August 2012 End Of The Month Update

| | |
I went into August with one certainty; there were no new movies coming out that would make for blowout reviews, so I was going to load as many reviews into the blog as possible. I also knew rather early in the month that the end of the month would mean a move to Michigan and that I would lose a serious chunk of reviewing time! And yet . . . August became the second best month of the blog (if I hadn’t lost so many days, I am confident, it would have topped May for the best month yet). Even so, for a month with no breakout reviews and no movement in the Top Ten reviews of all time, we had a great month!

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! We're really looking to grow our readership, so sharing and subscribing to the blog is an important way you can help! If you’re subscribing, please tell your friends about the blog!

In August, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated the entire month, save for the period immediately before and immediately after the move, 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! Check it out!

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! BIG “Thank you!” to all of the people who supported me this last month - you really helped!

For August, the Top Ten Reviews were my reviews of:
10. The Odd Life Of Timothy Green
9. Entertainment Weekly
8. ”Before And After” - Star Trek: Voyager
7. ”Real Life” - Star Trek: Voyager
6. ”Coda” - Star Trek: Voyager
5. The Flash: Crossfire By Geoff Johns
4. Once Upon A Time - Season 1
3. How I Met Your Mother - Season 1
2. 2012 Iron Man The Avengers ornament
1. Sparkle

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 - 248 reviews
9s - 344 reviews
8s - 591 reviews
7s - 635 reviews
6s - 561 reviews
5s - 771 reviews
4s - 523 reviews
3s - 446 reviews
2s - 192 reviews
1s - 123 reviews
0s - 67 reviews
No rating - 23 articles/postings

And, if you haven't checked out the top reviews of all time, at the end of August, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Men In Black 3
9. Project X
8. Total Recall (2012)
7. Breaking Dawn, Part 1
6. Snow White And The Huntsman
5. The Amazing Spider-Man!
4. The Avengers
3. The Hunger Games
2. Star Trek: Machinations Of Doomsday
1. Prometheus

(For those who are interested in such things, The Avengers is very close to overtaking The Hunger Games! If you’re a fan, read the review of the one you’d rather see in 3rd!)
Thank you again, so much, for reading! Please share links to the blog with friends and spread the word!
