I've been in bed most of yesterday and today - where possible, with so many small kids needing to be fed and watered - suffering from a dreadful cold and sore throat that's left me weak and lethargic. I had been intending to post up something on Raw Light this weekend about my recent reading in children's fiction - most notably the new Harry Potter novel - but I find myself too weak to do so with any conviction. So I shall leave that for another day.
I get a large numbers of hits every day to this blog, from all over the world, which is very complimentary and I thank you for your visits. But I do sometimes wonder whether people reading Raw Light come for the poetry or the prose or just the occasional Holland stingers. It's such a mixed bag on Raw Light - which genuinely reflects my own inability to specialise - that I'm not sure sometimes whether I'm getting the balance right in terms of entertaining my readers.
So if you have the energy, do please leave a comment below this post letting me know why you visit Raw Light, if it's helpful to you in any way - as a reader or writer, for instance - and whether you have a marked preference for blog posts about contemporary poetry or reviews or children's fiction or writing techniques etc.
