You know, I had completely forgotten about how much fun it is to look through the collection of search engine terms that people use to locate your blog. I mean, here I’d gone the whole holiday season and NOT ONCE had I clicked on my stats page to look at popular search terms. This was quickly remedied after reading the hilarious Leanne Shirtliffe, better known as Ironic Mom, when she did an entire post of one such search engine that linked to her page: 100 Things To Do With a Dead Chicken.
As I perused the latest quarter’s search engines, it became clear who I was as a person:
sound of music cast today
Alright, you caught me, whoever you are. I was in fact Julie Andrew’s stunt double in the Sound of Music. You wouldn’t think of it to look at her, but she’s really an atrocious dancer. Gave a whole new meaning to “How do you solve a problem like Maria?”
The users of SEO also gave me a compiled list of things I’m good at:
I see dead people.
Mrs. Peacock costumes
pee wee rolls eyes at alamo
movie about the play about sardines
master of karate and friendship for everyone
i spoke to my soulmate after he died on the ouija board
hot sully from Dr. Quinn pictures
Many of you know that I recently changed my blog’s logline. I thought that “Where Jane Austen and the Walking Dead Collide” was a good one, but clearly, readers, you would prefer something more like one of these:
Inside the Sideshow Tent
Inside of Pilgrim Houses
Not Eating to Protest My Mother
Those are all priceless and valuable options, so I thank you, readers and fellow bloggers, for enlightening me. I’ll keep the one I have for now, but I may come back to these in a month or two.
Some of you really ought to read through my archives though because I don’t have a clue what you guys were thinking. Maybe you just really want me to be more involved with crafts. I’ll try to do that in 2012 because somehow, unbeknownst to me, these phrases will link you to my blog:
Iranian sewing hand book
Decorating my whole house with crows
Cross stitch poodle
This sure was lots of fun. I learned a lot of valuable things about myself. For instance, I should probably contact the people of IMDB (Internet Movie Database) and request a page for being Julie Andrew’s stunt double. Fair is fair, right? And I should really invest in a sewing kit, an Iranian one to be exact. Got to go, Peeps, I’ve got some poodles to cross stitch and crows to hang!
