THE SHORT VERSION: Back in August of 1997, Walt F.J. Goodridge, president of "a company called W" and creator of the website began sending out his Walt's Friday Inspirations™ to a small group of friends family and business partners.

As interest in his unique style of inspiring poetry grew, several people who found themselves on his list suggested that he create a "Poetry niche" in addition to the other niches on the young website.

Sensing a real interest, Walt contacted several of the people who had made similar suggestions and in June of 1998 launched the email listserve and website which is uniting poetry lovers and wordsmiths from around the world,creating friendships and changing lives!

During a phone conversation between Walt and Monica Blache, one of the founding members, the two realized they shared a similar vision for where this thing could go. Moni, who shuns titles and prefers to be called simply "The Really nice person who keeps things running smoothly at the Poets Niche" became the energy which has kept the Poets Niche heading up into the clouds as Walt's responsibilities with the now popular website increased! (See   Who the Heck is Moni? for more!)

Word spread quickly as people realized they were part of something really special which was just getting started! They told friends, and their friends told others and YOU are becoming a part of all the fun!

Come Into Our Whirl includes the inspiring, never-before-revealed chronicle of chance meetings, actual email correspondence, and events which led to the creation of one of the fastest-growing, most unique communities on the Internet!

    Again thanks so much for allowing Eryn's poem to be featured on the Niche. When I first told her of it she was very excited and expressed a form of happiness I hadn't seen in a very long time (from her). Eryn stopped smiling when her father passed away four years ago. We were spared some sadness with the birth of her sister Lyndsey (Lynn was born the day her father was buried). Since then, Eryn has only expressed her feelings to her diary and Lyndsey. She takes the time to teach this little person everything she has inside of her (her kindness and warmth are seen when these two are together). We both have discovered happiness thru a large amount of sadness, and now thanks to you guys I have my daughter back (slowly, but back). Eryn is writing more, and coming out of an extremely hard shell (trying to over come that difficult age where everything is wrong about her). She smiles occasionally (but speaks less). Eryn is a very beautiful and bright young lady whom with the help of people like you is finally seeing what the rest of us have seen for almost 11 years now.

    Thanks to you, Bam-Bam, David, and the other poets for your praise and encouragement. You guys have done more for Eryn than words can ever say.

    Thanks again,
