National Poetry Month 2013

 spring parsley

Happy April
Happy Spring
Happy Poetry Month!!



In years past I have used this space to post daily haiku and photos all through April. This year I am not going to use the blog to do it. I feel the need to change things up and be more mobile. I want to use my iPod touch to take photos and post haiku on Twitter. I am finding several hashtags in use today, the first day of National Poetry Month: #haiku #npm #poetrymonth #haikuaday #napowrimo. What have you seen or used?

You can follow me on Twitter @AndiSibley. I am also experimenting with having tweets sent to FB and the sidebar of this blog. I haven't used Instagram so far but I am curious about how that would work. Do you have experience with it? What do you like/don't like about it?

ETA: signed up for Instagram and will try using it all this month, sharing haiga on Twitter & FB.

You can find the whole lineup of bloggers celebrating Poetry Month here at Jama's Alphabet Soup. Find more poetry happenings and ways to celebrate at Poets.org.

In my library we will be posting poems throughout the month and doing Poem in Your Pocket day on April 18.

What are you doing?
