First of all, thank you so much to all of you who followed and read me throughout the years. I loves exchanging experiences and views with the English speaking pagan community. We can all see that my sharing has become more sparse throughout the years. As time passed and worked took more space in my life, it was challenging to keep writing. I did, but I did most of my writing in French, on my other blogs. Doubling everything in English took a lot of time, I couldn’t allow myself to do it most of the time. Also because I shared more about exploring life and spirituality through cards, which I wasn’t sure would interest people here. The exception was on Instagram, where I wrote in English, because the card community is extremely active there. But I’m not sure how many people here realized (I’m not good on advertising. I posted a few Instagram links, but didn’t want to insist on it too much.)
For the last year, my projects and writings have somehow evolved, matured, gotten more organized. I have certain very specific purposes, certain things I wish to talk about. Certain bridges I wish to build between the French and the English communities. So this summer, I did something that scared me shitless, but which had been growing in my mind for months. I realized the importance that writing and translating has for me, and entered a process of ‘reclaiming’ it. That might sound weird, but certain people like me tend to diminish everything they do. Because it started as a passion, you know, a girl’s hobby. And because it’s the internet, so it must not be that important… I guess that revelation started rising last fall and it grew inside of me through the year, until it culminated this summer. The numerous ideas that I have just kept multiplying and finally exploded into a Big Bang of even more projects. I realized what I want to say and write could actually be a full time job when I count the hours. So, I stated that to myself for a while, and then formed a new vision, a new structure in my mind.
I decided to create a Patreon for that purpose and gave all my projects a new dynamic.
I’m not good at summarizing… So I did post about this in two places directly on the Patreon, in the general presentation and in a separate post. I hope that will be clear for you. If you have any question, just shoot. One of the main thing is: Patreon is gonna help me bring the French and the English closer together. That place will be the center of my news and bigger projects organization. As you must have realized if you’ve been a follower of this blog: it was no longer alive. My wish is to continue sharing in English, but with the smallest loss of energy and focus. With Patreon I plan on writing in English regularly again, because I will be able develop there the bits I was writing on Instagram (main language of my Instagram in English, because I had active French blogs, so I wrote in details there for my community), have a clear view of articles I wrote in French first but could be translated for you, etc. Also, I wish to begin writing new articles on more intimate parts of my practice with the Gods and Spirits, as I used to in the past, thanks to the proximity that Patreon gives (the restricted articles will suit well the tone and content of intimate posts, shared with an involved audience). I’ve always felt open to writing to the English speaking community about those, it will be a pleasure to do so again .Finally, I’m also trying to take back polytheistic services (in small quantity) through the tiers that allow people to get one reading a month.
So, if you’re still interesting in reading and exchanging with me I suggest that you follow me on Patreon (for free) from now on. This will replace this blog (plus it’s greatly accessible to read on one’s phone with the Patreon app). Paying to subscribe as a Patreon would only be needed if :
- you wanted to encourage me in my writing endeavours ;
- you wanted to read deeper personal animist and polytheist content (among other things, listed there) ;
- you wanted to try out live collective reading or deep polytheistic monthly guidance.
Thank you from my heart again for all those years of reading me and exchanging with me. See you soon for those who take the leap, and goodbye to all that chose not to.
