One of the coolest things about having a blog is that you can see what search engine terms have led people to your site. This is something both exciting and amusing: exciting when you feel like people who have important questions are finding places where those questions are being answered, amusing when people search for bizarre things and find you whether they want to or not.
Most popular search: SBLGNT
Not surprising. We seemed particularly popular when we were giving stuff away.
Second most popular search: walking toward jerusalem blog
This one is exciting because it means people are looking for us, specifically! Other less popular variations of our blog title (including ones that get the “towards” right) are also prevalent.
Apparently we are sought out by those seeking moderate viewpoints:
moderate christian denominations, moderate denominations, +evangelical +blog +moderate, evangelical moderates, moderate evangelicalism, moderate evangelical, moderate evangelical church, most liberal evangelical denominations, moderate church denominations, list moderate evangelical denominations, christian denominations moderate, moderate evangelical churches, denomination conservative theology moderate socially, moderate evangelical organizations “2010”, moderate evangelical church associations, moderate mainline churches, moderate evangelicals, what is a good christian denomination for a moderate protestant, moderate evangelical christians.
It makes me happy to think that we are there for them, hopefully providing hope that they are not alone in the world. I remember when I was first transitioning into moderate evangelicalism in late high school, I knew nobody in real life who was asking the questions I was, and hence the Internet was very important for me.
We also get a TON of searches for things relating to Tertullian and women. Tertullian is apparently a very popular/unpopular fellow, and hence we are becoming popular by proxy. Kinda awesome.
Some more amusing ones:
“power of sin” “boy and” (Anyone have any idea what that means??)
right mind (Yes, we are in our right minds, thank you very much.)

monty python help help I’m being repressed

complementarian blog (Haha—search FAIL!)
walking toward have sex (I don’t really know what this means.)
rick perry jesus

complimentarian [sic] argument weak
The last one is probably the one that made me the happiest. Yes! Let us tell you about its weaknessess, muahahahaha!
Anyway, that is a nice little summary of how people get to our blog. Also, at least once person keeps clicking to us from Google Kenya. We don’t know who you are, but we think you are AWESOME!
