Omnium Gatherum: 2may2021

An irregular hodgepodge of links gathered together … Omnium Gatherum for May 2, 2021

Hey, hey! It’s the first Omnium Gatherum for May 2021, so I’m opening this one again, on the blog and on Patreon, to all Patrons! So, howdy all Patrons! Thank you for your ongoing support!

Also, I’ve gone back and made public all the Omnium Gatherum posts from April 2020 so, after a year of being exclusive on the blog to Patrons, everyone can see what was posted then. So, a year from now: howdy everyone!

It looks like I was doing these once a week back then, and started doing twice weekly the following month, May 2020. These have definitely continued to evolve over time, and I keep in mind ways I might switch things up in the future. One recent change is that there’s a new way to get Omnium Gatherum posts via email as a supporting Member of the free Newsletter, for those that want that option. I’ve also wondered off and on whether I should try to split all the topics I include so that perhaps I do the more tech and geeky stuff somewhere other than on the library blog. I’m not sure yet, but it has been something I’ve wondered about doing. Maybe that will happen, but not quite yet or now!

Speaking of exclusive, as an addendum to my recent Patreon post about new merch for May, the ongoing experiment this year continues apace, and I note that brand new Sticker fulfillment has continued to expand, and also note that additional fulfillment has begun for the Mini Print, with people earning these for May after their own 3 month milestones!

I’ll be starting to pull together the next postal mailing this month and get that out toward the end of May / beginning on June. That’s also when I’ll be sending out the magazines and ritual kit from the Femme Occulte giveway. Oh, wow, I also need to get ready with all the stuff for the call for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 16 that I post at the beginning of June. And, I don’t know that I’ll have enough to put out another Zine in July, but I’ll start to think about that in earnest now and put things I have into the layout to see how many pages I have and how many I need to fill. So, lots to do soon, along with all the regular activities!

Well, that’s the Patron updates for the month that come to mind! Did I forget something? IDEK! As a reminder, I’ve moved most of my general thoughts and non-Patron updates over to the free Hermetic Library Newsletter, so do consider subscribing over there for weekly updates and fun, if you haven’t already. I’ll let you decide for yourself if you want to subscribe, instead of adding you, but you can check out all the previous issues to see what it is like. Hopefully you’ll find it as interesting as I think it is? I mean, yeah!

As always, thank you for your ongoing support of my work and helping to keep Hermetic Library going. If you’ve questions or concerns, or ideas about what would make your experience as Patron better, let me know!

Here’s a variety of notable things I’ve recently found that you may also be interested in checking out:

This post was possible because of support from generous ongoing Patrons. Patrons get access to Omnium Gatherum immediately. On the blog, this will be exclusive to Patrons for one year, after which I’ll make it publicly available to everyone so they can see what they’ve been missing.
