"30 Awesome Poetry Blogs"

I am pleased to announce another recognition for “One Poet’s Notes,” the editor’s blog for Valparaiso Poetry Review. Online Colleges and Universities, a web site designed to offer “the most up-to-date and complete information about online schooling available,” has named “One Poet’s Notes” among its “30 awesome poetry blogs,” locations that are considered “great sources of innovation and poetry.”

As mentioned in previous posts when “One Poet’s Notes” has received similar positive attention, such rankings admittedly can be subjective and incomplete. Indeed, I am continually delighted by the many fine blogs devoted to poetry that I have discovered across the Internet. Nevertheless, I am pleased and honored by the good company on this new list of interesting blogs that I regularly visit for enjoyment and enlightenment about poetry or other topics concerning poetics, including “American Life in Poetry,” “Amy King,” “Blogalicious,” “Chicks Dig Poetry,” “Here, Where I Am,” “Mark Doty,” “Poet Hound,” “Poetry Foundation,” “Read Write Poem,” “Robert Peake,” “They Shoot Poets, Don’t They?” and “World Class Poetry,” among others. Readers are urged to explore the thirty blogs cited by Online Colleges and Universities.

Additionally, I thank visitors to “One Poet’s Notes” once more for their continued support of Valparaiso Poetry Review and this editor’s blog.

It's a strong list, wildly incomplete as lists often are. I am glad to see Lemon Hound and Diane Lockward represented. My blog is newer and more personal at times; I'll plug it, if I may.

My claim is that is covers,"poetry, politics, fiction, review, this life, memoir, the sublime" ... in reality it's mainly about the process of writing.
