So, about a year ago, I wrote this post about snow globes. If you haven’t read it, you should. I think it’s kind of funny. And let’s just say that in the divide of those who love snow globes and those who think they are a waste of space, I fall firmly into the second camp.
I actually thought everyone thought this. Apparently I was completely wrong. I have been writing this blog for two and a half years, and that was my most popular post of all time. I get at least 20 hits a day from people searching for snow globes. I kid you not. One day — in August, no less — I got over a hundred searches for snow globes in one day.
I am mystified, I tell you. I had thought the world was full of snow globe scoffers like me, but it seems that, no, it is actually full of people who are interested enough in snow globes to search for them on the internet. And I’m sorry, but even if you’re the biggest snow globe enthusiast in the universe, I can’t see how anything you’re going to find with that search is going to be very interesting. (Besides my wonderful blog, of course.)
And it’s always shocking to me when I find out that one my ideas isn’t in line with the culturally dominant opinion. I guess I thought I was the barometer of public opinion or something. Turns out I’m not. Go figure.
