What do I want to say?

It comes down to this. What am I interested in and have the most to learn about? I have followed a witchy path for about 13 years now. I feel I still have loads to learn about the various aspects of Paganism and witchcraft.
Writing would help me understand what I am learning and may also lead me to other interests. As an extra added bonus, as a journalism major, I can use this blog to hone my writing skills. That means it won’t always be pretty, but at least I’m learning and applying what I learn to something that means something to me personally.
I want to write three of four entries each week. I think that should be plenty for now. As I progress, I may write everyday.
I spoke with the online editor at the Denver Post not too long ago and she told me that all of their writers have a blog and she expects them to interact with their blogs at least a half dozen times a day. That means they respond to comments, update their information and write about breaking stories. Wow! But I understand that it is part of their job. This is not a job for me (not yet, anyway), so I probably won’t be interacting that often. If I find that a lot of people are interested in what I have to say, I may change my mind, but I do have other things going on in my life. I have a job and classes at the university that take precedent. Or at least they should. Bills have to be paid, knowledge gained and all that.
So, this will be a witchy blog and I will post my first official entry tomorrow.


Hello world!

The saying goes something like this…”There are only two things that are certain in this world. Death and taxes.” Well, I can agree that death is a certainty for all of us. Taxes? I’m not so sure although avoiding them can lead to some nasty consequences.

I’m not sure what I want this blog to be about. You don’t want to hear about my life, at least not right now. That would be boring. I go to school, study, and work. That’s pretty much it. I’m a journalism student at the University of Wyoming. I was born and raised in Wyoming, although I left right out of high school with no intention of coming back. I left and came back and left and came back and left and came back again. When I’m finished with my degree, I don’t know where I will go. I would like to spend some time in Southeast Asia around India and places like that.

Wyoming is a beautiful place. There is a lot of wide open space around here. Of course what do you expect when there is an average of 4 people per square mile? You definitely don’t have to bump elbows with your neighbors if you don’t want to. Those wide open spaces can be a disadvantage as well. There are long stretches of highway where you don’t have cell service, so be careful if you get stranded. It may be awhile before someone comes to your rescue.

The mountains around here are breathtaking, quite literally. Where I live the elevation is about 7500 feet, so already we are over a mile above sea level. There are peaks all around us that are higher than that. The elevation makes sporting events interesting. At times it even seems to be the deciding factor as players from the other team are sitting on the sidelines sucking wind.

Let me think about this for a day or two. Let me decide what direction I want this blog to go. I have a million ideas, so one of them will have to work.
