Please, don’t unsubscribe – This won’t happen again!
I know, if you’re one of my email subscribers, your inbox is full of back-dated haiku posts from my blog – I am so sorry about this! If I knew of a way to stop posts from going out to my subscribers, I’d keep these from junking up your inbox. Alas, I can’t find any way to do that. Please forgive me, and believe me when I say this won’t happen again!
A couple of years ago, I followed the lead of my friend James and started using haiku to constrain my Facebook status updates. There are some status updates that require more expository sentences, but I try to stick to haiku whenever possible. I’ve been posting some of these haiku here to my previously static My Year in Haiku page, but I’ve learned enough about WordPress to know there’s a better way to manage them. I’m transforming that static page into another form, one that requires each haiku to be published in its own post. This will make it much easier for me to format and edit each haiku, but it requires individual posts. I’ve kept all of 2011 and 2012 together in a single post, but I’m publishing the 2013 haiku as individual posts.
Going forward, I promise no more than one haiku-related post per day! Please use your delete key on all those posts in your inbox today, and feel free to vent in the comments below. Of course, you can also unsubscribe yourself, but I hope you’ll stick it out.
