Search engine terms.


Last night I decided to do something I haven’t done in a while: monitor the search terms by which people find my blog.

Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Gargamel (This bad boy generated 138 views so far!)
  • accep tulip (Maybe I could “accept” one?)
  • cyanide and happiness fart
  • toothpaste cyanide (What are you people planning?)
  • thunderbird for cheap pay (Sorry to disappoint you.)
  • farting in the office
  • swine flu cover up for something else (Like Captain Trips? Then you’re in the right place!)
  • luis exposito (This just makes me laugh.)
  • start shaving (How dare you tell me how to live my life?)
  • whole foods ethel (I do love Whole Foods.)
  • professional beauty products (Again, sorry to disappoint.)
  • pugs toothpastefordinner punched (What kind of sick people are you that you want to punch pugs?)
  • alopecia Asian comics (LOL)
  • the factors that influence a consumer to spend money and time at ethel’s.
  • jelly wrestling lolcat (I wish!)

So there you have it. Apparently the people looking for my blog enjoy shopping for professional beauty products online, reading internet comics, farting, Gargamel, tulips, purchasing cars and telling racist jokes about people with physical defects.

Now I just need to meet this Luis Exposito character and my life will be complete.

He's a catcher, apparently.

According to the Baseball Cube, he’s a minor league prospect for the Red Sox. Okay, sounds great, but how did someone searching for him find my blog? I did a Google search, and my blog comes up on the ninth page. How is this possible? I haven’t written about the guy until today.

Now I have a goal in my life: meet and confront Luis Exposito, and ask him why a Google search for him sent someone to my blog.

Stress.


Today, I have discussed stress more than I normally care to. From consoling friends to helping my boyfriend, I was talking about it so much, I started to think of chandeliers.

The chandelier is a carefully balanced piece of art. Each arm that extends dutifully from the center holds gems of varying size, color and weight. The chandelier is the tight rope of home decorating: one minor flaw, and the whole thing can come crashing down.

Life is the same way. If you don’t have everything in balance, or if the balance shifts a little, everything gets thrown off.

And if you get overloaded, the whole mess just falls apart.

Tulips on the other hand … I would love to be a tulip. Carefree, sitting in the sun all day, basking in the rain. Tulips have no obligation to the world other than the elegant display of their beauty.

One of the beautiful tulips my boyfriend bought me today.
