Week Seven in Review: Statistics, A Call for Submissions, Competitions, and More!

This was a great week! Let’s take a look at how it unfolded!


We reached 4900 views this week (1,600 visitors) compared to last week’s 4,200 (1,200 visitors)–that means we go 700 views this week from 400 unique visitors. We reached 1,200 likes, compared to last week’s 1,000, which means we’ve had a healthy 200-like week. We had over  350 unique visitors from Google and other search engines alone (and 530 through social media)! Your poems aren’t just reaching WordPress users anymore!


This week,

Ronald E. Shields’ “Father and Son”

Jane Dougherty’s “Into the Bottomless Well of Sleep”

 Linda Imbler’s  “Understood”

Ann Christine Tabaka’sSun Salutation

haullebee’s Sonnet for My Sisters”

And many others sent us submissions to our Monthly Paid Competition

Stay tuned for some great posts coming up next week!


Our Monthly Paid Competition has been getting a lot of attention! We’re excited to have the ability to pay you for your work in a world that seldom can, and we hope this competition drives traffic to our site, thus to our talented submitters’ work! Here’s more information on it.


In case you missed it last week: We send our deepest gratitude to our donators–you keep the future of Vita Brevis and its poets bright! Thanks to your donations not only are we able to host a paid poetry competition but were able to buy our own domain and integrate WordAds on our site. Now, by simply visiting our site and interacting with ads, you are “donating” to our magazine! This is just one more way that we can support the poetic community and keep improving our magazine!

We’re so honored that the WordPress community has been so supportive of us! We never thought a poetry magazine would take off–there are just so many on the market–but we tried to be different: personable, passionate, accessible, but publishing only the best work we could find. Thank you all so much!

“Ars longa, vita brevis" (art is long, life is short). This maxim so moved us that it seemed only right to title our online poetry magazine after it. It may seem curious that we chose Vita Brevis (life is short) as our title instead of Ars Longa (art is long). But this choice was more than appropriate; after all, the aim of our journal is to publish work that shows a keen awareness of not only art’s beauty and immortality but life’s toils and finiteness. We want to revive and nourish the rich existential literature that forms when art and the human endeavor collide.

  1. I enjoy seeing the weekly stats, and always pleased for the Vita Brevis Team at your continued growth and success. a double bonus for both readers and poets who have submitted works.
