Occasionally, someone reaches my blog through a search engine. It is sometimes amusing to see what search strings point people to my blog.
Sometimes, someone will search for a particular person and reach my blog: for example, David Alan Black (Number one search string… I hope they also reach his web site.), Harold Hoehner, Everett Ferguson, Andrew T. Lincoln, etc.
Sometimes, someone will search for a string that, I think, is very appropriate given the topic of this blog: for example, “edification” (Number two search string), “forsake not assembling”, “pastor’s responsibilities in a church”, “church as ekklesia”, etc.
Then, there are the search strings that are… well… just strange. I’m sure they make sense to someone. But, I have no idea why these particular search strings would point to my blog: “myths about slaves in the church”, “mael or fellation or maczde or carpate” (Yes, I know that I link to the blog of someone named MaÃ«l, but I don’t even know what the other words mean. I’m almost afraid to put them here…).
I can’t wait to see other search strings that point an unknowing internet surfer to my blog.
