I bet some of you were expecting Vice / Versa here, weren't you? If you were, I'll just tell you that Vice/Versa passed into history this past week. There just hasn't been enough participation to warrant posting it each week, so it has been put to rest.
There will be a few other changes at Poets United. We think you will like them! They will begin the week of September 16, but I will tell you about them now.
Sunday: I will continue to have Poetry Pantry, which is Poets United's Open Link. We enjoy all the participation in Poetry Pantry; and, if you haven't checked it out, please do. Mr. Linky will be open from VERY early Sunday morning and will close Monday about 8 p.m. Central Time. I am asking people to link only one poem and also to visit others who link. Poetry Pantry is a nice way to get to know others in the blogosphere.
Monday - Tuesday: After Poetry Pantry closes Monday night, it will be Sherry's turn! Instead of posting her Poet Interview Series every week, there will be a rotation of articles posted. One week there will be Poem of the Week. Another week there will be a Blog of the Week. One week there will be a Poet Interview. Some of you may remember in the past when Poem of the Week and Blog of the week were regular Poets United Features. Well, they are returning! Actually this will give more opportunities for poets' work to be recognized and highlighted! This will change on September 17.
Wednesday - Thursday: On Wednesday and Thursday we can look forward to a real treat. Intead of continuing to have the Thursday Think Tank, Ella will be doing Wacky Wednesday!!! However some Wednesdays may be Wistful or Wonderful as well. You'll never know what kind of Wednesday you'll find here at Poets United, but Ella plans for it to be a treat. First Wacky Wednesday will be September 19.
Friday: Rosemary will continue to do the I Wish I'd Written This series. It's a wonderful series. If you haven't checked it out on Fridays, please do so. And comment. Rosemary works hard at finding interesting poets and writing articles.
Saturday: Kim will continue to do the Classic Poetry series. This is an enjoyable series as well. She introduces us to poets we perhaps learned about in high school or college and haven't read in a while. It is nice to know our poetry-writing roots. She puts a lot of work into her articles as well, and they definitely deserve our time and comments.
I would like to encourage each of you who participates in Poets United to take a look at the home page and at the link in the upper right hand corner, which mentions the possibility of adding your blog to the PU blogroll. Please do this so that we may see when you write a new poem and can comment on it. We also use the blogroll when we look for poets to interview, blog of the week, and poem of the week.
Also, follow Poets United; and you will see updates to Poets United appear in your Google Reader. Thus you will find out immediately when a new article goes live.
Poets United is also on Facebook. If you are on Facebook, please become a fan. If you look at the upper left on our PU home page, there will be a Facebook badge that will direct you to the page!
Yes, change is in the air at Poets United. We (Sherry, Ella, Rosemary, Kim, and I) are excited about it; and we hope you will be too!
