My Forum of Bloggy Frivolity

Jami Gold entertained us a few months back with a fabulous post on what we could learn from spam, and I just wanted to say thanks. Whereas before I’d just browse my spam folder, giving each piece a glance to see it was valid, things have changed.

NOW it’s the Forum of Bloggy Frivolity.

I’m having a kickass time in the Spam folder these days. (As if I didn’t have enough to keep me entertained.)

I mean, there’s the usual compliments like:
I’ve scoured hundreds of blogs and have never found clarity like yours…

The hard to decipher comments, such as:
i am a student of higher- ranking sharp kindergarten, beginner in english ,and here i be deficient in to improve my english, i promise everybody here paucity to facilitate me

The lonely stale student who “just wants to be friends” (IYKWIM):
My name is Esar i am from Egypt,cairo. i am 18 years stale. i am not supreme in english and i hope to be talented and uplift my english in this site and i faith making friends from all countries.

I’ve been offered everything from porn to viagra…from crack to a$$ crack. I’ve even been offered cows.

Yep, that enticement went something like this:
If you would consent to visit me in my country, I will provide three cows. You will live in a grand spacious home in my city.

I kind of liked that one about the three cows…

As y’all know, I dated for a lo-o-ong time before I met my husband, and I never once had anyone offer me anything impressive like a cow. I was lucky to get a steak from some of those bozos.

And just when I thought my late-night giggle-fests couldn’t get any better…along came Leanne Shirtliffe with Search Bombing. (Click here to find out how to do it.)

It’s safe to say that Leanne and her Search Bombing posse of followers have really jazzed up the search engine terms coming into More Cowbell. This is now my #2 spot for Bloggy Frivolity.

I’ve always enjoyed the usual search terms that bring readers here:

  • nerd panties
  • dancing on a table
  • dirty computer terms
  • crochet underwear for men
  • fluffy kittens

[All things I love! I’m just sayin…]

But in the last quarter or so, things have REALLY gotten interesting, and much more creative. Now I get people searching for:

  • pantyhose bondage
  • superman cocksox
  • man with snake eyeball
  • table bought at garage sale with witch pictures in the drawer story

I don’t think my posts have changed so very much this year so I’m putting it down to Leanne’s diabolical mind. It sure does entertain me to see what brings people to my blog.

Amber West did a post on expanding our sphere of influence and being open to new people and things. Perhaps the “man with snake eyeball” is a future friend? As long as he doesn’t whip out a Superman cocksock, we should do fine.

Happy Monday, y’all!

What gives you the most Bloggy Frivolity? Is it on your own blog or someone else’s? Do you read your spam or scope out your search terms? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!

    Hilarious post. Thanks for directing us to Leanne’s blog. I can now check the search words people use when Googling me. My blog frivolity is checking if I have any new comments. Creating word clouds with Wordle is fun too.

    6yHello Jenny!
    I read your post on how you met you husband. I usually read an old post while I am here unless I write a longish reply on my thumb-keyboard! Your dating post was very sweet & I got a kick that you had a dating committee! So one of my favorite blogging frivolties is reading past posts on your blog. Other ones include past posts on Piper Bayard’s blog (www.piperbayard.wordpress.com), Donna Newton’s blog (www.donnanewtonuk.com), and then doing google searches with a silly word, and placing it with “blog post.”

      I wrote this early this morning & my phone fell out of my hands and posted the comment itself. Scratch the 6y (or maybe my phone is trying to say something) and add “Monique” at the end of the comment. I think it’s an ok comment for today.

      When I read Kristen’s blog later today, I thought of you! She had a huge surprise for us!
      Thanks for everything, Jenny –

    And, was inspired to take a look at the most recent searches bringing visitors to my blog. Nothing too interesting, and I’ve had some real snorkers, but this one was, at least, odd:

    ‘Hold tight my twist.’

    Huh?

    On a side note, I am happy to report that my entry has since been resent. WOOT!

    LOL! Thanks for the link, Jenny. 🙂

    For me, spam seems to come in waves. I consistently get around 100 spam comments a day (at least), but the topics come in clumps depending on however spammers decide these things. Do they have board meetings where they all vote?

    “This month, let’s send out pleas to help us find snow removal companies in Poland!” (real spam) or “No, this month, let’s send out really long comments analyzing the world’s economy!” (also real) How do they come up with that and why do they all send out similar messages at the same time? #InquiringMinds

    My favorite is no longer a contest, however. My “while this is a low-class hornet’s snuggery” spam comment inspired me to write a story that might be published. You can’t beat that. 🙂
