A journey through my blog referrers

So, occassionally I like to amuse myself by taking a look at the things you crazy kids type into Google to find this here blawg. Here are some of this week’s, which provide a handy insight into the wrath behind my last post, about Facebook and ginger-bashing. And, you know, a handy insight into how totally freaky some people are…

forever amber blog
Typing www.foreveramber.co.uk will get you here quicker, but hi, hello,
how are you, loyal readers who are Googling JUST FOR ME. Am flattered.

i have red hair, will my baby?
Oh, here we go. I knew it was too good to be true. You had to get started with the whole “red haired baby” thing, didn’t you? Yes, your baby will have red hair. Try not to breed.

how to avoid a ginger haired child
Um, cross the street, maybe? Or no, wait: just don’t go out AT ALL. That way you don’t have to see the ginger children and they don’t have to see you, either. Everyone’s a winner, baby. Also: you’re an idiot – have a nice day, now!

i see stupid people
Yeah, tell me about it, I see them too. In fact, one of them typed the search term right above yours, as a matter of fact…

Can we say “stalker”?

how would a red head with freckles avoid having children with freckles?
Freckles are caused by the sun. You would avoid having a child with them by protecting its skin from the sun. You would avoid having a STUPID child, on the other hand, by protecting it from YOU.

should ginger haired people dye there hair brown or blonde
I dunno: should stupid people maybe learn how to spell before hitting up Google, hmmm?

look back in amber
Hey, lookit what you did there! You made a clever pun! I’m TOTALLY going to use that as a post title one day – just so’s you know. Also: I make the jokes around here, ‘kay?

waistband stretcher
Who knew the post about the waistband stretcher would still be getting hits, almost a year to the day since I wrote it?

i hate my mirrored wardrobe sliding doors
Oh God, me too! Man, am I glad Terry broke those bad boys, giving us a cast-iron excuse to get new ones.

amber is a spoiled brat .com
Now hold on one cotton-pickin’ minute there: Amber is a spoiled what now? What’re you calling me? You don’t want to make me angry, you know – we redheads have some MEAN tempers…

can’t take my eyes off you mcnaught
Oh, you! Stop it, I’m blushing :)

there was a big wad of wax in my ear is that normal?
Doctor Amber, she say… No. Not normal. Now stop looking it up on the Internet and go see your doctor.

why do they call redheads ginger?
Because they are stupid. Next!

what do people do on honeymoon
Seriously, dude, if you have to ask, I don’t think I can help you…

    Hahaha ginger phobic. People search for the weirdest things!

  • alyndabear says:

    You have some crazy searches as well! I call mine Google-age, and it never fails to amuse me. Look at all your hair-coloured searches.. wow! People need to get out more, apparently.

    Giggling at the stupid people part! I see an awful lot of them around me too..

    Hi Amber,

    As a fellow red haired person I know how hard it is when you’re a kid to take this “funy”comments. At one point I had a handful of my hair (which was waist length) ripped out my head at the roots by two girls in primary school. The patch grows in a different colour now.

    Now i’m older though, lots of people comment favourably and I’m proud to be a pasty red haired scot. ‘Mon the reds!

  • cady says:

    keyword searches crack me up. it seems like the oddest searches will end up at someone’s blog. hehe.

  • Kay says:

    My goodness, I had no idea there was so much animosity on the Internet towards redheads! This is frightening. My hair is a strange shade of brown/blonde, but it has natural red highlights. I may have to lock myself in my house and never venture outdoors ever again.

    I see stupid people, indeed!

  • Amber says:

    Oh, people love to hate us redheads, alright! Seriously, I get dozens of searches like that every day: some of them are actually a lot more alarming because they’ll say things like “My new baby has red hair – can I dye it?” I mean, seriously, can you even IMAGINE trying to dye a baby’s hair? Poor kids.

    Kate – yay for another Scottish redhead! ‘Mon indeed :)

  • Hiya

    I’ve only just found your blog and going on the basis of this posting about the strange ways people discover you I thought I’d let you know how I found you.

    I’m going on holiday with my brother to Orlando in about 14 days. He needs a new suitcase and I thought I could give him mine if I could just find a cow patterned suitcase. I saw one about 11 months ago but wasn’t going on holiday in the near future and they are a pain to store. Anyway I typed this into Google and one of the results was yourself for a mention you made of one in an earlier post.

    The internet always surprises eh? Right I’m rambling. I’ve added you to my favourites and hope to drop back soon for a better look round.

    No one should have to stand up for themselves due to the color of their hair. Good grief, I have made a well above average income in Silicon Valley with no issues surrounding the color of my hair; which is red. Perhaps, the individuals who feel compelled to ridicule others due to their hair color should open up a book and learn that this is the human race. I feel honored to stand out as a pretty redhead and will laugh all the way to the bank. Social ignorance is a sad thing.

      "Perhaps, the individuals who feel compelled to ridicule others due to their hair color should open up a book and learn that this is the human race. "

      Perhaps the individuals who feel compelled to ridicule others due to their bad teeth, as you did in your comment on one of my other posts, should do the same? I share your incredulity about the way redheads are treated, but to be honest, your comments criticising everyone from the UK (as if we're all exactly the same, with no redeeming qualities), and boasting about the superiority of Americans doesn't make you sound much less ignorant. I'm proud to be a redhead too, but I'm not going to bash an entire nation and make personal remarks about teeth, etc, just to make a point.
