It’s been a hell of a year for the blog and I.
I graduated from my community college with honors. I applied to real colleges and went on a road trip to see them. In the process I made my first forays into practical divination, exploring the options using Tarot. At the conclusion of which, I pulled a Tower and a Hanged man at the same time, moving from the Westernmost end of Missouri to the Easternmost point of Indiana for said college.
I performed my first wedding and conjured gods I’d never even heard of before. I started my experiments in Western Ceremonial Magic. I did so much magic that I couldn’t even write about it all. I did so much research I don’t even know where to start writing. Even so, I wrote a hundred and one posts in 2011, just over four times the previous two years combined.
My followers have doubled over the last year—many of them people I don’t know in the physical world!—and my hitcount has skyrocketed over the last months in particular. There as that post I pimped out on /r/occult back in September. And participating in Deborah Castellano’s New Year, New You project has definitely gleaned me a few hits. Several times, I’ve actually gotten as may as sixty or seventy hits a day. I have had readers from Russia, the UK, Malaysa, Canada, Germany, Australia … just to name a few.
This is kind of a big deal. Thank you all for being along for the ride. I hope to see more of you all soon.
