Do you ever wonder what I do for the Poetry Chaikhana besides sending out poetry? The Poetry Chaikhana is actually an extensive network, including the poem emails, a website of rich resources, a blog, a forum, a Facebook page, and now a Twitter page. It’s a lot for one person to manage in his free time (especially when that person tends to be a rather quiet, meditative type).
The main way I coordinate it all is through the custom software I developed several years ago. But that software was becoming increasingly out-of-date and not as efficient as I’d like. This past weekend I just completed a major update that will allow the Poetry Chaikhana to keep serving you its special brand of tea well into the future. You probably won’t immediately notice much change on your end, but I’ll certainly have a more relaxed smile on my face.
…And a reminder that your generous donations are what allow me to do all that work behind the scenes — thank you.
