“If it isn’t on Google, it doesn’t exist.”–Jimmy Wales
The last thing you want to do is throw down a challenge to this blogger. Ever. But that’s exactly what Elke Stangl did when she created search term poetry on her blog, Theory and Practice of Trying to Combine Just Anything. First of all, Elke has a resume that reads like a character from The Big Bang Theory. She describes her self as a physicist turned IT security consultant turned renewable energy engineer–all this plus a stint with Microsoft. But that aside, her big mistake was suggesting that I try my hand at search term poetry. I will not be outdone. Be careful what you wish for Elke, cause here comes Search Term Haiku. The rules are simple, but the creation is anything but easy.
- Every word must come from search terms actually used to find this blog, per my WordPress stats page
- The poems must follow the accepted Anglicized format of the traditional Japanese art form: three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.
- Each line must constitute an actual individual search term phrase, verbatim. The only change allowed is punctuation.
You asked for it, Elke. So here they are. (Note: I may have to bestow a BLAHS on Elke for inspiring this idea. But not the next one, as that has already been determined and will be posted soon.)
