I have a statistics counter on my blog. When I click on it, it whispers all sorts of sweet nothings to me like, for example, how many readers I've had, what city and state my readers are located in, what blog post was read and...what words they've queried on (also known as "search terms") to get themselves to my site. That particular piece of information is called "keyword analysis".
Not very farm or country-life oriented, I know, but I'm a bit of a nerd and I enjoy this kind of useless information.
Yesterday's keyword analysis was intriguing to me. All the queries made complete sense to me except for one (please note my appropriate use of the color yellow):
Now, why do you think this person wound up on my site? I (blush) don't talk about *those* kinds of things on my blog and I know I have never used those words in any of my posts.
Turns out, it wasn't something I wrote. It was someone's COMMENT to me on my blog post: Future Farm Boy or Spiderman:

"Spidey is adorable! Don't you love three year olds? I think that's my all-time favorite age.
Sponge Bob looks like he desperately has to pee."
I laughed out loud at this. I just can't take you anywhere, Robin. But, apparently, your comments will follow me forever.
I'm so embarrassed. ;-)
