New Layout 2015!


In case you're subscribed and rarely see the site or are on mobile where things just went from black to white with a new header, I recently made a full commitment to changing the layout for Witchy Words!  In addition to a newer, pastel palette and larger text for easier reading, I've also created sections for better access to topics I often discuss and made it much simpler to ask questions!  There's even a new About section so you can learn a bit more about me and the site.  Nothing too detailed yet.  Over the next three months, I'll be fine-tuning the sections, so expect some more changes there.  But overall, welcome to the new look of the site!

Thank you so much for all of your support, readers! I couldn't do it without you!
