Blog Brags

Check it out, a feature on The Magic Poet!

It's amazing what you can find by googling your name, to see if you are getting "out there" on the worldwide web. I came across this yesterday, posted a month ago on June 17 in "Choice Five: Top Poetry Blogs" written by Heather Thomas, Santa Ana Poetry Examiner. I'm flattered that I'm the third blog on her list! She wrote on her blog :

Besides Wynne Huddleston’s fantastic poetry, this blog features poetry news, poetry writing, publishing, submission information, and suggestions. Two favorite poems include "Blue" and "Paint the Light."

Thanks Heather! I'm glad you like it!

Sharing Story with Paula J. Vaughan, M.H.

"It is a beautiful, rare moment when a poem brings one to tears.  Reading Wynne Huddleston’s “Granddaughter of Make-do” left me weeping.  The poem isn’t sad, in fact, it’s not emotional at all.  It’s a matter-of-fact, lovely-written ownership of being Southern-born."

Thank you, Paula J. Vaughan!

Several months ago I was surprised to find that my post "How God Uses the Holes in your Heart" was featured on "The Spirituality Book" Latest God Poems (under Citizenship Journal) on Feb. 7. I'm afraid the post is now unavailable.
