I have decided to start a new weekly feature.
I will be accepting poems from anyone one interested.
I will post one poem per week onto my blog (my blog has 57,000 views and 5,600 followers) and
I will also share the poems with my Twitter account and my face book page fans.
I will post the poem featured on Fridays under:
Fridays Featured Poet
To participate please like and submit your poetry on my face book page. Click on the link below to get there.
I look forward to reading your submissions!
Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!
When I started my blog I had no idea what to expect or even any idea what to write about. The journey has evolved on it’s own and I’m so amazed that even one of you actually wants to read my poetry and posts so thank you so much for helping me build confidence in my writing. There is much more to come I assure you!
I know over the summer my Pay Day Thursdays were interrupted along with the weekly ‘Storetries’ but they will return in October for those of you that are wondering and interested!
Also, the ads that keep popping up at the end of my posts are not there by my choice, Word Press just decides to put them where they want…for now.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, TODAY IS A HAPPY DAY FOR ME!!

So I have come up with a weekly collaboration idea! I challenge you as writers and poets to “stuff” my opening and closing paragraphs with a written paragraph of no more than 5 sentences or a poetry verse of 6 lines that would fit as the “stuffing” of the story.
Take your time and think about it so you have a lead in and a lead out of your paragraph or verse so that I can link it all together. I will also link each contribution to your blog so we can all showcase what we have to offer and take a peek at the submissions we love.
Keep it true to your style and flare but remember nothing over a PG rating please.
I will also add 4 photographs into the ‘storetry’. Please submit poems, writings and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with Stuff it Poem, Stuff it paragraph or Stuff it Photo in the subject line.
Submissions must be received by 4:00pm eastern time by the Monday before the Stuff it Tuesday.
All submissions will be used. Look below for this weeks Stuff it.
Time for this weeks Stuff it Tuesday Collaboration. This one is a little more challenging!
He awoke to the dripping sounds of the rain. He slowly stirred and turned over to lay on his stomach and peered out the raggedy opening of the window in his hut. It had been two weeks now that he had been staying in this filthy, wet hut. As he stared off into the rainy sky in wonderment of the journey that had led him here.
The mud squishing between his toes
The villagers and grass huts lined in rows
He looked back
A foreigner in a foreign land
His destruction led by his own people’s hand.
Check out the past 3 weeks here!
So this week there were not as many submissions but it still turned out nicely.
I put the link to each persons submission below their piece so that you can check out their blog. Please show support and give their blog a look to see if it’s something that interests you. If you would like to read last weeks ‘Storetry’ you can find it here.
I’ve had many people say they will participate next week in the STUFF IT TUESDAY challenge, so let’s see if these people are people of their word or not! *gasp, did she just say that? Yes I think she did!*
I will post this weeks opening paragraph and closing poem under the Stuff it Tab on my main page tomorrow. So watch for it if it interests you.
Let’s get to it!
People have been flooding my email with questions asking how I did ‘it’. What did I do? How could I have 2,250 followers and over 16,000 hits in just 40 days?
So out of respect for inquiring minds I will share some of my ‘tips’ on how to be a ‘prominent’ member of the blogging community.
Five things NOT TO DO (so don’t do them!)
