I have to admit, I am pretty technologically challenged. I’ve had this blog for almost a year and I’ve never figured out how to read its stats properly. I’ve always been really jealous of other bloggers who’ve been able to spout out their number of daily, monthly, yearly page views. I’ve laughed so hard I’ve cried when other bloggers have shared internet search terms (think Google) that landed someone at their blog. While wiping the tears from my eyes, I’ve thought, “Hey! How do they know that?”
I can’t explain why, but I’d never, ever seen a search term used to find my blog. That is, until this week. I made some minor tweaks here and there to the blog and in the process figured out how to view my statistics. I’m a little slow, what can I say.
If this is what I have to look forward to from here to the eternity of this blog, my work here is done. In just a 48 hour period, I’ve laughed and cried at how perfect strangers found themselves at Life Happens When. Here I share with you my most favorite searches (in bold) and what I wish I could say to them.
What happens if you have been eating processed food all your life?
Umm, I’m not quite sure. I’ll ask my husband when he’s 87. I kid, I kid.
I need a little faith in my life right now.
Well that makes at least two of us, then. Am I right?
What to expect at your first Jimmy Buffett concert
Bless your heart. Do I have some stories I could tell you!? I have a lot of theories about Buffett concerts. My most current one: If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.
What thanksgiving means to me
I’m assuming you found what thanksgiving means to me. I have no earthly clue what it means to you. It’s kind of personal don’t you think?
How to fight through pain
My mother in front of camera
I really am just not sure where to go with this one. So I’ll just move on…
What to say in silence
So people really are finding this little corner of the internet? How fascinating. And strange. I hope I was able to help them in some way.
On a related (and equally fascinating and strange) note, I recently Googled, “Is the soybean oil in Triscuits bad for you?” Guess where it took me first!?!? It seems no one else in the blogosphere is as concerned about this as I am.
Question for you: What is the funniest or strangest thing you’ve searched for on the Internet? Keep it clean, folks! Life Happens When is G rated!
Life happens when we find (or don’t find) what we are searching for.
