Are you a poet? Do you love sharing beautiful stories in poetic forms? If yes, then this contest is for you!

As part of our website’s monthly contests, D’LitReview is calling for entries into her February Poetry Contest, with the theme, “Of Love and Golden Memories“.

February is a month centered around the celebration of love, owing to Valentine’s Day. Apart from that, one of the greatest languages we speak as humans, is Love.

Tell us your love story, the one that gives you golden memories. It could be the love of a mother and child, a love interest you once had / still have, the love you have for your friends, your siblings, your family, or even the love of God, which is the ultimate love.

We want to see stories that inspire, and above all, help us understand the meaning of love all the more.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

      I suggest you back up your files regularly. You can do that through your file manager on cpanel. That way, even if it gets hacked or something, you can easily recover the backup file.
