poetry or prose? April 2, 2013
Tags: articles, blogging, eclectic, fiction, niche, poetry, prose
So what’s your preference?
The last few weeks I’ve had a focus on poetry on the blog, as a bit of an experiment.
Now that it’s National Poetry Month, in my typical contrary fashion, I will be switching to prose.
This is because I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month. Instead of the punishing 50,000 word goal of November’s event, Camp allows us to pick our own goals, and I’m going for 25k, which should be much more easily accomplished. I will count blogs, articles, and fiction in one jumble of word count, and separate them out later.
My question is, what do you like to read here? Do you prefer poetic ramblings, or commentary? Do you like fiction samples or pings of other people’s amazing work?
I’m eclectic, but in the blog world, niches are good. It’s easy for your audience if you’re consistent in your offerings. It’s hard for me, because niches bore me.
Help me decide my direction and give me your opinon. What is your favourite thing on shawnbird.com?
