Searching for something

My handy dandy sitemeter tells me how you got to this blog. I know if you clicked in from somewhere like 2Peas, or if you have it bookmarked. I know if you clicked in from another blog and even which post you were reading on that blog when you clicked in to my blog. I also happen to know if you googled something and my blog came up in your search. And I know the search terms.

I am nearly positive for most googlings, my blog does not give the sought-after answers. Perhaps I have helped a person or two, but mostly I think they click on to this blog hoping to find something that just isn't there (here).

Some recent examples:

Pregnancy scatterbrain (while I definitely suffered from it, I don't think anything I've ever written is going to help anyone understand why it happens).

What's going up wassa (I am very positive I have never written the word "wassa" in my blog until two seconds ago. I am also afraid Google couldn't find that word in many places, thus causing this person to never find what he was looking for).

Chloe Sophia couch (very curious what this person was actually searching for. I have noticed that many people who have a daughter named Chloe also seem to have one named Sophie/Sophia. Good taste, I say).

Harry do you need to go potty (intrigued as I was about the couch thing, this one really has me stymied. Searching for ways to help the dog (named Harry, of course) be potty trained? Perhaps looking for a story they had read on someone else's blog once upon a time? Certainly not mine. The only Harry I care about is fictional and potty trained).

Pregnancy bell necklace (if only I knew what that was).

Modest temple dresses (aren't they all modest????).

Why baby daddys leave (this one made me kind of sad. I do hope they find their answer somewhere, although the internet probably isn't the best source for something like that).

Making our weaknesses and trials into strengths (this one showed up last Saturday night late, location Salt Lake City. I'm thinking it was someone procrastinating preparing a Sunday School lesson/talk on Ether 12:27, what do you think?).

And if you are one of these people who have googled yourself on over here, go ahead, sit down and stay awhile. While I know you won't find what you're looking for (unless you're the person that googled overstuffed lalakme) I am quite sure you'll find something.

  2. I hope you had a great 4th. I will call you tomorrow (Friday) morning (is at your mom's okay?)so we can get together! I can't wait to see you!


  3. I know this is unrelated, but M. and I watched Oscar last night, per your recommendation. It was good! I was pleasantly surprised at Sly's acting ability!

  4. Hmmmmmmmm........ very, very interesting. **tee-hee**

  5. K, did people really find YOUR blog off that googling?

  6. I want the sitemeter too. Kind of cool--kind of freaky. Hope you are enjoying your vacation.

  7. oh too funny!! I seriously have no idea how I found your blog, So if you know, let me know lol I just know I enjoy it :)

  8. I have a site meter tool too, and there are lots of "googles" that find my blog but none of them are that strange.

    At least, I can see WHY they ended up at my blog.

    Very funny. I've been waiting and waiting to write a post like yours (with all the weird links), but it just hasn't happened yet.

  9. ME TOO on the sitemeter!!!! What is that thing & how do I get one & how does it work? Never mind on that last question actually...I forgot it hurts my brain some to even consider how a fax works...

    So LOOK! Go take a quick peek over at my July 6 blog entry, would'ja????? Jill

  10. That is so funny! The internet is a strange and wonderful place!

  11. I know, it is awesome! Love it, strange internet huh?

  12. Okay, I'm probably the one who googled "overstuffed lalakme" because I have you saved under my favorites at home, but when I'm away from home and want to read up on my fave blogs, I can't always find them. So there's your explanation. : )


  13. I would be interested in a site meter info too!
