Carpe Diem Extra #6-2014
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Good day ... recently I have got some signals from our family-members of Carpe Diem that we are loosing a few of our contributors, because of the lenght of the posts and the complexness of our latest prompts. This makes me a bit sad, but at the other hand I see also new contributors and that makes me happy of course.
Therefore I love to ask you all, my dear haijin, visitors and travelers, the next questions:
"What can we/I do to make Carpe Diem Haiku Kai better than it already is?"
"Do I have to make rules and regulations for our Ghost-Writer feature?"
"How can we/I change the fact that there are regular contributors leaving or less active here at our Haiku Kai?"
Just a few questions which came in mind as I read the concerns out spoken by haiku-family-members. Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is OUR place for writing, sharing and introducing haiku to the world and I think it has become a great way to promote haiku. I know it's a lot of work, and I think that our ghost-writers have experienced that too, to make Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, but that's no problem for me. I love haiku and I love to bring haiku to a bigger public and I think I have succeeded in that.
Do you have ideas to make Carpe Diem Haiku Kai more alive and kicking as it already is? Please let me know.

PS.: I have changed the way for the Ghost-Writer feature. There will not be a Ghost-Writer week anymore, because I think it's better to have e.g. every Tuesday a Ghost-Writer post. So the Ghost-Writers have more time to create their posts. I haven't yet decided which day of the week will be Ghost-Writer day, but if you would like to be a ghost-writer, please let me know. If you will be a ghost-writer than you can email your ghost-writer posts for the next month before June 1st.
You can send your ghost-writer post to:
email@example.com or to:
firstname.lastname@example.org !!! new email-adress !!!
