I would like to thank everyone who reads Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY, and all the poets who’ve sent their work to me over the years (from the quarterly ezine begun in 2006 to now). I can honestly say that the quality of work I receive on a daily basis is what keeps me going. The stats for 2022 exceeded 2021 (and every other prior year):
- Total views: 57,447 (average ~5000 per month)
- Total visitors: 23, 307 (average ~2000 per month)
- Likes: 2564 (twice as many as 2021)
- Comments: 414
Right now I am on hiatus from reading submissions until February 1, 2023. During this time, I will be working on a new theme/interface for the site that will hopefully make it easier to maintain. I’ve already upgraded my website plan in order to make room for more photos (for the Saturday book feature) and to automate backups. I’m hoping this process goes smoothly, but you know how much fun “upgrading” tech can be. Wish me luck!
This year I will continue to post poems from the defunct quarterly archives as well as poems from the daily archives every Sunday. Each Saturday will feature a book and poem from a past contributor. I expect to go on hiatus once in a while, but rest assured that your spectacular poems and our community of poetry aficionados will keep Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY going for many years to come.
