Deborah Ager Champions The Epistle of Our Age

Blogging has tempted me for over a year now, and always I have resisted. Blogging seemed to me a dangerous use of my writing time-- and, with so may blogs out there, as one poet said to me, dripping with disdain for the whole of the blogosphere, who can possibly be reading them? Well, a year gone by, I have been reading blogs-- and I often revisit the good ones. For example, poet Deborah Ager's "32 Poems," the blog named after the fine poetry journal she edits. In one recent post, she answers the question, Is Writing A Blog Despicable? Just one of the many nudges I got to start this one. Gracias, Deborah.
