What Brings You By?

When randomly checking the blog, I usually peruse the little counter at the bottom to see if I have made it to the celeb blogosphere level yet (I haven't) and also to see where traffic is coming from. Sometimes I recognize the traffic, most of the time I don't. Since the blog is listed on our facebook accounts, I realize any number of people can pop in and see what we're complaining about, but I wonder just what brings people by? With the exception of known blog readers (which seems to be dwindling... ahem!) who are probably checking in to see if we've relented and posted pics of T on here so they don't have to log in to the private blog, what brings someone from Vught, Noord-Brabant to our blog? (Where is Vught, Noord-Brabant anyway??)
I looked a little deeper, and it seems certain blog entries get much more google search results than others and it just makes me curious as to what these folks searching for and why my blog comes up as a result?
Here are a few that seem to get the most traffic:
  • is it the bow? (this seems to get THE most traffic)
  • such awesome times of the year?
  • the logo? (this gets rank #2)
  • their faces?
And here are a few of the places people are dropping in from:
  • Miami
  • Alberta
  • California
  • Alabama
  • Tokyo
  • Bethlehem
  • Vinkovci, Vukovarsko-Srijemska
  • Anoual, Nador
  • Petaling Jaya, Wilayah Persekutuan
  • Pennsylvania
  • Oregon
  • Portici, Campania
  • Montesilvano, Abruzzi
...and a myriad of other places. What's interesting to me is that a lot of these very foreign (Bethlehem!!) searchers seem to be drawn to our blog all because of that blasted baby in a headband! Perhaps baby headbands are even more rampant outside North America!
I guess long after I'm gone I'll be remembered for my hatred of baby headbands, especially those larger than the baby itself, and for breaking crock pots.
