Are you a blogger? Have you ever looked at the section in your STATS that’s called “Search Terms”?
This is the weirdest list I have ever seen — the most popular search terms in my list have to do with deep frying oreos. Which means I have written post upon heartfelt post about losing my home, my experience with foreclosure, my feelings about coparenting, heart disease, — but my blog comes up when people search for how to deep fry oreos. I have shared my deepest fears and most people find my blog while searching for decadent deep fried gooey milk dippers. Fantastic.
The next most popular search terms have to do with ex’s, bastards, and hugging yourself. Someone even searched for “f*ck off” and my blog returned in their search engine. Just awesome.
Now, I don’t know if you are supposed to use the stats or the search terms in this way — but I suppose this information is useful somehow. I’m a bit scattered lately (more than usual). Now that we are done with the house issues, I have a lot of trouble deciding what I want to write about.
I feel a lot of pressure to keep writing about foreclosure, simply because I think the information I find might be helpful to other people. But I want to get past that experience and move on with our life. It’s so depressing to think about how much time I wasted. I don’t want to waste any more.
I sometimes want to write about what I know and dedicate my entire blog to coparenting. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to write more in-depth posts about my experience without making other people sound like complete assholes. Hmmmm.
Apparently this is going to require a little more focus. Wish me luck.
