Grow Your Blog… One Seed at a Time

Greetings, my Wicked Luvs. To everyone visiting via 2 Bags Full, welcome to “the place where I share some of my dark fiction, and where 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 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, enjoy fiction, love celebrating the good things in life—and glaring at the not so awesome ones—then you’ll probably like Pagan Culture.”

I blog about living life to its fullest and surfing the imagination, even if things get a bit foolish
…about forgetting everything, but stories, when the mind is encircled by the miracle of books…
…about smiling at frogs, playing with hammers, growing green things, and loving funky socks…
…about watching Nature remind man that without her gifts, we would be less than nothing.
I also blog about the most important people in my life…
…especially, about the Piano Man who loves kissing me and whom I love kissing back.
I blog about writing, reading and dreaming dark fiction; I share the worlds I create
http://www.magalyguerrero.com/p/thorn-in-red.html http://www.magalyguerrero.com/p/almamia-cienfuegos.html
…I also write about adventures brought to life by the craftiness of other people’s muses…
http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ocean-at-end-of-lane.html
…and my favorite posts celebrate the power of smiling with our entire faces and doing it often. I blog about it because if I dont, I would stop being Magaly Guerrero: Happy, Witchy, Writer.
You can read more about me
here and in my writings.
If you like the words, read on… and enjoy.

    2. I was thinking of you and how is your life there all these days I was away from blogging. :) I am glad I am slowly getting back to my witchy side (which I don't show to all, hehe) and your always interesting blog posts.

      P.S. By the way I was translating one text today, from English, and the author made a mistake in one sentence - wrote "witch" instead of "which"... I smiled at it :)

  4. The key is not what you write about but how you write... You are so carefree in your descriptions, emotions of what you write about... You write with sheer abandonment, yet there is some child-like innocence.. You find humor and aren't always dark... Best of all you don't apologize the way some other bloggers do... What I like about your writings is that you draw me in and just when I think I have figured out something, than WHAM! u give it a twist! lol...

    I'm partying too but I'm doing everything a little slower lately, like rheumatism has taken over my body. My own post for this party is on the small and short side, and I've just started to make my rounds.

  42. Hi Magaly,

    Do you still remember me -- Birgit from Germany? Our paths have crossed in the past -- and you have been incredibly kind and sweet and supportive. :) That's what attracts me most to your blog -- the way you talk about so many different things in an outspoken, yet respectful way. Way to go for sure!

    Light always,
