Prompts for Weekly Parenting Poetry Workshop — Week 5: Enjoy


Weekly Parenting Poetry WorkshopToday marks the start of the fifth and final week of the Weekly Parenting Poetry Workshop! One last week of prompts to inspire your poetry.

We're each writing at least one parenting-themed poem a week on an overarching parenting theme, which I post on Mondays. On Fridays, I post a linkup so we can all share what we've been working on, and then we enjoy reading each other's work. It's been inspiring for all of us!

I also post daily prompts for the week in advance, both to give you more of an idea of what the theme represents, and for any overachievers who want to write more than one poem a week! Remember, anyone who writes and posts a poem for each day of the challenge automatically wins a signed prize copy of Poetry of a Hobo Mama, and anyone who writes and posts at least weekly will be entered into a drawing for one.

For full details and to grab a badge, see the intro post.

You can enjoy last week's poems here and link up your own if you haven't already! It was a beautiful week of poems on Trust.

Now it's time to get writing for this week! Ready?

The fifth week's theme is

The most important tasks for bloggers — and what to skip: Survey results


A million two years ago, I sent out a survey asking blog readers what were the most significant elements of blogs they loved to visit, and what was by contrast less important.

I'm not sure why I didn't post the results except that a month later, I had a baby. But other than that.

I got just seventeen responses, so that might have been part of it. But I think the seventeen responses were useful ones, so I'm going to go ahead and post the results now. Here's hoping it helps us all as we prioritize our limited blogging time!

The most important elements, ranked
