Blog Time!

“Something there is that doesn’t love a blog”…or is it “good blogging makes good neighbors?” I’ve always been rather of two minds on the subject and so have refrained from this most popular pastime, and I’ve certainly had enough articles to write for www.astrococktail.com and for Matrix. Since AstroCocktail began a few years back, however, a whole astro-blogosphere has arisen that invites participation. So, I’m glad to be responding to Michael Erlewine’s call to help set up a Matrix family of astro-bloggers in connection with his return to head this greatest pioneer of astrology software companies, the technology of which he himself was the pioneer.

 

And, it lets me do some things I have avoided on AstroCocktail, which is entirely devoted to full-length articles, plus world news, with only a little music and maritime hiding in the rear. Like, for instance, just opine on a subject without trying to do a complete wrap on it. Or, maybe move to the edges of other material that touches on astrology and astrologers though may be only ancillary to it, but interests me particularly. And, to invite other opinion and experience to fill in the blanks where ideas are half-formed or curiosity is piqued. Maybe even to do a little political and social commentary which I’ve avoided in the past. Those are the kind of things that blogging uniquely suits, so why not dive in and try, in the good company of other friends I’ve known in the field for many years?

 

I’ll also use the opportunity to post the latest handful of world news astrology story links, though for a full listing of the thousands of stories that have appeared around the world in the last few years, you’ll have to go to the AstroCocktail news page and its archives…
