The view from my office at Virunga National Park Headquarters at Rumangabo.
I looked at my blog today for the first time in ages. It was in a sad state, with no posts for nearly two months. No stories about my new life working for Virunga National Park in Congo. I figured that my family, friends, and strangers had probably abandoned my poor blog, put it to rest, figuring it was dead and buried.
So I clicked on the “stats” page, just to confirm that not a single person had read my blog in the last two months, but was shocked to see numbers there. Random numbers. February 13th apparently was quite a busy day on my blog for God-knows-what-reason. Did something happen on the 13th that I should know about?
But here’s the good part. I decided to check the section that tells what people googled to land on my blog. The following are actual google searches. I did not make any of these up.
First, the most popular search topic in the last month was variations on:
Land with bum in the butter (who would have thought that post would be useful to so many people) Click HERE to read post
The longest search line:
The shortest search:
And now for just a small sample of the good ones (and the post that some were led to):
I have to say that I have found this so entertaining that I will probably check back regularly for a laugh.
And so…(drum roll)…this is my re-introduction to writing again on this blog. I’m hoping to have committed, interested readers, not just weirdos googling bizarre things and ending up here, disappointed to find that I do not have information on “african culuture adorned with yellow battery acid.”
(And I’m going to work on this blog partly, well mostly, because my boss wants me to. He thinks people will read it. He thinks I can say things here that I probably shouldn’t on the official www.gorilla.cd blog. Doesn’t that sound enticing?)
Is anyone out there reading this?
(I will be posting simultaneously here and on my other blog: http://luannecadd.wordpress.com/)

In January of 2011, I joined Virunga National Park to work as the Communications Officer at the international level: the gorillacd website, donations, various projects, filming, etc. My passions are photography and design.
