Today is my one year blogging anniversary! I don’t have any cool giveaways or anything to celebrate this milestone, like Amy did for her one year anniversary. But I thought it would be fun to share the Google searches that have led to my blog over the past year. I think some people may have found what they were looking for, while others definitely did not.
1. turkeyrunner.blogspot.com, 67 entries
I don’t know who is searching for my blog this way, but wouldn’t it just be easier to type that into the address bar? I’m pretty sure they found what they were looking for, though. At least, it worked 67 times.
Out of 300-some posts I have done in the past year I had one sentence in one post that mentioned the bend and snap, in reference to walk-out push ups that you do during level 2 of the 30 day shred. Google sure did latch on to that one… Maybe it’s because I put ‘bend and snap’ in the title?
I’m wondering how far down on the search results list you have to go to find my blog when you Google ‘duck dynasty.’ Either way, I did mention Duck Dynasty a handful of times in the past year when referencing my favorite TV show.
These folks may have found what they were looking for, as I did a review of the Blue Ridge Half Marathon after I ran it for the second time last April. I’m pretty sure the marathon covers most of the half marathon course, so hopefully it was helpful.
I do have two lovable, slobbery 100+ pound babies that happen to be bloodhounds. I even once did a whole post with facts all about bloodhounds. We also celebrated Hank’s third birthday and Scout’s first birthday and I did posts centered around them on those dates.
I spent a week in Virginia Beach last April and did all of my running that week on and around the concrete boardwalk. If anything, these folks at least found some pictures of what the Virginia Beach boardwalk looks like.
I have two of those. They’re full grown now, but I still refer to them as my puppies. I hope that hasn’t caused any confusion.

Funny, I had a post called ‘I got to go running!’ after I had a shin pain scare late during marathon training. One weekend I had a 14 mile run turn into two miles, but after taking a week off I was able to meet up with my running buddy and get in a 10 mile run.

They definitely did not find what they were looking for. The name of my blog actually comes from my being a Hokie Alumni and a big Virginia Tech fan, as well as a runner.
I’m kind of bummed I did an entire series on chickens and no one found my blog when Googling chicken-related search entities. I guess there’s room for improvement in year two!
If you’re a blogger, how long have you had your blog?
