I enjoy looking at the search terms people use on Google that lead them to my blog. It’s interesting, and it lets me know which tags are successful. My blog, however, is unusual. The most commonly searched (successful) term is “nalgene lifetime warranty,” which takes them to a blog about my quest to obtain a … Continue reading This is not a real post
