How Did You Get Here?

I told myself I wasn't going to post one of these but now I see how hard it is to resist. I check my stats on here almost daily to see where everyone comes from and how they got here so I know how to better promote this blog. Yes, like everyone else in the world I too crave attention. So however you found me, I'm glad you're here. You make my blog worth writing, even if we don't always agree!

Though hubby swore "White Bhabi" sounds like a porn name I rarely ever get anyone coming to this blog through naughty search terms. I'm glad he was wrong lol, though he still doesn't like this name. Oh well, I'm just not that, I like this name. It's catchy....and yes, the evil me sometimes throws out some titles that sound a little risque just to get the views lol. It's fun. >:D

I find it fascinating I have regular viewers from the Netherlands, Argentina and the Phillipines! Now I know, I'm no expert but these are not typical communities you hear of where Indians run off to nor when inter-cultural relationships come up. At least not in the circle of 250 couples I follow regularly on FaceBook. Now here's how all these ppl get here, apparently, if they haven't followed a link from someone elses blog.

"bhabi" - this one is not really a surprise, but I wonder what they think when white bhabi pops up in their search terms lol. I wonder if it throws them for a loop. If they are Indian they may be a little intrigued by the 'white' because it's in English. I like my life all mixed up and couldn't put up 'citta' because it was too easy. ;) Interestingly though, this search term gets me more visitors than "white bhabi" does.

"flashing bhabi" - LMFAO! Last time I checked I don't blink or wear button up shirts and I haven't posted anything similar to either. Thankfully this search term only led to my blog 1 time. Of course, I had to bring it up after what hubby said about my name hahahaha.

"is foold gold valuable" - no...not after you've fooled it. It's self worth goes down the tubes. Bleh..leave that rock alone.

"im starving myself to save money" - I'm a little scared for this person. Hopefully they read my blog and the comments you guys gave. If nothing else they will get ideas for inexpensive foods so they don't starve.

"vabi soda" - I don't even know what that is????

"girls who dont make roti" - Now this is funny! I hope that person realized about half the world doesn't make them. Then there are the countless Mexicans and South Americans who call them tortillas....I'm sure this searcher was on the net all day considering numbers that high! Hopefully it at least directed them to this post.

"different culture girls in america and india" and "difference between american and indian culture" and "american and indian culture difference"- I like these three. I do talk a lot here about how the two cultures are different and also how they are alike. I firmly believe the fastest way to end racism and hate is to help others understand that our differences are minor and underneath all that ppl are the same all over the world. Understanding is the key to ending fear and stupidity after all.

"are indian men exotic" -  I'm gonna answer this one for you hun! YYYEEEEESSSSSSS!!!! It's like that Exotic song by Jennifer Stuler. Let me quote for you:
"I can be exotic, Erotic, I can act a bit psychotic. I can be sweet, if that's what you please." Rawr! Unfortunately though there are (like every other culture) a few jerks out there who ruin it for everyone.

"alone in my room on a saturday night" - enjoy it while you can!! Oh how I wish I could trade places with you for a week or two. 

Well, that's it. The rest of my search terms are ppl looking for me by my names or the site name. I'm glad I'm being found for all the right reasons.

So tell me, what are you looking for when you come to my blog? Is there anything you would like for me to post about specifically? You can use the contact form to email me or leave me a comment and I just may post it in your honor.

  1. Maybe so. I've never moved between states here but I imagine it would still bring on some level of culture shock moving from a large city to an area like Manali or vice-versa. That would happen in just about any country. Moving is never easy, even when there is no culture shock you still have to adjust to all new people and all new surroundings.

  2. Hmmm...well since all the languages here are phonetic, spelling is not such an issue. :)

  3. actually moving from one indian state to another should in theory feel like an "intercultural" thing. however it does not, unless it involves moving from a non-hindi speaker majority to a hindi-speaker majority region. it is more pronounced if the migration is  from south india to non-south india.

    hindi speakers being what they are, feel at home everywhere in india ...

  8. Route map - via "whiteindianhousewife" thanks to some links she'd posted. I had to stop by and leave a comment against this post as I always find these stats entertaining. I'd written something along these lines a while ago. Just today, somebody landed on my space while looking for "astrian field peas porn" !?! Really now! :D

  10. Unfortunately for me, I didn't think of the possible consequences of my blog name much! You can probably guess that I get a lot of hits (and emails) from Indian guys interested in fun times with housewives. Blah.

  12. I'm sure you did feel out of place moving from one state in India to another. Every state is so different here, they are like their own separate countries. I read blogs of Indians who moved away and you're right, those are very insightful. I read one once about a girl who moved from India to New York and I just related to her so well, even though her experience was completely opposite. I just love it. It helps me understand my own culture (which is something I never thought of before) as well as the Indian culture. Thanks for reading my blog!

  13. Yep I'm one of the ones who found you while searching for "bhabi", the word was in a book I was reading and I didn't know what it meant so I googled it. :-)  Glad I found your blog, always very interesting.  I hope to visit India one day but until then I love your descriptions and discussions on living there.  Thank you for taking the time to write for the rest of us. :-)

  14. I am one of the readers from Netherlands. Indian, not in an intercultural relationship, unless you consider being from two different states of India intercultural (which when you think about it, is). I read a few intercultural blogs as I have moved a few countries and am curious about how others see my country. It helps me observe my own land from a different point of view, and also helps me understand my own difficulties in other lands.

  15. I'm glad you found it. I know not everyone will agree with my views because they are not in my circumstances. It is fascinating though to see different peoples thoughts and ideas and how they view India. I also read many blogs by Indians who moved abroad and how they view their new countries. It's very interesting stuff.

  16. hi there, have gotten here while searching for intercultural related blogs. thank you so much for allowing me to read all these wonderful posts which does make my day better, change my point of views about intercultural relationships *currently struggling in one* and about India *somehow a little here and there*

  17. :) I'm the one from Argentina -- Indian, moved here about a year ago. I'm not in an intercultural relationship and never was. I think I found your blog through one of the other intercultural ones and it ended up on my feed reader. I'm interested in such blogs just to see India from another point of view, though it's not always one I agree with.

  18. Hi White Babi, Kalo from the Netherlands. I found your blog via whiteindianhousewife.com. Been interested in intercultural relationships since I was in one - which unfortunately didn't last. Happy to hear that yours works out well. Love your posts.
