One of the
obsessions joys of blogging is checking your blog stats. Knowing that people are actually here, reading your posts, makes you feel a little bit less like you’re talking into a soup can attached to a string and a little more like someone actually cares. Even if it is your own mom.
It’s also possible to find out all sorts of things about the people that visit your site–what geographical location they hail from, what they clicked on while visiting, and even what words they typed into Google to find you.
And that’s where it gets a little weird.
I’ll admit it. I don’t understand how Google works. I’m not even sure if the people at Google really know how they work. Maybe it’s magic. But I’m always amazed at the search words used to find this site.
“Kim Kircher porn,” for example. Believe it or not, search engines are out there, perhaps right this instant, scanning the internet for pornography associated with my name. Two of the most surprising search engine terms that have brought visitors to this site are:
1) Die doing what you love
2) Kim Kircher porn
I mean really people. What is wrong with you? This is a family show. My mom reads my blog. She regularly comments. You are not going to see naked pictures of me here.
And for this you should be very thankful.
Perhaps you site visitors are disappointed. Maybe you bounce off the site just as soon as you realize this is just a blog about skiing and finding inspiration and thinking about skiing and inspiration. But I have to admit that it kind of creeps me out. I’m talking to you here, Porn-Googler.
Who sits at home googling up porn and a certain person’s name? Do you really think you’re going to find something?
Might I remind you that we all have our own “porn star name?” Remember how that goes? Take the name of your first pet and your mother’s middle name and voila! instant porn star. This was a fun parlor trick from my
early ski bum college days, and it always brings a few raised eyebrows and smirks.
So, if anyone really wanted to find naked pictures of me, you should be googling my porn star name: Fluffy Love.
