Wow! It has been a bit more than two weeks now, since I started my blog. As I keep on writing, I feel myself getting more comfortable in communicating my thoughts. When I started this blog, I started it for self-satisfaction, mostly. I aimed to please myself by writing those thoughts and idea sparklings, that come and go through my mind everyday. I wanted to keep a record of how my ideas and the way I thought about things around me evolved over the course of time.
Open to public, this personal activity made its way through other people. As I “publicize” my posts on my twitter, I had people “view” my posts. View is the word, WordPress is deliberately using on the stats page on my dashboard. People may view my post, they do not measure if they read it or not. Let alone reading, people may even view it for seconds and not see a word of what I wrote, and there it counts as view. Therefore, pretty much, I still write this blog solely to entertain myself – and a few close friends.
At this point, a bit over two weeks since I started up this blog, I would like to share some statistics of the blog. As I was writing my blog, I could not avoid checking the stats daily. One just gets curious about what others think of him/herself. Looking at my stats was quite an experience for me. So I wanted to share them with you. Especially the weird search items…

And here are the search items that I find the weirdest:
|english time tablet pc||6|
|tablet pc english time||3|
|turkish armpit hair himym||2|
|“turkish armpit hair”||2|
|englısh tıme pc tablet hediye||1|
|pc tablet english time||1|
|english time tablet||1|
|english tme tablet pc||1|
These are the top search items that referred to my blog. 6 out of the first 8 are about English Time Language course and the tablet pc they are giving for free. My blog post was not intended to advertise their stupid campaign, but it looks like it served to that purpose – or rather against it.
Here is another one:

Supposedly, the one above was searched on Google and Google showed my blog in the search results. And that person viewed my blog. I guess it is just a bug.
About the photo, it is the original of the one in my background. It is a view of Cougar Lake in Edwardsville, IL, when it was deep frozen in winter. The background photo was cropped out of that one and underwent some tone changes.
