Well it has been a long time coming (a month to be exact), but I have finally got everything up and running for the new weekly format. This Pixar week will include some interesting posts all about Pixar!

 

Tuesday will have a post about Bug’s Life and Antz and the problems between the two films.

Wednesday will be a post documenting the early history of Pixar.

Thursday will be a guest post about how Frozen and Brave are very similar films.

Friday ‘s post will be a tutorial on how to make your vehicle look like a Cars character in Photoshop.

and Sunday will be a review of the book Pixarpedia!

We have a new feature named Culture Clash too! Culture Clash will put two things against each other to find how which is the most popular. This weeks is:

Buzz vs Woody!

I hope you will like this new format. I am certainly enjoying doing it. You can find the schedule on the schedule page. If you can help with any future week’s themes please drop me a line at jude@blogblowfish.com.


As you have probably realised I haven’t been posting much since Christmas and New Year. This is for good reason! I have been concocting a new format for Blog Blowfish. The format will goes as follows:

Every week from Feb 1st onwards will be centered around a particular theme. The theme may be about gaming, films, tv, or anything else I want to talk about. Each week will consist of between 3 to five posts on that topic from Monday to Friday. Saturday will be my day off and Sunday will be the day I do my Sunday Suggestions. Sunday Suggestions will be slightly different with me reviewing items. I will review anything and everything.

Each week I shall create a short teaser trailer based on the theme and put it on the Youtube channel. I will also create a custom Blog Blowfish for each theme. Each week will also have an ongoing poll named Culture Clash. So if the theme of that week was something like Presenters the culture clash would be between Ant vs Dec. You would then get the chance to vote for your favourite.

The most important thing is that you can get involved. If you have anything you can add to a theme please don’t hesitate to comment or drop me a line at jude@blogblowfish.com. An interview or quote on any topic will really help. The list of themes until the end of the year are below. Don’t forget to drop me a line.

Blog Blowfish Youtube

Hey All. As you can probably guess from the title, I have created a Blog Blowfish youtube channel. At the moment I will be posting videos containing all the easter eggs from Aardman films, as they seem to be some of my most popular posts. If you could head on over there and subscribe and like the only video at the moment that would really help.

My youtube channel is at:

Thanks.

I’ve Finally Finished

Thanks for waiting for what seems a long time for me to get my act together and create a new website. All my past posts will be on this new site as well as all my new ones. All the links to my old site, www.blogblowfish.wordpress.com will all lead to my new website www.blogblowfish.com. The reasons I have changed the domain name are as follows:

  • A .com Domain Name is Cool Right?
  • I wanted to put some well-placed ads on the¬†new site.
  • I wanted a place to host all my other projects.
  • I wanted to be placed higher on the Google Searches.
  • I really want the blog to succeed and I didn’t think it could with a .wordpress domain.
  • I can never resist to add the Speccy Blowfish as a featured image!
    I hope you like the new layout. I will be adding much more interesting content in the next few months, including videos, tutorials, interviews, guest posts, and other such content. Please add me to your blog roll and I will add you to mine.
    Cya at the next post!
Question Mark

Hey guys. I hope you have all have left your opinions on the Blog Blowfish vote you can find here.

I have decided to give the Thursday Teaser a bit of an overhaul with a completely new way of doing it. Now that I have a BBF Facebook account, I shall post a riddle each Thursday as normal but only on Facebook. You can get a link to the teaser on the top right hand on the blog. This will be updated each week so that you can find the new one each week. If you don’t want to miss out please follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

You can find this week’s teaser on my Facebook.

If you leave a comment and like on the post with your answer if you are correct you could get a mention on next week’s Thursday Teaser!
