Sometimes I really can't understand how search engines find this stuff. But once again, I present a list of actual searches which pointed people toward Attention Span in the past couple of weeks:
casually dressed in shorts and a sweatshirt, he - ...typed the first thing he could think of into Google just to see the results. Little did he know that he would wind up at a place where people come looking for:
Percentage of people waching NBA basketball games in New York State? - Hey! Rain Man stopped by my blog!
why do dogs run faster than people - Well, the two extra legs come to mind. But it's probably so they can catch up with that stinkin' frisbee.
why is it important that we know the meaning of our personal name - It's probably more important that we know the spelling of our personal name.
ed of the spear - Perhaps they'll cast me in the sequel...
how to spell asparagas - sometimes I don't even try to figure out how a string like this will get these people here. I just open my arms and say, "I don't care what you ate or how you spell, welcome!"
Finally you can get here without a search engine from Christian Carnival CVI hosted by Technogypsy, if you don't mind a quick stop in the country on your way. Next week Christian Carnival CVII (that's 107 to us non-Romans) will be held right here, smack dab in the middle of Attention Span. I'd love you to contribute, especially if you've never participated before. Here's all you do... pick a post from your blog from the past week that you'd like to share.
You may contribute any post written during the seven days preceding the Christian Carnival (Wednesday). You may wish to consider that the readership of the Christian Carnival will be more varied than your usual readership, and you might do better contributing a post with broad appeal. Then send an email to the Christian Carnival's submission gmail address* with the following details:
* The name of your blog and a link to your main site.
* The title of your post and the URL of the post.
* Include a short (one or two sentence) description of the post. Your description may be edited by the host, but is often used just as it is.
So, there you have it. I look forward to seeing you again. I'll be cleaning and rearranging things while you're gone.
