TO YOU NEWCOMERS

TO YOU NEWCOMERS:

(Met several this last week!)

Blogging can be a great art,

If it doesn’t pull you apart…

Expectations

Make for frustrations

When too high at the start!

Better to blog faithfully

And wait for what will be…

Likes are slow

For what they don’t know,

They’ll find it eventually.

Most of us don’t reblog,

But a visit back can be logged…

If you can’t agree

Find SOMETHING to see,

To appreciate back, comments log.

Be willing to slowly expand,

Followers come as they can…

Enjoy your stuff

And then enough

People will understand.

–Jonathan Caswell

A BLOGGER AT THIS PACE…?

A BLOGGER AT THIS PACE…?

 

Went six pages out of nineteen,

Of following the MUMFORD scene…

At a poem every six,

Posting them betwixt

Other blogs make this poet quite keen.

Been going amongst followers of this blog,

To see what they’re doing and jog…

Their memory

To remember me,

The next time they are visiting blogs.  🙂

And still collecting gravatars,

Those creative women are stars…

From the heavens above

With blogs I oft love,

Being creative (like me) with life’s scars!

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

I WOULDN’T MENTION THIS…BUT

I WOULDN’T MENTION THIS…BUT

A time for apology

To those who follow me…

Via this blog,

Complaints have been logged

Although done very graciously!

My poetry’s lost in the sauce

And I think I know the cause…

Reblogging so much

Of stuff I can’t touch

Of interest to me–ain’t a plus!

As much as I like to see

Other’s work, I have to be…

Recognizing the fact

Poetry’s the main act,

At least it’s intended to be.

Responding in part to the market,

Perhaps the “reblogger” will park it…

Maybe twice a week

That fellow can seek,

Something interesting and mark it.

When a blogger can’t find poetry

That’s supposed to be there, you’d agree…

It’s time to change

Or re-arrange

The frequency and degree!
