To celebrate the one year anniversary of this here blog, I scrolled through some of the search terms that have brought people here. Some made me laugh and/or wonder. Here are a few of my favourites, along with some random pictures from the past couple of weeks.
First Google result: Amazon.ca
If they were looking for information about Riggs’ book, then this isn’t such a weird search. Or these were some parents with strange kids…
guy driving boat
First Google result: “What do you call the person who drivers a boat?”
This isn’t a weird search but it seemed bizarre that it came up a few times. What were these people really looking for?
First Google result: Love quotes
My post: This Valentine’s Day post.
Again, only weird because multiple people googled this and arrived here. I picture someone fresh from a break-up. Hope Google helped your heartbreak.
First Google result: Official site of Movember?
My post: Not about movember at all.
I don’t know if this was a typo or a desperate desire to not see any more hipsters with mustaches. Either way, I sympathize.
engagement gum boots
First Google Result: Fans of Gumboots!
My post: I’m actually not sure. I’ve written about engagement rings and I’ve written about my gumboots (lots) but never have I thought to combine the two. If you are the person who searched for engagement gum boots, let me know! And kudos to you on your romantic creativity!
the absolutely true diary of a part-time indian sucks
First Google result: Some quotes from the book.
My post: My review of Sherman Alexie’s novel.
Sorry you had to write a book report on this book, kid! Hopefully you’ll grow up to have better taste in literature.
chris bachelorette so immature
First Google result: my blog!
Of all of the people who think Chris from the Bachelorette is immature, I’m the top!
poor cowboy the bachelor
First Google result: Wikipedia on Joe Millionaire
My post: Probably this Bachelor recap.
I’m not really sure what this person was looking for. Was there a poor cowboy who was also the Bachelor? I didn’t watch the early seasons…someone please enlighten me!
it begins with canada day
First Google result: hints for a crossword puzzle
My post: The Canada Day Parade in Sechelt.
Doesn’t this sound ominous? Like something terrible is about to happen. Or July is starting.
First Google result: Book recommendations on Yahoo! Answers.
My post: I’ve written a lot about books…it’s kind of a thing I like.
I am so curious as to what book this person was looking for. Please tell me!
slug keats island
First Google result: Keats Island official site? Maybe?
I feel compelled to point out that if you image search this query, two of my photos come up on the first page. Boo-yah!
My post: Camping on Keats Island. There were slugs.
