Recently blogger.com started providing a place to view the stats for your own blog. Before I could see how many hits my page had from the monetizing option, but now I can see all kinds of details. This includes what country people are in when they look at my blog, what kind of browser they use to look at my blog, a bunch of other stupid crap, and most importantly, if they searched for my blog using Google or something, what keywords they used. The number one search keyword that has brought people to my blog so far is “kristen cavallari parents house.” Other keywords that will evidently bring you to my blog:
tips for not having to poop while running a marathon
braces three times
charley horse dangerous
and my favorite:
when i eat at spaghetti factory i get diarrhea
On a less interesting note, I realized that at some point along the way I stopped posting mileage on here. For anyone coming in late in the game, my original goal was to run 25 miles a week, every week this year. Due to unexpected injuries I’ve fallen slightly behind, but who’s to say I won’t still make it? To catch up I would need to run a mere 60 miles a week for the rest of the year. I probably won’t, but only because I still have a touch of tendinitis in my IT band. Otherwise I probably would (maybe).
