I'm New; Blog, Journal?; a little history of myself
« on: June 15, 2019, 07:46:40 pm »
Hello,

I'm new. I tried to join other forums but for some reason the "robot/human" verifications never worked correctly. So I'm here. :)

I'm 35 and I live in USA. I'm interested in Wicca, Witchcraft and Magic. I've been collecting books and reading as much as I can about it. I come out of Christianity about 3 years ago. I've had a bit of trouble finding people to talk with and all, about Wicca, Witchcraft and Magic.

I've only performed a few 'spells', but got great and quick results. I'm very interested in Protection and Healing, and I find that I'm attracted toward essential oils, incense, candles, and Tarot, though I've got sooo much more to learn before I go anywhere with any of this. I'm also very interested in Chakras, Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation.

I'm all alone. I practice alone, except when I talk with a very select few Witchy friends online. We've shared spells and helped each other out a bit... I had a friend who made me a smudge stick and I used essential oils and attempted to create a "prosperity" oil, which really seriously seems to have worked. I sent it to my friend and she used it and was able to buy a brand new house. :)

As far as I know from what I've studied so far, I believe I'm on the path of Solitary Eclectic.

Is there any place on this forum where we can keep a blog or journal? I'm interested in keeping one here if it's available.

I look forward to meeting some of you on here. I'm excited but kinda nervous. I'm sorta going into this a little ignorant and blind, but I'm very willing to learn.

Thank you for reading this. Have a good evening.

Hello,

I'm new.

Hi, and welcome.

I'm certain there is indeed a section of the site where a blog can be kept, but I found a while ago and can't remember exactly where it is right at this moment.  I'll try to refresh my memory and come back to let you know where to find this feature (assuming no-one else beats me to it, that is).

Talk to you soon  :)

Actually, I'm going to have to admit defeat here - been clicking around but can't seem to find one, and it's possible I'm thinking of another forum   :-[

Aww it's okay. Thank you for looking into it for me. :)  Maybe if they don't have one, they may one day create one. :D I'll definitely be using it if they do.

Thanks!

Randall, our esteemed host, has been making some updates to the site - I don't think blogs are part of that, however. (Some other ways to share information - i.e. SIG groups - are in the works though!)

If you're interested in options for where to have a blog, start a thread (the computers and gadgets forum probably makes the most sense) with what you're hoping for (i.e. do you care about having some posts public and some private, do you want to share images or other embedded media, etc...) and I'm sure people will have suggestions.

We do have a thread where people who blog elsewhere can share a link ("Recently Blogged" in the social discussions forum - the link will take you there). As the first post there says, a brief summary is helpful, and a content note for sensitive or upsetting topics is appreciated.

Hello! I'm new to this forum as well, not to Wicca or witchcraft. I journal with pen and paper, but also have a running Book of Shadows and Grimoire through documents on Google Drive. This works best for me because I can continue growing knowledge and information, link back to sources, and it is also available to me where ever the internet is available.
