Best of the Web: Top Poetry Blogs, "One Poet's Notes"

I am pleased to announce another recognition for “One Poet’s Notes,” the editor’s blog for Valparaiso Poetry Review. The Daily Reviewer has named “One Poet’s Notes” among its “top poetry blogs.” The Daily Reviewer selection committee reports their process includes sifting “through thousands of blogs daily to present the world's best writers,” and that it considers blogs chosen for distinction as ones that are “authoritative on their respective niche topics and are widely read. To be included in The Daily Reviewer is a mark of excellence.” As mentioned in previous posts when “One Poet’s Notes” has received similar positive attention, such rankings admittedly can be subjective and incomplete. Nevertheless, I am impressed by the good company of so many other blogs I regularly visit for enjoyment and enlightenment about poetry or other topics concerning writing and the arts, including The Best American Poetry, Harriet: The Blog, Poet Hound, Poetic Asides, Poetry Foundation.Org, Poetry News, Poets.Org, Silliman’s Blog, They Shoot Poet’s—Don’t They?, World Class Poetry Blog, and a number of others. The Daily Reviewer advises “One Poet’s Notes” also received consideration due to high recommendations received from the blog’s readers. Once more, I thank visitors to “One Poet’s Notes” for their continued support of Valparaiso Poetry Review and this editor’s blog.
