“celebrating the poems of web-active poets”?

Thoughts following yesterday’s post on poets & their web presence and its interesting comment stream:

We all make choices about how we want to embrace (or not) technology and social media, and there is good and honest reasoning behind almost every position. I think Whale Sound has not yet thought through exactly and honestly where *its* position is in that regard. But things are becoming clearer.

The Whale Sound motif is currently “celebrating your poems.” Given everything discussed in the earlier post, especially the essential ‘webness’ of Whale Sound and general workload issues, am now wondering whether that should not morph into “celebrating the poems of web-active poets”, or something along those lines. A motif that clearly puts Whale Sound in a specific place with regard to both solicitations and submissions.

    I don’t think you should change the name. it is a great name. Maybe you would use that as a sub header if you wish to promote the intention of the audio.

  2. Yes, yes – that’s the idea. The sub-header right now just says ‘celebrating your poems’ and am wondering if that should change.

  3. I think that this is a sensible limitation for your site. I like the logic of it–a website that celebrates the work of poets who clearly value the influence of the web and who themselves capitalize on it.

  4. I love the way you put it, Diane! Yes, exactly that!
