Yesterday I invited you to follow my Twitter stream. I like to tweet at least two great articles per day relating to art or magic.
But the reality is that I tweet almost exclusively about art.
Why? Magic is an amazing art, and it should make for equally amazing blogs, journals, and essays. You’d think there’d be a million top-notch magic blogs out there. But honestly? There’s not.
Most magic blogs suffer from one of three failures:
1:/ They suck.
2:/ The design sucks. Pixilated pentagram gifs and a layout that screams Geocities circa 1999 somehow fail to impress.
3:/ They are deeply embedded in a neopagan worldview and have limited appeal for those of us who aren’t pagans.
That’s not to say there aren’t exceptions. I’m a fan of the Sassy Sibyl. It’s not technically a magic blog, but as a tarot reader her articles are relevant and she has a penchant for writing inspiring stuff. I also enjoy dispatches from Jason Miller over at Strategic Sorcery. He definitely knows how to craft a spell. And you’ll find some well researched pieces at New World Witchery.
But other than that I’ve had a tough time finding quality blogs or websites about magic.
Do you know of a magic blog that’s worth reading? Don’t be a stranger. Please, leave a comment and clue me in.
