Good afternoon, readers! I would like to welcome you to my new blog!
I must admit, beginning this blog has been somewhat of a dilemma for me. I’ve been staring at this page since I signed up for Blogger long ago (mostly to subscribe to others’ blogs). Much like looking at a brand-new notebook, and not wanting to soil it’s pristine pages, I’ve faltered at writing here because I didn’t want to ruin it. It was so perfect just sitting there blank. I know that some other writers will understand, and I am certain that a few would still hold to the idea that I should have left it blank. But they don’t have to read it, do they? That’s the beauty of being a human being with the ability to choose.
As you can see, I’ve made the choice to finally begin something here. My hopes for this blog are to cover topics that are near and dear to my heart. I want to write about my family and life as a wife and mother here; introducing you to my family, and keeping up-to-date with fresh happenings in our lives. I also want to write about my life as a Pagan, how I believe as well as what I believe. And I want to try to do my part to educate anyone that chooses to read this blog about the holidays I follow in my beliefs. Even knowing and fully admitting that views of these things are numerous, and whatever I write will only be the result of my own research and opinion. Lastly, I’d like to try, through blogging as well as any resulting conversations with my readers, to explain witchcraft as I practice it, and hopefully help dispel any misconceptions or stigma that it may have.
So, with all that I wish this blog to be laid out there for everyone to see, I invite you, my readers, to comment on any entry I make here. Let me know what you think about the entry itself – if you catch grammatical errors that really bother you, don’t hesitate to say something! I am not an English scholar, and will appreciate constructive criticisms! I would also love to see comments about what I wrote in a non-grammatical sense as well. Anything that may spark conversation is always welcome, as it’s so much more conducive to learning! And of course, commenting with kudos of some sort is always appreciated! I will, however, reserve the right to nix any comments that are just plain nasty or unacceptable. These don’t help in conversation, and they won’t work here, either.
So, in the words I learned long ago when I first delved into my life as a Pagan – Merry Meet and Merry Part, Until We Merry Meet Again!!
