Book of Shadows Blog

Most Witches know that a Book of Shadows is a place to put rituals, spells, and journal entries of your Craft.

Think of this Blog as CyberWitchcraft's online Book of Shadows.

It's a place to post additions and changes to the site, as well as articles of interest that are just too small, or too time sensitive to be a normal website article.

With the Book of Shadows Blog, you can find out when a new article has been added, or a current article has been changed. You can even see original content that isn't presented anywhere else on the site.

All without having to actually come to the website! If a blog interests you, simply click the link in the blog to be taken directly to the page of interest.

It really is that simple!

To subscribe to the Book of Shadows Blog (no e-mail necessary), right-click on the orange RSS button (see the buttons to the left, under the Navigation buttons) and then paste the URL into your RSS reader. Or click on the My Yahoo! button or My MSN or Add To Google button if you keep a personalized home page there.

If you're using Internet Explorer 7, or Firefox, you can set them up to notify you of new Blog entries too!
