This blogging thing is new to me. I've been a little overly obsessed with reading all I can about it. It's amazing how many people are blogging about anything and everything, especially moms.
Google has this feature called "Google Analytics" which lets you analyize all of your website's traffic. It's a little creepy. This program will tell you how many people view your website, how they found it, where they are from, and all kinds of other creepy stuff. It even tells you what they are wearing while they view. I'm joking, I hope.
So, I've been checking my stats a little too much. Come on, it's fun. My friend was volunteering in Tanzania. I kept getting hits to my website from there. I sent her an email asking if she was my viewer from Tanzania. She replied, "I have been reading. How do you know that? That's creepy." It was creepy.
On to the fun part. As I mentioned, Google will tell me how people found my website. This is fun. Say you want to ask a question like, "Why does Tim Horton's coffee make me poop?" You enter it into a search engine; Yahoo, Google, Bing, and somewhere on one of the options is my site, http://www.poopinacandle.com/. The searcher clicks on it and finds me. Then, Google Analytics tells me someone found my site by asking, "Why does Tim Horton's coffee make me poop?" Really, that is how someone found it.
Here are my other favorite "searches" that have lead people to my site:
"Can I reheat my Tim Horton's with the lid on?"
"Can I leave my earplugs in all day?"
"Should I reheat my Tim Horton's more than once?"
"Do people poop in candles?"
"Yankee Candle poop"
"Pyloric Stenosis Scar"
"How much Tim Horton's coffee will make me poop?"
I'm looking forward to more creepy data. Bwaaahaahaa.
