One of the things about having a public blog is that you realize you are putting things out there for anyone and everyone to see. From your mother in law to your next door neighbor to the weird guy in 7-11. Really, anyone could read it. Sometimes that is a little weird but you get past it quickly enough.
Being the terribly nosy person that I am, I check my website stats every once in a while. Okay, more like every other day. Okay, maybe every day. ANYWAY. I check them to see who is linking to me, how visitors got to my site and what phrases they used in search engines to find me.
I always wonder what people think when they wind up on my site or blog while looking for “snopes greenies” (Snopes was mentioned in a comment and I had a picture of Truman with his Greenie) or “Manny’s Little Elm” (a fav Mexican place in Texas – we are still trying to find it’s equal in Ohio) or “Heath Brownie” (a recipe posted a while ago).
Then there are the phantom links…the ones that you have no idea what they are because they are either protected (like a private message board or Live Journal post) or the email “show message” links.
So, if you are linking to me or found me through a random search and are still trying to figure out how you got here, say hello, won’t you?
