February 2013 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
WOW! Shortest month of the year . . . BEST. MONTH. EVER!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, we broke even more records than last month! For the first time, one of the End Of The Month Reports had a real presence . . . the January End Of The Month Report barely missed being in the Top 10 for the month! There were multiple additions to the Top Ten Of All Time and our #1 rose by several thousand hits! February became the blog's most trafficked month by more than fifteen thousand hits, which is saying something because last month was such a huge leap over the prior months! Once again, big movie releases were what intrigued our readers most, though Oscar nominees accounted for many of the most-hit reviews of the month! This month, we put special emphasis on music reviews, in addition to the new cinematic releases! Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts!

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 February, 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!

Check it out!

The month of February saw some serious staying power and growth of some prior popular reviews as well as the predictable popularity of new theatrical releases. For February, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Superman
9. Les Miserables
8. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
7. Silver Linings Playbook
6. 21 And Over
5. Warm Bodies
4. Jack The Giant Slayer
3. Oz The Great And Powerful
2. Safe Haven
1. Beautiful Creatures

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 - 272 reviews
9s - 391 reviews
8s - 694 reviews
7s - 775 reviews
6s - 693 reviews
5s - 920 reviews
4s - 647 reviews
3s - 525 reviews
2s - 232 reviews
1s - 157 reviews
0s - 79 reviews
No rating - 38 articles/postings

There was more movement in this month than almost any other since the blog started, and at the end of February, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. The Avengers
9. The Hunger Games
8. Jack The Giant Slayer
7. Star Trek: Machinations Of Doomsday
6. Won't Back Down
5. Prometheus
4. Oz The Great And Powerful
3. Beautiful Creatures
2. Safe Haven
1. Warm Bodies
