Someone is Special

argentpoet said...

Yes to all :) Excited for this week's rally :)

bodhirose said...

Yes, I agree to all requirements.

Why is it that my name always has a red "X" next to it when I link my name in??? No one ever explains this to me... Just wondering.

Krislin Neo, Ting (Syracuse Pike) said...

@bodhirose Same here, mine too.. I guess it is for us, just in case, we want to delete ours, you know, like the wrong link is up or something and it is only for the one who add that link to right the error.. but that's my guess... Not too sure though.. :)

Jingle said...

we all have a x to the name,

technical sign that you linked your entry in yourself, not by others.

no worrying...

have fun.

inaweblogisback said...

yes to all :)

Krislin Neo, Ting (Syracuse Pike) said...

@Jingle Oh, finally, I know what that meant.. I was wrong in some ways.. All done, more than 18.. I am finally getting sleepy.. Will return for more tomorrow, hmm, I meant, today since it is past midnight now.. Good night and good noon over at your side, I supposed.. :)

Someone is Special said...

Ji and Vinay, just read 18 poems, the min is done but will come back for more, I loved to nominate bodhirose, Vinay, Rhyme me a Smile, Blaga, Olivia, Krislin and of course Ji's poem for the honors..

Alcina said...

What does it mean to nominate..i mean is it necessary to write down the names of the people whose poems i have visited as part of the rally?

thingy said...

Alcina,

You can nominate poems you especially liked this week. You don't have to write down all the blogs you visited.

Jingle said...

Alcina,

no obligations, do it only if you want to. only if you strongly loved poets among the collections.

cheers.

periwinkler said...

Vinay,

Didn't i fulfill the criteria ? (Done) is not coming against my name. Can you tell me what I missed out ?

perwinkler,

marked you done as done,

Thanks for the patience...
at times, you do need to remind us in case we forgot/overlooked.

periwinkler said...

Thank you Anonymous! Can I know who you are ? Vinay ? Uma ? Jamie ? Jingle ? Kavita ? Blaga ? Leo ? Riika ? Aleza ? or Olivia ? :)

Jingle said...

It is Jingle here,

She is one of the major host here.

Smiles.

periwinkler said...

Thank you Jingle :) Can I know more about the Perfect Poet award ? How is it awarded ?

Waldow said...

Thanks for the sub & all the work u do. I read yr rules, and while I have sub'd back, I can't be an active participant as I do not personally have the same "keep it positive" bent you do. I'D RATHER U TALK S#!T
THAN HEAR SOME SYCOPHANT SUC! I'll definitely check out the awards and best-of's u produce. Thanks.

thingy said...

This is like Bizarro World, today.

No sycophants, here. Just people who encourage and enjoy the written word.

There are blogs to critique poetry. Not this one.

If you don't like a certain poem, don't comment.

Easily done.

patcegan said...

Yes to all! Note that my submission is a poem and the music that inspired it. Sara, a new blogger, offering free MP3 recordings of her beautiful music, wrote the music accompanying my poem. Watch next week for her poem and the music which inspired it. Enjoy! hugs, pat

Vinay, Thank you for your invitation. I've left a link and written a poem for your site and Big Tent Poetry (their prompt). I felt I have to let you know that I won't be a regular contributor. I am focusing on writing at least once a week, and would feel pressured to read in addition to this. Thank you for the invite and very best of writing to everyone.

argentpoet said...

I'm done with the required 18 comments for new poetry sites as well as repaying a visit to those who visited my site.
