Meta-Post: or, Why are Readers Here?

The WordPress tools provide a way to see why a reader has arrived at this site. The most interesting (to me) is search terms. And here’s the lifetime list, ranked according to frequency.

dummy version of the book scarlet letter 1

I’m glad some people find my blog by searching for some variant on my name, although I expect I’m responsible for finding myself at least some of the time. It’s as easy to Google your own blog as it is to type in a URL. I’m sympathetic to the poor fellow or gal who searched for “dummy version of the book scarlet letter” and ended up on my site.
