Searching for The Crow

I was going through some old posts, trying to decide which ones to copy and archive, and decided to look at some of the stats for this blog. While I don’t get very many hits at all, I do get some unusual search items that take people here to my blog. I’ve compiled some of the more unusual below:


hooker  – (I had 8 searches for this, and I can’t figure out how/why. Maybe had something to do with the Courtney Love post I did…)

group bong – (there were about 18 different searches containing the word “bong”.)

kids with liquor – (makes parenting easy)

gulf of mexico death oil – (death oil is the most flammable type…)

truths about parenting – (there are none! buyer beware!)

right livelihood beer – (probably better than Busch)

fail french people – (yes.)

fly like a brit – (with an umbrella!)

make your own jataka tale – (hungry tigress not included)

two evil children – (I’d say ill-tempered rather than evil…)

fly like a crow, meaning (after 3 years I’m still trying to figure this one out…)

i cannot sit and do daimoku. (stand?)

drunk photography  – (friends don’t let friends drink and shoot)

job decrease death  –  (depends on the job I guess…)

butcher meat gross  –  (I much prefer accountant meat…)

who were the victims in Arizona  – (all the people that live there)

like fly a crow  –   (thanks!)

put back once done –   (my wife hates it when I don’t do that)

moose fight club  – (you already broke the first rule!)

i hate my religion nichiren shoshu stop forcing me  (no comment)

fatherhood failblog  –   (probably a much better name for this blog and almost certainly much more interesting….)

fly like an ego (it’s fly like an eagle Mr. Miller…)

gilda radner + book + zen (= disaster)

are you a wizard    –     (a wizard never tells!)

killing sperm isn’t murder but killing a fetus is?? how so?   (If so, I’m easily the world’s most heinous serial killer)

miss budweiser girls  (come for the dharma, stay for the eye candy)

killing sperm Buddhism  (again with the sperm)

christina taylor green dad there were four of us, now there are three  (sorry)

calling bullshit on the lotus sutra  (you can call, but I don’t think he’ll answer)

on the path of looking for what i wanted i found what i needed  (great!)

i hear my echo in the echoing wood meaning   (it means lay off the fucking shrooms)

what happens if crow sit in head and fly send reply   (I’ve got nothing)

my dad won’t be attending my baptism   (sorry)

bill maher likes beer  (me too)

to help prevent climate change, we should fly once a year  (with wings?)

epic fail Buddhist  (most appropriate search term for this blog ever)

My blog in search: a lesson in expectations

When I made the switch to WordPress, one of the features that I found to be really useful was “stats”. It will show you how many visits your blog has per day/week/month, incoming links, what links visitors clicked on once they were at your blog, and so on. One of the stats that WordPress tracks that I have found particularly humourous and intriguing is the terms that people used in search to find your blog. I would expect that 95% of my readers are either Buddhist or exploring Buddhism, and the rest just enjoy what I have to say or want my homebrew recipes. Turns out this isn’t the case. Apparently a lot of people find my blog while searching for topics related to facial hair.

I thought I would share with you some of the terms people were searching for and ended up coming to my blog. The number next to the term is the number of times that specific item was used in search, and then people clicked on my blog.
