Even though you’re reading this on Wednesday, it’s Tuesday as I am putting this together so, first up on the list of things happening at Tell-It-To-The-World is over on Abbie Johnson Taylor’s blog.

The Bedroom #Poetry #Tuesday Tidbit

At three in the morning,

I’m mildly aroused

by the gentle touch of his hand.

He only has one good arm and leg,

still knows how to please me.

As he strokes me,

and I breathe the scent of his sweat,

I purr with anticipation.

But the mood is shattered when he whispers…

52 Reasons to use the Jetpack Toolkit

by Casey

Today I’d like to introduce you to the Jetpack. If you have ever used WordPress.com for your blog, you will have used some of the below features without needing to worry about anything, features such as: emailing your posts, setting up a subscription email form, or creating a contact form. These features are provided to you on WordPress.com. However, if you are on a self-hosted site and using the WordPress.org CMS, then you owe it to yourself to take a look at Jetpack.

Many of Jetpack’s features are free, but if you want better security, spam protection, or the ability to drop in payment buttons, then you will want to consider the paid-for options in Jetpack. Tip: you could also get many of the paid-for options via other WordPress plugins that are not affiliated with Jetpack.

Last, but certainly not least, is the fact that Jetpack is accessible. For me, this means that I can use it with my screen reading technology.

I have listed all the features for Jetpack that I could find below. I have numbered them 1 through 52 and have also provided links to the appropriate information about each feature directly from Jetpack. When you activate one of these links you will be taken to Jetpack in a new browser tab. If you close that tab, you will return to this article. This should help make it easy for you to explore features without losing your place in the article. The below information has been taken directly from Jetpack; I’ve just consolidated it for easy access. If you would like me to take a deeper dive into any of these features, please let me know below the article in the comments. Now, hear are all the major features of the Jetpack!

A lush green forest of bamboo trees features a clear pathway that veers off further into the forest. On the path is a man walking away and he wears a loose shirt and a hat. He is weary but goes on. The title of the book is in red at the top of this picture. On the bottom reads "Poetry by Charles Portolano."

Wild with Life

A collection of Mother Earth poetry

by Charles Portolano

Editor of The Avocet, a Journal of Nature Poetry

Knowing I am wild with life

but once

on this gift we have been given,

this precious gift that we have

been given guardianship of…

“These poems are written by a seasoned poet who has reached the pinnacle of his art with a recognizable and moving voice. The sections of the book invited me instantly in to share their secrets: WHERE TREES RUN WILD, WILD WAYS OF WATER. THE WILD AMONG US, OUR WILDEST TERRAINS, LOVING THE WILD, and SAVING WHAT’S WILD.  The underlying driving force is of course the notion of wildness and all that we have lost by destroying it.

Charles edits the highly-successful nature journal, THE AVOCET, a must for nature loving poets and writers.”- Christine Swanberg, Poet Laureate of Rockford, Il.

“In Wild with Life, Charles Portolano has deepened his engagement with the natural world he began so movingly in his earlier works.  It is a noble, ambitious, and moving work.”- Joel Savishinsky – Charles A. Dana Professor Emeritus in the Social Sciences, Ithaca College

Just $15.00, which includes postage, for 90 pages of pure love for our Mother Earth.
