I’d love your feedback on something. I do hope you’ll express your opinion. Here’s the outline:
Most of the people who follow this blog are here for the poetry. At least, that’s what I believe.
I’m still working on polishing “Breakfast Under the Boddhi Tree”, my forthcoming book about Việt Nam.
The trouble is, I’d usually rather be writing poetry. It’s easier. I’m always inspired. It’s fun to post and then visit other poets’ blogs to see what they’re doing, especially for the dVerse Poets Open Link Night on Tuesdays. The more I read and write poetry, the more I’m inspired to write more poetry.
Once I’ve done this, tweeted a little and taken care of my email, I’ve either run out of time or my eyes start to cross from looking at the screen for too long.
For these reasons, I’m thinking of devoting my blogging time to various topics concerning Việt Nam, at least until I get my book out. I think this will help me to stay in the mindset that I need to be in to work on my book. Blog posts would include reviews of Vietnamese cookbooks and other books, garden and food photos, recipes for food I make at home, tips on growing and using Vietnamese herbs, and short articles about places. And more. When I have time, I’ll still post a poem for Open Link Night.
So here’s what I’d like to know:
Are you here only for poetry? Would you come to read about all things Việt Nam? Should I start a new blog? All comments appreciated.
