Google Me This...




Another blog I really enjoy has this as a regular feature and it's often hilarious... So I'm going to give it a try here at americangirlsinmoscow.

So how did recent readers stumble upon my blog? Well...
  • Someone is evidently looking for "cat diapers" and well, we all know that I write about that fascinating topic quite frequently!
  • Barbeque equipment in the "off" season—or inappropriate content? You'll find neither here. The searcher who typed in "mosco grils" will only get this from me: the advice to "Work on your spelling, dude!"
  • "Eiffel Tower crafts." Yes, I did post both about the Eiffel Tower playhouse I made the girls from cardboard and the paper sculpture that Katya made—but alas, that's it...
  • "Childfree." This blog—and this family—are anything BUT!

It seems to be an American invasion on blogs and on Russia whats going on?

How do you do this? I got a wonderful letter today from a young Russian woman who was studying in the US for several years, and somehow stumbled on my blog. She resonated most with some post I wrote about "missing Russia" - I didn't ask her how she got to me. I think I will!

Anonymous: Huh? An American invasion of blogs? Um, whatever! Anyone can have a blog! Everyone is welcome to read--or not read--my own take on life here...

Annie: Try statcounter.com. It's free, easy, and really interesting!!!! If you need help installing it, just email and I could do it for you.

I think I did it! Thanks!

That is so funny!
I like the grill one, personally.
Ones I had a slide in my presentation which had 2 columns and the words "stuff" and "staff" appeared in both columns. They were suppose to mean the same thing, but...

I'm an American...not invading blogs though. In October I trailed my spouse as he went to Moscow for business. We were just there a week, but I enjoyed it. I somehow stumbled on your blog after getting home and enjoy reading about your experiences.

Susan (Anonymous): Please accept my apologies for being so snarky earlier... I have recently received quite a few anonymous comments that were intentionally derogatory and I wrongly jumped down your throat! I'm sorry! But, yeah, you're right... There are a lot of American bloggers out there now! Four years ago there were hardly any of us here in Russia...

Hi - A few weeks ago I emailed you to tell you how much I enjoy your blog! My two precious daughters were adopted from Russia (Ryazan and Kaliningrad) and are close to your daughters ago. I love to read about your adventures, Russia has a very special place in my heart! I don't recall how I found your blog but it is now bookmarked! Thanks for sharing! Deborah

There may be lots of yankees here but there are also lots of other nationalities!! Leave them alone! They spend their green back dollars and help Russia!!

I found your blog one day as I was searching for a recipe. I can't even remember what it was now, but your blog popped up with whatever recipe it was I needed. The search had nothing to do with Moscow, but I thought it was amazing that I had found your blog since we are also expats living in Moscow. Now from time to time I read your blog just because I am fascinated to read about other peoples experiences here in Moscow. :)

To the fresh Anonymous,

Americans work all over the world as expats as their jobs take them there. I wish there were 4 less Americans in your country.

The mother of those 4 Americans

You people get every where yet many of you can not even put a pin on a map and say what country it is. Do you know anything about Russian History, and European history? Corruption on Russian has always been and will always be!! Can we Russians visit your country? NO way hozay unless we jump through hoops !!

The last Anonymous: Most of the readers of this blog actually love the country of Russia, or the writer of the blog. The majority of us can also point out Russia, and many other countries on a map. As for knowing European and Russian history, your right, not many Americans do, because the history porion of our educational system focuses on the United States There are however options to study other countries.

I really enjoy reading about your adventures in Russia. I myself was born in Ukraine and moved to the U.S. when I was three, so I'm pretty Americanized but I visit my grandparents and relatives every 2 years as a family vacation and I've recently made a vkontakte.ru (russian version of facebook) to connect with my friends and cousins and this sparked my interest in Ukrainian and Russian culture. I stumbled upon your website when i googled ukrainain first day of school celebration (since i saw pictures of my friends dressed in traditional outfits on my vkontakte page i became really curious on how this all started and later my mom told me that she wore those too,especially those big,frilly bows) and thats how I found your blog!


P.S. I loved the Russian superstitions, especially the one about sitting on cold surfaces..my mom so believes that one haha :)
