On the day of the Hene kai Nea, I post a monthly update about things that happened on the blog and in projects and organizations related to it. I will also announce Elaion's coming PAT rituals.

Changes to the blog:
  • I've made a dent in answering reader questions. If you're still waiting for an answer, sorry! Feel free to send your questions again!
  • I've been going through my tags in the right hand menu and weeding out weird and disused ones, making it easier to search my blog.
  • I have linked Blogger to Facebook! That means my Facebook page is now up to date every day!

  • 3/5 - Elaphebolion 6 - Elaphebolia - festival in honor of Artemis
