I haven’t looked into the nitty-gritty of my stats lately because I’ve been a bit preoccupied with getting my book done. I took some time today to see what’s been happening here and it’s interesting as always. I looked at the report back to the beginning of the year. What I found astounds me. Here’s why:
Over 400 searches were people wondering about making the workday go faster. How sad is that? People are so unhappy and/or bored at their jobs they want to make it go faster. I may have to start publishing some actual ideas since my post about making the workday go faster was pretty sarcastic and only gave ideas that would probably get people fired in the long run. It’s funny how we take things for granted, especially our jobs. I still think the best way not to be bored at your job is to actually do your job and do it well. If you’re bored ask what can be done to better the company. Don’t make things up to do and don’t do unnecessary things, be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem. Simple I know but effective.
Almost 300 searches were related to camel toes. Oh what an odd world we live in that people are actually searching for that. Must be a fairly popular fetish (I just threw up in my mouth a little). There were even searches for ‘ugly camel toe’, ummmm, I guess I’m in the camp that all camel toes are ugly so that search seems rather redundant to me. A few searches asked ‘what is a camel toe?’, my post surely didn’t answer that question, sorry about that. All I can seem to do about this one is shake my head.
Seven searches for ‘huge monkeys’ and two searches for ‘huge bugs’. Really? They found my blog? I am 100% positive these poor souls did not find what they were looking for, I think I only have one actual post that even mentions monkeys and zero that mention bugs….well, other than this one now.
Six searches for ‘front door of a freight train’. I have no clue why it is that my blog is found under this search but I know that I did not supply what they were looking for. I didn’t realize people were interested in the front door of freight trains or that they even had a front door!
Another search worth mentioning is ‘hair cuts for my pony’. I can’t even imagine how many pages of Google these people had to look through to find the one that was pointed to my page. I would imagine my story about hair cuts is the one that showed up but they certainly found no use in that story.
Last and certainly not least there are searches for pot pies. Yes, I know, it’s a terrible world where people would actually do an online search for pot pies. I hope that my post on pot pies made them think twice about purchasing any, I’m attempting to save the world one pot pie at a time. Don’t do it people, don’t do it. There are much better things to eat out there, like liver and onions, head cheese or blood soup.
Can’t wait to see what the next few months bring! As usual it will only get more and more strange.
