End of year blog stuff

I thought I would close off the year with a look back at my first two months of blogging. My first post was made on October 30th. I didn't plan on starting a blog but I needed to register for blogger to make a comment on a friend's post and I just started farting around with the platform y voila. Here we are two months and 75 posts later and I am loving it. Number one it's like free therapy, number two, I love to talk and this is a great way to not be interrupted and number three I have learned about a whole new world on the web and "met" some great bloggers.

My basic stats (from Google Analytics):

4344 visits
6,800 page views
1390 absolute unique visitors

Google searches that have brought people to my blog:

Cancun Canuck (and all its variations)
Geena Davis sawn in half
Ni modo
Iguana tattoo
Mayan paintings
Cat throwing up white foam
Cancun Christmas
Snowfall Cancun (someone actually searched this?)
Gambling Cancun
Virgin of Guadelupe
Boss doesn't like me pregnant (huh?)
Bus pirahna
Buying milk in Cancun
Cancun beaches
Writing group Mazatlan
Cats rule dogs are crap
Mexican posadas
My finger is oozing
Pinche gato
Remedy for frozen car doors
Slang for nipple in Spanish
What to buy a Mexican woman for Christmas
Throwing up white foam after drinking alcohol

And the list goes on, but those ones either made total sense or no sense at all to me, some of them made me laugh out loud.

A big thanks to all of you reading, I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and that we find lots to talk about in 2008. Salud!

Brice, you started this whole blogging thing, big thanks to you and a Happy New Year! (a big dirty kiss for you too but don't tell Courtney)

Wayne, such kind words, thanks! Glad I got to meet you before 2007 ran out!

Teresa, I am feeling a bit better, vodka on NYE helps, haha. Thanks for visiting, hope you come around often! Feliz año nuevo!

Feliz Año Nuevo... Pues I didn't know we started our blogs in the same month! However, I didn't have a nice intro entry to kick things up. That's quite the life Canucka. I've been commenting on different blogs since 2006 though. It was nice to have "met" you in the blogosphere in 2007 and keep looking forward to a new year of blogging and other babosadas.
How were the grapes?

Erica- I have Google Analytics installed, it shows me all my stats including Google searches. Sitemeter is good too, it will show the sources of all your visitors, and as a bonus, all the searches, yahoo or other search engines, not just Google, though it doesn't lay it out as neatly as Analytics. Let me know if I can help with that!
