poet laureate of the blogosphere?

according to Blogpulse there are more than 4 million blogs. in fact there are some 60000 new blogs every day. so it's humbling that anyone finds a path here.

I encourage everyone to seek out this contest not because it honors me but because it honors all poets who blog. there are many worthies not on this list but this is a start. it's an exciting & supportive community.

Hi Alex, The Blogosphere Poet Laureate contest is fun. I'll add you to my blogroll. I love your poem, "The American Way."

Helen Losse

This comes up deadmule because I'm the Poetry Editor of The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.

The contest is a scream. I love that Billy is doing this...he's such a supporter of poetry and blogging in general. The number of visits to my blog in the last 24 hours or so has been amazing!

yes Collin -- I've had as many hits today as in a whole season of "The Sopranos."

anyway I'll be away from a computer all week. by the time I get back I expect to see you wearing yr laurel. save me one of the leaves & I'll make an art piece from it.
