Hot News: New Milestone, Half a Million Pageviews

My Dear Friends:

Launched on the first day of 2013, NeverEnding Story crossed the 500,000 view mark this morning.

Stats:

Pageviews yesterday: 570
Pageviews last month:19,050

I am grateful for everyone who has been a part of this poetry journey. And look forward to reading your new haiku/tanka (see 2017 anthology submission guidelines for haiku and tanka )

A haiku or a tanka without "rhetoric" was likely to be no more  than a brief observation without poetic tension or illumination.

-- Donald Keene, The Winter Sun Shines in: A Life of Masaoka Shiki, p 57.

Note:  In addition to being translated into Chinese and published on NeverEnding Story, the accepted haiku and tanka will be tweeted and re-tweeted by  @storyhaikutanka (NeverEnding Story's Tweeter account: following: 7, followers: 1,077) and @ericcoliu (Chen-ou Liu's Tweeter account: following: 5, followers: 2,864) respectively to reach a larger readership.
