Not what you were hoping to find?

It's been a while since I took a look at my blog's traffic and stats.  The most amusing part, in my opinion, is the keyword searches that have brought some visitors here.  I'm quite sure most searchers are sorely disappointed when they arrive at my page and don't find quite what they expected.  This time there weren't too many weird searches that led readers to my blog, but I thought I'd share the more amusing ones.
  • stop messing me about - I'm sure someone was looking for love advice and not chatter about how diabetes messes with me.
  • of a picture of things that start with the letter d - Dogs? Dinosaurs?  Diamonds? Donuts?  Nope, just Diabetes-Supplies here.
  • chris bowman skating show - You know you're a die-hard figure skating fan when skating searches bring people to your diabetes blog
  • sweet diabetes - Or perhaps "bitter-sweet"??
While I was at it, I checked the stats on my knitting blog too.  Oh yes, there were some odd searches there as well.
  • flabby arms and tummy - I know, I know, but you don't have to rub it in!!
  • no one has been able to stay awake long enough - . . .  . to read my boring posts??
  • what is the secret to making zeppole di san giuseppe - I wish I knew, because they might be my very favorite Italian pastry and they are 100% bolus-worthy!
  • diabetes is a punishment - Really?  You mean my pancreas quit on me just because I misbehaved?  If I promise to be good, will it start working again?
What odd search terms have brought people to your blog?


  1. How do you do that???? Find out search terms like that? I wanna do that and I don't know how.

  2. I'd thought about using a counter but didn't want to pay and certainly didn't want an ad to show up.
    I clicked yours and - I've now installed mine.
    Thanks, Karen!
    Cara - it was easy. If I can do it, anybody can...

  3. Gosh, I need to comment more, huh? Yeah. Sorry about that.

    No odd search terms yet. My blog is still young though, so...

  4. lol I love looking at those too! Today's are a little boring though "OmniPod, DexCom, Children with diabetes", and usually a "Nick Jonas" reference - those people I'm sure are disappointed. All the expected stuff for This is Caleb... today. "flabby arms and tummy" is my personal fav from your list. I'm wondering how that relates to knitting!


  5. I don't know which are funnier, the search terms or your comments about them! Great post!

  6. hehe that is so funny...diabetes is a punishment. Dang!!


Thanks for your comment!
