What Is This Hot Mess? – Witch in the 'Burbs

What Is This Hot Mess?

In case you’re wondering, this hot mess has a purpose.

I started this blog way back in the late 1990’s with the intent to share my spiritual beliefs and the way I did things as a Witch. But then certain web services (ahem! Geocities) died and took a lot of great blog/website communities with it.

Then I restarted the blog in 2007, but did nothing with it. It just sat and gathered cyber-dust. And then in 2014, I tried again with WitchInTheBurbs.com. It’s been a bit more successful, outside of the fact that I’m a huge procrastinator and have to force myself to work on regularly posting. (I post weekly now, by the way, and I’ve set up a schedule to remind me to work on it – no more missing a week!)

What is so special about Witch in the ‘Burbs? Why does this blog even exist? What’s the purpose?

I’m a fan of the occult.

I like to study it in all its forms and apply various experiments to my life. Part of it is spiritual, sure, but because that part is so personal, I tend to shy away from telling folks how to behave or how they need to change. Instead, I do my experiments and share them – and I do it because I have this weird urge just to see what the fuck is going to happen. And here is where I share those magical experiments, the results I get from them. And hopefully, if all goes well, you can follow along and try it out yourself, getting the same or similar results.

Who do I blog for?

I blog for the people who are fans of the occult and can’t go a day without learning something new about it, always seeking more information and know-how. I blog for the people who like to meddle in forces unknown and feel the ebbs and flows of nature’s tides of power. I blog for the people who want to cavort with spirits and touch the murky depths of the Otherness.

Shall we?

Come trod the Starry Road with me.
