About Poetman
Joined August 2011
I was here originally for about...I'm guessing 11 months? Maybe 13...somewhere between Aug 2010 and sometime 2011...at any rate. I'm drifting. I left because I was not coming to the site enough to justify the $47/month fee, which I very badly needed back then. I was chipping away at some back debt (which I got rid of, btw-w/out a loan! Woot!). Then I had some health complications, my dad died unexpectedly of cancer last May and the rest of 2012 was pretty much shot.

I'm the single dad of two lovely daughters-one almost 25, married and out on her own with 2 (almost 4 and 7 mos), and the other 18 and a junior in high school. Due to various health issues, I work from home as a writer. I also am learning how to bring in money via the net. Perhaps the biggest draw for me to come back was-aside from the great support team-the combination of hosting/websites with Wordpress Express. That site just rocks! Plain WP is just meh.

And of last eyebrow raising point of interest, I'm trans-FTM-and just starting my physical journey next week. Can't wait! So I have seen life from both sides of the gender fence. If I sound sometimes guy view and some with a female voice, that is why.

Glad to be back :)

Hello Poetman! i think I've found my niche! How about women's clothing? I want to focus on plus sizes mostly. I check into www.dmoz.com and it has 6 categories and several related topics! Including weight loss which interest me also! Please help!!

Thanks :) I have a fondness for calioo cats. With her I am kind of repaying a mistake in giving up another calico-beautiful-because my mom insisted, due to the confustion, clutter, general wreck of things when we first moved out. I don't know why I listened to her, I never fully forgave myself. So, when Pandora came to us with her multiple problems I refused to give up-and it paid off. The Humane Society offered to put her down (!) for $77...so we went back home and are happy cats :) Mostly. Not by her anymore though.

Glad I was able to help you out today. :) I do say you have an interesting-looking cat. Looks like two cats in one LOL!

She acts like it too! One minutes very lovey-dovey, the other biting-but never hard. She will get her bi-annual shave down next week, and that will take care of a a few snarls that bother her. Our Himmy will go in as well (same beauty routine) :)

She is a really beautiful cat :)

*smiles ear to ear* Ah, this place is awesome! Oh, Gordi-the cat, is Pandora. Came to us at age 10, terrified to the point of hiding under beds and going outside the box for 2 months-now just pile of sleeping fluff that purrs and talks and *asks* to go to bed. She's great :)

Interesting- which gender is dominant?

Poetman Premium
Visibly-female Internally and as far as I'm concerned-the Who part 1001% male. Though not a masculine, lumberjack type. More the concert/teahouse/poet/plays, bookstore sort of chap :)

Hi David,
Thanks for the follow. Have you always been a poet? I'm sure writing has served you well especially since content is king. :) Good luck and safe travel on your journey and if I may say ,that is a beautiful cat! :)
Reply
Poetman Premium
Thanks!

I discovered the poet side when I had my heart broken. To date I've written somewhere close to 850 of them. My grandfather was novelist/taught Journalism at MSU, great-grandfather was a poet and both my dad and uncle as well.

Pandora is beautiful, I agree :D She's now 10 going on 11 and spends most days sleeping on my desk..:p

Salutations from Michigan!
I just landed here at WA this afternoon, breathless and excited. I wanted to get on sooner but patience is a virtue and I had to wait for funds. However, they turned up on time and now I'm here! *pauses for applause* Hmm..guess I need to earn that! Kidding! At any rate, I'm a writer, first and foremost. My user name is testament to that. I've done all kinds, but poetry remains my strength.

I have dabbled unsuccessfully in IM for several years, in the hope of making an independent financial base for myself and my daughter (almost 17-yikes!), due to medical challenges. I lost money and respect for many programs out there, and resigned to choosing only the free ones-and then (of course) didn't get any free traffic or sales from the free traffic sites (traffic swarm, inet giant, salesspider, etc). So my enthusiasm flattened out. That's where itriedthat found me, and relit my interest. I can do this, I can market articles. I just need to be shown the ropes :)

I plan on staying a long while. I am happy to give advice and always willing to lend an ear or shoulder as needed. So, fellow WA count me among your ranks!

Thanks!
