Top 100 Poetry Blogs


A new publication has appeared from Online University Review, the Top 100 Poetry Blogs. Diane Lockward's Blogalicious is on the list - congrulations, Diane! It has given me a new source for adding to my Blogroll, which I'm regularly doing, now that I cleaned house. Despite the intolerable slowness of the new Blogrolling.com (guys, can you do something about the atrocious loading time?). I noticed that Avoiding the Muse made #33 AND #34 on the list - impressive blogging, no doubt. They want to be sure you don't miss it.

Sadly, Rocket Kids didn't make the Top 100 list, but then we prefer to stay in a quiet corner of the Internet, far-far away from any university, so it's no wonder a university missed us. And I like to think of Rocket Kids as indefinably eclectic, if not electric.

Among the poetry blogs I'm adding to my Blogroll, thanks to Top 100:

One Poet's Notes (Edward Byrne, editor Valparaiso Poetry Review)
Best Words in Their Best Order (FSG's poetry blog)
White Chicken (Michelle Lewis' poetics blog)
Poetry & Poets in Rags (Rus Bowden of IBPC fame)
ReadWritePoem (speaking of eclectic and stimulating)
Nic Sebastien's Very Like a Whale (interview with editors coming soon)

I'm so glad to see Poetry Hut Blog (#16 on Top 100) return from hiatus. Yay, Jilly! I hope the coffee helped.
