Over the past several months I have struggled with my time and ability to give Poets United a decent and worthy amount of attention. If it wasn’t for the help of two very wonderful and supportive ladies this site could have very well failed. Mary Kling and Sherry Blue Sky have been working tirelessly behind the scenes here at Poets United to ensure an active Poets United for all of its members and readers. Both of these ladies deserve a bravo and pat on the back from us. I am so grateful for their willingness to step up. Thank you both very much!
I recently have not been able to add all the new members wanting to join but will make a point of doing that here today and in the near future. Do to my increased workload I am parceling out the responsibilities and days here at Poets United so if you have any interest in helping us manage the site please let us know by emailing us. Title it something simple like “I want to help”. There is no pay for this and the deadlines are fairly flexible. It’s strictly voluntary. Places that could use a volunteer are listed here:
Saturday – We would like someone to post a classic poem every Saturday. The rules are simple and you have a lot of freedom. We just would like a consistent poster.
Greeter/Welcomer – We need someone willing to welcome and add new members to our blog roll and list as they ask to be a part of us. They would also need to ensure that all blogs listed are active within the last 120 days (4 months).
Representative/Blog visitor – We need a few people willing to explore the blogs of our members and comment as a representative of Poets United ensuring we have a presence in the Poetry Blog community. With us being 250 plus strong it is hard to get out there and visit every blog to show our support.
We are also open to poetry related posts and ideas as long as they are not advertisement or self promoting. If you wish to write an article or highlight an important aspect of poetry or place in our community we can post those on Friday’s as that is our open date.
Any and all support is welcome but please only volunteer if you can afford to spend the time(at least 1 hour or so a week). We can give access and show you how to do it if you are unsure.
And one more time for good measure if you stumble across Mary Kling or Sherry Blue Sky throughout the blogosphere please thank them for a job well done in keeping Poets United afloat. They truly deserve it. They are the reason we are still going!
