anecdotes about anecdotes

My blog is called “Anecdotes” because of Hester Thrale Piozzi’s Anecdotes of the late Samuel Johnson, L.L.D. When I named it that, I never really thought about the traffic it might generate. But I get a continuous stream of hits from search strings about anecdotes. Around May and June, “anecdotes about graduation” is always a popular one — I guess it’s really hard to write a graduation speech without borrowing some stories? But I think my favorite of all time was: “anecdotes about me.”

I don’t think that person really understands how search engines work.
