(thank you Rachel for the list idea.) Very narrow, isn’t it – and limited to the topics in my own life. Knew this, but realized it more strongly when I saw how much better the fiction writers were than the poets at trivia. Doing fiction leads you into research, to knowledge. Poetry – at least contemp., at least most of it – often leads you to your self.

This is a problem, isn’t it? There should be more poems that lead you to knowledge, to news, like a novel – nouvelles – news.

But I am learning that coming into writing with the attitude of “I should be doing X Y Z” is ineffective. The only way to write is to write the poems you have to write.

Still, I am going to give myself extra points for every poem that expands the topic list.

  1. Hi blogger, i found this post on 19 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi
    bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor. One of
    the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts
    and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate
    is important for increasing your rankings naturally. There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
