As writers (authors, editors, illustrators, readers) it is vital that we support our industry. I know a lot of us take to Twitter and Facebook to talk up our books, but have you considered giving a push to other books and sites? The success of any literary endeavour adds to the health of the industry, but it's human nature to give a push to those things we love. Next time you tweet, FB post or blog about something literary, why not select a site/author/blog/project belonging to someone else and give it a boost? Today I'm tweeting and FB-posting about the Australian Children's Poetry blog run by the diligent Di Bates. Di is working hard to bring Australian children's poetry and poets (and children's poetry in general) some well-deserved limelight. So, if you'd like to check out the state of play (and have some fun) visit http://wwww.australianchildrenspoetry.com.au and leave a comment.

Eating Healthy? never!
Why not? Because "healthy" is an adjective. "Eat" is a verb. Get a grip, people. The adverb form is "healthily" or, if you really can't bear the "ly" word, say "eating healthy food" or "eating a healthy diet".
