A small, family farm in Wisconsin

I have burning questions.  I need to know how and why you’re here, reading this.  The reason I’m so curious is because WordPress gives me STATS.  STATS are apparently important.  The information they give me includes how many “hits” my blog gets daily, weekly, etc.  The stats can tell me which of the pages or posts get the most or the least hits.  My favorite stats involve the search terms.  People type their query into their favorite search engine, and sometimes they’re directed to a page on my blog.  The reason I’m writing about this now is because this morning I was reviewing my blog stats, and nearly died laughing.  Someone typed in to their search bar “furry ugly child” and they were sent to Charlie’s page on my blog.  This person was so curious about furry, ugly Charlie that he/she also clicked on the pictures of Charlie, presumably to get a better look at his furry ugliness.

Other searches that have me puzzled include “american white pelican” .  That particular post has gotten the most views on this blog.  Many, many views.  I really wonder if there is not a better source of information on the American White Pelican?  My cheese soup recipes  have been found via search engine pretty much daily since I made that post.  I had no idea how many people were craving cheese soup.

I’d really love to know why so many people are seeking information  about pelicans.  If you’re one of those folks, do leave a comment!

Whatever brought you here, thanks for coming and come on back any time.

  1. No searching here. I have you plugged into Google Reader, so I always know when you post something new.

  2. I know this post is 5 years old, but what landed me here is my sister lives in Appleton and she always comments when we are talking on the phone when the pelicans fly by her. I know many birds, but living in Upper Peninsula, I am not too familiar with the varieties of pelicans. I googled pelican images, then added Wisconsin, and lo and behold, I found you. That brought me to the archive page with the pelican blog post, and this Did Searching Land You Here? post. After reading that, I thought I would respond AND check out your cheese soup recipe. I love my cheese soup recipe, but I am always willing to try a new one! So. I’m glad you had posted about the pelicans! Thanks!
