People searching for info about the Jamis Beatnik contributed a huge portion of annual visits. The funny thing is that I didn’t actually review the Jamis Beatnik, suggesting that the primary function of this blog is to waste people’s time.
Also, a huge portion of site visits are people also complaining that they can’t do any sit-ups. I hope they feel less alone when they realize that I also can’t do any sit-ups.
The most bizarre keyword source is people searching for Ms. Stephanie Brodegard. I guess she’s either popular – or being internet stalked. Whoever comes to the blog looking for info about Ms. Brodegard will be disappointed, however. You’re much better off going here or here.
However, people arriving at the site looking for info on how to make a patrol flag will be absolutely blown away by my extraordinarily fantastic flag. I’ve also got a nice collection of Mormon-themed PostSecrets.
