May 2012 End Of The Month Update!

| | |
Killed it!

May was a record breaking month with my all-time best day since the blog began! In one day, I got more hits on a single review - Prometheus - than the prior #1! This resulted in a serious record-breaking month (almost 2,000 hits more than the prior record!), thanks for reading!

May had a very cool thing happen. As many of my readers know, my reviews are dominated by film and television reviews. Despite my love of music, graphic novel and toy reviews, movie reviews are the bread and butter of this blog. So, you might be able to imagine my pleasure and surprise to see that the review of Bath & Body Works' Rain Kissed Leaves Shampoo leapt mightily into the Top Ten reviews of all time! For most of the month (until some of the Summer Blockbusters started getting reviewed), that review was actually my #1 review of the month. Very cool!

Four reviews this month made it into my Top Ten of all time!

If you're thinking of subscribing, please do! We are always trying to get people to become regular readers and subscribe. As well, if you read a review that really affects you, be sure to "share" it! PLEASE share a link to the blog, not the content of the article; this keeps people coming to the site and, hopefully, liking what they find once they are here!

In May, 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!

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 - 238 reviews
9s - 311 reviews
8s - 522 reviews
7s - 548 reviews
6s - 486 reviews
5s - 672 reviews
4s - 465 reviews
3s - 386 reviews
2s - 164 reviews
1s - 111 reviews
0s - 60 reviews
No rating - 19 articles/postings

And, if you haven't checked out the top reviews of all time, at the end of May, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Anne Hathaway For Wonder Woman!
9. Bath & Body Works Rain Kissed Leaves Shampoo
8. Men In Black 3
