March 2012 End Of The Month Update!

| | |
We had a record breaking month of hits here at the blog!! Thank you all so much for helping to make the blog that much more popular!

For the second month in a row, there was tremendous movement within the Top 10 reviews of all time! In addition to having a review jump up to my second most-read review of all time, we managed to pull in the most hits of any month since the blog started a year and a half ago! In fact, March's hits account for more than 10% of the blog's all-time traffic! This is very exciting for us.

Conversely, we lost two regular subscribers. :( This is disappointing and while we love having slews of random readers, we'd like to build our subscribing reader base. Anyone with ideas, please feel free to comment!

In March, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated the entire month, making for a very dynamic website. The primary Index Page, which is now updated daily, lets you know what the featured review is and has an up-to-the-day tally of how many reviews have been reviewed in each category!

If you enjoy the reviews, please consider clicking on the links in the reviews and purchasing items. By purchasing items through the links on the blog, you sponsor my ability to continue reviewing. Thank you so much for that support!

At the end of March, I have reviewed the following:
337 - Book Reviews
with specialized index pages for:
Graphic Novels
468 - Music (Album and Singles) Reviews
with specialized index pages for:

For March, the Top Ten Reviews were my reviews of:

5. Project X
4. Wrath Of The Titans
3. Friends - Season 6
2. Mirror Mirror

I pride myself on being an exceptionally fair reviewer, but one who is very discriminating. I believe that most reviewers are far too biased toward both what is current and toward unduly praising things. I tend to believe most things actually are average and they ought to follows something around a Bell Curve. Mine is a little lopsided, but not as lopsided as most reviewers I know (who would probably have peak numbers between ten and seven!

For my reviews, the current count is:
10s - 236 reviews
9s - 277 reviews
8s - 481 reviews
7s - 506 reviews
6s - 447 reviews
5s - 621 reviews
4s - 429 reviews
3s - 356 reviews
2s - 150 reviews
1s - 104 reviews
0s - 59 reviews
No rating - 10 articles/postings

And, if you haven't checked out the top reviews of all time, at the end of March, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Ghost Rider
9. He's Just Not That Into You
8. 2011 Harry Potter "Fleeing The Fiendfyre" Hallmark Ornament

6. Anne Hathaway For Wonder Woman!
5. Friends With Benefits
