January 2013 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
Talk about rocking in the new year!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, we broke almost every record we had before! There was a new addition to the Top Ten Of All Time and an all new #1 review by more than four times the hits of the prior #1! January became the blog's most trafficked month by more than seventeen thousand hits! Once again, big movie releases were what intrigued our readers most! This month, we put special emphasis on pet reviews and Myah and Gollum had a tremendous month as a result! Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts!

January also saw us picking up another subscriber, thanks for joining us! We are always trying to get people to become regular readers and subscribe, so if you enjoy what you're reading, please subscribe by clicking on the right side of the blog to get updates with each posting. 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 in this new year, 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 January, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated almost the entire month, keeping it 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!

The month of January saw some serious staying power and growth of some prior popular reviews as well as the predictable popularity of new theatrical releases. For Janurary, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Devils & Dust - Bruce Springsteen / The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
9. Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Potatoes
8. Silver Linings Playbook

5. Celestial Seasonings Sugar Plum Spice Tea
4. The Captains
3. Wear-Ever Popcorn Pumper
2. Safe Haven
1. Warm Bodies

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 - 270 reviews
9s - 384 reviews
8s - 682 reviews
7s - 756 reviews
6s - 674 reviews
5s - 897 reviews
4s - 630 reviews
3s - 517 reviews
2s - 226 reviews
1s - 152 reviews
0s - 78 reviews
No rating - 34 articles/postings

There was a LOT of movement in this first month of the year, and at the end of January, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Snow White And The Huntsman
9. The Amazing Spider-Man!
8. Cadbury Screme Eggs
7. The Avengers
6. The Hunger Games
5. Star Trek: Machinations Of Doomsday
4. Won't Back Down
3. Prometheus
