Ask, Seek, Find

Blogging is such a fun hobby!  I had no idea I would enjoy it so much.

I especially enjoy seeing which search engine terms bring people to my blog.  So far, my favorites are “elephants live in cake book” and “Nicolas Cage looking noble”.  I get the Nicolas Cage one, since I have a photo of him and use the word “noble” (thought not about Mr. Cage himself).  And who doesn’t want to read a book about elephants living in cake?  If you combined Miss Mopp and But No Elephants, that is sort of what you would have!

But guess what the top search engine term is?  And I mean the tippy top: we’re talking twenty hits for this one verses one or two for every other term.

Can you guess?

Stunningly, it is: “perry the platypus umbrella”!  Or variations on the theme: platypus umbrella, phineas umbrella, perry umbrella.  Clearly, this is a hot ticket item.  I wish I had bought more of these bad boys, because I could probably have doubled my money on ebay!

Alas, we just have the one umbrella, which is already a little bit broken.  But if you have a pair of Perry the Platypus slippers size toddler 7/8, we might be able to make a deal . . .

Seriously, I saw these one time and one time only at Target and am bummed I didn't snap them up (image via, where they are available for an absurd amount of money).

    My first association with “elephants and cake” is the book _Fannie and May_ by my friend Jon Buller:

  4. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book
    or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would really
    like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.


  5. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I find It really useful & it helped me out a lot.
