Today I am paying homage to my top 10 referrers. These are the sites who are responsible for sending a great deal of traffic to my website. These blogs and websites are the hard-hitters, the trend setters, and the ones to whom my fantasy popularity is all due!
Thank you dear Google for your love of words and images and for your parsing all of my words into beautifully unique search terms. Here are a few of the funny phrases people have used to find my blog:
- “excuses for not wanting to cohabitate”
- “ten most painful things”
- “accidentally going commando”
- “a contraption to carry things downstairs”
- “can singleness cause misery”
- “is pelosi a communist”
- “excuses for being a voyeur”
(that last one is a bit disturbing…)
Yes, Facebook is for more than just quizzes, status updates, and tracking your friend’s love lives. I also get a fair number of my friends who click over from there to here!
3. The Brauns
Besides being our good friends and American Idol watching buddies, the Brauns are just good, bright, intelligent people… and it shows! I mean, like attracts like, right? All those bright intelligent people who read the Braun’s blog immediately click over to WhiteEyebrows as well. I can’t fault them for their brilliance.
This is my mom’s side of the family. Frankly, I don’t know what they’re clicking on over there to get redirected over here, but I’m glad to know they are. Hellooooooo!!! I know you guys are really my #1 readers, but since most of you are smart enough to know how to type w-w-w-dot-w-h-i-t-e-e-y-e-b-r-o-w-s-dot-c-o-m into a web browser’s URL bar, I am assuming most of your hits are being tracked under “direct hits” rather than referrals.
While motherhood has certainly taken its toll on my cousin Lindsie’s blogging, it certainly hasn’t stopped her friends and internet stalkers from clicking over here. While I have no cute baby like her to show off in pictures, I do have a lot of meaningless rhetoric, which is almost as fun as a cute baby…
6. Rhia Jean
Rhia’s independent, spirited, scared-spitless-of-wildlife blogging voice is quite unique to these here interwebs. First, I have to say that I’m proud that at least one of Red Oak, Texas’ finest products knows how to use the internets. In all seriouslyness, though, I’m just glad she hasn’t taken me off her links, even though I’m clearly positioned right now in the “bad friend” category for not really carving out some time to just hang.
Proof positive that social networking and blogging is being taken over our parents and grandparents! You used to think Facebook was for the young, until your parents sent you a friend request… Actually, for the record, my mother-in-law’s blog is only #7 because she’s only been linking here for about 9 months, while others have had much more time to accumulate stats. Her readers are currently the fastest growing demographic on WhiteEyebrows.com, and I’m sure they are getting a lot of enjoyment watching me figure out how to be married. In another year, her reader’s link-throughs will likely rival Google.
This is just plain fun, although Brigham doesn’t blog quite as much as he used to… As he pointed out to me once, sometimes you can only take a joke (or premise for a blog) so far. Something I wish “Seriously So Blessed” would also realize.
Thankfully, my wife’s blog just BARELY made the cut. Again, this is saying a lot since her blog has linked to my blog a very short amount of time compared to the others here, but what would a husband be without his companion blog? Thanks for all A2’s friends who are now my friends, just by virtue of marriage. I never thought I could be so lucky – or so highly scrutinized.
Lana is the only person in my top 10 (besides Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google) that I don’t actually know in real life or have never talked to. But, her spirited comments and blog-support have been welcome, even though she’s been falling in and out of that “going private” bandwagon…
Thanks to all of you who read and link to WhiteEyebrows.com. I continue to try and keep things interesting here. Feel free to suggest anything I can do to mix it up, do it better, or help you enjoy the ride more.
Meanwhile, buckle in for another 500 posts…
