One of the coolest things about having a blog is having people reading your blog. I don't have that many readers, but rest assured I value each and every one of you. Although it's very stressful coming up with new posts to entertain y'all every day... Anyway, most of you are friends--people who know me and to whom I sent the link to this site. A couple of people stumbled upon my blog by "blondering"--a term coined by one of my readers who found me by "blog wandering." But some of my traffic comes from keyword searches.

If I really wanted to up my traffic, I'd make sure each post had a reference to "Angelina Jolie"--or even better, "Angelina Jolie NAKED." Or "Brad Pitt," or better--"Brad Pitt NAKED." You get the picture. But I would never stoop to such cheesy tactics! Uh, well other than the examples above. Nope--you'll never see me slipping in phrases like "Paris Hilton sex tape" or "Britney Spears crotch shots." Damn--I bet all the traffic I get for this post is going to be really PISSED when they show up and there's no naked pics of anyone. That's right--move along! No naked pictures here!

Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, keywords. Well, according to my stats quite a number of people stumble on my blog via an internet search. Some find what they are looking for--others are disappointed that I don't have the video of Anna Nicole's boob job (HA! Caught ya again!). Fortunately for me--and the searchers--most of the keywords do the trick. The number one search term for my blog is "stella louise." I'm sure I'm probably not the only "Stella Louise" on the planet, but I'm going to assume that the vast majority of people who Google "stella louise" end up in the right place. Although the person who ended up at my blog after searching for "louise cliffe" was probably disappointed.

Other variants include: "stella louise "stella louise,"" "blog by stella louise" and "stella louise screenwriter blog." I also get "well above average," "," "well above average blog"and "" Again, I'm guessing that most of these people were looking for my blog and found it. (Quick tip: it's Save yourself some time and typing--the "www." isn't necessary...) Along those lines, I also have gotten searches for "above average return," "average talk time," "phrase above average" and "just above average + meaning." Sorry folks. Don't know the meaning of "just above average," because--as we all know--I am WELL above average.

My recent post on the FULCAGE event sparked a number of search hits, as did my review of Manda Bala, my announcement about Lefties Day and my snarky entry for "Freegan." Other winners were posts about The Nines, Talk to Me and The Bourne Ultimatum. But along with the hits, there were a number of misses as well. I'm not sure what the person who searched on ""money hungry vampire" pictures" was looking for, or for that matter the one whose keywords were "juicy couture mulholland riot"--although I'm sure they didn't find it in my blog.

The person who was looking for "what do night and weekends mean at&t" most likely went away empty-handed as did "massachusetts 4 way stop traffic rules" and "joseph gordon levitt per episode 3rd rock salary." Although I'm sure none of them were as let down as the person searching for "lilo and "panty-less."" Once again, no NAKED pics or crotch shots HERE! I'm pretty confident that the search for "masonic temple 1616 butler ave" at least got the person headed in the right direction since I did include a link to the Village Recorder in that post...

The most offbeat searches were "weird superpowers," "i hate socks" and "how do you pronounce sepulveda." I felt bad about the last one since in my post about Becoming Californian I had boasted that I knew how to pronounce Sepulveda but had neglected to include the pronunciation. I have since rectified that in case anyone searching for that information stumbles upon my blog.

So if you're looking for naked celebrity pictures, whether they be of Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan or Vanessa Hudgens, you won't find them here! But you will find all sorts of random musings and ramblings. So even if the keyword doesn't fit, maybe you'll bookmark my blog and check back every once in a while.


  1. I can only imagine the amount of traffic blogging about Last Call caused. Must have shut down the servers! :) Keep on writing...I'll keep reading.

  2. Actually there was a search on "hollie nell" and I've gotten traffic (some of it perhaps other than you...) from the link to my site from your blog. Did you e-mail friends about my post about you and Last Call? I got a number of hits from yahoo mail...

    Stats are so much fun! ;)
