What makes a blog isn't what I post it is what you post. Sometimes what you post will have an impact for long after you make your comments. I have a search feature on my blog. It really doesn't tell me much. Less than have the time it will tell me the city and state the commenter is from but that is often useless as the city and state will be that of the Internet company and not the commenter. But the one feature I like is the feature that tells me what search words brought someone to the blog. Here are some search words that were used to find my blog yesterday:
"The Dahn Report"
"article on cancer as the most feared disease."
"2012 report of relationship to abuser in elder abuse"
"looking to help someone who is loosingn her sight /"
"elderly going blind"

It was kind of like the Brits saying we know who we are, we are going to celebrate who we are, so live with it. Before the opening ceremonies there was a column in the USA Today by one of my favorite authors, Craig Wilson, about the Olympic. I can tell you this, if shopping were an Olympic sport I would come home with at least a bronze medal for the best shopper. Do you win the best shopper or the worst shopper?
