Three months! Hooray!
December 2, 2009 § 11 Comments
My blog is three months old today. Yes, that’s right, today we’re getting all meta. I can’t help it. But since it seems like plenty of other bloggers self analyze their blogs, I feel justified in doing it myself. Ok fine, the truth is I couldn’t think of anything else to write about today. But I promise the post will be funny as well as informative. After all, learning is fun!
I haven’t been around long enough to go into some long treatise on the intentions of the blog juxtaposed against the actual posts and the degree to which they have succeeded in implementing those intentions. Besides, that’s totally boring. So instead, I’m going to list a few stats and talk about the interesting things people are searching that lead them to my blog.
Total posts: 66. Well, 67 including this one. Plus a large number of drafts (32) that I may or may not complete one day.
Total views: 2,758. It amazes me that this number is bigger than 5.
Total comments: 95. Yay comments! I cherish each and every one. I try hard to reply to each comment, but sometimes I miss a few. But don’t think that means I don’t appreciate your comments, cause I do!
Total spam comments blocked: 920. Holy crap! Apparently the internet thinks I need a bigger wang; a lower mortgage; synthroid; a lesbian lover; coupons for a free oil change; and ways to evade taxes.
And finally, here are the most interesting search engine terms that somehow ended up linking to my blog. Please note that I haven’t changed any spelling or grammar:
child insults doodyhead Yeah, cause my blog is full of childhood insults like doodyhead, buttface, fartsnifer, booger licker, and so forth. I’m trying to appeal to all the 8 year-old children reading my blog.
cranky old teacher and joke I’m the 3rd link down! I like to imagine that some high school kid has a really grumpy history teacher and they were looking for a way to really burn them. I hope they found something good.
how old are gnomes? Ten thousand, four hundred, thirty two. Or ten. I forget.
can you be a great tank but a bad healer Absolutely. Unless you’re a gnome. Then you’re automatically awesome at everything. All the time.
stop being cranky Never!
the great gnome conspiracy See? I’m not the only one out there who wants to know the truth! Demand answers! The truth is out there!
arthas vs gnome Winner: Gnome. Duh.
Ok, fairly innocuous, but here’s where it gets weird. I promise you, I am not making these up.
worgon gone wild Those poor ‘worgon’. Always being exploited for their sexy…um…’worgonness’.
wow pamela redpath touching Eeeeeeeeww
jessica redpath doesn’t give love Why do want her to love you anyway? She just lost most of her family, she just needs to hate right now.
joseph redpath fails What is this obsession with the Redpaths and their shortcomings?
pregnant draenie I’m sorry…what?
*raises a tiny glass* Well that was fun. Here’s to three months, and hopefully three more! Then…we’ll see about three more after that. If you behave yourselves.
“[Insert clever sign off phrase here]”
PS: And now for the loaded, super-self conscious, slightly self-serving, all important question (hmm, could I be more passive and wishy-washy? Probably…):
Do you enjoy my blog so far?
