December 2015 End Of The Month/End Of The Year Report!

| | |
December was a mixed month for the blog - between some awesome reviews of new television and movies and having power outages and yet another new cat (who shall join our little reviewing family right away in the new year), we posted very erratically this month! Ending the year with some big new movie reviews, Hallmark ornament reviews, food and the new episodes of The Flash, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Doctor Who that we reviewed, we finished early and took a few days off!

This month, we picked up four new followers through Twitter and one new subscriber (welcome!). 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 December, the index pages were updated very regularly, which was great for our readers! 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 spent on Black Friday, Cyber Monday and throughout the holiday season and went through the blog to do so! As we enter the new year, if you have shopping to do online, please consider doing it through the blog to show your support for us!

The Featured Review For The Month of December is: Forever Evil By Geoff Johns!
Check it out!

The month of December had a lot of movement within the month and was dominated by reviews of new movies and television and a seasonal review that returned with surprising force! For December, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Bolthouse Farms Holiday Nog
9. Doctor Who - Season Nine
8. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
7. ”Running To Stand Still” - The Flash
6. The Top Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Voyager
5. ”Legends Of Today” - The Flash
4. Jessica Jones - Season 1
3. The Top Ten Episodes Of Frasier
2. "Closure" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
1. "Maveth" - 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 - 318 reviews
9s - 471 reviews
8s - 909 reviews
7s - 1023 reviews
6s - 936 reviews
5s - 1200 reviews
4s - 881 reviews
3s - 690 reviews
2s - 326 reviews
1s - 219 reviews
0s - 103 reviews
No rating - 101 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 December 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

. . . which means that for all the growth of 2015, we had no new reviews break into our Top Ten Of All Time!

Thank you again, so much, for reading! Please share links to the blog with friends and spread the word!
