Guys, we don't know if you've heard, but there is this new phenomenon sweeping the web called "blogging." We thought it might be a new fitness trend like hot yoga, or perhaps some sort of electric vehicle that doesn't require fossil fuel, but thankfully, filmmaker Christopher Wiegand has cleared all of this up. "I was really more interested to dig deeper into all this blogging/instagram/twittter world and one, help people understand how cool it is to have an area on the internet that is all yours," he writes on the film's website.

American Blogger

Guys, we don't know if you've heard, but there is this new phenomenon sweeping the web called "blogging." We thought it might be a new fitness trend like hot yoga, or perhaps some sort of electric vehicle that doesn't require fossil fuel, but thankfully, filmmaker Christopher Wiegand has cleared all of this up. "I was really more interested to dig deeper into all this blogging/instagram/twittter world and one, help people understand how cool it is to have an area on the internet that is all yours," he writes on the film's website.

So, he restored an Airstream and hit the road, traveling across the country to make "American Blogger," that the (hugely irritating narrator) tells us will "change the way we see an industry" with the film told against "the backdrop of the great American landscape." Okay, then bring on the diverse set of bloggers....oh wait, it's all women....and the movie isn't about America really either. And it's not particularly because Wiegand wanted to make a documentary about women who blog (which would be worthy of a movie), but because....we'll let him explain in this statement: 

The name "American Blogger" came not because I am representing all of America but because I am traveling America ( 40 states)  in my airstream and telling the story of the Blogger. This film is not supposed to be, nor is it, representing bloggers or America as a whole by any means. These are the women that said yes to my request, they knew my wife and trusted that I would tell this story in a positive way. 

Well, that was....awkward. So, this is really "American Bloggers Who Are E-Friends With My Wife"? Guess so. This thing hits iTunes in June if you're really curious, though this trailer may be more than enough.
