Odd News

Do any of you fellow bloggers ever look at the “Referrers” section in your Site Stats?    As I perused my stats and maneuvered chopsticks over lunch today, I noticed a website called “Odd News“.   This sparked my interest, and I clicked on the link.  The person who noticed my blog name on the WordPress link had apparently been reading a story about a woman who fell 23 stories, landed on a taxi cab and survived.    There’s a terrible little picture of her still laying on the vehicle.  

Well, what else was out there?  The next one was about Hitler’s oldest and last surviving bodyguard who is no longer responding to fan mail.  Bizarre.  Almost choked on my Dynamite Roll after reading that. 

Yesterday I had a referral from an online dating website.  It’s so strange to me where your blog may randomly be advertised.    Others, in the past 30 days, include websites for:

“adult” dating
prostate cancer treatment (cause I need that…)
home improvement
hair color and treatments

Mostly, though, the referring websites are other blogs that I follow.  People find me through the comments I leave on other pages.   So, for new bloggers this is a good tip!  Show interest in others, and you’ll get more traffic on your own site. 

Speaking of Site Stats, I have an updated list of favorite terms that people typed into search engines to get to my blog. 

surviving the apocalypse
algebra calculators
дикие животные  (again!)
fat cat paws
sister snatch
open mouthed shell
and what should my wondering eyes appear
fable 2 how to open doors with purple light
blessed snow
you talking to me
sniegas
jolean pulled
space

Happy almost Friday!    Without any homework to do this weekend, I’ll actually be able to get out and take some new pictures!
