I like writing poems and I have loads of them in my diary. But I don't know how and where I can publish them. I would like other mylot friends to share their poems with me. If you have any please send me some. Help me get a website where I can publish them to be viewed by everyone.

Thank you dear for giving me such a good idea. But i don't know how to make a blog. If ever I make one I'm sure you will like to read my poems which are more about love and friendship. chao

I also liked to write poems and I would buy a notebook just for my poems but I don't read them at all once they are written. I write them all in my head and play around with the words and try to rhyme them but there was very little sense in what I was trying to do. Cheers!!

We all are in some way or other a poet. We do imagine our feelings but we do not write them on paper. I too did not read my poems when written but my kids read them and find them interesting and asked me to continue with it. Bye Have a nice day.

In addition to the ideas other posters have given, look at lulu.com. It's a self publishing company where you can do print on demand or ebooks (ebooks cost nothing) and they list them. A lot of people go there to buy small books of various kinds, so if you're poetry is good, you stand a chance of selling some.

Thank you for your kind advice which is very useful to me. I hope to create an ebook as soon as possible. I wish you good luck in your life.

You could also consider publishing them in the creative writing parts of Helium and Associated Content. They'd earn you a few cents there from page views. (And you can also keep them on your own site, provided you don't give exclusive rights to the directories.)
