I am used to any number of hits, on any given day, for Viggo Mortensen and his girlfriend. Half of the world is hoping that there is no girlfriend. The other half is wishing they were his girlfriend. He is a popular guy, and I refuse to say which camp I belong in.
The other big searches, for my blog, involve my series on teaching Chemistry of Photography, pinhole cameras, etc. I also oversee my mothers poetry blog (see link on side bar if you are interested) and once made the totally innocent post of putting a poem up about After Holiday Sales on the day after Thanksgiving. Honest, I was not trying to inflate her numbers, but it sure did. That day she had over four hundred, probably frustrated and angry hits, by people who thought they were going to find a bargain, but found poetry instead.
Here is a recent high day for my blog:
However, on May 8th, searches for the same terms, just worded a bit different, lead over thirty people to my blog. Or, one person landed at my blog thirty times and I just cannot figure out if this was the result of something like a treasure hunt, or question on a radio station, for tickets, or what. Because why would thirty people have the overwhelming urge to search for “….a rock, song 1966″ or some version of that, on the exact same day? What is it with that???
It’s not that I don’t appreciate the stop-bys, it is just a bit strange . So, as a public service announcement, I am putting a link to I Am a Rock – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, where you can learn a lot about “I Am a Rock.” This is a is a cool song by Simon and Garfunkel. But then, most of their songs are.
This is a what my search terms for that day looked like: Wierd!
