This is a very belated fulfillnent of New Year's Resolution 4: Tracking feedback. Short version--Jesus Christ, I suck. I think I was fine until Due South, then just. Nevermind. It's that depressing.

So I haven't done my reading log statistics, because they are really sad and the feedback ratio is just horrible. I don't even have a good excuse. I haven't posted since February stats...Jesus. So.



March
Stories Read: 11
Authors: 10
Fandoms:
--Stargate:Atlantis
--Smallville

Here you can see I bought the rest of the Bourne movies and then read the books.

April
Stories Read: 24
Authors: 23
Fandoms:
--Stargate:Atlantis
--The Bourne Trilogy
--Supernatural

Here I realized Yuletide was a very awesome archive.

May
Stories Read: 24
Authors: 21
Fandoms:
--Stargate:Atlantis
--The Bourne Trilogy
--Anne of Green Gables
--Mairelon the Magician/Magican's Ward
--The Enchanted Forest

Might notice around June-ish, got some DVDs. I renamed June 2008 to Cesperanza.

June
Stories Read: 61
Authors: 2
Fandoms:
--Stargate:Atlantis
--Due South
--The Sentinel

I don't even remember this month happening. But I do remember the fic. 484 of them were Due South.

July
Stories Read: 500
Authors: 132
Fandoms:
--Due South
--Supernatural
--The Sentinel
--Stargate:Atlantis
--Angel
--Dr. Who
--Firefly
--Homicide

This is when I created a tag for long stories and methodically went back to read every one of them.

August
Stories Read: 54
Authors: 27
Fandoms:
--Due South
--Stargate:Atlantis
--The Dark Knight
--Homicide
--Night Court
--Hard Core Logo

Sadly, this does not include a.) fic I started and ran away from b.) fic I just read the ending of for reasons we need never discuss c.) anything I got to put on my Wow, This is Awesomely Bad! List because that's a very special relationship between a reader and the fic she makes other people read so they will cry and d.) anything I read as a prereader or beta, because that is cheating.



I am totally going to graph this entire year come January by fandom. I almost feel anal enough to do it now, but I want to be surprised come next year.

(Question--does it count as feedback if you tell them you liked it at a con? Because that raises my statistics significantly.)

ETA: *facepalm* It was supposed to cut-tag.

I'd say yes, if it was for specific stories.

I can't even do what you've done, I read and almost immediately forget I've read, I've even been surprised when someone responds to feedback I've left because I can't remember reading the damn fic and apparently I've got early-onset Alzheimer's or maybe Rodney's parasite. sigh

But I think it counts. Not for me, of course, but it counts. :-P

Personally, I try really, really hard to leave feedback for stories that knock my socks off (or at least make my feet tingle) and the author has a grand total of, you know, four comments or is a new writer or whatever. I try, anyway.

*pats del.icio.us* That, right there, is why I love firefox for that tag button. Instant memory.

*thoughtful* YOu know, I think I leave feedback almost exclusively for stories that are both good and the author is new, in hopes of bribing them for more. *G* Not always, but its a consideration.

July = ... wow. I have no words. It's not so much the amount of fic (I dread to think what my monthly totals would be. Tho possibly not quite so much as 500.) but the OMG difference between July and every other month.

Just out of curiosity, what is your username in delicious? I'd love to stare at your tag-collection and marvel at the order.
