Topic: Blog (10/20/11)

TITLE: Blah, blah, blah blog
By Barbara Miller


Blog about the weather

Blog about the fog

Blog about the kids with their Labradoodle dog

Talking on paper like a diary in a way

Writing of family life for the family far away

It means a lot to you and to them it means much more

But for us who follow blogs it reads nothing but a bore

It can be all for fun but not fun for all

A choice must be made to read some at all

Give me blogs with humor with insights into life

How doin' things the wrong way can turn out to be right

Or cooking with real butter makes lighter into like

Stories for sake of stories is not my cup of tea

Unless of course I really am your precious Aunt Bee

So blog on about this or blah blog on about that

Just saying it's only some that keep me comin' back

I really enjoyed your POV. I thought it was quite creative. Though when I say the title, I smiled because it was the 2nd time I've read the words Blah, ... Blog. I think your point was quite clear and you held my interest from beginning to end. I understand that not using punctuation is a form of expression but I thought some commas might make some lines easier to understand. This was a fun read and made me smile.

Well written and a different way to present things. Nicely done!

Very creative. I enjoyed reading it. I had to read several lines a couple of times to get the flow going but maybe some commas would help with that. Looking forward to reading more of your writings. God Bless.

Good job on your poem about blogging. I like that you were on point about different types of blogs. Some punctuation could have been inserted in a few places.

This was really good! I liked it...It was short and to the point. Nice job.
God Bless~

True of a lot of blogs out there. We are all selective on which ones we follow. We all need to pay attention to the things that will make our writing attractive to readers. Use this forum and implement the comments and your talent will carry you far.

Nicely done. I completely agree with this poem's comment on the fact that not everyone who has a blog has something meaningful to contribute. I'm not sure that I got the meaning of some of the individual lines, but over all I really enjoyed it.

1. Nice fit for the topic
2. Point of view was creative
3. As noted, a few commas would help the reader. As you continue writing, you'll discover how to avoid the sing song rhyming in poetry.
(I fall into that a lot).:-)
4.Great start. 5.A few rough edges in the beat, but mostly well done. Loved your play on words. "all for fun, fun for all."
