April may have come and gone, but I’m having too much fun writing a poem a day to stop now! I’m going to move the festivities over to Tumblr, because as a blogging platform Tumblr is both more customizable and more fun. (Easy content-sharing with millions of bloggers at once? Yes please!)
You can check it out at http://caffeinatedandhopeful.tumblr.com. If you have a Tumblr, give me a follow! If not, consider bookmarking the page and checking in on me every once in a while.
This is what a post looks like on WordPress. When you finish writing a post, scroll down a little to “Categories” and file it under your name. This’ll keep our WordPress organized by author. If you want the name displayed as the author on each post to be your real name and not your username, then on the Dashboard, under “Users,” click “My Profile.” Then enter your name next to “Display name publicly as:”.
Important: In order to get
the nice single-spaced lines
so essential for la poesia,
hit “Shift + Enter” at the end of a line
instead of “Enter,” which will insert a double-spaced line like this.

If you want to attract more attention to your post, you can add tags about the content of the post. (So if I write a poem about cardinals, I’d tag it with “nature,” “birds,” “cardinals,” etc.) This will make the post more likely to show up on Google searches and things like that. Totally optional.
If for some reason you need to write posts ahead of time, you can go to “Publish immediately” under “Publish” and hit “Edit” to change it to publish automatically on the next day or whatever.
