How to get rid of ads

We had to put ads to help cover our growing costs and we hate doing it because ads are gross. If you want to browse Poeticous free of horrible ads, just make a small monthly pledge. Any amount will do and is good karma.

Welcome to Poeticous, a place for poetry and a blogging platform for artists. I'm a software engineer making a living coding somebody else's $#!+ but, when I'm not doing that, I'm usually thinking or working on something that I find important.

Poeticous is where my artistic side meets my lifelong passion for science and engineering. I built it for a couple of reasons: First, I needed a place to hang a few poems I had written and I couldn't find one specifically designed for poetry. Second, as I became more and more interested in poetry, I found myself jumping from place to place looking for poems, recitations, analyses, biographies, and translations, so I thought it would be nice to have it all in one location. A third reason, that emerged and has become the most important, is that I really enjoy doing it.

I also hope that Poeticous is useful to others. It's misteriously comforting to build things that other people use, so this website is yours too. Browse Poeticous to absorb poetry or sign up to post your creations, and don't hesitate to let me know how I can make it better by sending me an email at .
