Typical Searches that Bring People to my Blog!

The Popularity Contest!

In case it’s true that popular demand means a page is really, REALLY good, here are my top 10 posts since last May (before that, Google wasn’t keeping track).  Some are obvious, but don’t ask me how some of these got to be the most popular:

In case you’re curious,  here’s Google’s report of the…

Top ten searches that land people here (often, against their will):

  • toronto homeschool mama – all day, every day.
  • adventures in mamaland – yay, that’s ME!
  • jennifer in mamaland – yay, this one is also ME!  I love being sought out!
  • rosh hashanah menu – here’s last year’s
  • adventures in mama land – yup, also me.  Why don’t people have my address, though?  Should I switch to a better URL?
  • carrot costume – cuz I made one for Naomi
  • hms sinkytown – reference to this cute cartoon which I didn’t draw
  • sukkot poem – whatever you call it, here’s your poem!
  • yom kippur cartoon – I didn’t draw it, but I like it

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die .
