Search Party


As anyone with a blog or a website knows, people online can find or happen upon our blogs using a variety of search terms. Some of those terms that have popped up on my blog admin section are logical and understandable, some are pretty strange, and still some others are downright funny.

I’ll start with a few of the logical search terms. My followers – at least the minuscule few who’ve visited since the beginning – will understand how these terms led searchers to Jennifer’s Journal:

  • Jennifer Kelland Perry, Jennifer Kelland – moi, the most logical 
  • cats at the ocean
  • cat ice
  • tentative cat
  • cats exploringyes indeedy, you will find cats, ocean and ice here 
  • Newtown, Newfoundland – where?
  • Maisie and Vivian – and what are the cats’ names?

    Cats on Ice - Spring Thaw in Iceberg Alley
    Cats on Ice – Spring Thaw in Iceberg Alley

Then the cat theme begins to get humorous:

behold my French feline eyes - oo-la-la
behold my French feline eyes – oo-la-la
  • cat on an iceberg
  • fancy words for purr
  • jennifer with cat eyes
  • jennifer feline eyes
  • french jennifer cat eyes

Some other topics are right on the money:

  • polar bears in Newfoundland – a popular topic, only once for this blog
  • speciesism rantone of my very few rants
  • pictures of patch quilt on clothesline – beautiful Greenspond 
  • little boy working on car – our grandsontenJ
  • you are my one and only blog – ❤
  • first date journal – ❤
  • Jennifer in varadero – Cuba!
  • heart turned cold quotes – I did pen a dark poem once…
  • journaling about bitterness – okay, twice!
  • reasons of dreams and meaning of dreams, see sleeping mouse in dreambecause I put the word dream in a couple of my titles, I’m guessing
  • menopause feel like a furnace, perry menopause symptoms, hot flash journaling, internal combustion menopause a topic of great concern out there, apparently, though I only blogged about it once
  • very cute images of love peace and understanding but all they found were Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello!
  • Jennifer’s progress my novel, the sequel? inquiring minds want to know
  • famous Jennifers in fictionnot me, but…maybe…someday?

Still giggling at the rest below. You will not find anything about the following topics in my blog:

  • having guy visitors in winter – shhh, don’t tell Paul!
  • cat foot ptarmigan a new cross-breed?
  • scarlet woman – just call me the whore of Babylon
  • iceberg smelling  hold on: is that a thing??
  • Jennifer is a racist blog – yikes! I swear you’ve got the wrong blog!

And my personal favourite:

  • Jennifer Kelland Perry the platypus

 Turns out there is an explanation for this one.
I just learned about this fellow when I did a search.

Perry the Platypus

And there you have it. Someone looking for a platypus found me.

    1. Elizabeth, if you click on the hyperlinks of menopause and heart turned cold, you will see the posts from way back when. You commented on the Take My Advice poem. 🙂
      Prostitution! That’s an odd one for sure!


      1. So I did… although I would not term the sentiments of the emotions of that poem as “bitter”. Heartbroken maybe, but not ‘bitter’. Interestingly, that was the post and poem I linked to Diana’s blog and ‘introduced’ you to each other 🙂

  1. Wow, Jennifer, I’ve never researched the searches before on my blog. Eye-opening to say the least. The most intriguing one I could see was ‘memoirs of a dragon’ I’ll have to look that up when I get back from dinner. I might be missing out on a lovely blog. Thanks for another fun post. 🙂
    Blessings & hugs ~ Wendy


  2. I knew who Perry the Platypus was from Phineas and Ferb (one of my son’s old favs!) Anyways…a couple of funny ones I’ve gotten recently are, “nurse kelly takes,” and “just shake your head and let it go!” They really are quite funny to read on my stats page! Great post! 🙂

  3. “iceberg smelling”—Ha! I wonder about the person who searched for that.

    It’s always amusing to see what lands people on our blogs. I’ve had some fun ones, but I’ve had some creepy ones too. For example, “Who is Carrie Rubin’s father”. Hmm, who exactly wants to know?…

            1. I love visiting blogs too, but find there are a large handful shall we say that I can regularly comment on. I hope my likes mean something to the others because they do to me. Blog visiting is a great way to enjoy a break from writing, isn’t?
