October 2015 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
October we got back to writing more frequently, but we also had some infrastructure on the blog to do (thanks to changing its link structure!), so our output is heading back in the right direction! Our hits were nicely up this month thanks a lot to reviews of the new episodes of Doctor Who, The Flash and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

This month, we picked up several four new followers on Twitter, but no new subscribers! 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 slowly growing our readership, 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 October, the index pages were updated every few days. 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 and feel free to use that as it is a much more useful and organized index to the reviews I've written!

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. As holiday shopping picks up and Black Friday and Cyber Monday loom, if you're going shopping online, please come through the blog to to it. Thank you so much!

The Featured Review For The Month of October is my review of The Martian!
Check it out!

The month of October had a little movement within the month and was dominated by some new television reviews! It also marks the first time since the review was posted that the review for Expelled (reviewed here!) did not make the Top Ten for the month! For October, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. True Blood - Season 5
9. Quaker Oatmeal Squares Brown Sugar Cereal
8. "Family Of Rogues" - The Flash
7. "Flash Of Two Worlds" - The Flash
6. "The Man Who Saved Central City" - The Flash
5. The Top Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Voyager
4. The Top Ten Episodes Of Frasier
3. "Purpose In The Machine" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
2. "A Wanted (Inhu)man" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
2. "Devils You Know" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
1. "4,722 Hours" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

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 - 316 reviews
9s - 466 reviews
8s - 902 reviews
7s - 998 reviews
6s - 922 reviews
5s - 1181 reviews
4s - 872 reviews
3s - 680 reviews
2s - 323 reviews
1s - 218 reviews
0s - 102 reviews
No rating - 100 articles/postings

While there was a decent amount of movement this month, the all time Top Ten remains unchanged. At the end of October 2015, the most popular reviews/articles continue to be:
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
