And ya know it comes too easy...

Some one is pushing a "Blank Verse Blog Week".
Now while sometimes that sort of thing is nice, I find their explanation pretty poor.  Both reasoning and execution lack the sort of skill that should inspire me to join their little game.  For Shakespeare's birth?  Five stresses to a line, ten syllables, is that a fitting tribute to the Bard?  I could write shopping lists in that "blank verse" and most blogs have as little meaning, right?  Instead of squeezing meter from a stone, they'd do much better to push folk to -read- the plays themselves (and read aloud is best... maybe a potluck gathering with friends?)  For me, I'll write just as I always do and if it falls in pattern, well... who knew?
