Why I get a kajillion hits a day from google image search

I have a photo on my blog that shows up in the top 10 google image searches for "lowrider." I don't know if someone hotlinked to me and now it says custom cruisers, or if I hotlinked it or what, but I get hundreds of people a day coming to my blog because of this image. Sometimes they look around, other times, they're just there to see my lowrider. I'm not bothered by it, but they don't ever leave a comment. Not once. It's like a bunch of voyeurs looking into my bedroom window while they walk by, and there I am in my underwear, dancin' in front of a mirror to Bruce Springsteen. Oh wait. That really did happen, but it was my mom who saw me and I wasn't in my underwear. Yes, I was practicing the white man running technique, probably to Dancin' in the Dark and I was 16. Don't hold it against me, okay? I was getting ready for the Sadie Hawkins dance to which I'd wear my red vans with the red and white checkered laces. Wait. I got off topic.

Back to lowrider. Here's a new choice pic. A lowrider bicycle. Now don't tell me this doesn't kick ass. Odale!

Heeeelarious post!

And that's a great pic. Is that the little town of Bethlehem on the bike's skirt? I've never seen anything like it.

Where did you see this thing?

That's strange. I found your blog by searching for "canine obsession."

Oh sister. I have word search issues myself.

For me it's a search for "camel toes". Me... YES, ME! You know I don't walk on that side of the street, but ever since adding a post about Charlie's Angel's shiny camel toes, I get the lurkers.

I still get the hits I used to, but people don't comment like they used to. I guess my 15 minutes are up. :)

Okay...I found you through Purple Twinkie and since I live in PDX and NoPo is my favorite neighborhood, I thought I'd stop by. Then I saw your pic from the Mississippi Street Faire...I was there...didn't see you...of course I didn't know you...then.

Love your blog...will swing by again.

I got caught doing the "Safety Dance"
