My Greatest Blog Post of All Time

Some days I sit down at my computer to write a new blog post, and I ask myself, “What do my readers need to hear from me today?”  I wonder if it’s possible to share anything new that hasn’t been shared many times over on the internet.

Those thoughts of “what’s the use?” or “why not give it up?” bubble to the surface.  Then I remember  that one post that I shared here that has been read hundreds of times, and I realize that my blog is not in vain.  I am helping people.  I am making a difference.

That one blog post is served up to readers who land here after searching the internet for relief from pants that are too tight.  It happens.

By logging in to my blog’s dashboard, I can see which blog posts are read most often and which words and phrases people use to search for helpful information.  (Don’t worry, I can’t tell who is doing the searching.) Here’s a small sampling of some of those phrases that are typed into search engines:

“my pants are too tight”
“how to make my waistband bigger around the waist”
“breeches too tight”
“pants are too tight when sitting”

Who knew that my claim to fame would be sharing an idea for making your jeans just a little looser in the waist?

So maybe this most-viewed-blog-post-of-all-time here at Elaine Searer’s blog doesn’t outline steps for world peace or a balanced national budget, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important.  Tight pants are a problem, (ask me how I know this) and I’m proud to be able to ease the pain of some who have been suffering with this malady.

If you somehow missed this post, A Trick for Too Tight Pants, you can read it now.   You’re going to want to sign up for email updates from this website.  I have a feeling my next great idea is almost ready to break loose.

  1. I can see why this was your most popular blog-how did I make it through 51 years without knowing this trick?!!? I can’t wait to give this a try….

    1. Teresa, who do you think you’re kidding about needing to give this trick a try? LOL

  2. Hi Elaine!
    You may be wondering who I am. My maiden name was Peachey. I’ll never forget the good times we had with the Houtz kids. I love your posts. Keep it up Grandma, it keeps you young!

    1. Joanna, it’s so great to hear from you! I think about you and your family a lot. My childhood was greatly enriched by our friendship. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

      1. Joanna, I was just curious to know how you found my blog.

  3. Hi Elaine, please don’t give up on us! You have so much to offer. Spiritual guidance, helpful hints, and stories from your everyday life. ..what more could we want! I was wondering, do you take the advice from Red Cross and others and do any kind of preparation for natural disasters, etc? That could be an interesting topic to discuss.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Chris. Thanks, too, for that great idea for a blog post.
