I'm callin' you out.

For those of you who are not using Google Analytics, you need to be. Not only is it an awesome way to see just where your blog falls in the big, bad world of the internet, it gives you a really deep look into your readers. (It is also an endless source of entertainment.)

I know you guys know all about me and some of my most horrific, terrifying, and embarrassing moments… but just who the hell are you?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, while blogger tells me I have 61 followers, Google Analytics tells me over 100 people read my blog on a peak day.

While I knew most of you were from the United States, I had no idea you hailed from all but one of them (No one cares about South Dakota anyway.) Nor did I realize you represented 492 different cities

I never even imagined you international readers went beyond Canada and the UK to reach places like Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Norway, Slovenia, Croatia, and over 50 other countries.

Most of you use Firefox when reading my blog. Others prefer Internet Explorer, Safari, and Chrome. One of you even used a Playstation 3. (WTF?)

For those of you who found me using Google search, the keywords you used mostly are related to tattoos and fish bowls (My favorite of which was “bad ass fish tattoos”) But a couple other gems are “pissing in swimmin “, “jeneys boobs“, “tamponpanty “ and “jeney movie porn.” There were also about seven of them that had to do with shitting/pooping your pants.

I was also shocked to see how many searches were actually for my blog or my name directly.

Most of you seemed to have found me through LiLu’s TMI Thursdays, while others stumbled over from MJenks’, JAG’s, Ben's, and Carrissa's pads. A couple of you are even creepy enough to follow me on Twitter or my feeds on Facebook.

So now that I have an idea of who you hooligans really are, come out of the woodwork already (Especially you people from Dilworth, MN… you’re like 10 minutes away!) I am declaring this an unofficial de-lurker day.*

Comment and tell me more about you! If you’re uncomfortable with going public (I would be too, don’t be ashamed), go ahead and e-mail me at jeney (dot) anderson (at) gmail (dot) com.

I promise I don’t bite.

I just drool a lot.

* But that doesn't give you jerks who comment regularly a free pass.

I guess I am a stalker because I do follow you on twitter too, but you are hilarious and when I'm feeling down your blog cheers me up.
About me in a nutshell...here goes...my blog's name is Blondiesblondemoments..but I use to have a blog called blondiegoesblog. I had issues with mean readers commenting so I changed it.

Anywho...my real name is Tia. I am Irish and was born on St Patrick's Day (which I love)
I have two daughters, and currently working on getting rid of my dead weight and getting a divorce. I live in Florida which you can't tell by the weather and oh I flood my step mom and dad's house frequently because I forget to turn off the water (leak under the house)
TMI? maybe..but you asked...lol

'tis little ole me from ohio. i've been using stat counter for a long time and am now trying to add google analytics. time will tell if i did it right. i love stalking my stalkers!

Organic Meatbag said...

Well, I'm from Kentucky as you know, Jeney, and I originally found you through the search term "My penis is caught in a slush puppy machine and I hope Jeney has some advice for me".... strange bed-fellows we make...hahahaha

MJenks said...

Wait...all we had to do to see your boobs was to google it?

Sheesh.

Okay, I am NOT a Lurker. I am a "Fan". FAN I say! Not too "Single White Female" for you is it? Wait, are you old enough to know what I am referencing? Why do I follow you? Two words: Miss. You.

I read you through my Reader so Google probably has tabs on me. No one escapes the Google Overlords! I'm in Canada using Chrome because I am awesome.

I love the search terms people use to find me. I mean what brings anyone to go type "Can goats catch herpes on a rainbow?" into any search engine? I want to meet THAT person.

Amy said...

I attempted to do the Google thing with my blog but I am technologically ra-tarded so we'll see what happens with that. You know I stalk you daily so surprises there.

JeffScape said...

HAHAHAHA!

I've yet to get a South Dakota reader, either. I'm wondering if their IP gateways are out of state.

Helen said...

I'm a follower so I'm pretty sure you know who I am...

And I love the random search terms from Statcounter, so I'll try analytics when I have some time!

carissa said...

Well I'm here and pretty much have reached stalker status. I can't believe I haven't used google analytics yet. I use something called Cpanel? I dunno... I'm not sure how it all works I still feel new at this. But dude, people and their search terms are WEIRD!!

DC Princess said...

*stalk*

*poke*

*runs away*

LiLu said...

I love love love playing around with my stats. Especially the searches... they are HILARIOUS! :-)

SMiChick said...

I went to school with you, complete with haunting your apt. sr. year when my shower broke, and my roommates wouldn't let me use theirs (weirdos)! Then we all graduated and got "real" jobs, so I moved to CT to work for Yale's IT Dept. And I'm terrible about updating my own blog.

I'm not sure what the point is of writing this down, you also know I frequent your blog and where I am. For those who don't and care...
Hi, my name is Jeff and I am an old man. There, I've admitted it. I've recently tried two sports I haven't played in a long time and hurt alternating ankles.
I also have finally started a blog with my wonderful girlfriend where we put up a ton of random videos and the occasional actual post. Weheartcookiedough was inspired by Jeney's antics, though I seem to have more trouble deciding on what to write than she does.

Lady V said...

Yeah I'm lost when it comes to Google shit! I'll have to look into this shizzlebenizzlewit....thanx hun!

Maureen said...

I'm actually not a lurker...yet. This is my first time here, but I'll probably come back. I haven't read a lot but I like green so I like your background. And background color is super important in my blog reading. Also, I am fascinated by this google analytics thing. Now I can figure out where the 5-10 people who read my blog are coming from and what they're doing. Stalking the stalkers.

coors cowgirl 21 said...
