I was notified the other day that Blogalicious has been included in a just-posted list of the Top 100 Poetry Blogs. Yay, for Blogalicious!
The list is prefaced by this note: "No longer relegated to textbooks, libraries, and anthologies, poets now have an array of options for reading poetry, posting, the latest in news, and more, thanks to the internet. Below are 100 blogs and sites for every poet, from a seasoned professional to a child reading their first poem."
The list is then divided into four sections: Collected Works, Original Work, For Children, and Video and Audio Poetry.
Collected Works, the largest of the four sections, includes Blogalicious and Harriet: The Blog, Poets (Academy of American Poetry), The Best American Poetry, The Best Words in Their Best Order (The Farrar Straus and Giroux poetry blog), and 42 others.
Original Work includes blogs whose keepers post their own work along with other items of interest. Such bloggers include Sandra Beasley, Greg Rappleye, and Mark Doty.
For Children includes blogs that are geared towards young poets. I suspect that teachers might find these blogs very useful. Some of those included are Chicken Spaghetti, Jack Prelutsky, and Barking Spiders: Poetry for Children.
Video and Audio includes blogs where you can find poetry read by poets and lovers of poetry. Poets old and new are included.
I'm bookmarking this site and plan to revisit often.
