      I imported the photo by formatting (when you are editing  your.comment it's below right of the comments box.), then click add photo and choose your option. Just like adding a photo to your hub.

    Epi, this is just awesome! Congratulations to such a prolific writer and fantastic poet. I love your poem "This Man". It made me reflect on some important issues in my life. Thank you for all your poems. smile

    I'm always the last person to notice anything. Who is Epigramman? Actually just found him - http://epigramman.hubpages.com/ - off to read to see what all the hype is.

  12. IzzyM profile image88
    IzzyMposted 6 years ago

    Actually, just looked at his recent hubs and see that he is a poet.

    Just think, If I had divided my last 2 hubs into poems of his hub length, I would now have another 600 hubs, or more. I never was good at math!

    My last two hubs were almost 3,000 words apiece.

    Just goes to show, words mean nothing.

    1. FloraBreenRobison profile image57

      Izzy -
      Epi/Colin is one of those people who not only write poems, he goes out of his way to advertise other people's hubs on his facebook page. An epigram is a short poem by definition so none of them will be long.

      For people who aren't poets, there is no big deal. But for those of us who are poets, it is.
      One thing though: Poems get a flurry of activity the fist couple of days it is published. Then it plummets. You do not get any repeat viewings on poems. Praise from others is all you are ever going to get because no one comes to poetry to click on any ads. That was true before Panda as after. So don't let this thread bother you Isobelle.

      I do not know whether he will even see the thread as he tends to stay away from forums.

      As for me, I tend to get excited when everyone hits milestones no matter what type of writing they do. I go slightly overboard. silly? Yes indeed. But it warms my heart.

      1. IzzyM profile image88
        IzzyMposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        I have always said, though maybe not for a long time, that if poets want their poems viewed by the people who use the world wide wide web, that they have to title then as such.

        "A Poem - Begone Good Sir"

        or

        "A poem - Around the Deep Waters"

        Obviously, no-one searches for those exact terms, but putting 'poem' in the title helps.

        Not being a poet, I respect those who are, but at the same time if you want your poems to be found on the WWW, you have to title them in a search friendly way, just like the rest of us who write about factual things.

          FloraBreenRobisonposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          okay, Izzy. I think Colin sees it as a hobby, though. He has some kind of graveyard shift job so he doesn't worry about marketing.

            Oh OK smile

            Hobbies are good, right?

              Phyllis Doyleposted 6 years agoin reply to this

              Also, when we write poems, us poets use tags like poem, poetry, romantic poetry, lyrical poetry, etc.  So that helps to pull in readers who are looking for poems.  smile

                Excellent! You do know that titles are more powerful?

                  Phyllis Doyleposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                  Titles are very important. BTW I do not recall reading any of your hubs. What kind of titles do you use?

                  It really does not matter right now though, for this forum thread is all about Epi and his achievements, not you or me. smile

                  FloraBreenRobisonposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                  sure. My acrostic poems have quite strong titles and they do get some repeat traffic. They are all about biographies of artists/famous titles so they do have a lot of info. But they always get *less* traffic than my articles.

                  1. Phyllis Doyle profile image96
                    Phyllis Doyleposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                    I like your titles and hubs, Flora.  I was responding to Izzy and trying to figure out how we are stuck on titles rather than the purpose of your forum. smile

                    It would be interesting to start a forum on titles and how important they are in regards to traffic. I have been pondering on this myself for the last few days.  Epi's title of one of his poems, "This Man", drew my attention immediately because it made me think it would be a poem about a man who has a message for someone or struggles in life. After reading the poem, I can tell, as Epi says, that the poem, like most of his, is open to interpretation of the reader -- which I think is great.

    ..and here is the man himself - lol lol lol
    ...let's face it - good writing is good writing - whether it's 10 lines or 100 lines  and like Duke Elllington once said why categorize music at all - good music is good music - I purposely don't group or categorize my writing into specific genres - otherwise that would spoil the surprise of what is to follow - lol
    thank you to one of my biggest fans and hub buddies Flora for starting this lovely surprise (her mum too) and thank you everyone else for joining in and making this truly a highlight of a lifetime - not everyone gets to reach these kind of numbers and a lot of that has to do with my friends, fans, followers, and colleagues here at the Hub. lake erie time 7:29pm
