Note: This is a new venture for me so I appreciate your feedback and Patreon advice. I'll work on the incentives, but after reaching the 1 million views milestone, I wanted to reach out to readers familiar with my blog and ask for their support. Thanks for your time and consideration. 

Since 2008 I've written more than 2,300 posts for the ad free blog Screenwriting from Iowa...and Other Unlikely Places (screenwritingfromiowa.com). In 2009 it won a Regional Emmy Award, and the blog has been featured as a top site by Script Magazine, the New York Film Academy, The Screenwriting Spark, and Script Boutique.

And the blog also received this notable shout-out:

“For a more off-beat look at writing, the Screenwriting from Iowa blog provides screenwriters with a slightly removed take from the Hollywood norm. Scott Smith blogs about how people outside of Los Angeles can have their stories told and sold for production in TinselTown. It’s inspiring for those of us around the world who aspire to Hollywood magic without having to live in Hollywood itself.”

On September 1, 2016 Screenwriting from Iowa...and Other Unlikely Places passed the 1 million mark for all-time views. 

It's my hope in 2017 to expand beyond blogging into producing video essays and/or short podcasts that expands on content creating which spans traditional storytelling in film and television into non-traditional areas such as webisodes and virtual reality.
