top ten most surprising search phrases that sent traffic to this blog last month

Do you like the catchy title for this post?

No particular order here.  Do love Google Analytics, though.

  1. “dear professor i would like to inform that i couldn’t make an assignment because my internet connection it was very bad” (that is awfully specific, no?)
  2. “the people in my academy class are assholes” (I wonder if what this person found here was useful)
  3. “the theme for lesser blessed” (I’m not doing your homework for you, cool guy)
  4. “will they shut down the school if 15% of kids are sick” (what are you planning?)
  5. “sample graded spanish essays” (you were definitely disappointed)
  6. “post traumatic stress doctors elk river mn” (you, too)
  7. “five stages of grief rip-off” (that’s fair, actually)
  8. “in what type of courses do you tend to earn the highest grades?” (not mine, pumpkin)
  9. “i swore to make my home work assignments my first priority” (believe it or not, 7 people found the blog with this search string — sounds like February regrets if ever I’ve heard them)
  10. “i got a doctorate am i a dr” (well, not that kind)

How did you meander over here, good reader?  Hilarious search term or something less entertaining?

  1. Awesome, haha! I had to check some of mine after reading this; sadly, the oddest one was a search for an out of print linguistics book I talked about once.

    As for how I found your blog, a friend shared a link to your “five stages of grading”, and it described me so well, I’ve been reading since, haha!

  2. These are great!

    As for me – it was a fellow grad student & Facebook friend who shared a link to your “Five Stages of Grading” post.

  3. I don’t know how I got here…NCTE? A referral? But it sure has been worth it!
