February Wrap-Up: Blog, Commentors, and Search Terms

March 3, 2009

February 2009 was the first month since I started blogging where my numbers didn’t top the previous month. Still, since my per-day average was the same as in January, we can write it off as due to the short month. Also, given that I’m averaging roughly twice as many visitors per week as I had in the entire month of February 2008, I really can’t complain. :) Also also, I’m glad you’re all here and willing to let me blather on about books! (That’s so cool.)


Many thanks to this month’s commenters!

Search Terms

when does name of the wind sequel come o
Unknown. Amazon originally had it listed as this April, but that’s no longer accurate. Rothfuss is still working on it, as he explains in a very funny blog post.

good books blogger
Aww, thanks, good books searcher!

christopher paolini estimated worth doll
Y’know, I have no idea how much a Christopher Paolini doll would go for. Do they make dolls modeled after excessively popular teen authors? I was going to crack a joke about action figures, only to find out there aren’t any easily Google-able Eragon action figures, only to die a little inside when I realized I’d just Googled for Eragon action figures. *sigh*

insulting display of contempt, either by
Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

pirate fashion
Personally, I have a raggedy pair of khakis, a flouncy dress shirt, a variety of plastic swords and daggers, a hook, two eyepatches (one with skull & crossbones, one plain black), and a bandanna made of cheap fabric printed with the Pittsburgh Pirates logo.

what chemicals do u use as a zookeeper
The zookeepers I’ve known have mostly used regular chemicals, like caffeine, alcohol, and very strong laundry detergent.

page best sex scene in the book dragonfly
Well, that’s really rather subjective, isn’t it? I mean, what *I* thought was the best sex scene is not necessarily what *you*’re going to think is the best sex scene. Everybody’s different, and people are into all different sorts of things…

gargoyles porn
See what I mean?

    Lol. Yep you got some weird ones last month! Elderberries? *snort*

  2. March 3, 2009 2:49 am

    You’re very welcome! I really enjoy your blog!

    gargoyle porn…now that’s a new one.

  4. March 3, 2009 5:19 am

    wow! linkylove! This post must be a ton of work to create. Thank you for the attention – I think YOU are cool.
    I only get boring search terms.

  5. March 3, 2009 8:20 am

    I love your search terms. I never get any off the wall ones like those.

  6. March 3, 2009 9:00 am

    Ladytink – I couldn’t resist a chance for some gratuitous Holy Grail quoteage.

    Sher – Likewise! :)

    Lenore – Yeah, sometimes I really just don’t want to know.

    Care – Well, since I don’t have an official blogroll, and love getting comments, I figured the monthly post was the best way to show my appreciation. Plus, it’s not a ton of work each month, since I’ve got a template that I reuse.

    bermudaonion – These are the wackiest… and this month was actually kind of slow; I think usually they’re a lot wackier.

  7. March 3, 2009 9:51 am

    those are some odd search terms…maybe one of these days I will get curious enough to post some of mine.

  8. March 3, 2009 12:57 pm

    Hey, find some gargoyle porn for me, would ya’?

  9. March 3, 2009 3:24 pm

    Serena – There’s always one or two gems!

    chartroose – Do your own dirty googling! :-D

  10. March 3, 2009 4:46 pm

    lol! Those are all great. And gargoyle porn.. a new one indeed :P

  11. March 3, 2009 8:55 pm

    You crack me up! Googling for action figures, teehee. :-)

  12. March 3, 2009 9:44 pm

    Nymeth – There are terrible, terrible, inappropriate jokes I could make involving gargoyles being carved out of stone, but I will attempt to act my age, instead of like a 13-year-old boy. :)

    Darla – I shudder to think what anyone perusing my search history would imagine I was like.

  13. March 6, 2009 1:36 pm

    I nearly spit my drink out when I read “gargoyles porn.”

  14. March 6, 2009 1:51 pm

    Anna – Sorry! I guess next time I’ll put a warning label. :)

  15. March 9, 2009 2:17 pm

    Sometimes I feel like my blogging life is falling apart. Sorry I never commented last month. Love the search terms!

  16. March 9, 2009 2:42 pm

    Natasha – No worries; I think real life keeps most of us from commenting as much as we’d ideally like to. I know it does for me!
