A dubious honor. Very dubious.

It was a dark and stormy night when our protagonist, WhatACard, discovered that her blog is the number three hit on google when one searches for examples of terrible writing.

Snap, if only I was number one. Hey, if you're going to be bad at something, be terrifically bad!

(For the record, it's not my blog that is the example of terrible writing. Well, maybe it is, but google can't search for that. It can't, right? It's just because I've actively discussed terrible writing here in the past. Really. Right? Right??? Oh no, Google is commenting on my writing, aren't they? I knew that Junior High reading level would come back to haunt me!)

How do you know this?

Oh, you've got to get sitemeter on your site! It's free, and yet one more addictive element of blogging. It shows you how many hits you get (kind of annoying...I'm always like "shoot, was this post no good? I lost readers!"), but also, the really cool part, you see how people arrive at your blog. The random google searches that bring people to your blog are HILARIOUS. So I saw just the other day someone arrived at my blog via a search for "examples terrible writing" and was immediately struck by the inherent insult that google directs people to ME with that search :)

I'll have to check that out. I'm still fairly new to blogging, so that would be interesting to see.
Stopping by from SITS!

even better than sitemeter, if you're up for it, get google analytics.

Too funny. At least you were nice enough not to say who was in first place.
