January 2017 End Of The Month Report!

| | |
January got off 2017 off to an amazing start! While there were a couple of legacy reviews that continued to get new readers, the big winner of the month was Netflix's adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events, though near the end of the month the television reviews truly took over the blog! In fact, the reason this is being posted early today is that tonight, we have a loaded night of television reviews (which come after a Blogspot time changeover . . . internal nonsense!). The CW is, apparently, trying to kill reviewers like my by moving Legends Of Tomorrow to Tuesday, which makes for a pretty full Tuesday night of reviewing for genre fans like me!

We have been continuing to adapt our prior reviews so they have functional links and our new reviews are being released with good new links, so products being reviewed generally have the right products associated with them. We appreciate our readers sticking with us through Amazon reconfiguring, which is likely to be ongoing for a while longer!

This month, we picked up three new followers on Twitter and a new subscriber! 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, we updated the index pages every few days, 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 (at least the ones that render properly!) and purchasing items. We really appreciate all the purchases made through the blog as that keeps us going. As tax returns start coming in next month, 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 January is my review of: Marvel Vibranium trading cards!
Check it out!

The month of January was packed with new, highly-read reviews and it is no surprise that almost all of the biggest reviews were new movies and television reviews, with the number one review of the month almost getting into our Top Ten of all time! For January, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Better Made Cheese Waffles
9. War On Everyone
8. Take The 10
7. "Broken Promises" - Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
6. One Day At A Time - Season 1
5. Clinical
4. Daredevil: Back In Black Volume 1 - Chinatown/Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life (TIE!)
3. The OA - Season 1
2. Travelers - Season 1
1. A Series Of Unfortunate Events - 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 - 325 reviews
9s - 504 reviews
8s - 970 reviews
7s - 1081 reviews
6s - 1008 reviews
5s - 1279 reviews
4s - 953 reviews
3s - 746 reviews
2s - 361 reviews
1s - 240 reviews
0s - 116 reviews
No rating - 129 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month, including a new addition to the all time Top Ten Reviews! At the end of January 2017, the most popular reviews/articles are:
10. Safe Haven
9. Oz The Great And Powerful
8. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bone
7. Warm Bodies
6. Iron Man 3
5. Now You See Me
4. Tyler Perry's Temptation
3. The Burden Of Being Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
2. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
1. Man Of Steel
