I’m sure that everyone who has a blog has at some point been enamored by the analytics – the back end information that your blogging platform provides. Personally, I can’t stop checking the stats to see how many people have visited, who has commented, and what links they’ve clicked on. I am also really intrigued by the search terms that people use to find me. I know that I’m not the only one who has been entertained by this unique and sometimes inconceivable conglomeration of words.
I’ve been keeping a bit of a running list of some of the more entertaining terms. This list is amusing and provides a bit of levity, but I’ve also been thinking about how it could become more useful. I want to try a bit of a new feature on the blog. I started this blog posting several times a week with recipes, drawings, and bits about life. Over the last couple of months, the posts have become less and less frequent. What can I say, except that summer is in full swing. I’ve been having a hard time focusing on blogging and cooking. Living on the third floor of a house, sometimes just thinking about turning on my oven makes me feel hot. So I’ve been cooking less and eating more salads. Salads do not usually require a recipe and certainly won’t always be the most entertaining thing to read about. Yet, I don’t want to leave posts by the wayside. I also have had a hard time coming up with ideas for my little cartoons. The heat must be affecting my brain. Yet combine these wayward thoughts and I’ve just discovered an endless supply of cartoon inspiration! I call this the first installment of “Strange Search Terms.”
This might be an occasional or summer-only feature, but I hope to keep myself chuckling, and perhaps keep my readers entertained, too. So if my salads are not dazzling enough to blog about, I hope you’ll keep visiting to see what type of strange search terms helped people get here, and what drawing that term inspired.
