A Twitter Poem, A Newsletter, and Other Updates

A Twitter Poem


Dear Readers.

I hope everyone is doing well.

I plan to create a newsletter to help our literary community better understand the role of social media in our creative endeavors. At the same time – depending on what you want to showcase – the newsletter will help you understand what social media platform is best for you, and what strategies you should employ to advance your goals and get your work widely noticed.

To that end:

No anecdotal stories will be used. Data will come strictly from rigorous academic research done in Schools of Communications across the world. That ensures the credibility of the conclusions presented to you.

The newsletter will be published once every two months.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for the newsletter on my blog in February 2022.

First issue will come out in March 2022.

I will provide you with more information at the end of January 2022.

Please do not forget to like and follow the work of our wonderful poets who write for MasticadoresUsa.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. The newsletter will be available for sign up right here on my blog.
      Thank you for the kind words on my poem.

  1. Lovely Poem. I don’t have, and don’t plan on having a twitter account. I’m pretty unsocial. The only social media I have is my blog and a YouTube channel if that’s considered social media.

    1. Good morning Timothy. Thank you for the lovely words.
      Both are considered “social media.” You do not need a twitter account to sing up for the newsletter. The signing up will take place here on my blog and you will receive the newsletter by email every two month.
      And yes, YouTube is today one of the largest platform where artists ( painters, singers, poets, movie makers) showcase their work.

  7. Gabriela, lovely painting…Monet’s work has a softness I like very much. Your poem is beautiful and brilliantly relatable…”When I am not crying myself to death, I pretend you are here.”

    I look forward to reading your newsletter. <3

    1. Good evening Cheryl, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words about my work. I like Monet very much.
      Sending love and hugs. Have a beautiful weekend ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿค—

  8. So glad I found this, your Twitter poem..I might be the last poet who does not have a Twitter account, but social media, in general, I do shy from. I love WordPress because real conversations can and do take place between the reader and the writer.
    I felt your sadness in this one..The winter “blues” lacking the warmth and passion of the orange… The poem hints and even deeper sadness than seasonal…and the expression “cry myself to death” is sadly so relatable to me too.
    Beautiful Gabriela๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐ŸŒนโ˜€๏ธ

    1. Oh, hon, thank you so much for taking the time to read and for your heart touching comment. You are wonderful. I love WP. I also love Twitter. What can I do? Sending plenty of hugs ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒน

    1. Thank you so much Bo. It is so good to hear from you. Love you.

      I am trying to get to your site and I cannot. I will try Eric’s to see if I can get to you via his site.

      Bo, it’s been I while since I had any news from you. I am a little worried.
