Sorry, zombies, I don’t like you that much after all.

by Gina

Once upon a time, I wanted to add supernatural elements to my blog. I thought maybe I’d start with zombies. Realizing that I didn’t know as much about zombies as I did almost every other creature in the world of fantasy, I decided to do some research before blogging. During that research, I became very bored, very quickly. Turns out, I’m just not that into zombies.

Don’t get me wrong… I enjoy the occasional zombie story. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a fun. Fido was hilariously cute and definitely worth watching. A few other zombie stories have entertained me. But, this experiences reminded me that I only like zombies a little. I’ve always been more of a vampire girl (and a unicorn/hobbit/minotaur/ghost girl). My entire life, it’s always been zombies in moderation, and vampires with gluttonous zeal. With that in mind, I have no idea what I was thinking when the thought of zombie blogging first popped into my head. Maybe I was tired and felt zombie-like? Who knows?

From now on, I’m going to stick with what I like and what I know (which, admittedly, isn’t much).

It’s not that I have nothing to say…

by Gina

It’s not even that I don’t know how to say it. I simply don’t know how to write it. This is why my blog has been vacant for many weeks. I don’t know why it is that I can correct the hell out of the written words of others, while my own writing is deplorable. Hmm… A thought to ponder. Maybe one way to investigate this would be to write more about it. Or maybe not. I’ll have to let that idea simmer on the back burner for a while and see if it still smells appealing when I come back to it.

There’s a lot of stuff floating around in my head, so maybe I’ll give the active blogging thing one more try. Not so much at 3:45 in the morning, though. I’ll be back…

Search engine terms

by Gina

When I blogged at Knitter on Skates, I had a vested interest in the search engine terms that generated hits. It was my way of knowing what people were interested in. Now that I have a new blog and a new outlook, I still check the search engine terms that lead people to what I write. It’s different now, though. I’m not going to put too much focus on the terms that generate traffic, but I’ll enjoy reading them.

There were two within the past week that stroked my humor glands. They were:

  • weird way thinking
  • I try to be good, but I get bored

That last one makes sense. It is the exact title of one of my blog posts. That alone took some of the humor out of it, but I’m still glad that I can be found by that term/phrase. It boosts my non-conformist ego.

“weird way thinking” surprised me. It’s very appropriate, though. I do have a weird way of thinking, and I’m slowly trying to incorporate that into my blog. I don’t think I’ve been successful at it yet, but now I have confirmation that I’m on the right path. Out of curiosity, I attempted to find my blog via Google using that exact keyword combination. It wasn’t on the first two results pages. I gave up the search. But someone did find me that way, and that’s a step in the right direction.

(While we’re on the subject of blog traffic: What’s a girl gotta do to get a comment around here? 92 visitors for 13 published posts, and not a single comment! What gives? Feel free to say hello next time you stop by. I love comments)
