I started this site three years ago because when I was just beginning to hear the Gods and Goddesses in the early 80' s the internet was not yet established, and therefore not available to me, and even though I tried desperately to contact people in our religion, ( Only one of my letters was ever answered ), books were the only source of information for me on our religion. After 30 years of reading and studying everything I could find about our religion, and our culture, I decided that I wanted to help those just starting out by trying to teach them what I call "Asatru 101". Three years, 19,000 visitors a month, 712 articles, 103 poems, and 12 short stories I feel that I have succeeded at least to some extent. Most come to my site for about a year and then move on to a more intense study of our religion. Some have stayed with me for the duration and feel they still can learn something from what I write.
If you have gotten to the point where you feel the need to move on then I wish you well in your search for knowledge and wisdom, as a follower of the old ways. Everything that you have learned, and will learn, greatly honors our ancestors and our Gods, and makes you a much more important person to our religion, and for our folk. My mission, however, will never change. I feel it is my duty to help those just entering our religion with articles, stories, and poetry. I will not allow others to go through what I went through all those years ago when I first started out. I will always keep a candle lit for all to follow, so that they too may find their way in our Asatru religon !
