Funny Google Search-Term Friday

That title sort of has a nice flow to it, huh? Okay. Maybe that was just me.

Happy Friday everyone! One of my favorite bloggers, Jenni over at Story of My Life, has done a few blog posts like this before. I found hers rather entertaining, so I thought I would share some of the search terms that led people to my blog too. Using StatCounter I can keep track of visits to my blog, and I also see what google search keywords led people to my blog. It's rather interesting, and sometimes perplexing, seeing what people search for using Google.

Sometimes I wonder...

These search terms, and phrases, are in no particular order.

This is a random selection including some of the most recent search terms that I found interesting.

"Closet Braid Dress"
This one isn't too weird, because it's the name of a dress I purchased from Modcloth. You can see me wearing it in the above image and in this outfit post. It's a great dress!

"A braid for everyday of the week"
This one has me laughing, because I am probably the last person you should consult for braid ideas. I just learned to fishtail braid a couple of days ago, and I still struggle with the french braid. No lie. Thanks though!

"Is the Hoover dam claustrophobic"
My guess is that the dam isn't claustrophobic, but if you go on the tour it might make you feel claustrophobic. We toured the Hoover damn a few months ago, and if you don't like cave-like spaces or feeling like a sardine in an elevator full of people than I would not recommend it.

"Alligator sightings"
"Crikey!" We've already seen quite a few gators since moving to Florida. You can read about our sightings and in the process you can laugh at my recording skills, or lack thereof. Fun times. Like I said, I like making people laugh, even if it's at my own expense.

"Advantages of homelessness"
Maybe I used the word 'homelessness' a little too loosely in this blog post....

"Florida drivers are crazy"
Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks so. This one is self explanatory. Read my rules for driving in Florida and 'Buckle Up!'

Happy Friday!
What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. I just realized that the dress you're wearing is the dress I've been eying for like, MONTHS. Totally missed that in the oufit post! Haha

  2. "A braid for everyday of the week" that sounds like a challenge to me Ash! You should give a try. How many different braids styles can you come up with? You've mastered the fishtail now it's time to up the ante! lol

    Google search terms are so funny. Someone out there found me by searching for Home Team Dreams Photography! There isn't one. And I'm DEFINITELY nowhere even remotely close to being a photographer! lol

  3. HA

    I love this. Searches are so funny..

  4. Ahhhh, I think these are my favorite posts!! It's so funny to see how people find our blogs!

  5. Hehe the things that bring people to our blogs! I need to look at mine ;) I'm sure I'll be rather amused by them too!

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  6. Hahah so funny! Yes I've had some really weird ones too before! I like the homelessness one!!!! Anyways, have a good rest of the Sunday!

  7. The search word stats also humor me...some of the hits I have received are from the searches "no wire hangers" and "shower with my clothes." :)

  8. I meant to comment on this, Ash! First off, thanks for the shout out! ;) Second, I LOVE the way you linked to the post that the searcher probably found! I may do that in the future. Smart girl! :)
