200 Trivia and a Giveaway

This is my 200th post.

That may sound like a lot, but most bloggers do 200 (or more) per year.

I’ve been blogging for 4.

I got a little lazy between 2008 and 2010.

So in honor of my 200th, here’s some random facts about the blog:

Pageviews to date: 29,510

Most popular post to date: Downsizing Christmas, Dec. 7th, 2011

Top 5 countries for viewership: US (obvs), Russia, Canada, UK, and Germany.

Total Comments: 119 (come on kids pick up the slack!)

Top 5 weirdest organic search keywords (aka what people search that lead them to my blog):

5: “Birdhouses girly”:  6 different people searched this and found my blog.  I have never blogged about bird houses…. so…. thats weird.

4: “My legs are white and muscular”: 2 people googled this and found my blog.  Perhaps, google is trying to tell me something?

3: “Beer and meat”: I have no idea.  I run a fashion/decor blog.

2: “Cactus soap dispenser”:  How pissed would you be if you were looking to unload some cash on a cactus soap dispenser and found my blog instead?  They must have liked what they saw cuz they stuck around and read a few posts.  Yay for google randomness.

1: “Funeral decor ideas”: Thanks to the hideous mistake that was the Coffee Filter Wreath, I now draw readers from funeral related google searches.  awesome.

To show you guys how much I appreciate/love/gravel at your feet I have an awesome giveaway set up for you!

I can’t express how much I appreciate you guys!  This blog would be nothing without you reading my randomness and looking at my outfits.  I wish I could invite you all over for a good old fashioned wine drinking and Sex and the City watching marathon.

While I dream up ways to make that happen, I’ll just have a drink in your honor.  Cheers to you guys!
