Blogging Tips for Idiots (Meaning Me)

Blogging is a craft unto itself and it took me two years to realize a mistake that cost me. Don’t do what I did. Learn the craft. Master it and you’ll master yourself.

Learning the Futhark

I have many interests. The Futhark happens to be one of those interests. However, in my studies on learning these old runes, I have had a hard time trying to figure out how to say the many names of the runes.
