Changing up how I report on the Top Ten Line Dances


There is just not enough time in the day…

keep calmKeeping track of the Top Ten Line Dance Reporting lists takes time.  Lots of it.  You’d be horrified about how much time it takes.  So I decided to change from reporting on the Top from Weekly to Monthly.

Up to now, I’ve had a detailed page where I put the Top Ten Dances from each site:

  • Copperknob
  • Kickit
  • World Line Dance Newsletter
  • LineDancer Magazine

On each of these detailed pages I had, for each dance:

  • The dance’s current rank #1, #2, #3, etc
  • An indicator of whether the dance was moving up or down the list
  • Details about the dance, like count, # of restarts & tags, difficulty level, etc.
  • The name of the dance and the name of the choreographer
  • Link to a stepsheet for the dance
  • Link to the music on Amazon.
  • Link to the music on iTunes
  • And embedded videos of the dance, both demonstrations and teaches

Then I had two “summary / review” lists which I created myself:

  • TxCowboyDancer’s Weekly Summary – which basically listed the Top Ten dances as a simple list and then had a link to the more detailed page.
  • TxCowboyDancer’s Weekly Review — a kind of Best of the Best “Most Popular” which listed only those dances which appeared on at least two of the four websites.

Whew!  I’m getting tire just listing it.  The “Weekly Summary” didn’t take that long, but the detailed page.   OMG!

So…  I’m keeping the “Weekly Summary” but I’m switching the detailed page to a monthly report instead of week.

Here’s what I’m doing.  I’m keeping track of the dances for each week during a given month.  Then I use some statistical magic and list only the top ten dances for the whole month.  In other words, only the VERY MOST POPULAR dances make the top ten for the month.

Which means [drum roll please]  I save time and you, dearest readers also save time.  Why?  Because instead of learning a potential of 40+ dances per month… you can look at my Monthly survey and learn only the top 10.  Woot!  Uh-huh!  Doing a happy “chair dance”!

Coo huh?

So.. Here is my very first one that I’m unveiling —

TxCowboyDancer’s Weekly Line Dance Review posted for this week.


There Are a Lot of Line Dance Lists!

Image used with permission of the copyright holderThere are lots of places on the Web that track the “Top Ten” line dances on a weekly or monthly basis.

And every single one of the darn tootin’ thangs seem to have a different way of calculating just which dances are the top ten.

sigh

It’s enough to make one’s inner domestic diva want to take off her tiara and eat bon bons!

Never fear, dearest readers, all twelve of you who actually read this blog…  I, the awesome, the fantastic, the studly, being the kind, generous, friendly, charming person that I am have set out to make sense out of that muddle of mish-mashy information and simply for you.  Can I have an amen?!

Ok, so, what I’ve done, is create two articles on Squidoo:
