The Mystery of Year's Happy Ending

The Founding Bettys do not get caught up much in blog monitoring. We don't often check our stats and we're not obsessive about how many hits we get in a day. But we couldn't help but notice a brain-teasing trend. Lots and lots and lots of visitors (not Bettys in the strictest sense, just passers-by) first visit through the portal of Betty Debbie's review of Year's Happy Ending.

As it was our very first review, here at The Uncrushable Jersey Dress, it clearly shows signs of age. The Founding Bettys had not hit our bloggy stride yet, and it shows. As a post it is quite short, has few pictures...The locations that hit it are seemingly random and we've combed over it looking for interesting key words...

So, why does it keep coming up in people's searches? Surely a head-scratcher for the ages.

Maybe the World Cup is the culprit.


  1. Dear Bettys, I just re-read for the umpteenth time A Year's Happy Ending and I would love to hear you comments on the baby (Dee) in this story. She is a few months old and all our heroine has to do is to top and bottom her and put her back in her crib (or moses basket). I believe you both have children - was that your experience with an infant? Mine kept me awake for hours and didn't spend a lot of time in the crib other than sleeping. Toward the end of the book, Dee begins to teeth and finally demands attention - I can't blame her - she was just too good to be true.

  2. The Founding Bettys (Betty Keira and Betty Debbie)have a ton of experience with babies - which is why we spotted the impossiblility of Baby Dee right off. Only a brand-new baby sleeps as much as this little coma patient - and Dee was NOT a newborn.(Take a gander at our review and discussion thread - both dated 12/31/2009).

  3. We all love happy endings, maybe that is what people are searching for when they google.
    And yes, baby Dee is unrealistic, but then, we all employ a "willing suspension of disbelief" anyway, so we'll just use it here!
