I noticed just now when I checked my blog stats (instead of going to bed like a good boy) that someone had found my blog by going to http://uk.ask.com and searching blogs for the phrase (without quotes) “what is it called when you fight with a thin sword”.
I popped it in myself and, voilà!, there at the top of the list was my blog entry on “My struggle with the word ‘pacifist’.” Really, you have to love those long search strings! You can try it yourself, but (1) you have to search blogs not the web in general, (2) rankings often change as posts grow old and cold and (theoretically) less relevant so it may not be there anymore, and (3) I take no credit or blame for anything else you come across in that search!
On one hand, it was fun to see someone assumably in the UK–though not necessarily so–click to my blog as an accidental find (which happens on occasion), and I hope that he or she found the post to be beneficial. (Actually, all this international stuff reminds me: the blog stats page frequently indicates to me that someone out there is translating this blog into Japanese. I’d love to know who you are!)
On the other hand, the poor fellow or señorita certainly did not get an answer to his or her question in that post. Can anyone out there help our UK Ask.com searcher out: What is it called when you fight with a thin sword?
