October 2012 End Of The Month Report

| | |

This was another very exciting month for the blog! With increased traffic on StumbleUpon (please feel free to "share" the blog pages through StumbleUpon, as that keeps helping new readers find us!) and an incredibly enduring food review that keeps growing more and more, October was a fabulous month! In addition to some strong toy reviews (based upon toys my wife got me for my birthday!), October ended up being boosted by my studies of Janis Ian, Bob Dylan, and the entire series Monty Python's Flying Circus!

We also managed to pick up another subscriber to the blog this month! Very exciting for us and we hope to keep building on that movement. 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 October, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated the entire month, save the days right around the housewarming party my wife and I threw in our new home, 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 continue to support the blog and my writing in that fashion!

The Featured Review Of The Month for October is: The Worst Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! Check it out!

For October, the Top Ten Reviews were my reviews of:
10. Breaking Silence - Janis Ian

4. Here Comes The Boom
3. Star Wars Vintage Collection Kmart Exclusive Endor AT-ST Crew 2-pack
2. Another Side Of Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan

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 - 259 reviews
9s - 361 reviews
8s - 622 reviews
7s - 686 reviews
6s - 604 reviews
5s - 820 reviews
4s - 565 reviews
3s - 496 reviews
2s - 201 reviews
1s - 133 reviews
0s - 74 reviews
No rating - 27 articles/postings

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