We all perhaps have favorite poets we read on WordPress, if you are a poet the chances you read other poets on here and support them is pretty high. Please nominate individual poets and provide their wordpress URL and we’ll add them to our list.
Once we have enough nominations, we’ll open the voting. You can nominate yourself too, perhaps you can get a bit more traffic.
Then read them and we can vote for our favorites. You’ll be able to vote for multiple poets.
Here is the shortlist thus far:
Please share this post if you think it’s a good idea.
You. MV Blake. Lax Rhetorica.
Can you provide URLs possibly of their home pages?
Actually it’s okay I was able to find them manually.
I nominate HAIKU300 (https://exospection.wordpress.com/)
and begrudgingly, myself: My Life in Runes (http://runicverse.wordpress.com) just for the exposure, since I’m relatively new.
Thank you Skat, they have been added 🙂
Funny I just added the Ward guy from Toronto.
I don’t know the Ward guy from Toronto, but I don’t live too far from T.O. Where are you?
I am in Montreal, one of the poets you suggested is from T.O.
No. One is from England, and the other is me.
Thanks Becky 🙂
🙂 You’re welcome Wuji!
I nominate myself, but only for the purpose of a few more poets to follow and to have follow as well. https://questwon44.wordpress.com/
Sure Jon, thanks.
So many I like, this is just a handful.
Thanks Syl, I’ll add these to the list.
You’re welcome and thank you.
Let me know if you come across any more, I’d like a good sized list of the best nominations.
Oh definitely, I have a few more….
I also nominate https://myselfthroughwriting.wordpress.com/
I nominate http://danfrugalberg.com/ – i love his stuff!
I also nominate myself, but since I have only one poem that I’ve been willing to share, I’m linking to that specific page http://moldydaisy.com/2014/04/15/give-me-the-night/
I nominate Marcy Erb (Illustrated Poerty) http://illustratedpoetry.com/
And Jessie Gutierrez (Red String PaperCuts) http://redstringpapercuts.com
…and also you Wuji 🙂 Great idea!
I like poetreecreations.org and also keithgarretpoetry but don’t know how to link the url on my phone
I also nominate myself for much the same reasons other people have given
Reblogged this on The Spirit Creative.
and myself: https://broccoliaddict.wordpress.com/ (I don’t post poetry every day. Is that ok?)
I see names I was going to list but don’t recall seeing this one among them. I will look again.

This is such a great idea by Wuji! I see many names of poets I love listed.
Great thanks for all these recommendations
Thanks for the whole idea. I think it’s an awesome thing to do. Have a great day Wuji.
Thank you busy, it makes us see how big (or how small) this poetry community is. Crazy that the biggest blog site has so few actual poets.
I’m not sure which site that is, but this was a great idea.
Leonard Durso busymindthinking Wuji Seshat Hortus Closus https://undergroundenergy.wordpress.com/ https://nomzikumalo.wordpress.com/ abubhaji May I add more later?
Yes please give the URLs for the first few
I have tried four or five time to send and/or post on site, the urls. Maybe it’s all going to the spam folder? Or ??? I’ve hunted these up several times.
Thanks Bearpaw, though I think the list is getting sorta long though so we’ll see if we can add these or not.
I’d like to nominate myself: https://thepaperfilter.wordpress.com

Wuji has setup a survey for poets on wordpress – great idea to find new poets and support others – at the very least a bit of fun! 🙂
I’m not sure what’s going on, but a lot of the links Bear, didn’t work 😦
Well, phooey. Again, I apologize. I tried.
How odd … I see that the list repeated itself…. one of the times it “failed” was “sent” after all. Just trash the repeat, to avoid confusion. The suggestions are not that many after, all. Lisa of underground energy is the only one that didn’t “link” Here she is: https://undergroundenergy.wordpress.com/
I’m getting more nominations here than I’m getting people voting, so it’s becoming a bit funny! Thanks again for your nominations though…
So set a deadline for nominations, make a list AFTER nominations are closed. THEN vote. WordPress has an app or widget, or whatever its called that will do that .. tally, etc.
OR set a deadline and then give equal appreciation to everyone nominated. If there is one that is way and above everyone else, perhaps you have your plan of how to do that in mind already. The favorite poet in your poll may turn out to be yourself 😀
However you do it, it might be a bit time consuming. But it should be sort of fun, too.
Thanks for this opportunity to recognize some special poets.
So many….difficult to choose but I love the idea. Shared on google.
I recommend Poems and Poemes, F.G.M. URL: http://wp.me/p4xiag-1BQ
My favourite regular read is Nelkumi (https://nelkumi.wordpress.com/), I like her poems and her pics. 🙂
too late to submit Wuji?
There are so many great poets on WordPress! I guess I’m not nominated and it’s too late now? Anyway think this is a nice idea and if anyone wants to read my poems they are at http://heathergracestewart.com
It’s never too late, this is an ongoing thing and I’ll update all the nominees soon.
