Where my blog and work collide!

A guy at work text me the other day.


Made me nervous because he doesn't ever do that.

Asked me when I was coming in and if he could talk with me.

Everyone knows that it's not usually good news if they can't share it in a TEXT right?

I mean, my nephew was told by a girl that she LOVED him through a text... if that isn't classy I don't know WHAT is!

Anyway... didn't have a good feeling about it.

So I drive into work.

Go straight way to his cubicle because I'm impatient and curious as all get out!

Me: "Hey (We'll call him Barer-of-bad-news-work-bud) what's up?"

Bearer-of-bad-news-bud-- "Shelle... I'm going to be arrested for looking and kid porn because I went to your BLOG"

Me: In my mind, what the what? I say to him, "WHY!!!"

Apparently THIS post... where I almost caught my little girl peeing in the lake is a GOLD MINE for sick minded individuals.  I knew that on my Google Analytics I saw that the post was hit up a lot for the key words, "Peeing in the Lake" and "I don't want to get Wet"

I kept meaning to delete it, but haven't yet.  

I mean... NOW I will, tomorrow, after you guys read and see what these people are hitting up!

You know what scared me the MOST out of this WHOLE scenario... someone from WORK is reading my blog!!!

Now I'm going to have to delete that STEAMY post about the crazy pairings that are going on around the office, and the middle school drama, but now I can't... blame Mr. Bearer of Bad News Bud... (Hey bearer-of-bad-news-bud thanks for stopping by--don't be a stranger at my cubbie!!!)

Love,

Shelle

P.S. What key words are bringing people to YOUR blogs???

That is funny actually. People will search for the weirdest stuff. I don't really want to know how people find my blog. Really. Because I'm all innocence and have never used words like WET and PEE Shelle. Cause that may attract weirdo's you know??

Love ya :)

dadshouse said...

Maybe your coworker used one of those keywords to find that post! Creepy!!

lol

I get a lot of people looking for FOTOs of girls.... eeeewww

Well, I am really curious now, but my early morning brain can't figure out how to put the tracking code for Google Analytics into my blog. Once I figure that out I'll be sure to let you know what key words have been used to search my site! But I'm not really sure I want to know.

I've got one!

Ok, last year I was really fond of using the word 'spanked' in sports reporting - as in, 'Wales 'spanked' England at the rugby on Saturday.' I thought it was funny. And I say the word 'hubby' a lot on my blog because I keep our names private. All this led to a disturbing number of individuals coming to my site by searching for 'Spanked Hubby Blog'. Hm.

Susan said...

I truly think the best search words so far that got me a hit were:

"smelly taint".

Enough said.

except for the fact that I pray I do not know the person searching that issue.

Merrianne said...

ugghhh.... that is crazy!!!
kinda scary.....

some freako in this crazy world could be lookin at your daughter in a nasty way.........

that makes me want to vomit!!!!!!! people can't even post pictures of kids anymore because of Perverts!

anyway...
how can you find out what key words are being used to get to my blog?

Kristina P. said...

Yeah, I found out a lot more people at work know about my blog than I knew of. It's always slightly disconcerting when you find out people you know are reading, and you didn't know it.

Homer and Queen said...

What kind of peeps are you working with girl? Remind me to not blog about pee...

Jen B. said...

I can't believe that post was drawing so much attention.... amazing how sick people must be to type in things like that on their search bar!

Hair Bows & Guitar Picks said...

Funny..now maybe I better go see what you might find on my blog!

Lara said...

My most popular searches are for funny sleepwalking stories, things a woman should carry in her purse, and my key won't fit in the ignition. Also how to make blog banners in photoshop.

As far as icky ones, I do get a fair amount of people looking for Overstuffed belly pictures. Too bad I don't have any on my blog. But whatever turns them on. (eewww)

However, every once in a while a great one comes along and you just have to wonder what people really want. I just checked after reading yours and found one for "Joel Singer infidelity coffee"

Whatever. :)

So far my hits have come from searches about The NED Show, and 1930's Dinner menus. Who knew there was such a demand for 1930's dinner menus?

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

That is kind of creepy. And yes it is disconcerting when people you know in real life read your blog. Last summer when Jared was so sick, my whole ward started checking it to see how he was doing. It was a great way to disseminate news, but a little bit weird also.

T said...

I have a lot of real-life people that check out my blog - including a few bishopric members, which makes me self censor (a little)

Of course, I don't think there's a problem with that photo... but I do have to wonder what he's searching for in order to hit on it!

I still get a lot of hits on an old post of my little girl playing with her sweet streets toys... and I wonder if the searchers are using the words "sweet" "little girl" and "toys"... Yikers!

I just wanted you to know I got a hit from Nairobi today! NAIROBI! (searching for executive limo service...what the?)

Annette Lyon said...

I don't know which is more disturbing--that he thinks that post is child porn, or that someone from work is secretly reading!

Kritta22 said...

I don't think there is anything wrong with that picture either.

I'm not a fan of deleting posts. You can always google it and find it.
But you put that on here for you. For you to remember that day. I say leave it. And all your other posts.

Funny story...I actually got fired for a post I post on myspace. Well that's what they said but I was 9.5 months pregnant. I don't think they wanted to pay my maternity leave. they knew I was going to quit after my leave. I could have sued them but whatever. I was going to quit anyway.

Considering that my blog is called MomShots and not MomsHots I don't get as many sicko's as I used to. When I first started I would get tons of wackos looking for hot moms but I've been working a bit on my SEO and have out ranked the site of a similar name. However, I had a shot on Flickr of my son and neice peeing and after getting a crazy amount of hits in like two days I realized I was being niave and deleted it. I think I had a photo on my site of my son in his undies once too. That's gone now.
It's insane how sick some people can be!!!!!

The key words are nutty, crazy, surreal, dumb and farts. And then when they see my picture, I'm sure they think, "Ohhh. of course."

For some reason I'm getting a lot of readers from Middle East & Asia. I have no idea why, only one commented.

April said...

And how do I check my searches for sickos?

Daddy Geek Boy said...

I have the words "Daddy" and "Boy" in the title of my blog. I get a lot of really creepy searches with uncomfortable combos of those words.

binks said...

All I can say is EWWWWW!
Poor Peeps.
I'm with Kritta, keep the post, ditch the keywords.

Sicko searches: "octopussy birth porn video" & all they got was Jimmy Kimmel. AND "little pee pee sex" not sure where THAT takes you. ROFL

Funny searches: black specks in instant grits.
What the what???
