Through various fathomless
Like empty sprites
Then these visitors
shrink to a speck.
past deeper veils.
Where older shades
in their graves.
(Above is a revised poem, from when I was 23.)
I’m still unable to write fresh poetry, since a recent illness.
Post-viral depression eased, yet the creative spark’s gone missing.
I’ve spent more time than usual on WordPress in the last few months.
Enjoyed discovering loads of new writers, poets, artists, and photographers.
As a result the number of blogs I follow has reached about 240.
This is making it difficult to keep up!
(So far, I try to read every post from blogs I follow.)
Seeing my audience grow is exciting.
(I’m truly grateful to each one of you.)
Though I also feel quite guilty, for not following back all
of those who are kind enough to follow me.
But the number (700+) seems rather large to make that practical?
I’d love to hear how many blogs other readers follow?
Do you think 240 is a lot?
Or am I being a WordPress wimp?🙂
Do you ever feel bad for not following people back?
Do you follow blogs you don’t actually read?
(I worry that over 300 may become hard to focus on?)
To be honest, I notice myself hesitate about following long-form, writers, lately.
Especially if they post more than once per day.
I’m much happier to follow those posting weekly, or infrequently.
Plus, art and photography blogs (which are often less text-heavy).
Comments are always VERY welcome!🙏
(Art on the blog is mine: I hope you like it?)
