Already the last Friday of November (time flies), so another casual Friday. First of all, I’d like to share some of this month’s number with the stakeholders (that’s you), then I’ll tell you what other blogs I have found and would like to share and finally, I will explain what has been going on at my other blogs.
First of all, Novembers most popular post by far was the episode with the school bus. Also, Google has now found my blog and is getting me visitors that were actually looking for ‘sweaty old men’, ‘school bus commercials’ and ‘are men lazy on television’. I’ve got an audience that is hard to pin down. Luckily, some googlers found me on the exact words ‘visiting Missouri’. That was a proud moment. In blogs I follow: check out Me 2.0, who writes some of the craftiest sentences I have seen and Dances with Chaos, who turns out to be of a rare breed: she writes about her kids while actually being funny.
On my other blogs, things are getting better and better. As they have a better targeted audience, I get visitors from google all the time (how about someone looking for ‘people stuck next to obnoxious people on a subway’, I really love analyzing search engine terms), but from what I can tell, they could never have found what they were looking for. The most popular post on the other English one has to be 5 things that aren’t romantic in real life. The Dutch one has been thriving under the little side business I’m doing and gets quite some visitors every day looking for ‘Sinterklaasgedichten’. Check it out, I’d say.
Ladies and gentlemen,
I may have forgotten last Friday was the last of the month, so I decided to switch the two. You’re now reading last Friday’s post and if you want to read today’s, I’d like to refer you to the matter I posted last Friday. This month was the second month this very blog existed and I’d like to review it with you. The best viewed post in October was without a doubt the Episode with the guns. As expected, I have to say, because it’s bound to stir up some emotion. I was glad to see it did and people got involved in a little discussion. Feel free to add to it. Also, I have been digging deeper into the blogging community and added some links in my blogroll. I especially recommend the Guide to women, which is both hilarious and a fantastic view on life and relationships. Life in hashtags handles life in Tenessee, which is only one state away, so read it.
Lastly, I want to talk about what’s going on on my other two blogs. The one in Dutch is growing steadily, but only updated once a week. For those of you wondering: my book is at approximately 20%, hoping to get to 40% before the end of November. The other one is growing faster (updated three times a week, just not while having tests), with popular posts such as Hashtag bashing (not to be confused with Life in hashtags) and Thank You. Take a look, comment and enjoy.
For now: are there any topics that you’re dying to see written about?
What was your favorite post this month?
Ladies and gentlemen,
it’s the last Friday of the month: time for a recap. It’s been almost a month since I’ve come back home and I’ve had a lot of fun blogging about these so called ‘United States’. I have been taking notes my whole journey and now they are slowly resulting in a blog that gets filled. It’s almost like having a baby: it grows so fast. Also, after starting, there were several things I had to figure out. I have decided to blog twice a week, Tuesday and Friday. I’m still unsure about how bad I can stalk people on Facebook, but everybody I talk to seems to wait for my status updates to provide them the link. For all these people: check out the subscribe button on the right. It will send you an email whenever I publish a post and will save you the trouble of going to my blog. Isn’t that amazing. On the right side you’ll also see a few links that may interest you, feel free to browse. The next new feature I’d like to introduce is Travel Blog Tuesday, every other Tuesday, where instead of my anthropology, I’ll just describe my travels. Is there anything you’d like to see written about? Any topics you feel are missing? It’s casual Friday, you can just tell me…
