blog traffic

People all over the world are looking for help with their llamas. When I named this blog Llama Momma, I had no idea what I was doing. Seriously. I started the blog on a fluke, and found I really enjoyed blogging. So here we are.

Unfortunately, my friends over at google think this is a blog for cute, spitting animals.

The number one google search of late? Llama crafts.

Honestly, every day I have several people looking for llama crafts. And now it will happen even more because I’m saying it over and over again. Llama crafts, llama crafts, llama crafts. If anyone knows of any, pass them on in the comments or by email and I’ll post it as a public service announcement. Someone has to help these people with their crafts! And if the Llama Momma isn’t willing to step up, I ask you, who will?

People are also looking for information on the following:

my llama having a baby

sleep habits of llamas

emotional llama

llama + missions

laundry launching llama

That last one has me wondering.

Every once in awhile, someone finds this post after googling making formula on a plane, or should I take my baby on the plane? And I wish I had some way to get in touch with them. No, I think. Don’t do it unless you absolutely have to.

And my favorite? Just a few weeks ago someone asked: how do I make dinner with all of these kids my husband drives a truck. (Actually, that’s not a direct quote, but I don’t use profanity on my blog.)

And to you, overwhelmed mom, you simply do the best you can. Plan ahead and keep meals simple. Get the kids involved in the cooking if they’re old enough to help. And always keep a couple of frozen pizzas on hand. Go ahead. There is no judgement here.

Has anyone searched for making baby formula on a plane *for a llama?*

You never know what people are struggling with.

Bless the moms who are desperately looking for solutions--literally and figuratively. Your tone is reassuring and comforting; your advice, practical. Bring on the pizzas!

Ann -- no formula for llamas. Not yet anyway!

Suzie said...

I came here looking for llamas. Where are all the llamas? :)

AGH! New posts and bloglines did not inform me.

As for the llama crafts, I'm not going to be helpful on that one. I'm sure Martha Stewart can give you some ideas. :)

You know, frozen pizzas work well when you live by yourself, too! Everybody has a frozen pizza day now and then.

Sorry I haven't been by in a while. Hope you all are well!

Oh my gosh too funny!

Llama Momma said...

Suzie -- Sorry about that! ;-)

SP-- You know, the llama traffic just quadrupled from this post. Now I've got someone looking for TWIN llamas and Llama TRUCKS. Of course.

Charity -- It's good to hear your voice. Frozen pizza is a good thing for ANYONE'S freezer. You just never know. :-)

Kelsey -- Thanks for stopping by! And laughing. Laughing is always good...

Oh I got such a good laugh out of this post! I've been amazed at what traffic certain posts I've done has brought.

Here you go, sweetie. Now they will know where to turn:

Llama Craft @ Sprittibee's Blog

Heather said...

And here was our second attempt at llama crafting...

Who knew? And my blog's title has a "bee" in it. Maybe we should trade. Are you a honey farmer by any chance?

AMEN! That's it, Amen, that's all I hae to say!!

Sarah Mae said...

hahahahaha! Maybe you have a calling you never knew about! :)

Is that kind of like "crafty llamas"? I've always thought they were mysterious animals.

(Very amusing post, btw!)

Okay, I know I haven't been checking in for a while, but now I am totally confused. Llamas do crafts?? I thought all their free time was consumed by spitting at people. And HOW do they do crafts? Last time I checked, they have cloven hooves! What kind of crafts do you do with cloven hooves? Wait a that I think about it....knitting--much easier to hold the yarn. Or maybe cooking? Could used the cloven part for a quick spoon rest. Hm, I guess using a sewing machine would be a little awkward. Oh! Gardening! You could dig with the hooves and then hitch yourself up to your own wheelbarrow!
I've also wondered if you meant DOING crafts with ---uh, how shall I put it?---llama "parts?" As in posthumously. Well, I don't even want to go there... said...

I only wish my google searches were so family friendly.

Anyone looking for anything antique is sent my way. About once a week I get an email from someone asking about the value of their antique you-name-it. I'm like, Dude, have you even looked at the site? I'M the antique!
