June 2020 Updates And Beast Suggestions

Hello, everyone! I’m doing my updates post a little early because I’ve got a few special posts coming up this month. First up, Red Thread Reblog is back! If you’re not familiar with this feature, Red Thread Reblog reaches out into the blogging community and ties together two posts, one covering media inspired by mythology and one on the mythology behind the media. I won’t give too much away yet, but I will give you one hint: dragons. Continue reading “June 2020 Updates And Beast Suggestions”

March 2020 Updates and Beast Suggestions

Well, it’s been a crazy year so far, and it’s still early. I sincerely hope you are all well and holding up fine under social distancing/quarantine wherever you are. The coronavirus situation is affecting all of us, in ways we may not have expected. In terms of blogging, my biggest hurdle right now is not being able to access physical books from libraries. That’s pretty minor. It might delay a few of my posts, but I’ll continue to share as well as visiting your blogs to enjoy your wit, wisdom, and artwork in the coming months. I know many of you are facing much more frightening situations. Hopefully, the situation will soon begin to improve, although I’m sure it will leave changes in its wake.

So, switching down to site news: It’s getting close to April, which means I’m getting ready for another Quarterly Bestiary! As always, I’m officially inviting you to suggest beasts you’d like covered in the future, though I’ll be happy to consider suggestions made at any time. I’ve also got one more Sunshine post, which will probably come first because I need a something to brighten my blog right now.

Also, you may have noticed a small change in my last post. I include a list of sources at the end of my posts because I want to be transparent about where I’m getting my information. However, I’ve come to realize that long list is a bit of a pain to scroll through on the way to the “like” and “share” buttons, not to mention the comments. With that in mind, I’ve decided to make the sources section collapsible. I’ve seen hints that this feature doesn’t work on all browsers, however, so I want to ask you how your experience of this new feature has been so far. Is it working? Do you like it? Please tell me if you’ve had any technical difficulties or have any opinions about it so that I can continue to improve!

Hello, 2020! The New Year has arrived. What new projects are you planning? Now, I know you can start new ventures at any time during the year. In fact, I hope you do. But the start of a new year is great for drumming up motivation to renew and change with the calendar. In that spirit, I’ve got a couple of news items!
