I spend portions of my week catching up on blogs I follow and learning information from various sources – whichever is most imperative and crucial at the time (ha!). One writer/blogger I follow posted today about the type of people who have discovered her blog using often unrelated search terms. For example, most people are directed to my blog by typing, “the simple life of a country man’s wife.” Simple. Related. Google did its job. Swell! Other times, however, people find me using terms that cause me to raise my eyebrows in interest. Here are a few that did just that:
- merry christmas dang it
- red lipstick kisses on a man’s face
- hunting in south dakota benefit of living in the country
- signs that you’re a desperate housewife
- grateful for my child shoveling snow
and my favorite:
- do cowboys and farmers make good husbands?
To which I would answer, yes.
In rare cases, some lonely bloke finds me searching non G-rated terms; and because this is a G-rated blog, I’m not going to reprint them. But I assure you, they must have been sorely disappointed to land on this blog …
But if you’ve been following The Simple Life of a Country Man’s Wife for any length of time, you probably know how some people ended up on this blog using those terms. While it was I that shoveled the snow, and not my little slave child, I did write a post about it, causing someone to find their sweet little self here. Those red lipstick kisses, you ask? A post from many moons ago, sharing my new love and fascination for a lipstick’s power to change a girl’s spirit. A cow photo included, of course. And the desperate housewife one? There must have been some mistake!
I began this blog in hopes to form relationships/connections with people, from all over the world. I didn’t have a target audience in mind, but as long as people liked what they read and saw, then it was mission accomplished.
Mission successful, yes indeed. I have met some truly great people, and have received only positive, encouraging words of kindness. I so love that you keep coming back!
All of this leaves me wondering … As a blogger, what are some of the strangest terms that have led people to your blog? As a reader, what type of blog peaks your interest the most? For me, lots of good photos and heartfelt, solid writing keep me comin’ back for more.
