Search Engine Poetry, Cryptically

After the response I got to my Search Engine Poetry challenge last year, I thought it would be fun to do it again this year. But, sadly, due to the reasons reported by Timethief over at

one cool site

Google has gone and torpedoed all that – Pfffft!
(Christine, can you please have a mother-to-son chat about this! 🙂 )

What to do? What to do?

A Blog Title Poetry Challenge, perhaps?

Hmmm, doesn’t quite have the same ring to it…

..but it could be fun, and who knows what blogging gems we might discover along the way.

So, here’s my BTP challenge:

  1. Write a poem from WordPress blog titles (use the Explore Topics Tags in the WordPress Reader to help you).
  2. Be sure to hyperlink to the blog titles in your poem.
  3. Post the poem on your blog and leave a comment on this post linking to it.
  4. Read and comment on at least one post on the blogs whose titles you’ve used.
  5. Have fun!

I’ll go first:

Ducks in a row,
Let’s go!

Weekly Photo Challenge: My Neighbourhood

I am hopeless at taking photos with my iPhone. I’m one of those Luddites who prefers to use my phone as only that, so make no apology for the quality of my entry to this week’s (actually, last week’s) photo challenge, which required us to do some phoneography.

bb-mn1I live in the ‘burbs, and a cacophony of cultivation culling machines pretty much characterizes my neighbourhood on a Saturday morning.

Weekly Writing Challenge: A Splash of Colour

the colours of my week

my laptop gave me

the black screen of death,

without it, no silver

to keep out of the red,

my face was white,

my language was blue,

the week took on a greyish hue,

but then three techies with hearts of gold

coloured me back from this online cold,

so things looks rosy, I’m back in the pink –

Geeks of the world, to you I drink!

When it comes to rules, I’m a bit like you, Jo, but I’ll join you for some pirate tea 😉
