Those of you who know me or read this blog will know I don’t adhere to napowrimo strictly I usually aim to average around twenty decent poems by the end in the first year when I wrote a haiku about trying not to write a cat poem I decided it was better. You will get more poems I promise If you are a masochist that poetic effort is on Stirred Poetry’s blog which leads me onto my non poetry post. I have a few things to announce and link to.

Someone mentioned Stirred Poetry in a blog roundup and was very complimentary: http://stirredpoetry.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/daniels-fav-5-poetry-blogs/ in particular praises our multimedia approach to poetry and our Disney Rewrites series. Lovely http://techlishious.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/daniels-fav-5-poetry-blogs/
