See the 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I will now present my latest selection of such poems. CONTINUE READING / CONTINUER LA LECTURE…

Poetry by readers, 3rd set

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Jeunes filles lisant (1890-1891) – Los Angeles County Museum of Art (collections.lacma.org)

This is my third post presenting poems published on WordPress blogs by my readers, in other words users who made themselves known to me by following Agapeta, by liking its posts, or commenting them. Indeed, I always have a look at the blog of anyone who follows Agapeta, likes a post, or writes a comment. CONTINUE READING / CONTINUER LA LECTURE…

What readers are searching for

WordPress blog statistics include “Search Terms”, which mean the terms, words, and phrases entered in a search engine that led readers to the blog. Mostly it indicates “Unknown Search Terms”, which means that WordPress could not determine these terms (for instance, some search engine encrypt them). But sometimes it can discover them, and that can be funny. CONTINUE READING / CONTINUER LA LECTURE…

Last year, in the post Poetry by readers I gave links to poems published on WordPress by four of my readers. Unfortunately, three of them have since deleted their site, and only one poem remains on WordPress: Fleeting Moments by Michael33. However I could recover on a Google cache the text of one poem: I’d Love To Love You by (Anyone you want me to be), so I added it to the post. Also Internet Archive saved a copy of 50 Word Stories: trespassing with velvet by Nina Karadzic. The rest seems lost… CONTINUE READING / CONTINUER LA LECTURE…

A reader’s discovery

In Agapeta I have used three pictures of an Asian girl to illustrate posts (first, second and third); moreover the third one appears in the blog header and is my Gravatar. I had found them on Internet in July 2014 (probably on a Tumblr page), but I did not remember where. Several readers have complimented me on my choice, and even one of them fell in love with her.

One reader held a blog about girls entitled Copine 1 and 2; it consisted mainly of “random posts” giving, after a short introductory text, many photographs of beautiful little girls; in some sense, it was a successful girl fashion magazine (it has been suspended by WordPress). But in a post dated 28 November 2015, he revealed that he found the origin of the pictures and the name of the girl. She is called Mai Vi, she was photographed by Duy Anh Phan (also called Doak Phan), the three photographs can be found (in various sizes) on one of his Flickr pages.

Therefore I award this reader the Agapeta trophy:

Agapeta Equidem Illuminat Omnia Ubique (Agapeta surely illuminates everything everywhere and always)

Following my post Poetry by readers, I will renew my tribute to readers of Agapeta, this time by giving links to some of their articles that I consider remarkable for the beauty of an included image, or for having a link to wonderful images. By reader, I mean here any blogger who follows Agapeta or has clicked “like” on a post or has written a comment after it. Sorry, I cannot present any beautiful work by someone who does not have a blog address. There are also many readers who remain invisible to me, since they do not perform any of the actions (like, comment or follow) that bring them to my notice. CONTINUE READING…

Poetry by readers

This entry does not belong to the blog’s standard topics, it is rather a tribute to its readers. I will give here links to poems published on WordPress blogs by users who made themselves known to me by following Agapeta or by liking or commenting its posts. This should encourage further readers to express their appreciation. Know that I always give a look at the blog of anyone who likes, comments or follows my young bud. CONTINUE READING…
