I’m in the process of rethinking this blog and asking myself some damned searching questions. What is it all for? Why do I do it? Where is it going? And most importantly of all, what do readers want?
I’m not expecting to get a flood of responses to this but I’m going to ask you anyway: what do you want to read about? What do you like about this blog? What annoys you? (This is not McDonald’s so I can’t promise to increase one and get rid of the other but it’s interesting to find out.) Are you engaged with the political posts or do you prefer a nice TV review? Would you like to know more about my writing processes? (me too; wish I could understand them.) Do book reviews float your boat? Or reminiscences about my past life? Or maybe you’d like me to challenge myself by writing about something completely different.
You may not have any thoughts at all about this. Your mind may be a complete blank. But even so just drop me a like or an emoji or an ‘it’s all fine.’ I’ll appreciate it.

Think I like all of it. Interesting and thoughtful, without getting too heavy. Sometimes it’s the variety that keeps the interest
I don’t follow many blogs, because I have to be fairly parsimonious with my time, and I like the fact that you don’t tend to specialise in any one particular subject, Sarada, so for me, you can keep doing what you’re doing, and that will be fine! 😀 Cheers, Jon.
Hi Liz – I love all your posts. They are so varied and your sense of humour runs through beautifully. I do like your tv reviews and recommendations! My taste is similar to yours. More and more creatives seem to have patreon accounts – may be worth thinking about.
I don’t think you should consider what readers might want (or prefer) to read. Blog about what interests you, and enjoy your blog for what it is.
Best wishes, Pete.
I write what I want to write. I read more of yours than I comment.
I like book and film reviews, but everyone should write about whatever works for them 🙂 .
