April 2014 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe continued well through April with a few ironic twists! This month’s most hit review was not the early review of an expected blockbuster, but rather an indie film that pretty much sucked! We were bolstered well by independent cinema reviews as well as new reviews of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episodes and some cool television reviews!

This month was a growth month for W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe! We focused on building our readership and producing some real quality reviews and to that end we succeeded. We might not have broken any records for the blog this month, but it was a solid month of reviews with a decent chunk of reviews in the docket for a continued strong May with some big new movie reviews forthcoming!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, there we had no new additions to the Top Ten Of All Time. This month, we put special emphasis on food, new indie cinema, the musical works of Sting and Joni Mitchell and Star Trek: Enterprise episodes! Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts, as well as all of the new hits on older reviews!

This month, we picked up two new subscribers, which we are VERY excited about. 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 hoping to continue to grow 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 April, 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! Thanks so much to all of the shoppers who have been spending during tax refund season and going through the blog to do so!

The Featured Review For The Month of April is: Divergent, which I was largely unimpressed by.
Check it out!

The month of April had a lot of movement within the month and was (predictably) dominated by new reviews, with some interesting resurging reviews (like How I Met Your Mother Season 1!). For April, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Snowpiercer
9. ”Nothing Personal” - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
8. The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Rise Of Electro
7. How I Met Your Mother - Season 1
6. In Your Eyes
5. The Top Ten Episodes Of Frasier
4. The Top Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Voyager
3. ”The End Of The Beginning” - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
2. ”Turn, Turn, Turn” - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
1. Authors Anonymous

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 - 290 reviews
9s - 417 reviews
8s - 801 reviews
7s - 898 reviews
6s - 815 reviews
5s - 1069 reviews
4s - 776 reviews
3s - 621 reviews
2s - 280 reviews
1s - 195 reviews
0s - 88 reviews
No rating - 64 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month, but there were no new entries into the Top Ten. At the end of April 2014, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
9. Safe Haven
8. Oz The Great And Powerful
7. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bone
6. Warm Bodies
5. Iron Man 3
4. Now You See Me
3. Tyler Perry's Temptation
2. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
1. Man Of Steel
