How You Find Me On The Internets

I've seen a few post recently, where people share the search words that were entered to search (or be randomly referred to) their blogs. I especially loved the post Lisa at Two Martinis wrote about it. You should check it out, it's hilarious. I bet most people never think about weirdos ending up on their blog after writing about some strange/embarrassing/NSFW topic.

So, besides the obvious search word, which is my blog name (thank you to everyone who's actually looking for me out there), here are the next top three search words:

1. a fairly degrading

Who, please, is entering something like that into a search engine, I wonder. I couldn't even think of a post that might relate to, so I put it into my key word search and came up with this post on the big sister / little sister personalities, and an, indeed, fairly degrading fist fight (yes, I did that!).

2. hello kitty cthulhu cake

Actually, most of the other search words on the list hover around this one. I love it, and it shows that there are more nerds like us around. It refers to a "Foto Friday" post I did back in 2010. A friend's husband had designed this cake full of references about the two of them for her 50th birthday. It's probably the most awesomest cake I have ever seen in my life (and it tastet extremely good as well).

3. comedy and tragedy

It actually surprised me that still 7 (!!) people were referred to my humble blog via those key words. I have written a post on the philosophic equation of comedy = tragedy + time in April of this year, and would have never thought that anyone would ever end up here by searching those fairly common words.

What's in your statistics? If you have never checked them out, you definitely should, it can be SO funny, or even give you a little insight into your own blog or your readership (that may not always be the people who actually follow you!)

Happy Saturday, everyone!


  1. that's funny and interesting. I'm pretty new and I only have my actual web address. Can't wait to check it out again in the future.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jessica! You should check out your Stats on the Blogger Dashboard, that is where all that is recorded.

  2. One of my favorite search terms was "wife swapping." Um, when did I discuss that on the blog? Thanks for the laughs.

    1. Have you searched on your blog for the key word? Blogger has this function, that's how I found the "degrading"-post. What I really wonder, what kind of people are looking for these key words, and what do they expect??
