Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and three grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent nearly a decade now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines and for the website Shadow Poetry, and also, entering poetry contests herself.

Ms. Dietrich has won numerous awards, as well as the title Poet of the Year 2008, from the Yahoo group, Poetry For Thought. In addition, she has won prizes from the magazines Lucidity, Bell's Letters, Art with Words, Poets at Work and SP Quill, the magazine for which she wrote grammar and poetry articles as well as movie reviews and for which she acted as poetry editor for the head editor Marie Summers for six years. Many of her poems have appeared in Shadows Ink, a yearly published series of chapbooks of award winning poetry as well as in numerous other anthologies. Her short stories appeared in many issues of SP Quill and much of her poetry is published in eight chapbooks (the most recent one soon to be published is called Prosies), which can be purchased at Shadowpoetry.com.


An Opinion on Blog Topics


Blog Posted:1/1/2014 4:54:00 PM
I saw that TPS was asking us how we would feel about only doing blogs pertinent to poetry.For what it is worth, this is my opinion. A long time ago, when I started doing my own blogs, I had put up information on how to write various poetry forms, and I also did a few blogs about good writing techniques using knowledge I had gained from some poetry classes and from my field of English teaching. To my chagrin, hardly anyone visited those blogs. In fact, a few people commented that it was "over their head."  However, when I did some fun blogs that included personality tests or jokes, I remember being thrilled to see many more people visit my blogs! I have seen the pattern remain the same, more or less, in all the time I have been here. Often, the people who blog about unusual topics (dare I say controversial?) as well as the standard "fun" blogs, usually see more participation from the members.

I've also seen what does NOT work for me here. I adore movies and probably see more movies than anybody here, but I can get very few people to respond to my movie blogs. And when I was doing blogs about holidays (I did Holiday of the day for a number of weeks) I noticed they were not very popular either. I think it's hit and miss with the blogs; however, I can almost promise you this. If the blogs become a platform for the sole purpose of "education," you will see the numbers here drop off. And oh well, maybe that would be a good thing (though I am sure people will still continue to argue in inappropriate ways when they disagree. It seems to be the nature of the beast.) So let's bring on the all-poetry blogs.  I personally could use more time for seeing the poems here and start cutting back on my blog activity! 

Feel free to express your opinion on this, my friends, and Happy New Year to you all. I really appreciated the recent blogs by my friends here who are lovers of peace and kindness!

    Hi Andrea! Sometimes I really don't know what makes a blog 'tick'? It is kind of weird though how blogs on poetry aren't as big as a hit as the non-poetry ones? But yup, I do remember your blogs and I enjoyed the ones on those personality tests...maybe blogs here can also have categories? Just a thought...

    continues from below--TPS does do what it can with the multiple accounts but good lord they are not the secret service or our accounts here would cost much more. I could call a friend in the next town pay them for the account and work off their password and email and bingo, who's to know? We too frequently get all wrapped up in minutiae and cannot see the forest for the trees. Enough said--I have to go shovel more than words! LOL

    Continued from below--While you on the other hand might accuse someone of attacking your nationality etc. Whoever is being pushed against feels threatened and bullied in some manner. Personally the multiple account subject is a valid one especially if it is used for illicit purposes. TPS has to be very cautious about the legal things you mention since they have no immediate control over what is said. It is always after the fact. If you feel you are being slandered copy and paste it and call your attorney if you are so inclined, but I would advise you not to waste your time and money because like bullying slander and libel can often be very ambiguous.--continued

    Giorgio, I don't see where the initial topic was about bullying and why should it be Andrea's responsibility? If there is anyone here that stays neutral about most things it is she except perhaps on a political blog, but like Brian says below we should avoid those. There are already too many political sites and blogs for both sides. We are supposed to be here for poetry. That being said, bullying is another subject. Bullying, however is in the eyes of the beholder. For instance, depending on your (collective pronoun) perspective someone might accuse you of some level of bullying Andrea on this blog or Cyndi on another. continued

    Hi Andrea. Good points here. For me, sadly, poetry blogs tend to bore me even though that's what I'm here for. Haha. I think that a blog page that is strictly for poetry blogs would be a quick and definite flop. The blog page tends to be more for the fun of it than the information. Honestly, if I could only blog about poetry, I'd probably never blog again. I know that sounds terrible, but hey, it's true.

  1. Date: 1/2/2014 11:21:00 AM
    I believe that there's room for some education... some fun... and some chit chat... The disagreements I could do without... This is a community where the newest contest and it's results are posted... Fun is to be had... and some education can show up... I read the educational blogs and I'm sure many do... But they don't seem to need a comment... They're educational... and not asking for opinions to be bandied about... But I read most... The younger generations probably use facebook and the chat rooms more than the older generations. I suspect we're more blog people.

    Dietrich Avatar Andrea Dietrich Date: 1/2/2014 8:47:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    yes, I think our age is giving us away and we are more about blogs than chats. That's why I think so many of us older poets here enjoy the blogs for the "community effect" A lot of the educational blogs can stimulate great discussion, actually. but I've even seen fights disrupt on THOSE kinds!! There is a separate place here at soup where people have posted informational pieces. I have some grammar articles over there but I highly doubt anyone has read them! I don't know why there cannot be a place for chatting about poetry and forms, and a separate place for just chatting blogs.
  1. Date: 1/2/2014 10:16:00 AM
    part two ,because i only see the usual crowd here,,thank goodness i think are we the only ones, keeping the site going,,,or being not involved with other aspect of soup,,,like facebook, chatroom,the wall. is that where i am missing out,,? is this the reason why the family feeling as gone, because there are so many different aspects to choose from, and i only read the blogs??? i dont know,, but the contest and the blog seem to me to be under used if one remembers the past here on soup.....

    well, I am not good with chats, so if that is where the action is at, I guess I am missing out. Did there use to be a lot more people at the blogs? I seem to remember it always being about this many people. I always try to get to all the blogs as much as I can and am always surprised by the lack of support that many bloggers here receive.

    this blog is so interesting Andrea, i have for a little while now wondered about various aspects of soup,,one of them the blogs i could go on and on, but will try and summarize as best as i can with an example..we are made aware that there are thousands of poets here on soup,,and if one goes to the new poems section it looks like that may be true,,,,yet on my count which i have just done,,,on blogs and we all have the last three hundred, approx only 45-50 poets on this site wrote those....where are the thousands,

    harry, do I understand you to mean that 45 -50 poets are doing blogs? I think there is a small group of us who are very involved here. And so we are the the main ones at the blogs. It's been this way since I can remember. Before I was a premium member, one lady kindly asked me to leave the blogs. she said it was only for premium members. Don't know if that is true, but I just ignored her.

    Andrea, I've always seen PS as a Poetry workshop.If this was't on line and we met week by week we would obviously discuss other things in passing .Perhaps the only thing to remember is to avoid politics and religion and keep it pleasant as we would face-to-face.A Happy creative 2014 whether poetic or otherwise, to one and all, from your English friend across the pond.Rgds Brian

    Andrea my friend - ANY time you wanna post a movie blog I will gladly participate! If the comments lag, I will personally comment again and again to make it 'hot'...The last blog I posted was political, poking fun at our President and it quickly became nasty and personal and I will admit that I got caught up in the madness too...Blogs restricted to poetry, etc. would quickly become tiresome...A few poet tributes I posted recieved VERY few comments...

    Dietrich Avatar Andrea Dietrich Date: 1/2/2014 2:32:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    yeah, I think we need to stay away from those political ones. hahaha. I have posted at least four or five "tribute blogs" and of those, I think only half of them got more than a few comments. It made me feel bad for the poets I had paid tribute to . I thought to myself: what if that was ME being paid tribute to and only a few people bothered to say a word about my poem that was shown? I want to do it again. I just hope more people will comment to them. I admit I have not been commenting to all the blogs here lately. I simply have not had time.
  1. Date: 1/1/2014 10:56:00 PM

    EVEN if the bloggers are constrained to write only about poetry ... there will be conflicts. I'm with Carrie; moreover, I'm pro open discussions; I think that we could learn from any debate, the exchange of ideas is always positive. The problem is not the topic; the problem is the people who don't know how to discuss, how to explain or validate their point of view, people who don't "need" to learn or accept, people who think that they "have to win" the discussion ... and to do it, they degrade themselves using insults or menaces. "We" are the problem, not the topic. Happy New Year, dear Andrea!

    There should be something for every one, and who knows what's offensive to [x] may be [often is?] funny to [y] but I LIKED the PS message before posting or adding to a blog. It made you stop & think? Am I saying anything I shouldn't? Is this a good thing, a constructive thing to blog about? I'd say most of us could do without blogs with off color jokes about sex, race, creed, or national origin? A good litmus would be "could this blog hurt anyone?"

    Hiya Andy as you know i tend not to dwell on the serious, if there is s smile waiting to smile I will help it, life is hard enough and we have enough spats at home with families to contend with so I try and enjoy peace where it can be found. i love to learn off anyone offering help , I am not into egos' and hierarchy and I am not good with authority lol .I do notice the fun blogs get attention, so that's me in a nutshell...fun loving and peaceful if possible, i do have my claws but they are rarely used as I have matured or should i say grown up ... I am all for friendship I know interlectual blogs can be above me but it is more the time element than anything else, getting time to digest .

    I am not against open discussions, about most anything. It is only when a blogger or a comment becomes inflammatory, insulting, a personal vendetta, or results in anger or hurt feelings, that we lose hope of making blogs open to everyday subjects. I would rather it not have to be just about poetry....and only that. If we are "family", which many of us like to call ourselves.. a family of poets should be able to share their day, their experiences, their lives, without having to fight.The thing I have loved the most, have gained from being a Souper, is learning that we are all kin, we desire the same things, regardless of country, religion,ethnic background..we should be adult enough to share our thoughts, feelings and friendship.
