Sat down for a little keyword research and came out of the cave of boredom with a new curiosity. This session’s curious thing was a word I haven’t heard: trypophobia. In this short blog, trypophobia is defined. Finally!
We utilized a very quick research approach involving google, a raspberry lime sparkling water from Trader Joes and a quick copy edit with hemingway app before trying all of Yoast’s built-in seo analysis prompts for my blog, which is hosted by Showit using a Tonic Site Shop template.
Woah. Is this affiliate marketing?
Are you afraid of trying?
Did you know that there are 550,000 monthly searches for the word trypophobia?
What even is that? You might ask.
I was hoping trypophobia was a fear of trying so I could write a blog about it, but— its not.
Holes on Holes on Holes.
Ya know that feeling you get …
from Spencer’s Gifts in the mall in the 2000s
when you’re flipping through the posters &&
You look too long at that psychedelic swirly vortex black light poster
& start to feel impending doom, so you flip the page to the next poster?
It’s called Trypophobia.
Pretty much everyone that has trypophobia also shows signs of OCD, according to one of the “featured snippets” in my quick google search for trypophobia.
Okay, so I think I do get this feeling of being afraid of holes — trypophobia when I stare into a wasp nest. But I think it’s different. There are actual miniature monsters in a wasp nest.
Holes + Tiny Monsters = scared.
But not a lotus pod.
I do get a little whoozy …
(hey, Siri! How do you spell “whoozy?”)
… I get a little woozy looking at a polka-dotted outfit. I can’t handle polka dots. Not like … In my vicinity. Def not on my person. They can exist out there in the world somewhere … but not on my bod. me.
Researchers from Google’s Featured Snippet say that hole-like patterns have a type of visual energy than can cause an unpleasant reaction.
I’m into that.
That’s not really what I was going for.
But I like it.
I came to this corner of the internet to learn a bit about how to start ranking on SEO for the word “Try”. Which seems daunting, but I’ll be back to tackle it again. I’ll keep on keeping on. Try, try again. All that jazz.
In this blog, we’re going to chat a lot about trying.
It’s the energy I’m bringing into 2023. Or whatever. Big T Energy. Try Girl Spring. Try or Die.
