So my malenkiy blogsky is almost a year old, you know. My baby is growing up.
We shall celebrate in style- on February the 26th. If you wish to make a donation or send lavish gifts please contact me by email and I will send you the address. It will have to be the work one, I guess, as I still (very occasionally) get some mean people sending me weird messages, and would not want them showing up at my doorstep with a little box containing their chopped off penis or something else equally revolting.
One virtual friend of mine suggested that, after 6 months, a lot more traffic would come from Google. My favourite toy- Google analytics- shows a little pie chart, with sources of traffic. It breaks it up into “search engines”, “direct traffic” and “referral sites”. And, even though most of my traffic is still coming from referrals, the search engine one is indeed, picking up.
However. I now realize that the kind of readers who might accidentally stumble upon this blog are not the kind I would wish for. (Like some cool agents offering me book deals or magazine editors begging to write a regular column for them) Because I can see what they were hoping to find when they found me.
I can break the main ones into the following categories:
1) Azeri sex
2) Azeri prostitutes
3) Azeri sexy girls
4) Azeri porn
You see, I foolishly used the word sex in this blog a couple of times, and now I am forever doomed. I never knew that 'Azeri sex' was in such demand. I thought it was the oil.
I also once wrote about huge breasts. So, of course, I often see huge breasts in the search.
But occasionally, I get truly fascinating ones. Like this one:
“Azeries think Americans are stupid”
That is a whole sentence someone typed on Google, hoping to find some proof of Azeries discriminating against Americans.
Someone else searched for “free scary honey holes”- eh?-and someone for “Azeri Elka lesbian in London”
And, to summarize, I guess we should look at some basic results:
Total posts: 123
Total good posts: 5
Total agents discovering the blog and offering book deals: 0
Total new friends made- Quite a few, actually.
Total weirdoes- Not too many, to be honest. Expected a lot more.
Total stalkers- None known for sure, but maybe one.
Total magazine columns out of it- One. In MagAZine.
Total articles in other publications- A few, mostly pro bono.
But it has been a fun year. Here is to many more!
