Keyword Challenge - Round 1 - Bowls

Posted by: Mike Savad on 06/24/2013 - 12:38 PM

i find entering these contests we have here, they come up with the darndest of words and things i never thought about at all. and when it comes time to think of words sometimes your mind goes blank. you could have many odd items in a picture and never once think about the smaller items that a collector might want but you never thought about it being a word. so i want to start this keyword challenge to see if anyone has these words - because if a collector comes in looking for something in particular, you might actually have it.

today's word is BOWLS - a bowl is a semi-spherical device (it can be other shapes as well) used to hold liquids and solids, to usually mix with something else. these bowls should be the type you would find in a kitchen (not a toilet bowl, not a bowling ball). a bowl collector might want art to go with their bowls.

i think challenges like these are better than - post your whatever common thing you have. the things i want are uncommon things that might be overlooked.

I never thought of "bowl" as a keyword for this, but I bet it would fit.

Please billy. This is not a bowl...

it's kind of a stretch, a bowl collector would be looking for kitchen type bowls. unless they make blackbird pies, and then it would suiting.

I would say that, by Mike's description in the original post, that birdbath fits in just fine. I wouldn't consider that spamming if he used 'bowl' as a keyword for it; I think it's thinking outside the box in an appropriate way.

it's not about spamming. the idea behind the challenge is - see if you have the object that meets the expectations of a buyer. i would probably put bowl for that bath also because it is a bowl. technically your hands cupped together is a bowl too. we want words that might be called upon that might have been overlooked other wise. and when you enter this challenge, use the internal search on your page (in the header bar in the images), and look for the challenge word - you want to make sure that it can be found by a buyer. it's not just a matter of knowing you met the challenge. so if you type in bowl, you should be able to find a bunch of them.

i use contests for this purpose, to find odd words i overlooked. but bowl is an easy one most people should have.

Good one - I never thought of using bowl as keyword here either, and the bowl is staring you right in the face. I guess the soup looks so delicious you forget...

I had to add it to some. In the ones without they were older uploads or maxed at other tags.
