August 2016 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
August was a pretty tremendous return to blogging for me! We averaged more than two reviews posted each day of the month and we reviewed some big works and some truly obscure ones. August found us playing catch-up on the television shows we review and they ended up as some of the most-read reviews of the month. We also stockpiled some reviews going into September so that way when Luke Cage drops on Netflix at the end of the month, we'll be able to truly be useful to our readers!

This month, we picked up three 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 August, we updated the index pages almost every day, keeping them quite useful to our readers. 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 picks up, 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 August is my review of: Nerve!
Check them out!

The month of August was awash in movement and it is no surprise that almost all of the biggest reviews were new movies and television season reviews! For August, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Season 3 / Legends Of Tomorrow - Season 1 (TIE!)
9. The Worst Ten Episodes Of Star Trek
8. Batman: The Killing Joke
7. Tallulah
6. Breaking The Bank
5. Suicide Squad
4. Spaceman
3. Stranger Things - Season 1
1. The Whole Truth

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 - 320 reviews
9s - 487 reviews
8s - 937 reviews
7s - 1042 reviews
6s - 964 reviews
5s - 1233 reviews
4s - 913 reviews
3s - 707 reviews
2s - 335 reviews
1s - 224 reviews
0s - 108 reviews
No rating - 120 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month, but there was no movement in the all time Top Ten Reviews! At the end of August 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
