How to Find This Blog (Apparently)

Okay, so this isn’t a post about the effects of sex steroids on bone health. Not even close.  In fact, I haven’t even started that post yet because I just can’t seem to get caught up with life in general.  But I thought I would make a quick post about something that, to me anyway, is kind of funny and interesting.

Recently, I made this blog “visible” to search engines.  That, in and of itself, is not so interesting, but one of the more cool things about Word Press (the host of this blog) is the statistical package that is automatically supplied along with a blog.  Actually, it’s why I chose Word Press after Matt Kailey recommended it.

Anyway, one of the more interesting statistical readouts is “Search Engine Terms.”  In other words, I get to see what terms people have used on search engines such as Go ogle that have resulted in their discovery of this blog.   (You noticed I misspelled the “G” word – I don’t know if it’s possible, but I sure as hell don’t want hoards of people finding this blog by having that name in here.)

Surprisingly, the search term used most often to find this blog is “americantransman.”  All total, there are 42 hits on this blog from that term or some permutation thereof.  Why, you might ask, is that surprising when it’s the name of this blog?  Well, I guess I am surprised that there are 42 people who remember it.  Or perhaps there’s just one person who has searched for this blog 42 times using that term.

I’ll list the rest of the terms below for any of you interested in checking them out.  When I read them, I get an image in my mind of the person who might have been sitting in front of a computer typing in those terms.  I imagine what type of person it was, what their motives might have been and what kind of frame of mind they were in.   For some of them, I wish I could reach through cyberspace and talk to them, but since I can’t, I’ll just list their terms.

Okay, that’s all for now. The next post will really, honestly, truly be about bone stuff.  I promise.

    No. Did not get a date out of it : – ). I think I was searching for gifts to give transman. Anyway will pass this site on to the transguys I know. I think this could be a very good site bec its the only one I’ve seen with a focus on medic transissues. There are a lot of you tube vids made by transmen who’ve got cancer and transmen with eating disorders. But they are personal stories. You give the medic side to it. Do you need me to send you the links of the vids? What about transmen who are pre T and have PCOS… can you do a blog entry about it??

    Thanks for the comments about my blog. I appreciate it.

    I am aware of the YouTube videos. There is an entire FTM video community on YouTube which, I must admit, I am not a part of, mainly because I prefer to read than to watch. Feel free to post links here in the comments if you would like.

    The PCOS issue… ah yes, very interesting, that topic. I will eventually make a blog post about PCOS in trans guys. It’s a little further down on my topic list, but it’s there. So many topics, so little time. Stay tuned….
