I have been focusing on catching up with name requests from the Pagan Names page. I am backlogged through May. I have had some trouble with several of the emails I sent out bouncing back to me and without a good email there just isn't a thing I can do to get peoples' names to them. This is especially upsetting because it really is a great deal of work just to get the time alone to meditate. I have a two year old. Going to the bathroom takes negotiation. Meditation (without falling asleep outright) can be tricky. And then to have it all be for nothing because the email bounced is a bit frustrating. So, if you requested a name in April or earlier and you haven't heard from me, send an email to moc.oohay|aidepihctiw#moc.oohay|aidepihctiw and we'll see if you're one of the ones who bounced. And if you're requesting a name, please please make sure you are providing a good email. It's not fair to everyone else that I should spend a bunch of time on folks I can't even reach.
I am actively seeking partners for the Witchipedia. It's just too big a project for one person, don't you agree? I need someone who will take over a whole section of the site, (maybe the Crystals bit, maybe the Roman lore bit, maybe the Tarot bit) and make it their own. This person will learn to create articles with little to no input from me and will post them on at least a weekly basis. This person will also greet new members and chat up the forums and maybe even come up with new ideas that we can implement together to make Witchipedia even more awesome. Is it you? Contact me at moc.oohay|aidepihctiw#moc.oohay|aidepihctiw
Remember, the Witchipedia was always meant to be a group project and anyone with the will and desire is more than welcome to post and edit any article they wish. Please read the writers' guidelines to help you on your way and if you have any questions, simply email moc.oohay|aidepihctiw#moc.oohay|aidepihctiw.
Because anyone can contribute to the Witchipedia, there are going to be differences of opinion and flat out false information. If you have something to add or disagree with a statement in an article you have several options.
- You can edit the article itself, bearing in mind the difference between a fact and opinion- facts need to be corrected and opinions should be added to.
- Or you can use the comments feature at the end of each page to put in your two cents
- or you can email moc.oohay|aidepihctiw#moc.oohay|aidepihctiw and ask me to correct the article. I will do so as soon as I get a moment.
Read Along with the Witchipedia
The read-along book for July is Practical Prosperity Magick: Crafting Success & Abundance by Ellen Dugan. It gets some pretty decent reviews on Amazon and I'm excited to see what the community thinks of it. Please join us by checking it out and writing a brief review below OR writing a review on your own blog and linking to it below. If you click on a link here on the Witchipedia and buy this book through Amazon.com, you'll be helping to support the Witchipedia as well as the author but if you'd rather visit your local bookstore to pick it up, I feel you there. How ever you get it, check it out and let us know what you think!!

This Month's Theme
The theme for the month of July is Magickal Skills; those basic techniques that form the craft of the magic-user, underlying the pageantry of ritual. I am resurrecting last year's July theme because I have come to notice a need for those basic articles among our readership. The Magical Skills theme didn't get a lot of action last year, but it's definitely a topic in need of exploration here on Witchipedia. So let's get moving!
