Review Haiku, again

June 24, 2017

Over the past year or so, I notice I haven’t been writing as many Review Haiku. There are a few reasons for this. One reason is that I wasn’t very satisfied with the most recent method of posting them, where I created a static PHP page for each review. While it’s good(-ish) if I want to compile them into an EPUB in the future, it’s also tedious.

Another reason is that I’ve been binge-watching TV series on Netflix and Amazon, and haven’t been watching as many movies. Very few TV series are worth creating a haiku for each episode, so I end up watching a lot of material for very few haiku.

There’s not much I can do about the latter issue, but I think I’ve fixed the former. Recently I took a class at Udemy on WordPress theme development and it was very informative. Since then I’ve created a custom theme, with a custom post type (review) and custom taxonomies for the post type. This past week I’ve been entering the older Review Haiku into WordPress and this page is the result. I hope you enjoy them.
