It’s that time again… :) I think I’ve made the move in my mind already. On to another blog with my haiku. Another blog migration. This one has filled up with haiku. So it’s time to add another leaf to my haiku tree. Hmmm. I wonder if that domain name is taken? lol If not, well – don’t take it before I get there! hahaha
I will probably add to this post, as soon as I make the decision as to what blog is the next wordpress “official home” of me and my haiku.
To be continued…
So, since I already have another blog ready to go (and I’ve been posting to it from time to time) I’m going to use I’ve decided to continue with my blog refractedmoon. If any of you bloggers and haiku fans want to read some of my new haiku, you will need to look there, mostly. I’ll still write a few haiku here, and even on Haiku Pause. I still love this blog and Haiku Pause. I just don’t need to keep expanding them 1000 haiku per year or more! :)
You know, in her comment left on my new blog (not all that new, really) Sarah Whitely, my good poet friend) says that what I keep doing is more of a blog migration (not as much of a blog mitosis, as I had been calling it) like birds. I really like that. She knows something about what’s going on with me, through my haiku writing, and blog behavior. So that’s the term we’re using now – we likey! :) A blog migration. It really is more like a migration, when I think about it. How does she know me better than me? :)
If you have logged on and think you are in a different country, no, you’re probably not. This is the former “Existential Poet” blog. Now it has a new name / domain name:
My Haiku World
I had been considering the older names for some time. The word “existential” while still a great word, concept, and philosophy, had really become a tag I use occasionally on some haiku. So the blog names were really not right, and every few dozen comments or so, someone would “inquire” about a haiku and its relation to existentialism.
My goal is to write haiku about various and sundry subjects. There are no limits or focus related to such philosophy any more. I may still maintain a rather existential attitude sometimes, but I don’t think that warrants the existential blog name. It was beginning to feel like a label, and I really don’t care to defend said label, or philosophy, anyway. I want to write haiku!
But anyway, thanks for stopping by the blog, regardless of its name!
All the fame and glory was great, but it was too much pressure! :)
This blog, Existential Poet, was the featured blog for a day or so, under the poetry tag. It was a nice thing to have. But now I’m back to “relative” obscurity. Just back in the posting flow. And that feels just fine. No more trying to post a bunch of haiku to “stay on top” or whatever trips the algorithms. lol!
I’m happy to add the Blog Carnival icon to the right sidebar. If you aren’t quite sure what a Blog Carnival is all about, I’m posting the definiton off the Blog Carnival website:
A Blog Carnival is a particular kind of blog community. There are many kinds of blogs, and they contain articles on many kinds of topics. Blog Carnivals typically collect together links pointing to blog articles on a particular topic. A Blog Carnival is like a magazine. It has a title, a topic, editors, contributors, and an audience. Editions of the carnival typically come out on a regular basis (e.g. every Monday, or on the first of the month). Each edition is a special blog article that consists of links to all the contributions that have been submitted, often with the editors opinions or remarks.
There is so much stuff in the blog-o-sphere, just finding interesting stuff is hard. If there is a carnival for a topic you are interested in, following that carnival is a great way to learn what bloggers are saying about that topic. If you are blogging on that topic, the carnival is the place to share your work with like-minded bloggers.
Blog Carnival is the place to come to find carnivals you are interested in, to submit your blog articles to carnivals where they belong, and to organize and maintain carnivals.
I’ve had some of my haiku published on blog carnivals. I hope you visit them. I think blog carnivals are great ways to enrich the blogging experience.
