Long ListI was looking through my site’s set of stats.  Truthfully, I’ve never been one to stress or obsess with how many or how few visits this blog gets.  Originally, the whole thing was restricted to those who registered and I only let family and close friends do that.  It was my way of keeping everyone up to date with what ever was happening with me.  In other words is was a place to share what my kids were doing and the latest pictures of them.  Then some friends asked why didn’t I just use FaceBook so I did and the blog collected cyberdust.  Then stuff happened to me or I saw something in the real world or online that I wanted to say something about and I thought why not put it on that space GoDaddy was auto-renewing as a favor to me every year.  Then my good friend Tee Morris practically dragged me kicking and screaming to Twitter.  And then I found neat plug-ins that could tie it all together if I were so inclined.  Then a Twitter friend, Odin1eye, who I’ve come to trust and admire talked about the increase of visits his little corner was getting and I went looking for another plug-in for that and here we are.  I can see how many visits the place of mine gets.

It’s right there on my Dashboard whenever I happen to stop by myself to create a new post from a PC (not often.  Go ahead and check for yourself), whenever a new comment is waiting my approval (that happens even less) or when I check for updates to WordPress or one of the plug-ins installed.  But I was looking at the stats and say it tracked what searches led people here. Nearly all of them had to do with the game Word with Friends which speaks more to the popularity of the game than my blog but that’s cool anyway.  What caught my attention where some really odd ones.

Crazy Match = Crazy Loss

My Super Hero ShirtI’ve been getting a lot of invites to play Word with Friends that start “Are you the person that played ANTIQUER?” ever since sharing my best played word ever. The truth is this often leads to that person’s glee or perhaps disappointment in our match because I’m not a machine. I lose. I lose a lot. A fact my sister (MinderbenderXL for any who dare) relishes in reminding me. I don’t mind losing…that much. What I do mind are people who quit before the game is over. I’ve taken a lot of beatings and one thing is the same with each — not once have I quit the game. But as they say, you don’t have to take my word for it.

I don’t save every game I’ve played (I’m looking at you, Sis) but I have kept around some of the more memorable. They’re mostly losses and here are a few.
