gaining any undue commercial benefit. The invitation will remain open till 31st September, 2014. 

In the past a number of  learned personalities have obliged "A Potpourri of Vestiges" with their well-researched, profound, and thought-provoking articles. Here, I would like to make a special mention of Martin BradleyJugu Abraham Oorvazi IraniSiddhartha GandhiMansi DuttaDestination InfinitythewhitescapeSanjeev KumarSoumabhaRicha SinghAlex SmithJade WaddyPratikshya Mishra, Dan O'Neill, and Jairam Mohan.

I would also like to take this opportunity to share some relevant information about my movie blogsite so as to give a rough estimation of how it are placed in its niche. "A Potpourri of Vestiges" is a well-recognized movie blog, based in India, operating since October 2011. It also features among the top blogs on the IndiBlogger networkThe is enlisted on various major blogging directories/communities including the prestigious The LAMB (Large Association of Movie Blogs) Community. The site's prime focus is  to highlight contemporary as well as classic cinema—indie, art house, classic, commercial, or cult—by analyzing movies through means of reviews, essays, critiques, etc. and by its coverage of major international award functions and film festivals. The site has a strong and ever growing readership basea healthy mix of masses and aficionados, uniformly distributed all across the globe.

"A Potpourri of Vestiges"  has a strong social media presence, with a considerably large number of followers and subscribers on facebook, google plus, twitter, and other platforms. On an average, the site receives more than 50,000 pageviews/month. While readers from the US alone comprise one-third of the total traffic, the readers from Europe (UK, Germany, France, etc.) and Asia (India, China, etc.) contribute a major chunk of the remaining traffic. 

So, if you want your voice to be heard then surely you wouldn't be disappointed. If, however, you already are an established blogger then also you wouldn't be disappointed as you can leverage upon the association as a means to further diversify your readership base.  

Note: The articles can be mailed to me at Please bear in mind that Guest Blogging does not include re-publishing of material. A guest post is written specifically for the host blog and is not published elsewhere, but the blogger can link to it, and promote it in any way he/she wants. Also please do include a short bio and a profile pic along with the article.
