First, thank you to everyone out there who’s told me an article here really helped them. Thanks to all of you who’ve linked the site or an article, or recommended it to someone. I love getting notes from people, or seeing a reference link come through my statistics dashboard, and realising it’s helped someone.
And thanks to my friends, who put up with me figuring out how to phrase something, and to my various tradmates and witchy students who’ve gotten the earliest iterations of this work out of me.
Most especially, thanks to all the folks at The Cauldron over the years who have asked great questions. I’d guess at least half of the articles here either started as a reply I made there, or were directly inspired by a discussion.
I’m also thinking about the future, so if you have feedback on particularly wanting any of the following, let me know. (Here, or PM, or the contact form on the site all work fine. Note that I don’t generally write about stuff that’s at least not somewhat part of my own practice of witchcraft, so there are things I’m not going to tackle.)
The end of that post also has some notes about my priorities for the moment:
- Filling in gaps in the existing material so that there’s a more cohesive line of things to read in order for specific common questions.
- Continuing to talk about adaptations for practice and learning for different situations, and accessibility options in general.
- Adding more resources (books, podcasts, and other websites that seem likely to remain stable) to the resource section of articles.
And I’m considering how to pull together articles (with some conjoining text) into focus ebooks. Topics I’m particularly thinking about include:
- How to go from “maybe I’m interested in this” to building a plan to learn more about witchcraft/religious witchcraft in a way that works for you, and helps you build a foundation of good resources.
- Developing a daily or regular practice that is flexible enough to adapt your life and changing circumstances.
- How to go about learning more and deepening your practice over time in a way that’s sustainable and works for you (and your brain and life).
- Making your practice accessible and sustainable based on your needs (but understanding what trade-offs you might be making, so you can make decisions about them.)
I’m also open to at least thinking about other things (short focused course on something? Something else?) especially if there’s interest.
Thanks again to everyone who’s gotten me thinking about something (or explaining a something) or otherwise made Seeking better.
