Dear Internet: You are weird

One of the most fascinating things about having a blog is seeing what it is that brings people here.  The other day a *really* strange search term popped up in our list of “why people come to KellyandGeoff.com.”

It was just too weird.  So, in honor of the truly strange corners of the internet (and The Bloggess who had this idea first), I’ve gone back through the list and picked out some of the strangest, funniest, most terrifying and sometimes offensive search terms that brought you people to this blog.  Granted, since I’m writing about them it’ll probably bring more of you here, but that’s OK.  What is that they say about any publicity being good publicity?  Yeah, that.  I think.

Female beauty “defined”

I found out today that this image has been circulating on Facebook.  Not having a Facebook account (that’s intentional), I would be one of the last people to know.  In this case, that’s a good thing.

When was the last time you saw photos of men like this?

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.  For that they have our thanks.  And we thank them especially for not throwing any poo in the process.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,300 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

And seriously, Kevin Smith and his dachshund should thank us for all the free (but still more or less accidental) publicity they got from us last year.

Porcupines do not throw their quills, and Kevin Smith owes us residuals

One interesting feature of WordPress is that is shows us how people find our site, either through links or search terms.  And for some reason, certain search terms steer people to our blog more often than others.  I have no idea why.  One of these searches involves porcupine quills, and the other involves Kevin Smith and his dachshund, Schecky.  I have no idea what the porcupine thing is about, unless it is one of Kelly’s Etsy or Regretsy things.  But the Kevin Smith thing I know about.   Seriously, we have become a subsidiary of Kevin Smith’s publicist or something with all the searches that lead here.  It’s cool though, because we like him, and we like dachshunds, and we like his dachshund.   So he gets some free publicity from us, and in a certain way we get some free publicity from him.  It’s all good.
