June 2013 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
If May squeaked into being the best month of the blog, June was a complete, absolute blow-out!

Built on the amazing success of the Man Of Steel review, the blog had an exceptional month! Not only was this the high water mark for the blog, it is one that will be very hard to top as it was twice (and a half!) the number of hits of any other prior month! In fact, the new #1 review in the blog received more hits this month than any entire month had had before! WOW! In addition to having the very best month of the blog, we had multiple days that ended up being the best all-time day the blog had. Thanks to everyone who read, commented (we WILL catch up on comments!) and shared links to the blog this month.

With Summer Blockbuster Season continuing, we hope it will keep getting better!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, there was only one addition to the Top Ten Of All Time and an exceptional amount of movement in some of the others in the Top Ten! This month, we put special emphasis on independent movies and philosophy articles. Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts. At the end of this month, there is now only one review in the All Time best reviews that was not written this year.

Last month, we picked up four new subscribers! Thanks so much! We're thrilled to have more regular readers and we hope very much to keep growing that! 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 growing our readership this 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 June, the index pages were very regularly! The primary Index Page, which we try to update 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. Thank you so much! By purchasing items through the links on the blog, you sponsor my ability to continue reviewing. Summer is a very slow time for online shopping through blogs, but I have a number of very cool annual events coming up that could use your support, from Summer Blockbuster Season to the Hallmark Ornament Release (which nets dozens of reviews and is a popular feature of this blog!). Please check out our sponsored links and thank you so much for that support!

The Featured Review For The Month for June is the article: Why Shark Tank Might Be The Most Sociologically Destructive Show On Television Today!
Check it out!

The month of June had a lot of movement within the month and from some interesting prior reviews that made the list. For June, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Girl Meets Boy
9. The Dark Night Rises
8. Superman Returns
7. The Hangover, Part III
6. After Earth
5. Now You See Me
4. Hammer Of The Gods
3. Iron Man 3
2. Star Trek Into Darkness
1. Man Of Steel

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 - 280 reviews
9s - 402 reviews
8s - 730 reviews
7s - 821 reviews
6s - 736 reviews
5s - 981 reviews
4s - 698 reviews
3s - 567 reviews
2s - 249 reviews
1s - 173 reviews
0s - 84 reviews
No rating - 48 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 June, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Hammer Of The Gods
9. Beautiful Creatures
8. Star Trek Into Darkness
7. Safe Haven
6. Oz The Great And Powerful
5. Warm Bodies
4. Iron Man 3
3. Now You See Me
2. Tyler Perry's Temptation
1. Man Of Steel
