Friday Blog Review - Week 40 - JaLpArI - tHe MeRmAiD

Today we will be taking a look at Almas Kiran Shamim’s blog JaLpArI - tHe MeRmAiD.  Almas’ blog has been up since August 2007 and started posting more frequently as time progressed.  The top has different pages to select from, including a Disclaimer that I thought was rather funny, but sincere.  On the right side there is a panel with other blogs that belong to Almas, as well.  For easy navigation, directly under this list of blogs Almas has an archive and list of things she talks about. The colour scheme and visual aspects of the blog do a nice job of being welcoming and encourage the reader to want to stay and look around.  The blog has a nice over all lay out.   

Not every single post on her blog are poems, but the ones that are are very nicely written.  It has been a while since she has gotten a new post on her blog but she is actively participating in Jingle Poetry.  The poem that she submitted to the Poetry Picnic this week happens to be the latest poem she has written and one of the ones I liked best.  The poem is called Nature Speaks...

I hope you enjoyed Almas’ blog as much as  I did and congrats to Almas for five years for your blog.
