PersonaPaper is to Search Engines AS ...
Got nothing but love for PersonaPaper.
The publishing platform is simple and easy to use yet powerful and allows for lots of creativity. Your displays can be very visual and the ability to share interesting and related links enhances the content of your post. You can't embed a YouTube video (or other video) but that's OK.
This is not a rant. This is more like a lesson learned on … how to appreciate an unexpected harvest.
At two of my blogs there is a feature that allows a visitor to “Visit a Random Post”. Wordpress and Tumblr have this feature. With Wordpress, place “?random” behind the blog URL; with Tumblr you type the word “random” (sans question mark) after your blog's URL. Whatever POPS UP! You can surprise yourself over and over. If a reader lands at the blog and doesn't want to go through posts archives chronologically or search by categories or tags, but they are curious to know what the blog entries are about, they can view a RANDOM post. Neat feature huh?
PersonaPaper has no such feature.
However … ever use a search engine to find FOPP posts?
If you're American-educated, then you probably experience SAT deja vu. :)
People educated in America who have had to take scholastic aptitude tests (SAT) know there is nothing more fun than the “Comparative Analogy” part of those tests. (Some of you are laughing already at the memories, huh?) The question would start off with a comparison and then the student had to finish the analogy by making similar comparison using the multiple choice answers provided.
Let's fake a sample test question.
PersonaPaper is to Search Engines AS …
Search Results are to:
(A) WOW! Just what I was looking for!
(B) Hmmm? Not quite what I was looking for.
(C) Well! That relates. If you stretch it!
(D) Uuuhh? … Your guess as good as mine! (???)
PersonaPaper has some sort of “weird” relationship with the search engines. Anybody who has searched via Google for FOPP content knows this. The results used to puzzle me but now … whatever bounty is yielded from my seek and find efforts? Just gonna go with it!
Today while looking one of MY old posts, found FOPP gold!
BTW, the correct multiple choice answer is (C). :)
It's kind of like random results, if you use your imagination.
So pleased with the finding results that it didn't matter to me what the search was for! :)
