Wow today is my 8TH VOLUME of 7 Quicktakes Friday! I can’t believe I have been doing these for 2 months! When I first started reading other peoples 7QT I thought they were cute but I was currently doing a Top 10 Tuesday Link-Up. The idea of doing list posts two days a week was daunting. At the time I was also posting a lot of shopping trips on Fridays and didn’t want to post too many times a day. Since I am currently only shopping a few times a month I decided a Top 7 list was WAY easier to write than a Top 10 List. Plus it was a Catholic Link-up and I was trying to get more Catholics to find my blog, so it was a WIN-WIN!
Last week as 2011 came to an end I was looking at my Site Statistics and looking at all the keywords people have searched to find my blog. Here are 7 of the STRANGEST keywords! This list is in the order of MOST STRANGEST word to LEAST STRANGEST word.
Jen @ Conversion Diary for hosting this awesome list link-up for Catholic Bloggers!
— 1 —
SEX UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE – I have NO IDEA why this phrase brought a reader to my blog but I hope they found what they were looking for 😉
— 2 —
I HATE THE NEW ROMAN MISSAL – I got a BIG kick out of this one. I wrote a lot of posts about the new roman missal in the last few months. I guess this person wanted to find others that hated it. I didn’t write ANYTHING hateful about it because that is a BIG NO NO in the blogosphere. I hope this person has come to LOVE it!

7UP NEXT TO CANDY – I have NO IDEA about this one. The only thing I can think of is in one of my “Cash Back Friday’s” posts I bought 7up and candy?
— 4 —
VIRGINS – When your looking at a list of words and see VIRGINS it is a tad strange HOWEVER I did write a review on Virgin Diaries so it makes a little bit of sense.
— 5 —
TRANSPARENT SNOWFLAKE (and other variations of snowflake) – I had a plugin on my blog during December where it snowed on my blog so I’m guessing there were some tags in the images. I took the plugin off because several people said it made my blog slow loading.

BEAUTY TIPS BLOGS WITH GUEST POST – I did have some guest posts in the last few months HOWEVER I haven’t really talked about Beauty Tips. I would be the WORST person on the planet to talk about Beauty Tips (just ask my sister). I did however find a TON of great deals on make-up the last few months.

WALGREENS CATHOLIC – I have NO IDEA how these two words would EVER even go together. I don’t know anything that is “Catholic” about Walgreens. If anyone else does please let me know! However, I do talk about Walgreens and Catholic things quite often.
Those were the 7 STRANGEST keywords used to find my blog. If you don’t have google analytics (GA) set up I would recomend it. You can learn a lot about your blog from the information in GA. If you would like some help please let me know and I will help you out.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about Gifts for Couponers I recieved a TON of hits from a number of different combinations of “Gifts for couponers.” That is good to know I will have to revise that post next christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful start to 2012 I set several “Blogging Goals” that I would like to acomplish and am excited about!

P.S. Please pardon my awful formatting I am sick of arguing with wordpress tonight!
