Food For bloggers....

There are some words that bloggers just love and can’t have enough of them… One indefatigable blogger actually went and counted each of these words’ appearances in the blog titles and so I thought to carry out somehow of a less mammoth job and went to check how many times these words appeared in Google (in the beginning common folk and kings from distant lands travelled to Delphi to have their questions answered by the Greek god Apollo. Today, however, life is much easier: there is Google). My Googling revealed that, indeed, some specific words are more frequently encountered not only in blogosphear but also in common search:

Search 16,020,000,000
Life 3,960,000,000
Random 872,000,000
Bug 697,000,000
Thoughts 478,000,000
Soul 371,000,000
Mad 260,000,000
Reflection 145,000,000
Geek 143,000,000
Punk 137,000,000
Rant 61,000,000
Nerd 34,000,000
Rambling 20,400,000
Ramble 10,600,000
Musing 8,050,000
Ponk 352,000

Web definitions:

Geek: A carnival performer whose show consists of bizarre acts, such as biting the head off a live chicken, or A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept. And although I prefer the former, I think that in this context the latter is more suited...

Nerd: A computer expert by aptitude and not mere training. Usually male, under the age of 35 and socially inept; a person whose tremendous skill with operating or designing computer hardware or software is exceeded only by his passionate love of the technology

Rant: To speak or write in an angry or violent manner; rave. To utter or express with violence or extravagance: a dictator who ranted his vitriol onto a captive audience.

Rambling: Often or habitually roaming; wandering, tending to depart from the main point or cover a wide range of subjects.

Ponk (PonkZ in the plural): People of no kolour… or better those who are so pale that when they walk in the street the multitude approaches them to ask for an autograph, as they, usually, are mistaken for one of the members of the Adams family.

Punk: Punk is a set of social and political beliefs, morals and standards that indicate an absolute rejection of conformity.

Ps. did you know that the life of a mad rambling punk, which also has a reflection on the quickly-modernizing pro-ponkz, reminds us of the musing geek who went for a ramble and heard the rant of a nerd that had got the Bug through a random search and lost his soul thanks to his foolish thoughts?
