Happy Monday, awesome readers! :)
I was looking at my blog stats, and of course, things I found there never cease to amaze me. People seem to find Catch the Lune using every kind of unimaginable keywords. Some people lurk in this site from place I’ve never thought. Posts when I babble seem to get higher stats (why oh why). Those stuffs make me think about when I first start blogging, and all the goods that come from it.
Being a good procrastinator I am, of course I have to put down whatever I'm supposed to do and write these things in my Monday Muse post. (In fact I was supposed to be writing my essay by the time I wrote this, but well… some things can wait #legitprocrastinator)
My Blog and Things I’ll Never Understand in It
“PICTURES OF BOYS” KEYWORD IN GOOGLE SEARCH
Let’s see. Some of you type “pictures of boys” and you got yourself here. Interesting.
I know I’m supposed to gush about cute guys’ abs and Ian Somerholder and Matt Bomer. What am I doing writing reviews about books. Huh.
Too bad, I’m not too good in writing about cute guys. I can’t ever get past “OMG IAN MATT CHACE TOO PERFECT GAAAH TAKE OFF MY MONEY
Not good enough to make blog post, no.
|Oh yeah, definitely the kind of stuff that I actually want to write about.|
But here’s Douglas to compensate little lambs who are lost here. Yeah, I’m perfectly content with Chace for now, thank you.
|Ugh. Those looking-through-your-soul-eyes. *wipe drools*|
LARGE RUSSIAN AUDIENCE
Interestingly, my biggest blog audience after USA (Americans! I love you!) is Russia. Strange, because:
1. I've only read a handful books set in Russia.
2. As you see, this blog is written in English.
3. I don’t remember having interacted much with any Russian blogger.
And thus, the reason why my 2nd biggest audience are Russians is my biggest mystery.
Here's a shoutout to my silent Russian readers! Please don’t be lurkers and talk to me, guys! I occasionally serve biscuits and tea, and I promise I don’t bite. Let’s talk about the beauty of St. Petersburg and the aching love story of Tatiana and Alexander in The Bronze Horseman series! x)
Как дела? Меня зовут Хилда. Приятно познакомиться! (finally my Russian class pays off. I promise it’s not Google Translate)
HIGHEST ALL-TIME STATISTICAL HITS FOR MONDAY MUSE POSTS
Come on, guys. Catch the Lune is a serious literary blog (please let me dream) and it’s not like I gush about cute guys every week. Somehow the posts with the biggest hits are giveaway (understandable) and my Monday Muse series (questionable) though. I don’t remember ever put anything important in this… I think I only talk about something slightly serious things sometimes. For some reasons, people seem to find this blog more amusing when I rave nonstop about cute guys / the sweetness of Peeta / Finnick and how hot he is. Wait, they are basically the same thing.
I’m not going to clutter this blog with my rambling, but I’ll do my best to post Monday Muse regularly. Please do check out every Monday to read a little bit of silliness (and whatever in my mind at that time haha)! ;)
COMMENTS ON MY ABOUT ME PAGE
It’s so lovely that you guys take some time commenting in my "About Me "page! It’s also the page with biggest hits in this blog. Originally, I forgot to turn off comment section in that page but now I’m so grateful. You guys are so kind for taking your time reading it. <3
LETTERS INSIDE OUT AS ONE OF THE TOP REFERRERS TO THIS BLOG
Letters Inside Out is a wonderful blog managed by Amanda, and I remember participating in one book tour she organizes. It’s a bit confusing though that people seems to find my blog through her site! I don’t interact much with lovely Amanda, and I think my blog is not listed in her blogroll. In addition, she has quit blogging for the meantime so her site is down now. So why… is it still top referrer?
- I guess some things are never meant to be solved.
- You guys could be from any nation and I'd still thank you for reading this blog! Thanks! :)
- I hope you guys will be okay with me posting totally strange things like this!
- Yeah yeah, this post is
mainlyslightly an excuse for me to post Chace Crawford's picture in my blog. Major needs to blog about him, sorry! :P
Is there anything in your blog that confuses you as well? Like many hits on unexpected posts or hilarious keyword search on your stats? :)
Thank you for reading this week's Monday Muse! Have a wonderful day, everyone! :)
