Girl Meets World

Learned some funny things about tracking systems this week. I can look and see how people are finding my humble little blog. I know who you are. Haha…actually, unless you tell me, I really don’t, but I am finding out what’s sending some of you here. For instance, one visitor recently Googled “swimsuits” and the poor thing found my whiny post about swimsuit shopping with Preteen Daughter. Another visitor, and you know who you are, Googled “seagull poop” and found my meme last week on Works for Me Wednesday when I pooh-poohed the use of plastic bags at the beach.

I feel like Jimmy Stewart in It’s a Wonderful Life as he paced the sidewalk with Donna Reed’s robe in one hand while tapping his chin with the other saying, “This is a very interesting situation…”

Make no Bones about it, I’m learning ways to be a Survivor, and I don’t even have to leave my House, like a Desperate Housewife. Nope, I can stay away from The Office, and have some Good Eats on less than $40 Dollars a Day, and watch American Idol while burying all kinds of popular words into my posts. More than I Everwood before. I’m not Lost about this at all. Oh, no, I’m like a doctor climbing into my Scrubs, ready to do whatever it takes to give my blog an Extreme Makeover.

I guess you could say that the blog world is my oyster, and I’m in 7th Heaven at the moment. Even if you have to Google “seagull poop” to find me here.

Hahah--too funny. But I gotta warn you, you may start getting some ... folks you'd rather not have stopping by.

I got my first porn shopper the other day. Still not sure how what he was seacrching for landed him on my site. YIKES!!

Thanks for the warning, Beck!

Get theeself a site meter so you can find out how folks are finding you!

Tina said...

well, i stumbled across your blog linking from one site to another.... you have some great posts that sound interesting... I might have to check out the site meter... thanks for the tip.

Very clever. I once had someone find me by googling "toilet paper mis-use". Once I figured out which post of mine that linked to, it actually made sense, believe it or not. But why in the world would anyone google that?

Yup, that tracking thing can be fun.

Yet another thing for this neurotic writer to obsess about.
I just learned from a friend how to calculate where I fall in best-seller stats at Of course I pop in to amazon every day to look at the sorry number of how many books are selling better than mine. I use Stat Counter to tell me who is visiting my blog and Vertical Response to tell me who is opening and reading my e-zine. AKKKK! Writer's face enough rejection! I think it might be better if we STOP knowing all these facts! :-)

I admit I'm addicted to my stat counter. But it does sometimes scare me what people are searching for when they click on my blog.

Julie Carobini said...

Last part of this post cracked me up. Cheap trick, but I'm wondering DID IT WORK? LOL
