After posting on ten consecutive days on this blog, what should I do next?

This post is a summary of my experience of taking the #introtopoetry course and the monthly post my followers may have come to expect.

I shall begin with the archive links.  The first and third are to my usual posts about sayings, words and idioms.   The second is a post about my travels to the first UK blog awards for which my two blogs were short-listed.  (My third blog, Sue’s words and pictures is much younger.)

Back to Nature (Part 2)

I realise that it is not very easy to find the links for older posts/newer posts in among all the clutter of my widgets below each group of posts.  For this reason I am providing links to each of my 10 #introtopoetry posts here.

I found the #introtopoetry course useful, although I didn’t allow enough time to benefit fully from all the information available about the various poetic forms and devices.  However I have all the links for future reference.  I wrote poems I certainly would not otherwise have bothered to write.  Whether the literary world has gained from this is for others to judge! 😉

Imperfection is the theme for Day 5 of the #introtopoetry course from WordPress.  The suggested form is the limerick.

Having published my Day 4 poem and getting more likes on it than total visits to my blog, I was feeling rather annoyed.  My limerick (as members of the Church of England will notice immediately) takes some inspiration from the General Confession.  This prayer is said at services from the Book of Common Prayer.  Christians are taught to acknowledge their wrongdoing and to forgive those who have done wrong to them.

Liking a post from the Reader is useful if you have read it and clicked away. 🙂

There was a keen blogger called Sue,
Who posted more than she ought to do.
She hated spam likes:
“You can get on your bikes!”
And denounced what they ought not to do.
