- Someone in Toronto did a Google search for driving spiders halacha, at 2:45 am one morning, which brought up the archives from April 2006. I wonder why someone would search for those three words together? So strange!
- A Technorati search for conversations with other women (the name of a movie, I think?) brought up the post on children.
- Two Google searchs for abecedary pronounciation, one from someone using regular Google in Boston and one from someone using Mexican Google in Sinaloa, Culiacan, Mexico (a hour and 45 minutes apart), and the very first hit was the post in which "abecedary" is the word of the day.
- Someone from the Tribune Company was searching for "subway record" on Google Blog Search and ended up here. Maybe the Tribune Company owns AM New York and that's how they found my blog for the blog beat.
- Someone at the University of Connecticut searched for "characteristics feminist nerds" and landed here! (It was the second hit!) I like this search...
- Apparently, my blog is listed on MyJewishLearning.com's list of "popular Jewish blogs." (I know this because someone in Austria found my blog that way.) Whaddaya know? It's nice to be loved.
- Someone in Israel who has internet service through Palestine Communications Company (Paltel) is reading my blog, or read it at least once.
- In what has to be a spectacular coincidence considering, well, just considering, someone in London searched Google UK for "why do women prefer men friends in psychotherapy" and landed here, in addition to finding out things like "Why do the rich keep working?," "Why do so many men pay for sexworkers?," and how "Depression Affects Men Differently Than Women." And note that I do not prefer men friends in psychotherapy. I prefer friends of all genders who are willing to (at least try to) be introspective when the need arises. Even though being introspective is scary as all get out.
- Someone in Little Rock, Arkansas has the same problem that I do, and Googled "correct spelling lasagne lasagna" and landed here. Perhaps not representative of my finest moments as a blogger.
- Someone in Tel Aviv Googled "kosher food in foz do iguacu" and landed here. When that didn't work, they Googled "kosher restaurants in foz do iguacu," which wasn't much help, either. Best of luck to you, buddy! I suggest doing what I did--bringing plastic packets of tuna and crackers, along with dried fruit and nuts. Chocolate won't last long, there. I tried it. (It melts.)
How you found me, part 2
Yay, statcounter! (Part 1 is here, for those who missed it.) In no particular order:
