This post is for the November 2011 Teens Can Write Too! blog chain. This month’s prompt was:
“What are the wackiest, funniest, most disturbing search terms anyone has ever used to find your blog?”
I need to stop looking at the search terms used to find my blog; I’m only creeping myself out. Most of the search terms used to find my blog are perfectly mundane (titles of books and the like), but there are a few real gems. They’re not particularly disturbing, but they make me wonder about the types of people who accidently landed on this blog. Here are a few that made me laugh, twitch, and/or look twice.
ancient people with rocks–Yes, I do believe that ancient people had rocks. They came pre-made.
tamora queen of the goths–Are we talking about the ancient Goths who sacked Rome, or the modern type who hang around malls wearing all black, white, and red?
the w on the cover of witches and wizards–I think you mean “Witch & Wizard.” As for the “W,” it’s on fire, it’s orange, and it has human faces protruding from it.
evil thistle plant–Now I have an image stuck in my head of thistles coming to life and beating us all to death with their purple poofy flowers.
why chocolate is so amazing–I personally can’t see why anyone needs to ask this. Chocolate just is.
good replies to “here’s to us” email–The best I can decipher this one is that there is a chain or spam email going around with the subject line saying “here’s to us.” How dare they steal my blog title?!
fads right now–Look around you: Uggs, Justin Bieber, and kitten videos. These are dark times, my friends.
edger allen poe–I was starting to worry this person was going to spell his last name incorrectly, as well.
official illusions–Is there a National Registry of Illusions? I’d like to know.
2 girls did photos of fake fairies–So they did. It’s a fascinating tale.
horus acrostic poem–Sorry, but I’m not the best source of information on ancient Egyptian literature. Why don’t you consult your local library?
funny witch quotes–Quotes about witches, by witches, or directed at witches? And they have to be funny? You’re much too demanding, anonymous search person.
i am number four figurative language–I’m happy to know that some people still pay attention to literary devices.
stonehenge chain link fence–I’m just not quite sure about this one.
messy homework–Well, it happens sometimes, especially if you save it for the bus ride to school.
We were also asked to write a little bit about our NaNoWriMo projects or current novels for the blog chain.I’m not a NaNoWriMo participant, but I have vowed to try and finish my current WIP by the end of November. The first draft was finished a long time ago, but it’s simply abominable, so I’m doing a total rewrite, which is currently at about 76,000 words. It’s a YA fantasy of the medieval-epic style, but I’d like to say it’s less of an idealized “high” fantasy as a harsher, underworld fantasy. There aren’t any supervillains, but there aren’t any superheroes, either.
