Here’s my $.02 about last night’s Academy Awards, plus something interesting I’ve discovered about award shows in general…
It’s called “Live Blogging”.
It seemed the Oscar folks tried to put a Grammy “twist” on the whole show… and it did not work. Every time the singing started, we found that to be a prime opportunity to go get something to eat or chat amongst ourselves. My summary of the 2005 Academy Awards: BORING.
The latest trend in blogging is what’s called “Live Blogging”. It’s where a blogger gives a play-by-play account of the entire award show from start to finish — sometimes, even the commercials.
It’s highly opinionated. It’s sometimes biased. Though it’s often interesting to see another’s take of the same thing that you watched on TV. (Or, if you didn’t get to watch, then you get a quick rundown of all the highlights — from a viewer’s point of view.)
Examples Of “Live Blogging”
Here are some examples of where bloggers across the U.S. committed an entire night to “Live Blogging the 2005 Academy Awards Show”:
That just goes to show ya how big this trend has become. There’s even a whole site JUST to promote everyone’s Live Blogging entries! Who knew???
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
