Google Analytics tells me to talk about Tegan and Sara more

As you know, I have a blog.
This is it in fact. Welcome!

You may have gotten here by typing different key words into Goole. Google Analytics tells me what these words are so I can see how people find me and what I've written that garners interest to the general public. 

Apart from my twitter feed, which feeds my Facebook page, the most common way people get to my blog is by typing in "Tegan Quin," half of the band Tegan and Sara. I interviewed Ms. Quin in 2008 when I worked at the Eureka Reporter. 

I know they have a huge following and I'm proud to be part of it in a small way. It's also nice to get new readers to my blog.

In addition, I must say I listened to their newest album, Sainthood, yesterday and it's vibrant, powerful and mature. I love that these girls aren't just sticking to what made them popular. They keep pushing themselves to express in ways they haven't previously. 

My favorite track is Sentimental Tune, I love the lyrics, "Hard-hearted don't worry I'm ready for a fight. Unnerved, the nerve, you're nervous, nervous that I'm right."
The way she sings it is forceful and fun.  

So thank you, Tegan and Sara, for making beautiful music and attracting more people to my blog. 

Another top keyword people typed in to find my blog: "glass blowing in Arcata." 
I wrote one story about that ages ago. Love that it's still getting me hits. I guess the message is focus on glass blowing and Tegan and Sarah and my blog will be wildly successful.

Haha - readership doubled yesterday. I guess it does work. But don't worry folks, I'm not going to change my writing just to please Google.
