You Found My Blog HOW?

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 bronyMe 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.)

Solid002– What?

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!)

    This wasa really cool, funny post! 😀 Also somewhat weird… and creepy… Do you have any idea why someone who searched “forensic lesson why dead bodies float for students” found your blog…? That cracked me up, though it also frightened me some… O_o Don’t worry about NaNo; I’m failing too! I like my novel premise, but I’m 99% sure that the writing sucks. My protag is actually pretty well-developed this time around but the second most important character is giving me SOOO much trouble; he can’t decide what kinda person he wants to be and it’s killing me inside 😀 (you’d understand the humor if you knew more about my book)!
    Best of luck to ya and great post!
    p.s. I’m trying to begin a revolution for bringing back the word “blithe”. I use it all the time but no one else does!!! You ever use it?

    • Aloha says:

      Haha, thank you! I appreciate the kind feedback.

      The only reason I would think someone would find EI through a foresenics search is because I once wrote a post about how the foresenics class at school set up a fake crime scene in the room we use for Japanese lessons. But I would think there’d be better resources for lesson plans than mine!

      Best of luck on your novel; if you need to boost your word count, you’re welcome to join a group of us teen writers who word-war on the weekends. It’s pretty effective, not to mention a lot of fun.

      That’s ironic, “blithe” is one of the words on my The Oddessy vocabulary test tomorrow (that I should be studying for right now). I use it in my writing sometimes, although not so much in general conversation. Challenge accepted! (“she said blithely”).

    HAHAHA The importance of slippers…..Amazing. Enjoyed reading this one. My favorite so far!

  3. Kirsten says:

    Very funny… and strange. Your blog is one I’ve been reading for a long time, so some of those searches actually make sense to me. Others… creepy. Good job!

  4. thegreenhermione says:

    These are strange yet hilarious!
    Ever since I did a Starkid-centric guest blog for my dad, his top hit has been “boss zefron poster.”

    • Aloha says:

      XDXD Those hundreds of posts about the Damn Good Cooking project, and people come for the AVPM references?

      I did enjoy those Starkid posts, though. So envious of your NY trip 🙂

      Thanks for commenting!

  5. annanm says:

    … Count me amongst those with creepy interests; I’ve googled the crap out of Oscar Wilde.
    Really, I’m convinced that a search-term related post is an insta-win. So much hilarity, so many fails on the behalf of humanity. Bravo.

    And on the NaNoWriMo notes, I started my Camp novel with my main character’s death. It felt really awkward in the middle, but then when I got closer to the end it just felt right. I suggest sticking with it a little longer, then re-evaluate when you get closer to that critical time.
    (Oh and by far the weirdest search term I’ve gotten is “elephant seal porn.” That just takes the creepy-cake.)

    • Aloha says:

      The ironic thing is that I also searched for that, while doing research for the Oscar Wilde post.

      Hm, good advice; thanks! Maybe I’ll just push through and see how it goes.

      “Elephant seal porn”? That’s… the grossest thing I’ve ever heard. >.< Weiiirddd…

  6. Allegra says:

    Mention Justin Bieber once and look what you get…a bunch of Beliebers sifting through your site for any mention. I’m afraid to make a joke about him now lest they come for MY blog.

    • Aloha says:

      Haha, no kidding. I’ve done nothing but call him a girl and hurl other (related) insults at her him. People need to get lives.

      Thanks for stopping by; I always enjoy your comments!

  7. Nerdygirl98 says:

    Strange searches, but awesome post! I totally agree with you on the Airbender movie. Suckish. Tom Felton??? Ehh… I don’t think so. I’m about fed up with these Beiber fans, when the guy makes a semi-decent song, I’lll change my mind. Anyways, great post, and I’m looking forward to reading som emore!

    • Aloha says:

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Ugh, I know, right? I can’t watch more than 15 minutes at a time. Whenever I hit the part where Katara breaks open the ice and flies back fifty feet into “Soh-kah”, I laugh so loud I can’t focus on the movie. It only gets worse when “Ahv-hatar” “Oong” tries to be serious. He’s not supposed to be! He never was! –I need to stop ranting now.

      I feel the exact same way about her. Psychotic fans drooling over an underage puberty-impaired pop star. It’s creepy.

  8. Liam Wood says:

    Very good post. Weird… Narwhal costumes?

    • Aloha says:

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Uhm… I did mention it once, but it was extremely brief and not enough to warrant a search (in my opinion). Whatever gets people here, I guess *laugh*

  9. TayMik23 says:

    Some of those are truly strange. Tom Felton Zuko?

  11. I find your crusade against ugg boots mildly offensive.

    Apart from that, great post!

    • Aloha says:

      Haha, thank you! I know that a lot of people love Ugg boots, so I guess it’s just a matter of opinion. Thanks for stopping by!

      • I was merely joshing. I wear them as large warm socks. They’re not something you’d wear in public, but that advice seems to have been ignored by the Bogan subculture of our nation, much to society’s ridicule.

      • Aloha says:

        Yeah, I hoped you were kidding after I read your blog and realized you were a guy… 🙂

        I have Ugg-like slipper boots that I wear around the house as well. I just think, like you do, that they belong in the house. Walking to the mailbox, tops.
