    Those are a lot of awesome bloggers. I’m glad you got such a response!
    I have a cool idea for this series! (But it’s just an idea, you can choose to do whatever you like with it)
    What if you used songs for some of them? Because those are poetry too. Just a thought.

    That’s actually an amazing idea! But I don’t know how to analyse songs, like in musical terms😅

    Hello D! Sorry to bother you but how do you have a different user name for your book blog?

  9. I created a new account with a new email address. So an account each, for one email id. So right now, I have two accounts both under different email addresses and two accounts respectively.
    Hope that made it clear.
    And it wasn’t a bother at all, Sarah!

  13. Log out and then create a new account in WordPress using a new email id. And then just switch between accounts depending on the one you need. Send me a message via my contact form and I’ll try and explain in a more detailed way😂
