Between the Lines
sighhhhhh...aa...but then someone would be comparing how many read theirs to someone elses..and still would come away feeling bad..or every time they clicked on their poem it would appear as if it was read and would raise the number...the problem is... Poetry should not be competitive in a site where it is for pleasure. There will always be someone who isn't happy or is dissatisfied and will take the low numbers personally...the idea is to express oneself and share, not see who and how many respond. And if you feel at any time that one of your poems "slipped by" without responses...have a friend respond to it for you to bring it forward..I don't think there is anything wrong if you happened to have posted at a time where it wasn't noticed for whatever reason and you feel you want it to have another chance. I also have my numbers set on 200 to a page not 25 so I can definitely see the majority of poems posted new that day..maybe some need to do that in order to be exposed to all that are recent. Again...thanks for the chance to express my views...
* I sometimes feel like my poem isn't read..or that I didn't write of something worthwhile...and some days I am moody and somedays...well I just put it behind me and write another one...SOMEDAYS are like that...*s
