If you are a regular follower of this blog, you've probably noticed things have been quiet here lately. I don't do this for a living, and things have been crazy busy at work the past few weeks, leaving me with little time and not enough gumption to do what needed to be done both here and there. I'm hoping things will be settling down a bit to give me more discretionary time...we'll see how it shakes out.
For those of you that are new to this blog, or have otherwise not been paying attention, I have a list of words, currently numbered at 136, and each week I go to an online random number generator to get...(Wait for it!)...a randomly generated number! I use this number to point me to the tag word that I'll use to search for images by Etsy POE Team members that will populate that week's feature. This week my randomly generated number pointed me to the word "Blue" which produced a list of 74 pages, and 2932 listings. It's a challenge to reduce that many fine images to a relative handful, but that, as they say, is the nature of the beast.
Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but since I don't believe I've ever managed to limit myself to only "10 images", I decided to lift the target number and just go with what I feel. Ten images is now my minimum, and my maximum depends on the number of images in the pool and how I feel about things. I don't want to feature so many images that folks might get bored looking at them, and once I start approaching 20 images, posting them starts to get to be a drag, so now my limit falls somewhere between "10" and "folks might get bored / this is getting to be a drag".
This week we ended up with a collection of 25 images. Please take a look; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
Oh, and as always, please feel free to send me your word suggestions; the list is by no means limited to 136.
