Vagaries of teh Internets

It is teh strange.

I don’t look at the stats behind the blog much, because I’ve come to a happy place with it (at least for the time being) where I’m satisfied to write what I want when I want and whoever wants to visit, read, comment, or not — it’s all fine with me.  But every once in a while I check under the hood here to make sure no nice JelloHead has gotten caught in the spam filter, and I see the page that charts visits to my blog.

So, most days if  we break 100 hits, it’s a good day. Hence the nice steady little line across the bottom of the chart. But every once in a while there will be an anomaly such as what happened on July 9. For some reason, 3,790 folks clicked here. What were they looking for?!

key word searches

popular posts

That’s right — the most popular posts had nothing to do with Rachel Maddow!

I had a similar blip a few weeks ago, also when I hadn’t posted anything for a while. So you can spend time researching key words, and SEO strategies — or you can just write, and then shake your head and wonder at the marvels of teh Internet machine ….
