Today starts a long holiday weekend here in America. The air is already buzzing with excitement as everyone rushes to finish work duties and start the Memorial Day weekend festivities. So, for this fun Friday, I offer a “Fun Friday Post.” Hope it cheers you up!

One of my favorite things to do as a blogger is to analyze my blog stats. (If this makes me sound pathetic, I don’t care.) How many people read my blog post today? How many commented? Where do they live? Do they have blogs too? It’s gets me excited to learn about the community of people that take part in my writing. I’m humbled, really.

And then there are the statistics around search engine terms that lead to my blog. Now starts the good stuff, folks. You see, I expect to see people that type “Ruth Rutherford” or “I Kissed My Date Goodnight” into the Google search bar. They are clearly looking for my blog, and I love that! I’ll also take the many searches for “human barbie” or “Taylor Swift”… or even “Taylor Swift is hot.” She is, after all.

But the fun starts with those other search terms. You know, the ones that make you go hmmm. So, in this Fun Friday Post, I offer you a glimpse into my WordPress statistics page. I’ve combed through thousands and now present you with the best. Here are actual, unedited search terms that led people to my blog. And trust me, I’m sure many of these folks didn’t find what they were looking for.
