i would like to recommend these people's writing, the writing process

Whither poetry blogging?

Derek Motion’s recent posting of the text of his talk about poetry and blogging is a nice consideration of the ways that poets use blogs in their professional capacity as poets.

Derek’s post looks at three different poets’ blogs and the way that they use them – for announcements, for discussions of poetry, to recommend other poets’ work, for personal revelations, and to publish their own work as well – and then considers the merits of each poet’s decision to choose some or all of those functions in their own blogging practises.

It’s a really interesting discussion, and it’s inspired some good comments too. Well worth checking out.
