  1. your verse portraits blog is missing. did you back you? some blogger burp or is it taken down?

  2. Ooh, you scared me! No, I renamed it People in Verse. Wanted to get away from the 365 days etc. Thanks for noticing and caring. Because of your comment I had another look and realised I didn't like 'People in Verse' and it should of course be Verse Portraits — which now it is. :)
