Why I Started PWB

I started Poets Who Blog because I wanted a way to stop "Screaming into the dark," of the blogoshphere. That means posting and never knowing if anyone would read or care that I posted.

I wanted to create a supportive community.

I longed to bring poets together to review each other's work. We've had a lot of bumps a long the way but there were awesome times to. Playing poetry tag, hosting poetry carnivals, add a line poems, jigsaw poems, and our monthly poetry collections are all fond memories I have.

The best part of PWB though was the poetry groups that we made where we reviewed each other's work. Because those put into action the true purpose and meaning of this site.

Reading this post reminded me of why I started PWB.

Apologies

I have neglected and abandoned this site for the last six months. Basically I became consumed with writing fiction and did not focus on poetry at all during this time. Each time I thought about updating here it just seemed overwhelming and not fun.

I did enjoy this site for years and I did enjoy the poets I met. I really did owe our members more than disappearing without a trace.

For new poets who have tried to join recently I have not added any to our list because I have not been to blogger in months. It took me quite a while to remember my password to log in today.

What prompted me posting here?

Finding this blog:

www.poetswhoblog.com

Someone has taken our name and made a new site. At first I was kinda upset but PWB is certianly not trademarked and since I have disappeared from the poetry community its not like I have a lot of room to be offended.

I've chosen to look at it in the way that possibly whoever started that blog enjoyed this one and decided to expand on it. Its also possible the name is a coincidence.

I've decided to start updating this blog again but go slow. There will be no poetry projects or big events here anytime soon. Maybe next year if the site gets going again.

I really can't promise much because I don't want to become overwhelmed again or make promises I can't keep.

So to whoever is still around PWB is back. Thanks for stopping by our site. Today will be a fresh start for us. I realize I left everyone hanging and its possible no one will want to read this site anymore.

I don't want to post out of obligation, which is how I felt before, but because it is enjoyable. So if you still want this site to go on, let me know.

I tried to log into my poetswhoblog email address and found out it was deactivacted at yahoo dot com because I had not been there in four months. So whatever anyone sent me I'm sorry but its gone.

I know I had a responsibilty to this site and I've been slacking off but then again this is just a hobby, not a job, and I don't get paid for it. I'll try to get into posting here again, see if its fun, and see if I can find enjoyment in this hobby again.

Whatever happens I really did love PWB for a long time. It was a fun ride. Thanks for taking it with me. I hope the members here have enjoyed the site.

Your Blog Manager,

Sara
