Today’s my turn to post with the Teens Can Write Too! blog chain. This month’s prompt was to discuss the wackiest terms people have used to search your blog. And have I gotten weird ones…. There are some creepers out there.
My most popular searches actually make sense. When you search for pictures of Edward Elric on Google, my Hot Fictional Guys series post about him is on the second page (not to mention it’s one of the clearer, high res pics up there). I presume that my second-highest search, Len Kagamine, is because of a Google picture too, but I haven’t been able to find it yet.
(Okay, that may be because I get overwhelmed by the adorableness of the search page and spend an hour saving all the pictures to my computer. I mean, dude, look at it!)
Anyway, those are shortly followed by searches for Vic Mignogna, Alphonse Elric, and llamas. Skyward Sword comes in a close sixth.
Those are all normal, though. Let’s get on to the weird ones 😀
Ugg Boots– I wrote a post once where I mentioned how UGGly they were. Does this warrant over twenty searches? Probably not.
Bret Michaels– I didn’t even know who this was, so I Googled it. Gross! To my knowledge, I’ve never written about him, posted a picture of him, or even thought about him. The only eyeliner-wearing man worth mentioning is Adam Lambert (oh, shut up, you know he’s cute).
I love you Justin Bieber, Justin Bieber hot, smart pictures Justin Bieber, Justin Bieber December 2010, Next 2 U Justin Bieber (etc.)– You people have issues.
Anime boy transform in girl– You mean “transform into“? Never heard of one that does. I’ll let you know, though.
I found out that my teacher is a brony– Me too, man. Sorry. If you’re looking for advice on coping, I have none.
Importance of slippers– You Googled this? Really? (The sad part is that it’s actually perfectly logical, because I wrote this post. Dude, I was tired.)
Vending machine shark attacks dangerous– Took me a while, but I figured out that they were referencing this reblog post. For a few days, though, I was just like, What the llama?
Halloween costumes for math teachers– Well, I know at least two who’d likely go trick-or-treating dressed as Pinkie Pie. That help you at all?
Pictures of Eragon’s home– Hey, I’m not a stalker. Buy the movie– or rent it, no use wasting too much money– and screencap it.
Tom Felton Zuko– Do you mean Dante Basco? Tom Felton’s not Asian, he has a British accent, and he’s, like, ten years too old. Although he’d probably do a better job than the dude they actually hired to play Zuko in the live-action movie.
That movie was darn pathetic.
Poison cues please reply– ??
Vic Mignogna sexy– Is there any other kind?
Oscar Wilde scandal– Either you’re looking in the wrong places for your school report, or you have creepy interests.
Is our society reenacting Fahrenheit 451?- The definition of a reenactment is “to go through a second time” or “to perform again”, indicating the event had to actually happen in the first place. Still…. dibs on Clarisse!
“Shawn Spencer” hair– Um, okay.
Foresenics lesson why dead bodies float for students– …
Can Yusuke Yamamoto speak English?- No.
Toradora fanfiction– Do you want me to write one for you?
Making a narwhal costume– Best of luck to you.
There are many, many others. Those are just the highlights.
On the NaNoWriMo front, my novel isn’t going so well. I’ve been struggling quite a bit with my main character. I love her, but she’s being weird and hard to develop. I have another character I’m bringing in tonight who will hopefully liven up the plot, but I still haven’t decided whether or not he’ll be her love interest or just a good friend. I feel like I started the novel too far into the story, trying to be dynamic, when I don’t understand my plot enough.
What I may end up doing is going back and writing from a few days earlier up until my actual start. It should help to clarify things, and the reader will be able to understand the relationship between Nola and Sparrow before he dies (I started the novel just as she’s recieving the news about his passing, and it feels awkward).
I’m also having trouble finding time to write. Staying up late isn’t an option, with my homework load already taking me past midnight. I’ve been trying to wake up early, but I’m not a morning person by any definition. Tips?
Question: What are your weirdest search terms? (Unless you’re from the Chain, in which case I’ll just read your post!)
