Answering My Search Terms

Search terms are a weird and wacky thing. On one hand, my blog would be a lot smaller without them. A lot of people come to my blog through searches for things like “differences between Les Mis book and Movie” (I did a post on that here)  or “why do people hate Jane Austen?” (I did a post on that too) etc, etc. And for that I’m truly grateful.

However, search terms can be very, very strange. So today, I’m going to be going through my search terms, having a laugh and seeing if I can answer some of the questions asked therein.

(P.S. Pretty sure I stole this idea from Paper Fury at some point. Also, all spelling and grammar will be per original search, because that makes it funnier)

What did the movie anastasia get accurate?

Not a lot, honestly. Except that there was a grand duchess called Anastasia Romanova. Other than that, the rest of it is pretty much fantasy, sadly.

why do people like jane austen?

I think its got something to do with the romance or something? I don’t know, people, I don’t know.

most accurate les miserable movie?

I would say the most accurate and also enjoyable version is the 2019 BBC Les Miserables tv series.

jane austen books boring

Yeah…I agree. But I know that a lot of other people don’t, so that’s fine.

things to do in your gap year

I’ve got a whole post on it! 

jane Austin rant

I’ve no idea why this search term would yield any results… *whistles innocently*

les mis spin off books

There’s only two that I know of, though I could be misinformed, Cosette by Laura Kalpakian and A Little in Love by Susan Fletcher. Let me know if you know of any more though!

 What is a prolonged in a Christian fiction

You have about as much idea as me, my friend.

why does the movie anastasia play that she never died

Because if Anastasia was dead, there wouldn’t be a movie and a lot of small children (and honestly big ones like me too) would be sad.

Anastasia broadway based on truth

It is based on truth, though only a very small kernel of it.

phantom why is the ending differrent in the play than the movie

I don’t think it is, is it? Please someone correct me if I’m wrong.

fascinated with history

The reason this yields a search result is because “fascinated with history” is actually my middle name.

can Christian fiction be found in secular bookshelves

If you put them there, yes. However, if you mean “secular bookstores” the answer is, it depends. Some secular bookstores have Christian books, some don’t. It just depends.

difference between opera and novel

Well, opera is a sung medium, where people take turns to belt out their feelings, usually in Latin, Italian or German. Novels are different, being black and white words printed on a page. However, both are similar in the fact that they must have a beginning, middle and an end and both can be very entertaining.

Christian fiction bad written

Some of it is, yes. But there’s some good stuff out there! Don’t lose hope.

was everyone obsessed with history

No, sadly not. But I am, so you can chat to me, friend.

les miserables volume 5 chapter 6 difference from novel and movie

This is strangely specific and I’m not sure I can help you. I don’t know what happens in volume 5 chapter 6.

les miserables 2000 defernce  between freach and englesh versons

I can’t read French unfortunately, so I don’t know what the differences are.

problematic Christian romance

Yes, there’s a lot of these. My least favourite trope is the “girl loves God, so God gives girl a handsome young guy as a reward”. Maybe I should do a whole post on this trope someday.

eponine book version

Do you mean,  A Little in Love mentioned above?

why am i obsessed with history

Because you have taste, my friend. And you’re in good company with most of the readers of this blog.

broadway musicals no one talks about

There’s a lot! For starters, Bandstand, Come From Away, The Secret Garden, Anastasia…

phantom burns opera

Hmm…interesting.

giphy
How the Phantom would burn the opera house down

lamarque

From Wikipedia:

Jean Maximilien Lamarque (22 July 1770 – 1 June 1832) was a French commander during the Napoleonic Wars who later became a member of the French Parliament. Lamarque served with distinction in many of Napoleon’s campaigns. He was particularly noted for his capture of Capri from the British, and for his defeat of Royalist forces in the Vendée in 1815. The latter campaign received great praise from Napoleon, who said Lamarque had “performed wonders, and even surpassed my hopes”.

There you go, crash course in the history of General Lamarque.

liam neeson affairs

What?

What.

WHAT.

I have no idea what this is about. While Liam Neeson may have had affairs, I know nothing about them and I have no idea why my blog would be a hit for this :l

how many days do you have to pay state taxes from filing?

Truth be told, I have no idea, but I really want to know now. If you are experienced in this sort of thing, please let me know.

what has god been teaching me

I don’t know, that’s between you and God. But I can tell you that God has teaching me a lot about patience and living a life free of anxiety at the moment. Not an easy lesson and I really wish it hadn’t taken a global pandemic to do it, but here we are.

Jessica ginkel

Who the heck is this? And why did my blog come up in a search for her name?

(Apparently, Jessica Ginkel is a German actress)

Why one hates jane austen

This question sounds like Jane Austen herself wrote it.

downton abbey

I don’t think I’ve ever written about Downton Abbey here ever. I also don’t like it.

book lover pet peeves

I have a lot, observe a list:

-Books with gross love interests.

-Spelling errors in published novels

-No research conducted whatsoever

-When people overhype unworthy books and ignore others.

kira rausch 

I don’t know who or what this is and neither does Google.

chelsea r zoology

I wrote a post about the zoo one time, so I guess that’s what this search is related to.

i hate jane austen and the style of her writings

Strangely specific and eloquent.

Why are people trying to make jane austen black

What? Are they? Let me Google this.

Yep…only one dodgy looking paper is coming up. It references a bunch of times Austen’s heroes are described as brown or black. The evidence is shaky at best and I’m not sure anyone is trying to make Jane Austen black.

why les miserbles movie is worse then the boik

There’s a lot of reasons.

famous authors who hate jane austen

I am now among the ranks of Jane Austen hating famous authors.

In all seriousness though, I only know of a few authors that openly hated Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte being one of them.

To sum it all up, most of these searches were about Jane Austen, Les Miserables (or some spelling variant) or whether or not Anastasia was based on a true story. I definitely found some interesting ones in there though (pretty sure no one is trying to make Jane Austen black???). Do you guys have any interesting search terms? What’s the weirdest thing you’ve searched for? How many days do you have to pay state taxes?

  1. I really love the super specific ones, because I search bizarrely specific stuff ALL THE TIME XD

    You don’t like Jane Austen? I would have thought you would be a Jane Austen fan for some reason, but I guess not! I personally love Jane Austen’s sense of humor, her characterization, and the focus on women and female relationships her stories have, but I totally get why she wouldn’t be for everyone. The books just happen to click with me.

    Also, I would LOVE a post from you about love interests as rewards. I always love deep dives into tropes 🙂

  2. Haha, this is hilarious! I love how many of these are about hating Jane Austen. I neither hate nor love Jane Austen, though I did find her books (I read two for school) rather boring than not. I much prefer Dickens and the Bronte sisters.
    BANDSTAND. Why does no one talk about Bandstand? It’s wonderful. And we should all talk about it.
    “boik.” Hm. Interesting spelling choice. It’s kind of cute. But…it’s not “book.”
    What an entertaining post!

  3. Thanks Chelsea, this was really entertaining….and confusing. Especially the one that said /phantom burns opera/. How? I don’t think it’s possible to burn a genre. Anyway, very amusing.

  4. Yeah me too!
    No I’m not really. I read Pride and Prejudice and didn’t like it but I thought that was maybe just a fluke but I’ve read almost all of them now and the only one I enjoyed was Northanger Abbey. But I do enjoy her female characters and how relatable some of them are!
    Well, I’ll have to do that post when I’ve got some time to think it through!

  5. Yes, it’s obviously the thing I’ve become famous for. Yes Dickens and the Brontes’ for the win!
    Bandstand is astoundingly amazing. I will love it Forever.
    Definitely quite cute Boik sounds like a cute name for a dog.

  6. That’s hilarious.
    As for Les Mis spinoffs, I know Legend by Marie Lu was kinda based off Les Mis. Legend was pretty good, but I did have some problems with the rest of the series. (I did a mini-review of it on my blog here if you wanna hear all my opinions on it. XD https://growingintofriends.com/2020/04/28/mini-book-reviews/) Other than that, I haven’t heard of any spin offs. I’ve never read the book (though I need to sooner or later) but I’m *just a little* obsessed with the soundtrack from the musical. (Read, I go around singing it 24/7)

  7. This was such a fun post to read! It really is funny to see some of the strange searches that people make! I’m not the hugest Austen fan, but I definitely didn’t expect so many people to be making searches about her! I’m glad that that post of yours is getting recognition, though, because it was so memorable!

  8. “defernce between freach and englesh versons” – it’s okay you don’t read French, Chelsea, I’m pretty sure this person doesn’t read English…

    I did not know that Charlotte Bronte hated Jane Austen. Now I’m going to have to look that up – sounds like there could be some very interesting stories there! (That said, I do like Pride and Prejudice, and Northanger Abbey’s on my TBR, and I also really liked Jane Eyre [that’s… the only Bronte I’ve read, though. do you have recs??])

  9. “A lot of small children (and honestly big ones like me too) would be sad.” If that’ snot a mood, I don’t know what is.

    It’s funny how accurate the weird search terms are in showing just exactly what your blog’s aesthetic is. Maybe you need to do some sort of mashup post sometime that talks all about Jane Austen, Anastasia, and Les Mis in order to make all the Googlers happy.

  10. It definitely looks like it, doesn’t it!
    Yeah, Bronte was pretty dead against Austen. I believe some prominent male authors of the time saw Brontes’ (all of them) works as being too masculine and they often told Bronte to read Austen in order to see how a woman should write. Which would honestly make me mad too 😀
    Jane Eyre’s pretty good! The only other one I’ve read is Agnes Grey, which i think is by Anne? The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is supposed to be really good too but I haven’t managed to get a hard copy of that yet.

  11. Actually, i had heard that, but forgotten it! I haven’t read Legend though, so it didn’t immediately spring to mind. I think there’s a new sci-fi book that came out recently which is also based on Les Mis.
    That’s pretty much me too. I’ve been obsessed for years.

  12. Yeah, it seems a lot of people hate her! I feel kind of sorry for her, but there’s so many people that love that I think she’ll be fine.
    It definitely was a memorable post.
