The Last Post

It seems like a long time since I started this blog five years ago. The first post was published on January 15, 2015, which seems like an awfully long time ago. Over time, people started reading and liking the posts, and I want to thank you all for your support and input over the years.

After five years of writing more or less weekly, I want to go back to long-form formats like books, that will allow me to explore topics more fully. I have several ideas for books, including an ebook on Aeracura, an updated version of The Sun Goddess, and maybe something on the Irish goddess Boand.

I will be leaving this site as it is for now, so don’t worry that it will disappear or that your links will be useless. Thank you all again for reading and commenting – I’ve learned so much from your comments and questions, and been led to investigate things I never thought of.

So stay safe everyone, and thank you for reading my blog!

When you live in the north, these things happen.

No internet or phone, so I won’t be posting this week. Living in a remote place has these challenges from time to time.

On vacation – back in two weeks!

Leena Naidoo interviewed me for her blog, the InBetweener:

150 000 views!

and it only took me three years… seriously, I’ve been blogging since Jan. 2015, and in that time I’ve gone from 30 views in my first month to 8 159 this January. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and here’s hoping you’ll continue to find something here to interest you.

It isn’t Christmas without Mummers!

New Look

If you have visited this blog before, you will notice that the look has changed a lot. I decided that it needed more white space and a lighter look overall. I hope that you’ll like it. My only concern with the new theme, Twenty-Twelve, is that some of the text is in very small print. If this is a problem, let me know and I’ll figure out a fix.
