Celebrating a Year

Thanks for your support!

with 28 comments

I have received awards from many friends online, and comments that have raised my spirits and touched my heart. The online poetry community has been such a source of delight and surprise to me this year. And so I have created this award from a photo of one recent moment of my year, and offer it to these 12 online friends whose work continually gives me cause for celebration. Please visit their pages:

  6. oh by the way – which widget did you use to be able to have a search poem by category down your R hand side there? I have enough content now to warrant one I think… ppl on Facebook continually ask me about forms and it would be very handy to have that so I don’t have to keep explaining or referring them to a specific poem directly

    Thanks a lot

    • You need to have each poem type as a category for the post. If it’s only a tag you can change it to a category right on WordPress– forgotten how but I did it & it was easy. Then I used a text widget & this bit of code:

    • sonnet
    • , obviously changing the name for each poem type. A friend figured it out for me, I’m not really intuitive about this sort of thing. Good luck!

      [Oh I see the code didn’t show up, but can you take the “sonnet” and see what it is by clicking the html tab? If not, email me off-page & I’ll send it to you.]

  • You are just awesome Marilynn. You know when some time periods just seem to have too much stuff swirling around in them to be able to get a grasp on life? My life has felt a little like that as of late. Last week it was a LOT like that actually. Being able to come and find like-minded individuals here in blogland really does brighten up my days at some points. I really appreciate you offering me this and said as much in my post today. Thank you dear lady.

  • Marilynn, From the top of my heart, thank you for this honor…such a beautiful serene photo this is. I apologize for the lateness of this comment, but I have just returned this afternoon from my son’s Basic Training Graduation of the Air Force. I will post this on my blog very soon as I catch up here, now that I am back. Hope all is well… will be visiting your blog often… Thanks for sharing your words and for this lovely gift. Heartspell :)
