The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

With selection Sunday just days away, I felt like sharing lyrics to a song dedicated to March Madness, the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With all the fans yelling
And every team telling you “the championship is near”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s the hap-happiest season of all
There will be buzzers for beating and upsets in seeding
With so much college basketball
It’s the hap-happiest season of all!
There’ll be big men for posting
Guards coast to coasting
And highlight plays that make you say whoa.
There’ll be Cinderella stories
And tales of the glories of
Tournaments long, long ago.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be Grant Hill a-throwing
To Laettner for showing
When Duke games are near
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
There’ll be great picks for boasting
Bad decisions for roasting
And Denzel putting on a show
There’ll be injuries that are gory
And tales of the glories of
Bryce Drew long, long ago
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much replays for showing
And tears will be flowing
When losses are near
It’s the most wonderful time
It’s the most wonderful time
It’s the most wonderful time
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

End of Rhyme Week Rhyme

It’s my last Rhyme Week post & I don’t mean to boast, but I am really quite happy today!

It may seed kinda bizarre that we’ve made it this far, and I think you deserve a hooray!

I never would have guessed, that I would be so blessed, to create such a fun website.

Time has flown by, and I would be telling a lie, if I said I didn’t love to write.

So I am grateful you’re reading, despite not ever needing, a silly site called Blog By Bake.

If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t know what to do, it is you I have to sincerely thank!

Thank you!

I hope you enjoyed Rhyme Week!

Thankful Thursday Rhyme

Today I am thankful for rhyming,

Because it makes bland writing sound fun.

It’s a terrific twist to text,

That can be done by anyone.


There are many reasons to be thankful for rhymes,

For one, it gives words some spunk.

It is the word equivalent of Storage Wars,

Because it can make treasure out of junk.


Rhymes are enjoyable to read,

And also fun to write.

Rhyming is so great at breaking bad writer’s block,

You could call them Walter White.


Some of the best rhymers are doctors,

Like Dr. Seuss or Dr. Dre.

They come up with such clever rhymes,

That stick in your head and never go away.


A rhyme can be defined,

As two words that sound the same.

Three rhymes in a row is a NBA Jam

Where you catch fire, like Hunger Games


Are you still skeptical about rhyming?

Still doubt you can have fun with words?

Just give it a try for yourself,

And you will have more fun than playing Angry Birds


I guess I’ve said enough good things about rhymes

But for all these reason and many more,

I hope you get my point,

That it is rhyming I am thankful for.

Rhyme Week – Blog by Bake

This week is called Rhyme Week on Blog by Bake,

And you might be thinking, jeez how gimmicky a blog can this guy make?

He can’t seriously think we would want a week of rhymes, its got to be a mistake.

I can just hear another one coming and it sounds scarier than a rattlesnake.

If he doesn’t stop soon he will give us a headache.

Seriously all these rhymes are more than we can take.

But I guess they are not all bad, maybe we should give him a break.

I will give Rhyme Week a chance and stop my bellyache.

Plus he is delivering on his promise of a week full of rhymes, so at least he’s not fake.

And rhyming all week has got to be a difficult task to undertake.

Instead of badmouthing him, I think he deserves a nice handshake.

In fact I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s, which I’ll read as soon as I wake.

And to see if he’s added more rhymes, I will check for a new post during my lunch break.

A rhyme would go well with my strawberry shortcake.

Turns out this week is better than winning Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes.

It has got me thinking all night about rhymes, as I lie awake.

It is kind of contagious, it is like a rhyming outbreak.

I just can’t get enough, give me more for goodness sake.

Turns out I really love Rhyme Week on Blog by Bake.

Rhyme Week

I am going to start off this post by letting you all know that this week I will be using performance enhancements. Not only did I figure it would be my only chance at being compared to some of the best baseball sluggers of all time, but I thought it was better to be honest and admit it upfront since you will be skeptical when you see how great my posts are this week.

Confused? Let me explain…

Recently my mom gave me a book titled, The Complete Rhyming Dictionary. She either gave it to me as a nice gift or as a subtle hint that my rhymes need a little work. Whatever the reason, I thought I would get some use out of this book and see if I can do an entire week’s worth of posts in rhyme. Sound impossible? We will find out in no time. (rhyme 1, check!)

The rest of this week on Blog by Bake will be known as Rhyme Week. And like I said, I will be using The Complete Rhyming Dictionary to enhance my performance. So if you don’t like the rhymes, don’t blame me, blame the book’s editor Clement Wood.

Just kidding, don’t blame Clement, I’m sure he’s a swell guy.

And away we go…

One segment on this blog is the Memory Monday post.

It is when I write about myself, but I do it not to boast.

It is a time to look at my history and try to learn something from my past.

But my life is sometimes boring, so who knows how long this feature will last.

The posts aren’t always exciting or drama filled like on Glee.

They are simply just something that comes from my memory.

I’ve discussed competitive eating and a game of Wiffle Ball.

I’ll talk about all the smart and dumb things I’ve done, anything I can recall.

Who knows what you will get out of my tales or what lessons you will learn.

But instead of me sharing all the stories, I think you should have a turn.

Recall your most memorable story, like when you got the high score on Frogger.

And let me know in the comments below if you’d like to share it and be a guest blogger.

Well that’s enough for now, I hope this posts is a good sneak peek.

Of what you will encounter for the rest of Rhyme Week!

Twas The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the blog

Not a creature was stirring, they were all sawing logs.

The words had been posted by the author with care,

In hopes that an audience soon would be there.


The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While Memory Monday tales danced in their heads.

And mamma in her ‘kerchief and dad in his underwear,

Makes me think about Wednesday and what I might wonder there.


When out on in the office there arose such a clatter,

Everyone sprang to their computers to see what was the matter.

When they opened a new browsing window it flew in like a flash.

Some much content so quick it is amazing their computer didn’t crash.


There was a Thankful Thursday post here and another one there.

And so many funny stories they nearly fell out of their chair.

All these great topics could fill all the books on the shelves.

That might even impress Santa Clause and all of the elves.


I know that this silly poem might be more than anyone could take.

But I thank you for reading another rhyme from Blog by Bake.

But I will end it by saying, as I continue to write,

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!

No Topic Rhyme

I have many words inside my head, but nothing to write about.

I don’t have a writing topic in mind, so it is a theme I am left without.

I can’t imagine I’ve covered every issue, since I haven’t been blogging for many days.

But here I am, stuck in a rut, and my writing keeps finding delays.

Should I write about planning for the future, or should I spend more time on the past.

Without an answer to those questions, this blog will surely never last.

Where can I look for more topics? Where do all the great ideas hide?

I guess I could do a Google search, I bet millions of links that would provide.

But I want to be original, and I don’t want to copy anyone’s work.

Maybe I should write about pop culture, but who cares what I have to say about Miley Cyrus’ twerk?

To fix this problem I’ll ask my readers, and see if they can help me out.

Post in the comments section below any topic you want me to write about!

Blog Reader Rhyme

A blog reader is someone who knows exactly what they want.

They want fun and exciting content, as well as a readable font.

A blog reader wants substance and something with some style.

Give them a clever story to read and they might choose to stay for awhile.

A blog reader doesn’t want big words like expialidocious.

They enjoy pictures about food as long as it is nothing atrocious.

A blog reader is very smart and doesn’t fall for silly quirks.

They have great comments and feedback, always letting you know what works.

This knowledge of blog readers is available for all other bloggers to take.

But know that the best blog readers are ones who follow Blog By Bake.

Writer’s Block Rhyme

I sit here with my notebook, trying to think of something to write.

But I can’t find the words, despite trying with all of my might.

I want to post something clever, like an old story my readers have enjoyed.

Instead my page stays blank and I begin to become annoyed.

I guess this is writer’s block, when you just don’t know what to say

It is as if I’ve used up all my words, and I have none left for today.

A blog is not good without words, at least that is what I’ve been told.

I could try to start a new trend, but a wordless website seems a little too bold.

What would we do without Blog By Bake, it would be utter devastation.

Where would we get goofy posts, featuring way too much alliteration?

How could this ever happen to a writer so young and new?

If I can’t think of what to write, whatever will I do?

So instead of forcing words on the page and wasting everyone’s time,

I have decided to take a different approach and I’ve come up with this writer’s block rhyme.
