My main reason for starting a blog was so that I could publish my poetry. The trouble with writing poetry is that you read it to a few friends and relations and then put it in a file, where it moulders away and is never read again. I don't want that to happen. So please read it - preferably aloud. Even though I shall not be able to hear you I shall know that my poems have gone out into a wider world than my sitting room.

Your poems have already gone out into a wider world. If you want to know who's reading and coming back for more, try downloading the Statcouner or Google Analytics code onto your blog - if you haven't done so already.

Thanks for that Robert! I really do feel that unless people are able to read what I write it is pretty pointless writing it.

Well, whether anyone reads it or not, I don't think it's 'pointless' - many writers and artists just can't help creating, they have no choice, audience or not.
