Despite the fact that blogs are “written by fools to be read by imbeciles”, as the Wall Street Journal would have us believe, as reported by Ms. Baroque, I can still point all willing imbeciles to three foolish blogs that somehow happen to make excellent reading:
First, it’s good to see that Geoff has a new poetry blog, and that he’s begun with a pretty good poem inspired by something I wrote unwittingly on this blog.
Second, Todd Swift’s Eyewear features Sheffield-based poet, Ben Wilkinson. Well worth taking a look at.
Third, Smoog has started blogging again, and if that wasn’t enough, she’s made the final shortlist for the CBC/Canada Council for the Arts 2006 National Literary Award, one of 31 from an initial 1,100 entries. Good luck, Rachel!
Not bad going. Especially for fools and imbeciles.
