So this is the first post I’ve actually made that is not just a poem or picture. I just wanted to thank all of my viewers and followers SO much for their support! I’ve been writing poetry for years and have always wanted to share my work with others but was way too nervous to do so for a long time. I actually did have a poetry blog about 2 years ago that I ended up deleting because I got too shy. Almost all of my work is based on a really personal level and I try to pour the rawest of my own human emotion into my poetry. It’s really hard for me to even let the closest of family and friends in that far never mind strangers. But I took the risk and it looks like it’s beginning to pay off.
So thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for taking the time to read my stuff and give me some feedback. I really appreciate every view, comment and “like” that I get and I’m really looking forward to seeing how things go from here.
I’ll continue to post new stuff as often as possible. There does seem to be no end to the poetry within me. I wish writing my novel would come along as easily…haha. Anyways, I really can’t stress enough how much the feedback means to me and I’m definitely open to discussing the meaning behind my poetry, answering questions, looking at different interpretations, receiving constructive criticism..all that good stuff. The best part of writing poetry for me is seeing how other people will interpret it. Also, if you have a poetry blog or photography blog or something similar that you want me to check out, then lemme know and I’ll definitely do that and will probably follow you.
Alsoo…I did recently start up a new blog. Since this one is generally very serious and whatnot, I thought it might be nice for me to also have a place where I can express my more wild side in a way that is more open and straight forward than poetry. It’s a little weird…but I’m a little weird so it’s fitting I suppose. It’s not a big deal or anything, I more started it for my own entertainment than for the point of getting lots of views and followers, ect. Haha, anyways, it’s kaileysbrain.wordpress.com/ if you wanna check it out.
I’m also looking for any ideas on how to make my blog a bit more…interactive. So if you have anything in mind that you’d like to see me doing on this site, or my other sites for that matter, let me know.
As you may have noticed, most of my poetry is free verse. I’m going to start trying to write poetry that follows more of a format, like a haiku or sonnet…this has always been difficult for me as I’ve never really had to focus on my poetry before, it sort of just flows out of me and finds its way onto the paper. But I do love a challenge in my writing so I thought I’d give structure a try. Wish me luck!
And thanks again to my followers and viewers. I hope you continue to take interest in my work!
