No, this is not a request to open your wallet. LOL.
If you want to help me (your blog manager) and want to help PWB, then please make a point to stop in and visit (and comment) on the work of at least one poet listed in the featured poet list on the sidebar.
Thank you for making PWB work. By encouraging your fellow poets you help to grow their confidence to post online and that adds to the amount of available poetry to read for free in the world.
If you aren't interested in visiting any of the blogs listed in the sidebar, ever, then you should not be on our blogroll, as you misread the post at the start of this blog, which states the intent of PWB.
A big thanks to every poet and other blogger who has helped this site over the last year. This site is here to benefit you, as a poet who blogs, not me. I was thrilled with my personal poetry blog before I ever started this site. I have met wonderful bloggers through there who supported me.
I wanted to have a place where others could find friends that would do the same.
Don't let PWB die. As much as I like bringing you poetry news and taking part in fun things like Poetry Tag the true purpose of this site is to find at least one additinal reader for every blog on the blogroll. That being said, anyone in the I Promise program is a rock star, to me, because they are putting in motion weekly the true intent of this blog. But you can help in a smaller way. Click on one of the blogs in the featured poet section, once a week, and let a poet know you stopped in and read their work.
Like so many other things in the world, PWB only works if people commit to putting in a little time and effort. Give PWB five minutes this week and visit one of the blogs listed.
Thanks so much for all your help. This is the end of your service announcement. This was just a warning, should this have been an actual emergency you would see DANGER! DANGER! flashing in red. LOL.
