Poetry Thursday Says Good-bye

At the end of August, Poetry Thursday will come to the end.

I will hate to see this wonderful site close down. What it accomplished was remarkable. It helped to inspire me to start Poets Who Blog. Poetry Thursday helped to spread the love of poetry throughout the blogosphere and the world.

Stop by Poetry Thursday and take part in the completely and totally optional poetry prompt next week provided by Lisa and Dana. Those ladies created a wonderful site and I thank them for spending eighteen months giving back to the online poetry community.

Your blog manager,

Sara from The Shores of My Dreams

It's indeed a shame to see Poetry Thursday close. If someone wanted to manage it I have all the free tools one would need to keep it alive at I've got blogs, forums, aggregators, toolbars, poetry search engines, free hosting for poetry videos, widgets, whatchamagidgets, thingamabobs and more.

I've got stuff I don't even know what it does and most of it is sorely under used.

I think the Poetry Thursday people say that they have a plan for continuing the project that they will announce next week. I'm not sure if the name will remain the same, but the community can move and remain intact. At least, that is my understanding.

That's wonderful to hear, Robin. I'll be sure to check out the new site.
