Sean's Blog

My hand is my most famous part

I was looking through the stats for my website today, and was amused to discover a couple of things.

First, one of the referring sites to my site was the blog of a somewhat famous person.

It turned out that, in comments about Mooney going to the midwest to speak, someone remarking on Michigan made a reference to using one’s hand as a map, and linked to this image, which I created a few years ago.

Second, I noticed that, among the top web searches that lead to hits on my site, some of the search phrases for a few months running were variations on “Michigan hand map.”

Third, though this might not be related to that image, for multiple months other referring sites were image searches.

I tried entering “Michigan hand map” on google image search, and I was hit #16. Strangely, if you do just “Michigan hand,” there seem to be more actual hands, but mine isn’t in there. At least, it isn’t in the first 200 hits.

Website and feed updates

Over the weekend I fixed some links, added some content, etc. Updates have been made to the comics, music, people, and resume pages on the site. There is also a new Sad Lib posted.

As for the blog feed, I’ve added an RSS 2.0 version for those who can’t read Atom (they’re both linked in the sidebar), and I’ve started publishing the full content of the posts in the feed, rather than the first paragraph or so, because links didn’t seem to be coming through. Hopefully they will from now on.

If anyone desires, say, an RSS 1.0 feed, let me know.

Shiny new blog

Like my super-creative blog title? 😉

Welcome to my weblog. I decided to do this because I thought it would be fun, for one, and might be a good way to provide news about me and interesting links, etc. without having to send lots of e-mails to lots of friends and family members.

That said, I don’t know how often I’ll post here. It probably won’t be every day, but we shall see…
