Since this site is called The Quotable Poet the first Best of 2009 posts by Aberjhani that I looked for were his poems. I figured I would do a top 5 lists of poems, top 5 stories, top articles, blogs… you get the picture. Then I went back to his main sites and saw that he hasn’t posted half as much poetry this year as he did all the years from 2004 to 2008. This year it’s been mostly articles and I did come across a few bulletin posts where he said his main focus right now is on citizen journalism and blogging. How strange is that for somebody who’s already published an encyclopedia on the Harlem Renaissance, a novel, a memoir, and 4 books of poetry? I’m thinking maybe not so strange because exploring new literary territories is part of his overall writing pattern. So what we’re doing here is are three lists, one for the poetry from this year I could find, another for articles, and the third for blogs. And since we’ve still got 2 whole months to go, there could be some changes here by the time we hit 2010. That works for me, hope it works for you.
