Last week, I completed separating my blog! Those of you who’ve been reading my blog, will of course have noticed that I’m using a new theme. In point of fact, it’s the theme I started out with back in January but had changed in March. The only difference being that I’ve decided to use a dark background that will exalt the photographs and images of my posts. It’s also a little easier on the eyes and has “foot bars” which is useful. The links are in green by the way instead of the classical blue. Oh and the name is slightly changed: Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library.
With the new format, I also began to weed out old reblogs, update categories and retire some of my older work that has little to do with my present subject matter. Now all the poems have their own category and are no longer in the global generic category: Poetry, and believe me that was a long haul, I never realized how much I’d written!.
I’ve still got to finish removing the old photographic work from the Library, they have already been exported to Through the Eye of Bastet, which is the name of the new blog, just in case you didn’t know! I also updated the About page, but left the Front Page is the same…I may go read it and update it soon, but it will remain “as is” for the most part.
I also blog elsewhere. Most of you know this, some may not.
I blog with WDBWP as editor under the main title of Pixelventures, three posts concerning photography: one a prompt (Tuesday), the other a closing of the previous prompt (Wednesday) and the third a general “whatever I can get together about photography” post (Saturday).
On the 13th Floor Paradigm I post as author: I write about Japanese poetry from time to time, last week I tried to get into what a Haiku and Senryu are for us in the West. I’ve also done a writing prompt which I’ve decided to make a Sunday (Weekly) event dedicated to Power Shorts. This blog is a fairly new blog. The result of encounters between 13 poets and writers. We have a vague idea of creating a meeting place, where we can showcase different aspects of writing (poetry and prose) and blogging in a radical way, radical as in roots. Go to the home page and you can see some of the articles written so far! It hasn’t really taken off yet though but I have high hopes that it’ll eventual find its direction.
And enfin, I write for the Poet’s Corner now as author under the category: Georgia. I’m there because I wanted to write among poets and see what real poets think about how I write. “Real” as in people who specialize in poetry, unlike me who is a bit like a chaotic butterfly that flits here and there. (I transfer my poems onto the Library so my community can read them.)
Now this may seem a lot, but basically it’s what I would have done anyway on Bastet and Sekhmet. Writing on different blogs only means that I write on a specific subject for one blog or another.
The price paid this week though is the backlog of reading that I’m never going finish, as I was commenting with Tamrahjo yesterday. Once you fall behind on the reading you never ever get current again. I don’t “easy like”, though in these cases I really feel tempted to do so, just so people will know I haven’t abandoned my community.
This was the week that was! I didn’t talk to about my writing! I’ve been doing a daily Haiga challenge, experimenting with poetic forms, I’ve written a few short short stories, participated in a couple of photographic challenges etc. etc. etc.
This week I’m going to continue with experimentation of poetic forms, continue the daily Haiga and Haiku, write a few short short stories, play around with photographs, read my reader and comments and notifications and reply to them…uhm, well, in a few words, what I always do, no?
Ciao! Thanks for dropping by and have a great week blogging!
