Sweeten the World with Poetry Words


100 sweet poetry bloggers


Beginning November 1, a group of 100 bloggers (Facebookers, Tweeters) will be sweetening the world with poetry words. It’s simple. Once a month, for six months, they will:

1. share photo poetry quotes, with just 5 friends. Delivery is easy through our new WordCandy poetry-based app, via email, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest

2. post one photo poetry quote, on their blogs or on their Facebook wall. The post will link back to our WordCandy app, so others can also find their way to sweet words. Some bloggers are already using the photo quotes as poetry-writing prompts. Try it?

In exchange for our bloggers’ sweetness, we will be promoting their blogs on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest, and giving them permanent links here at Tweetspeak Poetry.

Right now, we have a few more slots open, if you’re interested in being one of the 100 Sweet Bloggers. Just comment in the comment box to this post, if you’d like to be included in this special project. First-come, first-served. Then, on October 26th, we’ll send you everything you need to get started.

Yes, we’re excited about sweetening the world with poetry words.

If you become part of our sweet poetry effort, consider grabbing one of our Sweet Blogger badges. Sure, we’d ask that you only take a Featured Blogger badge if you actually join the project :)

    I’d enjoy the challenge and fun of this. Can we add in some of our favorite quotes from poems and novels?

    • L. L. Barkat says:

      Someday we hope to offer a pro-level of the app (that would be a paid version), which will give this kind of greater control and options.

      But the free version will always be ready to play with, as it is now :)

    This poet at heart has yearned to share the perspective of silent symphonies this world and life offer simply by existing. This project seems the perfect way to start that and I would love to be a contributor.

  29. Kim Bryan says:

    So glad I had to get up at 3 a.m. to give my dog his second round of antibiotics. Because I couldn’t get back to sleep, found myself in front of the computer, and saw this! Would love to do this, thank you.

    • Dear Kim,
      You seem to be my last reply, so I will share with you one misty, moisty, morning when cloudy was the weather, I chanced to meet an old man clothed all in leather, he begin to compliment and I begin to grin, how do you do, how do you do, how do you do again. To that I will add, I can’t wait to dive in and write and be one of the one-hundred which are chosen.

  30. Betty says:

    I am starting a new blog as a healing thing. I just got broken up with and in my pain I find my creative pot percolating. I really want in on this project. Not only do I feel it will help me but I can inspire others. I don’t want to dwell on the sadness just make art through it.
