As I mentioned before, the analyst within my RL self just luuuuuurves Google Analytics. I love the depth of the information it provides.

How many people hit my blog? When? Where from? How did they get here?

It's the last of those questions that's intriguing me at the moment. Just how did people reach my blog? Many, of course, are referrals from other blogs, those bloggers who've included me in their blogroll thingys. Some however, are via googling. And it's just amazing what people search for and what will lead them to me.

Like "reasonable desires". On 9th March a person googled that and their journey led here. Somehow. Because a search of my blog doesn't yield that phrase.

The best google search string though is "i need marnix". On 14th March, someone somewhere needed Marnix. Whether that was me, or some Dutch bloke they needed we'll never know. All we know is that they found me. I do hope I satiated their need.


  1. One of the most popular google search phrases that has found my blog is "blue balls"

    I don't even want to know.

  2. Is that a topic you write about a lot then?

  3. Marniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiix
