So you want to start a magickal blog. Great! Now the question is where to begin. You might have a lot of great ideas, but you don’t know what to do with them, or maybe no ideas, but a desire to write. A Witch’s Guide to Magickal Blogging is a four part series meant to help you take the steps you need to in order to start writing your magickal blog. I have been blogging for well over 10 years, so it’s definitely something I feel comfortable talking about. In Part 1 you will take the first three steps, finding out who you are as a writer, exploring what you want to write, and deciding where you want to host your blog. Let’s get started …
Step 1: Who Are You?
One thing that will largely influence what your magickal blog is like is who you are. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you younger or older?
- Are you an experienced witch or new to the Craft?
- Do you have a set path or are you finding your way?
Your age means that you will have specific experience that relates to your phase of life. A young witch in college can write study spells, whereas a parent raising magickal children could write about their witchlings. A teenaged college student wouldn’t know about being a magickal parent, nor would the adult with kids know about being a carefree college student, and you know what? That’s a good thing! Your life experiences inform your magick which, in turn, guides your witchy writing.
