The internet is a strange place. Now, I’m not knocking it – I willingly put myself on it and I’ve met some really awesome people (who I now actually hang out with in real life), but admit it, it can be creepy, weird, and just plain funny sometimes.
For example, I got an email tonight from Twitter (who knew Twitter could email?) letting me know about all the great things happening on there. They sent me some stories (mostly about the GOP, which I found odd. Do I follow a lot of Republicans? Fess up peeps.) and some tweets that I might have missed. Like these.
Wow Twitter, thanks! Glad I didn’t miss out on that tweet.
Then there are the keyword searches. I know Paula and Jackie have done some posts on these – and Katy used to post them every Friday, but it never fails to amuse me how people “find” me. Again, sometimes they are weird, strange, and creepy:
Other times I just feel bad for them. I ,obviously, was not who (or what) they were looking for.
(No, I’m just the bitch in this house!)
And then sometimes you question if people know how to use Google at all. When they click on the same image 4 times in 6 minutes you start to wonder (and yes, this happens frequently).
Then there are my friends. People frequently search for Paula. Or someone name Paula Michelle, who runs in Miami and is obviously totally awesome.
They also search for Paula’s blog.
It makes me want to tell them that all they have to do is add a .com and they’ll be there. And that they are doing it wrong.
And then there are momjovi’s toes.
Whoever searched for her toes then stayed on MY blog for 10 minutes. I wonder if they ever found them?? I’m not sure if I should thank her or not?
My top 3 search terms are not as exciting — crazy running legs (shocking!), discussion for In the Garden of the Beasts (it’s probably the MOST search for term – just in different variations), and running inspiration. Not sure how that last one got in there, but that’s probably my favorite.:)
What’s the weirdest thing YOU’VE searched for? If you have a blog, what’s the weirdest search time you’ve seen?
