A Place to Post Poems

Publish date:

I've been receiving reports since yesterday that posting poems in the comments is proving even more problematic than usual. The programmers are looking into why this issue is suddenly getting even worse than usual, but I want to offer some alternative places to post in the meantime:

  • Post poems over at my personal blog. I've created a special post just for the sharing of poetry; everyone is more than welcome to come crash at my place. (Click to continue.)
  • Create a personal blog. If you don't have one already, right now might be the opportune time to create a blog. They are free and easy to create. (My personal blog is Blogger, but there are other options available as well.) You can share links to your poetic posts on Twitter using the #aprpad hashtag.
  • Share poems at another online forum/group. Walt provided a link in the comments of today's prompt, but there is also the Poetic Asides group on Facebook or the Poetic Asides group over at the Writer's Digest Community site (free to all).

Also, I just want to remind anyone who is anxious about not being able to post their poems: Posting to the blog is not required to participate in the April PAD Challenge. At the end of the month, I will be collecting submissions of up to 5 poems from each poet via e-mail to use in my consideration of the Poetic Asides Poet Laureate and a list of top poems to commend.

I do apologize for the frustration posting poems can cause on this blog, but I hope everyone is having a fun and poetic April.
