Thank You: The BEST month in PoetrySoup's 10 Year History

Blog Posted:12/20/2013 4:21:00 PM
We just wanted to say THANK YOU Soupers. You have made December (and it's not over) the BEST month in PoetrySoup's 10 year history. We've had more comments, poems posted, and new members this month than any month in history. We cannot believe the incredible poetry that is being posted. Unfortunately we cannot read all of them, but the ones we read are fantastic. We look forward to 2014. That should be a very exciting year for the Soup. Thanks Soupers and keep the great comments and poems coming...

Don't forget to welcome all of the new Soupers!

Quote LeftI must be honest with myself to say that Ive been tremendously enriched by critique and friendly suggestions of other poets from this site. And as if that was not enough, the fact that one's poem occasionally get published is another challenge on its own. In all, this site has been a blessing and a source of encouragement to many people to keep on dotting until the ink finishes. Kudos for providing this wonderful platform.  Quote Right

    I believe month, but not year. There's actually a site one can go to, just to check the traffic from any favorite site. Poetry Soup, I have to admit this month has been one crazy December, for my email. It's very annoying. I've never been so spammed with poetry soup notification. lol..... you rock soup... love Linda
