Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, PR Newswire selects an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job promoting, contributing, and blogging about it. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tell PR Newswire audience relations manager Christine Cube why on PR Newswire for Bloggers.
OK, you guys. You win.
I get a great many entertainment and culture blog submissions over on PR Newswire for Bloggers.
So let’s start the new year entertaining.
Over the holiday, I saw Star Wars. This inspired me to check out The Movie Blog.
The blog was created in 2003 by John Campea, who began blogging just a couple years prior about his experiences, thoughts, opinions and interesting links with people. More and more, his thoughts were about film. So The Movie Blog was born.
I like this site for a lot of reasons, starting with the comprehensive way it covers movies. The site features news chats, reviews, trailers, posters, and interviews.

Sports in Heels features “a woman’s voice in all the sports talk.”
The blog serves as a guide for women who need “their sports information in a hurry.” The site is managed and written by Sandra Florent.
Florent covers college sports, events, MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL, to name a few.
I have to admit, I’m not a sports-watcher. But I do appreciate blogs that write about things I don’t quite understand, because they force me to think outside the box.
That said, there are several posts Florent wrote that caught my eye. They include Do You Know Your NFL Quarterback?, 5 Things Women Should Know About the NBA Playoffs, and ICYMI: Venus Gets a Tough Win at the US Open. (Incidentally, I do love tennis. Like, looooove tennis.)

Hype&Genius is the music and culture site of blogger Korina.
According to the blog, before Hype&Genius, there was Dream//Believe//Achieve. Korina single-handedly ran the blog, which today features several authors, contributors, photographers, and videographers.

Laughing Squid is an art, culture, technology blog based in NYC.
It was founded by publisher and editor-in-chief Scott Beale.
There’s some great content on this site – and the range of information really is impressive.
I liked a great many posts, including A Giant Mastiff Dog Calmly Completes an Agility Course With Very Little Effort Put Forward, The Remarkable Ways That the ‘Boy in the Plastic Bubble’ is Helping Doctors 31 Years After His Death, and A Lumberjack Tree Trunk Cake With an Edible Axe on Top and a Tasty Plaid Pattern in the Middle. (About that last post: Whaaaaat?? So fun.)
Honorable mention goes to A Pair of Creepy Life-Sized Victorian Dolls Spook, Surprise and Confuse the Commuters of London.
