Should I be proud?

Those of you with blogs might, on occasion, look at your sitemeter or equivalent and see how people get to you. I'm just saying you MIGHT. There's no "might" with me, however. I admit I look. Only on occasion, of course, though keep in mind that "occasion" really is an open-ended term.

Anyway, I recently saw a search term that led someone to my blog. My blog (well, one post anyway) is search result number four for this phrase on the whole Web, according to Yahoo. Should I be proud? Should I be embarrassed? Is Yahoo trying to tell me something... or tell the searcher something?

You be the judge!

Ahhh, I love the Web!

Yes, I liked the self-reflexive nature of the post, as well as the fact that someone searched that and ended up here. Sure... quirk of some algorithm, but it made me laugh, darn it.

Yes, you should be proud. Search terms today, tomorrow, the dictionary!

All because you moved from being amateur crastinator to pro. That bit cracks me up every time I visit.

Searches from Google that lead to my blog are: "What wine goes with spaghetti?" and "Is it good to shave my eyebrows?"

I went ahead a did a new posts with both in the title, so people could get the answers faster. (Its red and NO.)

Oh, that's great! Thanks for making me laugh out loud. I'm with you on finding a way to read to kids, too. It's one of those things that's high up on my list of "want to do", but I never quite set it up. I do read to my friends' kids whenever I get the chance, whether the friends like it or not (most do, of course).
