About Aberfoyle Dave
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoThis ain't my day job and that is part of the fascination and fun.

Like many others, I write my stories and poems to fill an inner need, rather than an expectation of success or acclaim. In my writing, I strive to work and craft an idea or thought in a new way, sometimes achieving something worthwhile, other times failing miserably. Constructive comments are greatly appreciated and honest compliments willingly accepted.

Roger Davis comes out


Blog Posted:3/30/2014 8:36:00 AM
When I started here, I reversed my names as an easy way of remaining anonymous. After being here for a while, I've decide to 'come out' as Dave Rodgers.

This is a great site and its a privilege to add my scribbles.

    I am not sure if it is a privilege to write them, though.

    :D Welcome, Roger! Yes, this site can be nice. It's best to ignore the poets who crow their own worth, all while making $2 off an e-book they are trying to sell, or better yet, when someone puts up a nasty comment, do as I JUST DID, send it off to Soup Admin. I'm barely on the site these days, busy with writing projects. Glad I stopped by today. Will have to drop by your pages, soon. Cheers, Cyndi

    Your Comment(s) Giorgio: 1) Feel free to do that. You have already received nice appraisals by veteran members that "do not care that much about poetry", therefore do not be so self conscious. 2)I am not sure it is a privilege to write them, though. lol
