After the past three days of densely worded prose, I need to focus on something a little lighter. I’m sorry those past three posts were so long. Sometimes I have a tough time articulating what I want to say and I just keep writing until I get it all out.
In other news, I checked my sitemeter recently, the place that shows how many people are reading my blog posts. The fun part of the sitemeter isn’t seeing the incredibly small number of readers one has. The fun of the sitemeter is seeing what search phrases people typed into Google that brought them to your blog. I always assumed that those who read this blog regularly are bookish types like me. That may be true for most of you, especially if you get to my blog by bookmarking it or clicking on a direct link somewhere. I don’t get to see that information. However, if you’ve stumbled across my blog purely by searching for something on a search engine, you had to type in a phrase or words that appeared somewhere on this blog before.
Here are a few search phrases — and mind you some of these turned up more than once — that brought people to my blog:
Book Hunter’s Holiday
Wild animals that look like dogs in Texas
San Francisco Book Fair
Great American home cookie baking
Brain shaped food
That’s certainly an eclectic mix of searches. I guess you should be reading this blog not only for bookish commentary but for advice on wild animals that look like dogs in Texas, baking cookies and making jello, and brain shaped food. And, of course, don’t forget those aquarium books! You’ll learn something new every day.
Have a good weekend! See you in the stacks!
