Can You Rhyme all the Time on a Dime?

Some of you unfortunately have had the opportunity to read some of my really bad poetry. It’s fun to do, but I’m certainly not going to quit my day job to become a poet. Back when I began writing, I played around with rhyming. I wasn’t so good at it. What do you do when you need something to rhyme? If you need a rhyme, one of the best websites I have ever seen was just passed along to me the other day.

WriteRhymes is a simple way to help you come up with words that rhyme. Simply begin typing in the box. When you need to rhyme something, hold down your Alt key, and click on the word you want to rhyme with. That’s all there is to it. When you’re finished, you can save your rhyme to your computer, print it out, or copy it to paste elsewhere.

After I had recorded this video, a community member named Seany sent me a poem he created using the WriteRhymes site. The poem is so excellent, I had to include it here!

I stopped by his website today
And had a jolly old time
Received some great advice
Didn’t have to pay a dime

They’re typically talking tech
Twenty-Four hours a day
So why don’t you stop by
You might find you’ll want to stay

Don’t worry, I’m not kidding
I ask you, please stay calm
It’s easy to remember, hard to forget
We’re at live.pirillo.com.

If you know of any other cool services or websites like this one, pass them along to me!
