Greetings Witches, Pagans, Wiccans and Heathens,
It's been many a moon since we've communicated changes here at TWV. Allow us to bring you up to date.
- Our Cherished Editors: For the first time in years our editorial staff took a well deserved week off to attend a festival - This week we will feature the top 20 essays (below), based on page views, posted so far this year. - We deeply thank Diotima, Runewolf, Jessica, Falcon, Magdala, Teresa and Catherine for their dedication and faithfulness in keeping the essay section of Witchvox fresh and alive. - NOTE: at present we are backed up with over 130 essays and articles - If you've submitted an article it will be weeks before it is featured.
We take this opportunity to again thank Christina for her help with Wren's Nest earlier this year - We love all creatures Aubin.
- Global E-test Complete: Last weekend we sent out email tests to the 110,754 active accounts that drive the hundreds of thousands of listings here at Witchvox. - 13,415 were returned; RE: user unknown, mailbox full etc. - Those accounts and attached listings have been removed. - We do this cleansing ritual annually to keep the 'Witches of the World' section at TWV as clean and useful as possible. - If your listing(s) is gone - kindly create a new account with a working email address.
- Verizon.net Email addys: - Three days ago we (finally!) solved the issue where accounts with verizon.net email address were NOT getting mail from the Witchvox server. To figure this out we had to become a verizon.net customer and work with them for hours. Sadly, this was more painful than necessary. Mercifully, this is now fixed.
- Witchvox Tampa: - In late June, The Witches' Voice office was moved from Clearwater to Tampa, Florida - the new Witchvox mailing address can be found on the bottom of all pages here.
- Witchvox Traffic: The Witches' Voice continues to see an incredible amount of traffic on a daily basis and many sections of TWV have hit new highs. - The Kerr Cuhlain 'Witch Hunts' Series has generated over 1.2 million reads to date, Wren's Nest News has experienced nearly 26 million views and the overall site page views stat is at 217 million. - The recently cleaned up 'Witches of the World' section, continues to be our busiest section and the wotw pages have been consumed 10's of millions of times - You've built an amazing global Pagan resource, give yourselves a round of applause.
- Witchvox Financial Status: This site/organization can offer news and networking to the world thanks to those that have supportted this organization by becoming Witchvox sponsors - We deeply thank those of you that HAVE sponsored Witchvox over the past 9 years. Financially, Witchvox IS stable and our biggest expense - http://www.witchvox.ws (our webserver) is 'paid in full' for until June of 2007 - Since no staff member has ever taken a penny for their work here we have no need to solicit sponsorship in a big way.
- Bicca/Bitchcraft: - As one of the busiest sites on the Pagan net, a day doesn't go by without receiving emails warning, bitching or complaining about the 'agendas' of others in our communities. - Some are legitimate concerns - many are local WitchWars.... For countless reasons, we can't/don't get involved directly in these issues - we DO draw the line at documented illegal behavior. Be careful out there! - Our communities ARE infested with Takers, Thieves and Opportunists... Their egos/wallets want your attention/money. - Don't take magickal advice or 'training' from those that don't have THEIR house in order. There ARE wonderful Pagans out there - and they are easy to spot if you know what to look for.
- 'round the Pagan web: We take this time and space to celebrate the life and work of Tina Coutu (avatarsearch.com) - may her memory never fade!
Quick observations: Many of the bigger 'community' sites have gone dead or disappeared over the past couple of years - Countless Personal Blogs, message boards and yahoo groups continue to see most of the Pagan Net traffic. - RSS feeds continue to be big - the combined Witchvox and Wren's Nest rss feeds see over a quarter of a million grabs/calls a week. Initial testing, reveals that our rss feeds do not work with IE7 beta - We will put some work into that. - Pagan Audio/Podcast sites are also on the rise. - Pagan retailing continues to suffer from the 'more vendors than customers' reality of the past 4 years - Pagan 'shops' have been 'dropping like flies' of late - leaving many a customer NOT holding the bag, they paid for - Be careful with whom you give your money to.
The WV staff would like to thank our sponsors, and all the good folks in our communities that give their time and energies for the betterment of the all - You've built something amazing here - We thank you for your magick.
In your service,
The Witches' Voice Inc.
