I’m sometimes deeply amused when I read the statistics for this website about the search engine queries that have led people here. For the most part they are searches for recipes, or for information on a game that I’ve beta tested and be able to talk about – all fairly innocuous, but every now and then I see something that makes me grin and wonder where its come from.
One that particular popped off the page yesterday was the one that I’ve adopted as the title
of this post. I have to admit to something of a bemused reaction – somewhat akin to being outed by a random web search for something I wasn’t aware of; and so it sent me searching across the website to work out how on earth that search term had led to this blog.
Knowing that I’ve written about my tattoo here and posted a picture of it already, I guess I could see where a search for tattoos would come from – and given that I’ve labelled it as being based on Anglo Saxon runes, its perhaps not surprising that searches for Saxon tattoos seem to land here quite regularly.
The other part of the query had me stumped for a while. I know I’ve never written about polyamory here so it wouldn’t appear in any of the various tags and bits of metadata generally. And then it hit me – there’s a link in my sidebar to a website that I love reading called The Polyamorous Misanthrope, which – as the name suggests, is relationship advice for and by polyamorous relationships.
Why do I like it? Well the writing is spiky and fierce at times, but it is above all emotionally honest. The advice and intent demonstrated regularly on that site seems to speak to universal lessons on how to be the best you can in your relationships, whether you are mono, poly or something else entirely. Go have a read and be entertained, but above all given something to think about. Dare you.
