This writing blog, Raw Light, is SIX YEARS OLD this month!

Amazing to think how many years it's been going strong. Yet I still haven't got bored and stopped posting. That's impressive for me. Looking back at my posting record, there have been a few dry patches here and there, but I always picked up the slack in the end.

So please wish Raw Light a Happy Birthday, and tweet it Happy Birthday too if the spirit moves you to gain me new followers!

In celebration of six successful years of blogging, I'm going to repost some favourite or significant blog posts from each year over the next few weeks. I'll put the original date in brackets alongside the title, and at the top of the post too, so hopefully people will understand it's a repeat.

 Just a trip down memory lane for me, and perhaps for those who have been faithfully following this blog since its first inane flutters of life, back in September 2005.

The tag for old posts will be #RawLightRepeats

Many thanks to ALL my readers, past and present, and to those who are now Following Raw Light.

Couldn't have done it without you! Jane x

Dear Jane

Rusty has now bought, read and reviewed Boudicca & Co on (Might take a little while for the review to appear.) Many Happy Returns by the way and may you keep on going for many moons yet.

Love from Simon & Rusty

Thanks, everyone! It's really sweet of you to have dropped by to say Happy Birthday to Raw Light.

Now I have to decide which old posts to reblog from each year.

Happy Birthday, Raw Light.

Dear Jane

After three long days, your Boudicca & Co review has finally appeared. Amazon's fault, not ours! We hope that this Kindle book is every bit as successful as all your others.

Best wishes from Simon & Rusty
