About Karen Woodham

Since starting my blog in 2008 I’ve met many new bloggers, made lots of friends, via other blogs and this one from comments made on posts and I hope to keep going for as long as possible, so please browse the blog and enjoy.

I had the chance to work with the likes of Brian BlessedThomas NicholasJimmy Cricket and many other great names in the entertainment industry.

Blogging is now a passion that is part of my life, so it’s the best thing I have ever started doing, been able to work with some great brands and people over the years, plus being a big fan of film, theatre and live events has given me the chance to work and play hard on the blog.

Andrew BennettBenspark
Karen Woodham is an awesome writer and easily engages her readers. I often follow the advice of her movie reviews as they are ‘spot on’. Karen has compassion and a willingness to help others, and it shows in all the things she writes and blogs about. I’ve read some of her more compassionate pieces and they show her desire to be a part of inspiring and motivating others with her work
Sally Brown
Karen Woodham is a great blogger. She manages a few very popular blogs and is a great community leader!
Ann Smarty
When I see Karen Woodham has written a new movie review I make sure I take the time to come and investigate. The reviews are not of the critical view or directorial analysis type. I wouldn’t want to read them! instead, they are written by a movie watcher for movie watchers. By the end of the review I can always tell if the film would be a good match for me, Karen has a knack for getting the feel of a movie across in her reviews.
Andy BaileyComment Luv
Karen Woodham channels her passion for films into writing informed entertaining reviews for her website Blazing Minds. Her warm affable style has attracted a loyal readership to her website since 2008. As a long time follower of Blazing Minds, I admire Karen’s passion and ability to inform, inspire and infuse her readers with highly-engaging articles, from blogging and Twitter tips to memes and music reviews. I trust Karen’s opinion and can depend on her to provide an honest review every time.
Lauren SalkinThink Spin
Karen Woodham from Blazing Minds has always inspired me. I love that she is always kind and thoughtful and she’s also very talented musically. I remember when she would blog about anything and really didn’t have a niche blog so to speak. As time went by she experimented with all sorts of ideas but she always managed to maintain her unique outlook on the blogosphere. She does movie reviews these days but still manages to connect with her audience on a deeper level by sharing personal stories every now and then. She is also a bit of a celebrity these days, but she stays grounded and I think she is an awesome role model.”
Karen is a star blogger. She has managed to build a raving fan bases and is known to have the top entertainment blog in wales. She’s consistently excellent and has been around for a while, so her work ethic is some of the best I have encountered.
