…and then kick it in its weak ribs until it stops twitching.
So, I got an email last night… The message came from an individual who runs a site that collects links that lead to witchy blogs. The person said, “After reviewing your most recent blogs, we decided to remove Pagan Culture from our listing. We understand that blogs grow with the years, and often times the growth includes a deviation from the bloggers’ original intent. We are deleting you because nowadays your blog appears to be more about lifestyle than about Wicca. Brightest Blessings )O(”
My first reaction was, “Come again? Has someone hacked Pagan Culture and blogged about Wicca without my knowledge? I did a bit of back reading—just to make sure, you know?—and nope, no Wiccan hackers lurking around my cyber-cottage; my blog remains mine and my blogging themes remain as eclectic as ever.” The person didn’t care for my humor, and replied… well, I won’t share his/her highly uptight response because it kind of made me want to gag. But I said, “I’m not sure how my blog made it to your listing, for I’ve never heard of—or read—your website. Also, I’m not Wiccan. And as you so perceptively pointed out, Pagan Culture is about the life-style of one Witch—me—not about Wicca or any other specific religion.”
Seriously, my Wicked Darlings, have you read my description of Pagan Culture, located within the About Me page? Here it is:
Pagan Culture is the place where I share some of my dark fiction, and were friends get together to discuss all the wicked fun things that make life worth living. Fine, so we also devour unsavory topics, social—and sometimes rather personal—issues that can make a soul want to smack stupidity on the back of the head and kick it while it twitches on the ground, but we do it all with a gentle grin on our faces… most of the time.
If you take pleasure in the thrills of critical thinking, love soul-loaded fiction, enjoy celebrating the good things in life, and glaring at the not so awesome ones, then you’ll probably like Pagan Culture.
I’m not sure how anyone could take my blogging motifs—or anything about Pagan Culture for that matter—and deduce that I’m Wiccan. Like Robin and I put it, in Witch, Wiccan – Tomato, Potato, “many Nature loving people are similar enough…” in beliefs, but “what brings magic to our world is the fact that most of us enjoy being individuals.”
I, my Wicked Luvs, happen to be Eclectically Witchy to the bone.
But you already knew that, didn’t you? That’s one of the reasons why you joined the circle ;-)
P.S. I refuse to promote ninconpoop(y) behavior (unless it’s seriously funny), so I didn’t add a link to the website in question.
