The benefit is that I’ve found mentions of the blog or a post that for some reason WordPress didn’t find allowing me an opportunity to comment and thank the author. For the most part the content of the messages have been expected. But not this one.
I hit the jackpot with results for the categories of news, blogs and web with five results. Of course, none of them were related to me. Let’s take a look at the results for “Bucksome”.
This entry does have to do with finance so it’s pretty tame. It’s a news story about the Fed’s recent move to charge banks more for emergency loans and that it will result in making the dollar more attractive by giving the “buck some extra shine”.
There are two results this day for blogs. @ Hindupadwrites about jail inmates making organic dry colors and how other manufacturers in order to “make a quick buck some” add toxic ingredients. Due to my ignorance, I can’t figure out what they do with the colors but it sounds like a positive project for the inmates and the consumers.
The second result is from a new blog with a interesting name, Pointless Rantings from a Shallow Soul. I don’t get the point (hence the blog title) but apparently “it’s easy to make a buck some would say”.
The two web alerts seem promising related to a women’s curves and masculinity. At You and Your Wedding a bride asks how to keep her “bucksome” bridesmaid ta-tas under cover. (Apparently buxom is spelled differently in the UK.)
Sociological Imagesdiscusses several ads attempting to show how their products make the man even more manly. A commenter includes the magic words in the context that one of the ads may be attempting to “buck some of the stereotypes”.
Checking out the articles in this alert has taught me two things. One is that none of them were as interesting as they looked and therefore I wasted my time (and yours). Second is that I need to edit my alert with quotes so I only get bucksome.
If you haven’t already set up any alerts, give it a try. You might find something fun.
