Do you like poetry? tinywords publishes one new tiny poem per day.

Sometimes it’s a haiku, sometimes it’s just a short, micro poem. It almost always fits into a single Twitter update or SMS message (very occasionally it takes 2 text messages), so you can subscribe with your phone too.

There’s no charge. There are no ads. No salesman will call. We’re just doing this for the love of the poetry. Honest.

    Your response too someone so, so cranky seemed very measured and sane. Good for you!

    I just got a SMS notification via Facebook with a haiku poem, and I'm very upset about it. It was two texts, and completely unsolicited. I definitely did not sign up for it, and I resent getting text messages promoting your site. However this happened, I suspect it's on your end. Please fix it!

  3. Dylan Tweney Says:

    Please accept my apologies! Probably what happened is that someone who used to have your phone number used it to sign up for my mailing list over a year ago.

    Please let me know via email ( what your phone number is and I'll remove it immediately. If you're not comfortable giving me the whole number, give me the last 6 or 7 digits and I'll see if I can find it in my mailing list that way.

  4. Dylan Tweney Says:

    Thanks Patricia. I try to be very responsive to complaints about unwanted messages — esp on people's phones!

    I've duplicated my subscription for tinywords by mistake via "poems". How can I fix the problem so that I'll get each poem only once, via "tinywords"? I'm sorry for the stupid question:).

    Not a stupid question at all. What you've done is log in to tinywords' web publishing system, which also sends out emails. I'll unsubscribe you from the web side of things.

    Um, I was just going to comment on the rain – I was hniopg those rascals would be back in class, writing obediently. It’s not you. It’s June. They’re burnt out.Be brave my friend. Summer comes to us all….

  29. Anilton Says:

    I really enyoejd this entire presentation, so thank you both very much!However, what really struck me the most was Sharla’s comment regarding service people feeling too salesy, yet to our potential clients we really aren’t. (She had given the baby book example).Thank you very much for that! Something that is so common sensical, but you’re absolutely right we easily overlook it depending on which side of the sales we’re on!Ann-Michele Timmerman

    Great stuff, thanks

  33. Bulldog Puppies Says:

    I think your comments are better than your article. Good Effort though.

  34. Daily unblocked Says:

    The work that you are doing, as well as the example that Chris is setting, are both instructive. For Chris I would add that my own experience as a VP has been strategic and measured in my efforts to push in thie area of SM and have always tempered by the level of comfort of the Principals I've worked alongside, ultimately they (and you my friend) have the ultimate word. In the end, being a VP is like driving your dad's car…

    Very nice write-up. I absolutely love this site. Keep it up!

  38. Hermelinda Says:

    I think everything posted made a great deal of sense.

    But, think on this, what if you were to create a awesome headline?

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, however what if you added a post

    title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean tinywords:

    Subscriptions is a little plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they

    create news headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab

    people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring

    your posts a little livelier.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea

    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
