I always look at my WordPress stats, since I find it fun to obsess over metrics. A few days ago, I got a hit off the search terms “women in sweatpants and socks.”
I don’t have any images of women in sweatpants and socks on my blog, do I? I’m not sure I’ve even mentioned sweatpants or socks…or wearing sweatpants and socks together…and I definitely wouldn’t allow myself to be photographed in such an ensemble and exposed to the intertubes. I wonder, is this a phrase that gets more traffic than one might expect? It’s impossible to think there’s a fetish out there that hasn’t been pistol whipped and unconsciously dragged out of the closet by Jaime Buffalino, Dan Savage, Nerve.com and (eek) Fleshbot.
I figure the only empirical test that will yield an answer is to keep repeating the phrase “women in sweatpants and socks” and see if I get any more clicks.
I’ll reveal the results in a week. I know you’ll all be holding your breath.
