Thanks Star of David, I hope to see some of your work back on this page soon. We are dwindling and need poetry to soothe our souls.
Just Some Girl; Need some words from you too please.
The different voices here are needed to balance the page and give it excitement and flavor. Y'all go for it! It's delicious to create something that makes you feel.
Star of David; Just went back in and found your May poems. Excellent as usual..keep it coming.

Composing Dawn; I am such a sucker for kissing and love poems...thanks for sharing.
thanks B.K. been writing on and off and always posting here of course. We do need more poetry...
New Blender Digest is here.
I know it's gotten a little melancholy, B.K. trying to revive folks we haven't heard from in a while.
My vision of what the site becomes is slowly taking shape in my mind. Instead of being focused on months, it's going to be more like a blog, more continuous, things posted to the front page closer to when people send them in.
(I think I may have to keep a closer eye, then, have some kind of moderator/approval, so we don't get killed by spam bots)
Thinking too of working my quotes and occasional doodle in their too.
Mixed feelings about it. I'm not always sure I've been a great promoter for the Blender over the years. 20 years ago my entrepreneurial friend asked why I didn't try to monetize it some how, leverage people's interest. And 10-15 years ago I was getting hundreds of submissions a month - I could just barely keep up.
I'm such a creature of habit. It's really hard for me to break patterns...
But who knows, maybe it could help revive the Blender a bit- like if I started using the FB page more, if every new work got a link on our FB page, that might bring it to people's attention more, and engage them in a way a monthly digest hasn't been...
