I gave myself a holiday from blogging several months ago, after blogging non-stop for more than ten years. Boy, was that needed, and was that good. I was completely burnt out, and considering that I already work many hours every week typing emails, Tarot readings and Spellwork reports for my customers, writing posts weekly was more a punishment than a pleasure.
After closing the blog on my main website, I’ve been micro-blogging on my social networks almost daily, posting short updates and pictures of the work I do as someone who strives to live deeply connected with life, to the source of creativity, to the Art of Magic, and to the Magic of Art – magical/spiritual crafts, gardening, wildharvesting, textile arts, herbal recipes for teas/soaps/body care, folklore, historical crafts, magical traditions of the Canary Islands, paganism, self-sufficiency, and very much anything that interests me.
That has proved to be more enjoyable and manageable for me than any formal blogging I had ever done before, and took off the pressure of writing about the magical work I do for my customers, a subject that I’d rather not talk about in any public way any more. I don’t teach, my religion is initiatory and has vows of secrecy, and the privacy of my customers is a total priority for me – the further I go into the path of the Bruja, the less interested I am in talking about it. Not that I have anything against people who share their journey, of course, but it’s not for me. The life and growth of a Spiritual Worker is made of many things, not only of ritual and divination, and I’m perfectly happy sharing all the other things that make me a better Bruja every day – I may not be interested in teaching magic, but I am all for inspiring my readers and customers to live a more magical, empowered life.
But – social media sites have one disadvantage, and it is that posts do not get archived, and are not searchable, so I get a lot of questions about past posts from readers and customers, asking me for this and that – recipes, gardening tips, craft tips, etc. This, as you can imagine, takes a lot of time and effort. That is why I am starting this blog, so I can archive all those posts, and so YOU can find them neatly arranged in categories, and search through them for the content as you please.
This blog is a true account of my life, and not a staged project in any way. I will post the stuff I make as I make it, exactly as I’ve been doing on my social media sites so far, and from time to time I will repost some posts from my old blog that contain useful recipes, as my schedule allows.
