Poet domain

I have been doing a little bit of research into domain names with the word poetry in.

While in the UK, poetry.co.uk is a fashion store. Poetry.com is a full-on poetry site. A bit of a lottery in fact. (Still in beta)

It describes itself thusly:

Poetry.com welcomes all amateur poets and wants to encourage your participation in the world's largest and most vibrant poetry community. We have established a system of points and badges which you'll earn for every different type of action you take. For example, you will receive points for each poem you write, each poem you review, etc.

I would be interested to know if you have tried it out. This kind of community works well for fiction writers but for the prickly beast that is the poet?

Have a go and let me know what you think...you may win a free pin.

Oh and btw it is under new management!

  1. When I used poetry.com 8-10 years ago it was a vanity publisher that would offer people who posted their poems on the site a place in a winners anthology if they paid 1000s of pounds to attend the award ceremony. A lot may have changed in the last decade, but I'd still advise caution.
