When I started getting more serious about blogging someone kindly told me about Site Meter. It's a service that helps track visits to your blog.
I have the most basic level of this service (which is the free-you can spend money and find out a lot more!).
Site Meter lets me see how many visits I have per hour and per day. How long visitors looked at my blog and how many pages they looked at.
Sometimes I can see the country, state and city the visitors are from.
Sometimes I can see how they were referred to my blog.
What has been fun is seeing what words people type into google and end up here.
Sometimes it can be a little confusing (and disturbing)
I thought I'd share a few with you today.
Some gave me a chuckle and I hope they give you one too. (and there's nothing else going on today...)
my comments are in red.
~"I'm gonna blow my diet on vacation and die" (I know that feeling)
~"I got disowned now what do I do?" (it depends...if it was your teen disowning you then I say celebrate...you're doing something right!)
~"I lost my high school yearbook and now I can't find my mojo" (poor guy, I'm quite sure they didn't find any mojo here)
~"how to get back at your friend who is a *%#@&$!" (Yikes! I don't think I've ever talked about that before!)
~"the mission has failed, tell Sally I love her" (is this a song lyric or something?)
~"how to disown my daughter" (kinda sad)
~"all i wanna say is that we are going down" (hmmm. lyric again?)
~"things that make me angry" (does this have something to do with parenting teens?)
~"are doughnut trees real?" (uhhh, DUH! of course!)
~"that blog people like in kalamazoo" (I'm flattered but I'm sure not everyone in kzoo likes it, probably just my dear friends)
~"what's that foul odor is Kalamazoo?" (gosh, I glad I'm not there to smell it)
~"skinning a Kenyan goat and cutting up a Belgian sheep" (now that's a little scary!)
***and my all time favorite!***
~"Are there any cool people left in Kalamazoo?" (I know quite a few, actually.)
