I had one response to the last blog entry who agreed with me that this is a place for musing.  So – I will.

I love books. I still have my Nancy Drew books and my Mother’s copy of Lorna Doone (which was published early in the last century). I print a hard copy of anything sent to me online if I have to study it or need to refer back to it. Part of this is my eyesight (can’t see anything “far” away) and part is habit – I like the feel of paper in my hands. If I post a poem today, or a link to a poem today, unlike Lorna, it’s gone tomorrow – at least from the screen. I have to ‘click”  around to search for it (or use the Help which is only “helpful” if you already know the answer so you can click on the right line). I know that online vs print is not an either/or, nor is it a final answer; both are usable, sometimes user friendly – either changes the carbon footprint.

I love and have been published in several online mags. They certainly are seen by large numbers of readers. Imagine seeing a poem of yours on Poetry Daily?  A WOW moment!!  So, as I ended the last entry with realizing that I need to look at more blogs, so I must look at more ezines.

Why does my musing seem to lead to more for me to do??

    How was Cape May? Did you happen to see Karen Z. Duffy there? She’s a great poet from AC. I met her in Vt. Hope you are doing well!
