So I have a sitemeter on my blog. I put it on there like a year ago when one of my blog friends put one on hers and was curious about a particular visitor to her site (Sunnydale, CA, I believe…). I added one and haven’t really paid it much attention since I did. It will give you the location of someone who browses your blog, which is interesting, especially when it’s somewhere far away or unknown…but you don’t get any specific details about the person browsing, so it’s all a mystery, really.
But one time I decided to see how people found my blog. I was entertained by some of the searches that led people to my blog. It will show you what people typed into a search engine that brought them to the blog–whether they wanted to find it or not. These are very interesting, of course.
I checked again today during a break. Here is a list of what people typed into search engines that eventually led them to my blog:
things that make sense:
eckerd youth alternative (my sister used to work for them)
blessings in a backpack (a program at our church)
power lab (our new vbs curriculum)
Philpot, KY (where we take our Operation Christmas Child boxes)
things that make me laugh:
kids hair clip blog (which led them to the story about how I wore a little pink hair clip around one day without realizing it)
How Can I Clean My Cell Phone? (which led to the blog that described how I washed my cell phone in the washing machine and broke it–hopefully they didn’t think that was advice)
fat free gas station vanilla cappuccino
im puking up my baby bumblebee song
ms becky’s back to school supplies
After that, I got tired to searching. Mind you, I wish that some more useful searches would have led people here like: “What’s the meaning of life?” or “How can I know that God loves me?” But I’ll take “im puking up my baby bumblebee” anytime.
