July 2016 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
In July, I finally began to get back to it! It's a slow return to blogging for me, but one I am excited about. As it is, the blog is rededicated to my reviews of projects and products I am actually interested in! No more reviewing out of obligation for me! (Though there is still the possibility I'll eventually go back and watch/review Agent Carter Season 2!). While I have yet to get into the full swing of Summer Blockbuster Season this year, July did include at least one blockbuster review and a review of the new Netflix exclusive show Stranger Things (and the blog was one of the first places to post a review of the full season!). Regardless, coming out of political primary season, the blog is in a great place to produce some wonderful reviews once again!

This month, we picked up two 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 July, we only had to update the index pages a couple of times. 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 back-to-school spending 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 July are my reviews of: Star Trek Beyond and my article An Open Letter To Donald Trump: You Won, Go Home.!
Check them out!

The month of July was, predictably given how few new reviews we wrote, dominated by prior reviews, though the month's biggest review was from a new Netflix series! For July, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Rick And Morty - Season 1
9. Bound
8. Star Trek Beyond
7. Expelled
6. The Worst Ten Episodes Of Star Trek
5. Quaker Oatmeal Squares With A Hint Of Brown Sugar Cereal
4. The Legends Of Star Trek Ensign Pavel Chekov Hallmark Ornament
3. The Top Ten Episodes Of Frasier
2. The Top Ten Episodes Of Star Trek: Voyager
1. Stranger Things - Season 1

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 - 319 reviews
9s - 480 reviews
8s - 928 reviews
7s - 1034 reviews
6s - 958 reviews
5s - 1221 reviews
4s - 902 reviews
3s - 701 reviews
2s - 332 reviews
1s - 220 reviews
0s - 108 reviews
No rating - 119 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month and FINALLY there is some movement in the all time Top Ten Reviews! At the end of July 2016, the most popular reviews/articles are:
10. Beautiful Creatures
9. Safe Haven
8. Oz The Great And Powerful
7. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bone
6. Iron Man 3
5. Warm Bodies
4. Tyler Perry's Temptation
3. Now You See Me
2. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
1. Man Of Steel
