This (the wordpress blog, at oregonnerd.com) is the poetry blog, largely, although I'm going to occasionally put poetry here. I expect to make a new addition to Different View itself today and then put the link there as I have here. The one linked is a "saying", which are at time vaguely similar to The Book of Changes. It has nothing to do with it other than using some of its phrases. Call me Samwise Davies. I do have three communities, one of which I intend to activate and moderate again (3 was far too much and they apparently collapsed without my active input). I don't know which at this time. I will make similar comments in my wordpress blog and on Twitter. I presume it will be closed, since that will obviate the "never published" clause that most poetry magazines have; it's not being published for the public but for work, comment, and to show other poets.
Should anyone read this and be interested that would speed the process. I would have to have at least one and preferably two other people to help moderate, too. For one thing, if I did get too intolerable, they could ask me to turn over the community, and I'd do it without problem. Everything which will be posted is of course copyrighted as is this; it's called Common Law copyright and is quite enforceable. Unless otherwise noted, however, all that means is that attribution has to be made; you can't claim it as your own, and you have to acknowledge the "name" of whomever wrote it. If more than about ten words, you generally need permission, legally; however, that part couldn't be enforced as a general rule, as long as it's attributed to the. Someone else making money off of your poetry, however, can be pursued, and you'll get something out of it. At this point I doubt I'd bother. I have a body of work large enough and consistent enough--on the Internet and much more off--that would simply be made more salable.
