Dear Readers...

It amazes me how many of you there are now. In just 5 short months I went from having 2 readers (VBC and Meghan) to having lots and lots of you. Of course like everyone else I have a little stats counter that shows me where you are all coming from and most of my traffic comes from comments left on other blogs or google reader for my regulars.

There is one IP address that shows up about 4-5 times a day - but this particular reader never comments. And they live close to me, almost too close for comfort. I wonder if this person knows me, or my husband. But they remain anonymous and that is okay, I won't try to drive them out of hiding by posting their location or anything. :)

Because my good friend Linda over at Brain Cheese did this today and I've been contemplating it for awhile I decided today's the day. SO here you go - search terms that find my blog:

  • Smirnoff Wild Grape - and several other variations including one that says "How old to buy Smirnoff Ice"
  • "What type of test did they do to find out who was a witch in the middle ages." this from a one time hit from a domain in Australia. Hmmm - wonder who they are trying to pin the witch flag on?
  • Middle Age YIKES! pretty much sums up my feeling about it too.
  • Picture of muscular middle age man - for what?
So there you have it - the 4 top searches that find my website on this Wednesday afternoon. Now back to your regularly scheduled afternoon.

Well, I check all the blogs on my reader about a thousand times a day because I am an obsessive blog reader like that...and I am in upstate new york, although I'm not sure exactly how close I am to you!

I'm hoping it's not me, but I fit all those. Haha. Don't want to be freaking anyone out, I just don't comment on anyone's blogs very often...and if it isn't me...well, hello anyways. Haha.

It is you Caiti! Nice to meet you! We are about 35-40 miles east of you down I-88 a small town, my hubby works at the hospital there.

I wasn't really freaked out but yes you are very close and I did wonder if you recognized me or something 1 LOL

Caiti said...

oh geez. maybe i need to cut down on my blog reading a little bit! LOL.
I don't know either of ya, I just love reading your blog.

And well...as a bored college student, I tend to check blogs apparently more often as I should.

*embaressed!*

Tricia said...

No need to cut back Caiti! :) I wondered if you were a student or faculty/staff.

I've never sought out those searches for my blog because honestly, it kinda scares me. But I do love to see how many people toddle by to amuse themselves.

I wrote about my adventures up yer way...

Google searches are hilarious. I've had some pretty strange ones myself.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
