Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Recently I read a comment on one of the posts here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and (not that it worries me), but I think it's good to respond on that comment here in an extra post.
This extra episode I titled "Making the CDHK family bonds stronger" and in this title the reason for this extra post is hidden.
I am grateful that CDHK has become a wonderful and loving community / family of haiku poets all around the globe and I love creating it, but (and I know for sure that I am not the only one) there is more than CDHK alone. Next to creating CDHK I have a busy job and a loving family of myself. But, and I think I don';t talk only for myself, there is not always time enough to make CDHK or even visit all of your wonderful blogs to comment on them and read all your beauties.
Of course I do love to visit you all to read your haiku and tanka, but time is not always on my side.
|Time isn't always at our side|
[...] "I have observed that haijin who are part of CDHK hardly visit the blog of fellow of haijins to comment or even like the works they post on the blogs. This is worrying to me. I know we all do not have time on our hands, but for the sake of fellow feeling,the bonding and love we have found on CDHK, I believe it is only complimentary for us to visit each other more frequently on the blogs.
We may not need validation when we write and post on our blogs but hei if no one reads and comment or critique, how do we grow. [...]
Do you have ideas to make this bonding better? Please share your ideas and thoughts on this with us all here at CDHK in the comment field. We are a warmhearted family and I need you all to make CDHK a better place to share and ... as you know you are all part of CDHK and therefore we make CDHK together.
