Search Engine Terms: AKA I wrote about this shit

I was perusing the stats page of my WordPress, because who doesn’t, and a phrase in the Search Engine Terms box caught me eye. Usually there isn’t anything in there, so I thought to myself, if “independent artist that became big in 2012?” was able to link someone back to this blog post from December, then what else have people searched that brought them here?

Turns out a lot of random shit that people search have brought them here, and I would like nothing more than to share some of these things with the internet.

“penny bra” – If you find a bra for a penny, please let me know. However if it is made out of pennies I will politely decline.

“hoodie allen name drops one direction” – Yes, yes he does.

“playlist to get you through studying” – I hope that since you searched this, it brought you to the playlist that I made for studying, and not the blog post that somehow was linked to “penny bra”.

“toilet paper helmet” – I hope this is either school related, or you were trying to write a research paper about this beautiful invention.

“kyle armillotti sings sweetest mafia song” – The sweetest damn mafia song I’ve ever heard. Or maybe you meant Swedish. Hard to say really.

“does itunes suck” – No.

“ellie goulding halcyon itunes deluxe edition free download legal” – Not every day do you see someone searching the internet for the legal download of a song. Something tells me you could have used fewer words to find the same result though. (See above)

“oh shit i think they’re onto us” – Damn right I am onto you. Despite the fact that you used the correct version of “they’re”, I assure you I am a singular person… “you’re” is sufficient.

Amateur Neologist

I claim to be an amateur in a lot of things, so as long as we can all accept this, I am going to continue to share my amateur thoughts. Today, I decided that I am dubbing myself an amateur neologist, not to be confused with neurologist.

If you don’t know what a neologist is, then you may as well Google it because I figured out what it was by reverse Googling the definition, which I didn’t even know would have a word for until I found this one. If that seems like a really rude request considering you are reading this blog for the sole purpose of entertainment and probably don’t want to have to work for it, I only said that because neologism is what allowed the word google to become a verb. So cool! So meta!

Confession: I really just wanted to type “googling” and revel in the fact that the little red squiggly doesn’t show up underneath it like it does under lesser known proper-nouns-turned-verb. So here is the definition: a neologist is one who coins, uses, or introduces new words, or redefines old words in a language.

These are some of the words that I have created. I invite you all to use them as freely as you please under the circumstance that you kindly site your source verbally in MLA format after every sentence. Or you could just share this blog with anyone worthy of auscultating these beautiful creations.
