This is what happens when you are sick of the sound of your own voice…search engine poetry

Way too much talking for me lately. I remember feeling this way after going to job fairs (back when I used to do that). I just don't want to hear the sound of my own voice right least the sound of my voice talking about recruiting...I'll be better by next week...maybe even tomorrow.

So what to do when you don't want to talk? Invent fun new games like this one... go into your tool that tells you who is linking to your blog. Pull up all the links that came from search engines (or the most recent ones) and use the search strings to create poetry. Here are a few search strings that people used to find me today (whether they wanted to or not):

weird vending machines

employee referral programs do they work

don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got

fear of changing jobs


OK, let's try some poetry...

"Step out of the lunch room Heather" by Heather Hamilton

Is it weird that vending machines are talking to me?

The employee that I have become wants Fritos but my mind is providing a referral to the Bugles instead.  Is it all an evil program by junk food vendors? Breath they work?

Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got to eat so you end up having a conversation with that darn vending machine again? Your -co-workers are starting to find you weird.

Pretty soon, they will encourage you to get over your fear of changing jobs

    Happy Thanksgiving Heather – I hope you aren’t eating it out of the vending machine!

    I’m going to have to send you a care package so you don’t have the need to visit the vending machine. Pork rinds – 0 carbs, all the fat.

    Happy Thanksgiving Heather.

  5. Now that Heather has started this trend, I just had to jump in. The rules are, take 4 or so search strings from your referrer log, and write a poem. Here are my strings: ambiguous reference pictures of couch potatoes…
