Don’t know about anyone else, but sometimes we have the absolute worst time trying to come up with interesting things to write about. So after pondering the issue for a bit, we came up with a few prompts that we thought would make excellent starting points. Then, after mulling it over a bit longer, we thought it would be a great idea to share them with everyone, in an effort to inspire others who may also be struggling for a topic to write about, or just like the idea of adding a bit of structure to their blogs. So was born the “Pagan Insights” project.
It’s a mixed media project – one that is designed to give a bit of insight into one’s own path, as well as general information on Paganism, and the Pagan “lifestyle” (whatever that means XD). There are 5 different prompts to work through, which include writing, images, music and more, and the really great thing about this project, is that you can work at your own pace. You can do all 5 every week, every other week, once a month, or you can work at a more leisurely rate and simply choose one prompt each week so that you have always have something to post. Or you can go all out, and post them all in one blog post, as often as you like. For some it can be a daily or weekly journal for keeping track of progress on one’s path, and for others it might simply be a touchstone to return to once every holiday, or every full moon to see where you are in that moment. Which ever you choose, how you use the Pagan Insights project is entirely up to you!
* In Your Own Words – your thoughts and feelings – maybe a full blog post on a topic of your choice related to your path (or Paganism in general) or just a few sentences on where you are right now. What are you studying? What are you thinking? Who are you, and where are you going on your Pagan path? What’s right and what’s wrong in Paganism at the moment?
* Post A Pic – post an image related to your path, or one that invokes a feeling/emotion related to your spirituality (or craft… if one is a non-religious Witch), along with a sentence or two describing the image.
* Musical Musings – post a song, chant or poem related to your path, or one that invokes a feeling/emotion related to your spirituality (or craft). Can be in word form, but videos would definitely be awesome as well. On a spiritual level, what is your music of the moment? Is this a song stuck in your head, or one you played before your last ritual?
*Action, Action – post about a ritual, working or other experiential moment related to your path that has occurred recently, or that you are planning to do.
* Eureka! – post about something new that you have learned, or discovered recently, that is related to your path or Paganism in general.

This is a wonderful idea! I look forward to participating and reading along 😀
I’ll be participating at myowndruidry.tumblr.com and encouraging all my pagan study groupies (paganstudygroup.tumblr.com) to participate as well!
I’ll play along. I probably won’t keep much of a regular schedule, but I’ll post things when I can.
I love this! I sent you my link to my blog 🙂
Welcome everyone!! Thanks for joining in the project. I can wait to see some of your posts!! 🙂
Great idea, thank you! I added my blog to the list. 🙂
This is a great idea, especially since you’ve made it ‘mixed media’. I do something similar at Pagan Blog Prompts each week. Do you mind if I put the badge for this on PBP? I will even make a post to encourage my followers to stop by and check this out.
I will be joining in with this on my personal pagan blog, on a not-so-regular basis, if anyone cares to join me.
Thank you so much, that would be awesome!! 🙂
Glad you aren’t offended…. Badge added to PBP, post scheduled to go live Sunday morning explaining it… Now to add the badge to my own blog…
Fantastic Idea! Thanks!
Hi from The Sisters Elemental! Just signed up! This is such a great idea!!! Namaste.
I will be making an attempt to do this, I think …
I’d love to give this a try at Pixiecraft.
I like this idea. I saw the post thanks to Sunfire’s prompts. Just linked and posted about point 1.
Update – my pagan blog is no more, but you can follow my main blog, Sunfire’s Ramblings, and I’ll post once in a while regarding this. Still reworking my blogging schedule at the moment…
