First off, I'd like to welcome Natasha from Learning Wicca and Bones from Diary of Bones to the staff here at Pagan Pages Blog Hop! They've stepped forward and volunteered to help me out running things here, and I am SO grateful! If you haven't checked out they're blogs yet, you certainly should! Please help me show them some blogger love and support!
And because I was MIA for December, I'm gonna bend the rules just a tiny bit and allow posts from December in the January linky lists! So for January only, you can link up any post from December as well. The PPBH is here to help you promote your writing, so I want to be sure you can share all of it! Can't wait to see what we missed out on in December!
But I'm still looking for guest bloggers! If you'd like to promote your blog, have a special post you'd like to share, or would just like to help us out; please email me! I would love to have you guest blog for us!
If you haven't had a chance to check out our Facebook page yet, please do so! I'm truly going to try and start being more active there. I truly want this to become more of a community, and this is the best start I can come up with! If you have an idea on how to expand our community, please feel free to email me and let me know. This IS a community already, I'm just looking to build it!
One more thing, as this is a new calendar year, I'd like to make sure we start off on the right foot! Please take a minute and review the Blog Directory. If you've linked up to the PPBH before January (as I update the list at the end of the month), and you don't see your blog listed, please shoot me an email. If you do find your blog, but the link is broken or incorrect, please let me know via email. Thanks!
With that, I give you the monthly reminders:
- Check out the menu bar for blog entry categories.
- Please show your fellow bloggers some love and visit their posts as well! Leaving a comment would be even better! And please mention that you found them at the PPBH!
- Click on the 'About' tab to read a little more on how the hop works and descriptions of our categories.
- Also please checkout the 'Guidelines' tab to review posting and "Brilliant Blogger" guidelines.
- Remember to always use post specific links when linking up. The only time you should link up a general link to your blog is in the 'New to PPBH' category.
Announcing our Brilliant Blogger for the month of November 2012! Thank you so very much for supporting the PPBH, and for sharing your great blog with all of us!
Brilliant Blogger Award Winner For November:
Blog: Learning Wicca
My name is Natasha although most call me Whisper. Even my fiance does at times. I am a work from home mom of two and a very loving fur baby. I have only recently started my journey down the pagan path. I love sharing my journey of learning through my blog and love learning from others as well.
What drove you to starting your own blog? - I was some what saddened by the information out there regarding the pagan community. Most of what is on the web is very far from the truth or very hard to find. I started my blog as a collecting ground for pagans and wiccans who truly want to learn more about the subject. I blog about spells, tips, holidays, and other things I pick up and have found helpful to myself.
What is it that you like to blog most about? - For the most part, just general wiccan goodness. I love learning new things and sharing them with others. My current project is actually making my loving fiance suffer through random recipes. Those that get voted repeat worth then go on the blog as part of Kitchen Concoctions.
Anything else you'd like to add? - I would like to take this time to give kudos to Kourtney. Running your own blog is time consuming and hard work. But on top of that running a community for other bloggers to be a part of is 100x more work. Most of us never see the amazing amounts of work that she puts into the PPBH. I've seen many sites like PPBH die out too soon, but Kourtney has been the life force that keeps the PPBH up and running. So thank you Kourtney for being an amazing person and creating a home and community for us. I look forward to 2013 and watching the PPBH take off and reach new levels of awesomeness!
Thank you Whisper for your kind words! They mean the world to me! Thank you for being such an amazing contributor to the Pagan Pages Blog Hop!
