I have a list of words, currently numbered at 142, 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 create a pool of images by Etsy POE Team members. It is this pool from which I will select the images that will populate that week's feature. It should be noted that the "tag word" in no way dictates a theme, it is merely part of the search criteria used to create the image pool.
This week our random word turned out to be "Paint" which produced a seemingly paltry list of a mere 3 pages, and a more that sufficient 85 listings.
Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but I've never been able to hold the line here at only "10 images", so 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 19 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 142.
