January 2016 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
January was a ridiculously slow start to 2016 for the blog and me. I've been playing video games, working on my business and experiencing the joy ofa new kitten! That made me much less excited about partaking of things like the return of Agent Carter, so the blog was dominated by DC Television Universe reviews. As a result, the month was dominated by older reviews getting attention, as opposed to a whole bunch of stellar new reviews; next month will be bigger for the blog.

This month, we picked up five new followers on Twitter - which surprised me given our low productivity - and one 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 January, the index pages were only once. The primary Index Page, is usually updated daily and 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 the new year begins, if you're going shopping online, please come through the blog to to it. Thank you so much!

The Featured Reviews For The Month of January are my reviews of Blackstar by David Bowie and my article on Why Bernie Sanders Will Be The Next President And His Supporters Need To Adjust Their Tactics!
Check it out!

The month of January was dominated by prior months' reviews! For January, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Expelled
9. "The Reverse-Flash Returns" - The Flash
8. "Pilot, Part II" - DC's Legends Of Tomorrow
7. Bound
7. Blackstart - David Bowie
6. Quaker Brown Sugar Oatmeal Squares
5. "The Husbands Of River Song" - Doctor Who
4. Jessica Jones - Season 1
3. "Potential Energy" - The Flash
2. The Top Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Voyager
1. The Top Ten Episodes Of Frasier

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 - 472 reviews
8s - 913 reviews
7s - 1013 reviews
6s - 937 reviews
5s - 1200 reviews
4s - 882 reviews
3s - 690 reviews
2s - 326 reviews
1s - 219 reviews
0s - 104 reviews
No rating - 104 articles/postings

While there was a decent amount of movement this month, the all time Top Ten remains unchanged. At the end of January 2016, 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
