  3. How many pieces can I post a day?

    We have a unique blog set up which allows for every poet to have a chance to be at the top of the blog list. We want all who post here to have an opportunity to be read and supported equally and we have found that 2-3 posts a day is a fair number to all. 

    **This number may be subject to change, and if you have a special circumstance please email us and we will make exceptions if the cause is worthy.** :D

  4. Can I post date my blog?

    Please do NOT post date your works posted here.  We want everyone to have the chance to be at the top of the blog, and post dated pieces would undermine that goal. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your willingness to help us maintain a blog that is equal to all involved.

    The only time you will see a post dated piece is when we do our challenge link for the day.
