I think one of the best things about being an author is the Google searches. I have a legitimate reason to Google "how bobbleheads are made" or "roller derby referee signals." (We went to the derby this past weekend, and it was FRAWESOME. Whoever came up with it is a certifiable genius, plain and simple.) And really, in what other profession can you reasonably Google these things? Unless you are a bobblehead salesman who moonlights as a derby ref, there probably aren't many.
Although if you are, please email me, because I might want to write a book about you.
But then for some strange reason, I turn around and laugh at the search terms that bring people to my site. Like, somebody recently found me by searching for "the universe loves me," and I often get visitors looking for some "hallo-wow." And I think, "What on earth would make someone google THAT?!?"
And then I realize, "Duh. I would totally Google that. And then tell people it was for my job, which might not necessarily be true."
What weird things have you googled lately?
