Found the Missing Poetic Asides Categories

Some of you may have already stumbled upon this, but I couldn't locate the Poetic Asides categories until I talked to WritersDigest.com editor Brian Klems. If you look over on the right side of the page, there is a dropdown with the header: Search Blog Categories (it just blended into the ads for me over there).

If you click on the arrow for that dropdown, you'll see all the Poetic Asides categories, including Poet Interviews, Poetic Forms, previous April and November challenges, and more.

I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable with this new platform, and it's kind of neat to see people commenting directly on poems. It's also really cool to see pictures of many of you next to your poems and comments too.

There are still probably ways to improve this new blog platform, but I'm at least starting to feel a little more comfortable than when it initially launched. I hope you all are too.
