And Then I Wondered if I Was Accidentally in Porn
In my hiatus from blogging, I avoided all things blog-adjacent. I didn't check Facebook, I didn't monitor comments, & I didn't watch my stats. There was guilt in not writing & if I didn't see any evidence that I wasn't blogging, it wasn't an issue, right?
Anyway...last night I sat down with the laptop & dug in. I read all of your kind & supportive comments, both on the blog & on Facebook. I picked through my page hits over my four month absence & was shocked that people were still tooling around even when I wasn't here. And then I took a peek at how people were finding me when I was so busy hiding from them.
As expected, I found mostly Google searches for weightylife or some derivation, but something had changed in my absence. My brand new #2 & #3 search terms were--I discovered after a quick jaunt to Google myself--searches for porn.
I was a little appalled that something I've written about (quite often, I might add) touches on enough key words to get some pretty frequent hits in the middle of the night. Dave's response: "Gee, Sara, you're right. It IS shocking that people use the Internet to find porn." Fair point.
So, if you found me searching for porn, I likely proved a huge disappointment. I did write a post once about the thrill of buying new bras, but that's as salacious as I get around here. But now I'm pregnant so that clearly means things will get kicked up a notch: there's nothing hotter than cankles, flatulence & debilitating heartburn. So all you porn-hunters better stick around. It's about to get hot in herre.
For all of those who are here without thinking I am a porn star: thanks for sticking around. Thanks for bolstering me up. Thanks for not expecting me to take off my clothes. It's the little things.
