March 2013 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
What a weird month this was! First, with no major releases for preview screenings, I was shocked when - after a very slow month - the one preview I did have, for Tyler Perry's Temptation EXPLODED and we managed to pull our second best month on the blog ever. Given how slow the rest of the month was, this was quite a shock for me! The other big news was that I took some regular work, so my time to blog has been severely cut. The result is dramatically fewer reviews written in March than I would have liked. That said, it was not a bad month here at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, there was one addition to the Top Ten Of All Time and a lot of movement in some of the others in the Top Ten! This month, we put special emphasis on trading and gaming card 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 March, we were able to keep the Index Pages up and updated most of the time (real work cut into that for sure!). 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. We really appreciate all the purchases made through the blog as that keeps us going.

The month of March had a lot of movement within the month and from some interesting prior reviews (The Big Bang Theory Season 5 was one hit away from making this list!). For March, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Finish Quantum Powerball Dishwashing Blocks
9. 21 And Over
8. Warm Bodies
7. Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Lamb & Brown Rice Formula Dog Food
6. Les Miserables
5. Identity Thief
4. The World Of Flashpoint Featuring The Flash
3. Jack The Giant Slayer
2. Oz The Great And Powerful
1. Tyler Perry's Temptation

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 - 274 reviews
9s - 393 reviews
8s - 707 reviews
7s - 790 reviews
6s - 708 reviews
5s - 938 reviews
4s - 662 reviews
3s - 541 reviews
2s - 240 reviews
1s - 164 reviews
0s - 81 reviews
No rating - 39 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month, despite only one new entry into the Top Ten, and at the end of March, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. The Hunger Games
9. Star Trek: Machinations Of Doomsday
8. Won't Back Down
7. Jack The Giant Slayer
6. Prometheus
5. Beautiful Creatures
4. Oz The Great And Powerful
3. Safe Haven
2. Tyler Perry's Temptation
1. Warm Bodies
