Dear Poet X: Thank you for your submission to Whale Sound. I’d like very much to read your poem for the site and will begin to work with it soon.
If you are on Facebook, it would be great to have you friend me there — that way I can tag you when your piece is up. I have observed that easily 85 percent of the referral hits received by Whale Sound are from Facebook – either via tagged Facebook posts or via its Networked Blogs application.
If you prefer to limit your Facebook friends, you could also just ‘like’ the Whale Sound Facebook page, since I also tag Whale Sound poets there once their poems are posted.
Of course, you may not be on Facebook at all, in which case, just ignore everything I just said!
