January search strings…

What a strange month. “Bushisms” was the top search term for the blog portion of The Rhetorica Network. That’s not so strange because I got into a snit this month about that particular feature on Slate. But what to make of the rest of the top five?

  • In second place: “bush book.” Related to Bushisms?
  • Third place: “daniel pearl death video.” Yikes!
  • Fourth place: “political definitions.” Close, but no cigar.
  • Fifth place: “pirate language.” How about Pirate Blog?

All the usual stuff–media bias and various rhetorical terms–managed to stay in the top ten. I got 8 hits looking for “college is a waste of time.” One might say the same thing about blogging.
