  1. I personally enjoy them. Those people know they can just...you'know...NOT read a post they aren't interested in? Silly people...

  2. What? I personally love reading personal posts, and as RubyRed said, there's always the choice of not reading posts that dont suit you... I was specifically looking forward your goals for the year posts, they are always so informative and well thought. I hope you'll reconsider this and just do what makes you happy, whatever that is. Love!

  4. I've been reading your blog for more than a year now and one of the reasons I keep reading is because you really give insight into the woman behind the witch. I can see the argument made though. Last January felt like it was all goal speak and very little craft. So instead of getting rid of all the personal stuff maybe you could limit it. Keep the monthly update but only update montly. Keep the January goal post but condense it into a single post. And when life gets tough and it will have a couple of articles or guest posts in the wings that aren't part of an ongoing series. Just hold onto a few articles for when you're too busy, too stressed or need something to preserve the balance of the blog. Perhaps set a ratio of 3 craft themed post to every 1 personal or even 4:1. I think balance should be your goal instead of eliminating this integral bit of character. Please consider it.

    1. I disagree. I was one of the people who participated in her Tumblr survey which I will assume led to this decision. The personal posts interrupt the witchcraft entirely. I didn't come here to read about her illness or her house. I came here for the witchcraft. Even intermittent posts are irritating to sift through. I think this is the best decision she has made in regards to her blog.

  5. I enjoyed them just as much if not more than the usual posts. Your goals posts were super helpful for me, and I was actually really looking forward to them this year - I'm finally in a space where I feel like I can commit to sustainable change on that scale.

  6. I didn't know about the Tumblr survey, but I'd just like to say I really enjoyed your personal posts. Your system of planning is what drew me to your blog in the first place. I love reading about your life, your work and familiars ... and even your health as I have a chronic illness myself and it's comforting to know that I'm not alone.

    Having said that, I know that single-topic blogs tend to be more successful, and I understand why you've made that decision.

    You said that you would continue to post updates on your personal Facebook. Will that be available for readers who are interested in your life updates? If not, I understand, you need a private life after all. But I really love your planning system and I'm hoping you'll share that at least.

    Happy Holidays! xx Katie.

  7. Hi again! I'm sorry to insist, but I came back to the post to read the other comments, and surely that irritated anonymous poster is a joy. You don't have to approve this comment, I unsderstand that maybe its better to move forward with this, but I wanted to say this: There is SO MANY encyclopedic content out there, so many informative sites, so many ways to get the facts, the descriptions, the stories... What made your blog unique and interesting is that interwoven humanity, that it was yours and your life gave meaning to your craft.
    What interest is there in reading one more article about familiars, if we can't picture your little guys, and remember how you literally MOVED for their sake? We can see hundres of pictures of sabbat altars, but yours make omre sense because we know how your year was, how your path shaped your decisions and your relationship with your craft...
    I'm really sorry you got some flack, and for whats worth, I didn't even know there was a survey! I dont do tumblr, I'm afraid...
    All my love, love, and have a great year.

  8. This makes me sad. I loved the updates, but I understand that if a larger amount of people are saying they don’t like it, it is probably better for the blog to stop. I guess I’ll just have to change my settings on Facebook to make sure I don’t miss anything.

  9. I really enjoyed your goal posts especially and I think the personal posts as a part of your blog's whole identity! I wish I hadn't missed this Tumblr survey, was it posted on the blog as well? I really hope you reconsider!

    1. Hi Lyn! The survey was only posted to Tumblr as it was ran for only a few hours. Thank you for your feedback!
