April is National Poetry Month and that’s got me thinking about how poetry relates to scrapbooking.
People who love poetry really love poetry according to David Orr’s book, Beautiful and Pointless (as reported by David Kirby’s commentary. This got me thinking about scrapbooking and how it seems that people who love scrapbooking really love scrapbooking. Orr simply used a google search comparing the results of loving and liking poetry. I decided to try this out with scrapbooking.
The phrase “i like to scrapbook” returned 174,000 and the phrase “i love to scrapbook” returned 244,000. Let’s try this with a slightly different phrase. The phrase “i like scrapbooking” returned 165,000 hits and the phrase “i love scrapbooking” returned 357,000 hits.
“I love scrapbooking” returned over twice as many hits as “I like scrapbooking.” So it seems that following Orr’s methodology (as described by Kirby in the NYT’s piece), that people who love scrapbooking, really love scrapbooking.
