Note to Self: Better Name for Next Blog

So I'm using Google Analytics to track traffic to my blog. Not that I'm terribly concerned about it, but I already had an Analytics account for traffic monitoring at work, so I thought, “What the heck, might as well make a separate profile for my blog, just because I can.” The code for it is actually located just above the “Dashboard” link on my sidebar.

Anyway, it wasn't long before I noticed something strange. The reports from Google Analytics include a listing of search terms that people have used to reach your site. I was mildly disturbed to discover that several people arrived here via search terms that used the last word in my blog's name with less-than-innocent intent. (I imagine they were probably somewhat disappointed.) There hasn't been anything that made me want to claw my eyes out yet, but I'm thinking that witty title may not have been so great after all.
