Driveway.

One of the most common Google searches that lands people on my blog is "farm driveway" or "country driveway."  It is pipped at the post by "verandah" and "apricot chicken"!  The searches people do always make me laugh.

Given that there seems to be so many people eager to look at driveways, I thought I would show you a few photos of ours.  I took these a couple of weeks ago on a walk with The Farmchildren.

Looking Down The Driveway

And just to mix things up a bit I went for a retro look with Hipstamatic.

More Driveway

So - here's hoping that keeps the driveway fanatics happy.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Quick question though - why are people obsessed with driveways? Ideas anyone??

How do you know what people type in to find your blog? How do you find that out?

I originally found your blog by searching for "dining on apricot chicken on the verandah while gazing at the driveway". That's how I found your blog.

MMMC - If you go to stats on the new blogger dashboard and then look at traffic sources. Scroll down and you will see search key words. Prepare to be surprised!

If I was much cleverer I am sure google analytics would also do it but that's a bit hard for an apricot chicken, driveway blogger like myself....

It's lovely to see a bit of country
Australia while we are travelling overseas.
Driveways....perhaps we are interested in them because it leads to the home, the excitement of discovering what lies beyond.

The first drive way picture is pure Australiana - a perfect post card. I must say I do love the red dirt of the outback.

PS The lemon slice was delish!

People find my blog by googling "brother and sister experiment". I am sure they are disappointed by what they find!

Love a good winding driveway, it's like there's a nice surprise around the corner!

That is absolutely priceless! Just checked my stats... lots of pirate stuff and dulux searches. Very boring. I love MMMC's search, much more interesting! Would love to hear the story behind that! x

Well I am going to put some of my driveway pictures in a post if it will increase traffic.

My look at the stats in the past reveals searches for whips?? Having 2 Australian champs in the family they feature quite prominently. But I am sure the searchers are looking for other uses for whips!

Our driveway is a little chopped up at the moment with the rain we have just had, it will be nice when it looks like yours again, my car looks like its been in the mud races. LOL

I have to admit, I don't ever remember doing a search about driveways but I have a country road very much like the one in your first picture as the wallpaper on my phone but anyway, I think they represent 2 things in life - getting away from something and coming home and the pull between them both, but I could be over thinking things:)

You know, I actually am a bit of a driveway fanatic. Who knew!? Just imagining driving home along your driveway gives me the 'country envy' that you know I have so bad!!! x

Normally I do not learn post on blogs, nonetheless I would like to say that this write-up extremely pressured me to check out and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, quite great post.
