What did you think when you read the title of this blog? Did your mind go to the notorious virus that the media is exploiting? Maybe you just thought I caught a football, but I’d understand if you thought the former.
About ten days ago I was at my dad’s birthday party and spent time with my nephews there. One of them had a cold. On Monday after (a week ago yesterday), I had a sore throat. By Tuesday morning I woke with a plugged nose and a stomach bug too. My stuffed head lasted through Friday, then coughing started. The coughing lasted two days. I never had a fever, and I’m 70% better today.
I mostly stayed home while I was sick, and I canceled a chiropractor appointment. I didn’t want to spread the cold, not to mention, I didn’t want to scare people . . . that’s the media’s job. Certainly, I didn’t have the notorious virus . . . my symptoms did not match the profile.
Switching gears a bit here, because I was at home and sick, I spent a lot of time on my computer. I worked on cleaning up the first draft of my Work-in-Progress novel. I also surfed the internet a lot. At one point, I fiddled around with checking out my blog stats and the searches that reach my blog.
For the first few years of Lori’s Lane, many searches landed on my post titled, It’s Not a Butt, It’s a Recipe. In those days it showed the search terms as, “Big White Butt.” You see, the first line of that blog post says, “No, this is not a picture of my big white butt.”The post is actually a recipe for focaccia bread.
After those first few years, WordPress stopped showing search terms for my blog. I don’t know if this happened to everyone, but all I can see now is that someone searched the internet and found an old post. The latest one that searches seem to be landing on is my post titled, The Feet Chronicles. Like I said, I can’t see the search terms, but it makes one go, hmm. 🤔
Needless to say, anyone searching either of those two subjects has likely been sorely disappointed when they found my posts.
How are you feeling these days? Anyone get the regular flu? Are you afraid of the notorious virus? What blog post have searchers found on your blog?
