WordPress is great. It gives me lots of information about my blog. I get statistics on how many people read it, an analysis of top posts and searches, all sorts of things. One thing it shows is what searches someone used to find my blog. There have been some VERRRRY interesting searches that somehow found me. Stuff like “spank nun big broomstick.” Huh? I’m just the messenger…don’t ask me.
Anyway, nearly daily there are searches that locate my blog by looking for my name, often several a day. What I want to know is, who is looking for me? It’s weird, knowing people are searching your name. I mean, I’m not naive. I know people google search each other all the time. I do it. It’s fun. But this happens for me nearly every day. This means someone out there is searching for my name quite a lot. I know of 2 other Lara Gardners in the USA. One is an attorney in Florida. The other is some sort of scientist who wrote some articles. So it is possible they are the objects of these searches. Yet some of them are probably for me and it’s kind of weird. Who is looking for me? I wish I knew that.
