Summary for the week ending Sep 17, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending September 17th, 2017.

The first rain in two months at the library, in the PNW even! And, it has started to get darker and colder in the mornings. But, at least the forest fires and smoke have also had rain on them as well. Switched from running the AC to running a dehumidifier this weekend.

I once made a list of characteristics I felt should be included in an ideal workplace, and having open hours that matched the changing local daylight was one of them. As it gets darker, I’ve been getting up to start work on the library later, so, in a way, I’ve got that now! Still up and at it around dawn, until noon; and there’s still so much to do, old and new pages alike.

I’ve decided to set office hours, which I was doing every day while working on the library, to just Tuesday morning, over in voice chat. I’ll try that for a while and see how it goes. Since I started to do those, I’ve had a few people, and a couple Patrons, stop by, but not a lot. There’s no specific purpose for them, other than a kind of unstructured time and place, if people have something about the library they want to talk about. Part of it was for a bit of virtual co-working as well, but it’s been so quiet there’s not much reason to do it every day.

This week is Reader’s Theatre: Household Gods, Thu Sep 21, 7-9pm Pacific, in voice chat, so, you know, mark your calendar, and maybe gander at Household Gods and think about how awesome it would be to participate!

Got ideas of what you’d want to attend or participate in as far as events over in voice chat? Or for another library podcast or video? Also, if you are interested in hosting or being a guest for an event, interview, class, or soever in voice chat or podcast or video get in touch and let’s talk about getting things going!

It’s less than two weeks before the September 30th deadline for submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 13 and to GIT COMMIT GLITCH, the Odd Order anthology. (I’ve not gotten submissions for the Odd Order anthology so far, so I may have to skip this year. Unless you’ve got something in mind!) If you’re working on a submission, hurry! If you’re not … time to start!

Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending September 10th, 2017.

This week, the main Hermetic Library tumblog over on Tumblr past 12,000 followers. Pretty cool! So, if you’re following on social media, and missed any of my posts saying thanks, or are just following along on the blog, or even if you’re just checking the actual website and none of the other stuff: thank you for being a fan of the Hermetic Library! I’m a fan too!

Special thanks to all the Funding and ongoing Patron supporters of the library for their help making all this possible!

Next week is Hermetic Library Reader’s Theatre 17aug2017 in voice chat, so, you know, mark your calendar, and maybe gander at Household Gods and think about how awesome it would be to participate!

It’s the last couple weeks before the September 30th deadline for submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 13 and to GIT COMMIT GLITCH, the Odd Order anthology. (I’ve not gotten submissions for the Odd Order anthology so far, so I may have to skip this year. Unless you’ve got something in mind!) If you’re working on a submission, hurry!

Summary for the week ending Sep 3, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending September 3rd, 2017.

This week, the Hermetic Library page over on Facebook past 80,000 followers. That’s a crazy big number! I’m a little bitter that I only reach a small fraction of those followers, even when I posted to thank them all, old and new alike, but, it is what it is, is it not? The Hermetic Library presence on Twitter recently passed 14,000, and the main library Tumblog is set to pass 12,000 followers this week. Pretty cool! So, if you’re following on social media, and missed any of my posts saying thanks, or are just following along on the blog, or even if you’re just checking the actual website and none of the other stuff: thank you for being a fan of the Hermetic Library! I’m a fan too!

I posted the podcast and video of Hermetic Library Reader’s Theatre 17aug2017 last week. This week, on Thursday, I’ll be announcing the next Reader’s Theatre, including the theme and date, but *spoiler alert* I’m planning on third Thursday in September, in voice chat, so, you know, mark your calendar, and maybe gander at Household Gods, for, um, no reason at all, why do you ask? *wink, wink*

Got ideas of what you’d want to attend or participate in as far as events over in voice chat? Or for another library podcast or video? Also, if you are interested in hosting or being a guest for an event, interview, class, or soever in voice chat or podcast or video get in touch and let’s talk about getting things going!

It’s the last few weeks before the September 30th deadline for submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 13 and to GIT COMMIT GLITCH, the Odd Order anthology. If you’re working on a submission, hurry! If you’re not … time to start!

Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.

Summary for the week ending Aug 27, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending August 27th, 2017.

This Thursday the podcast and video of the first Reader’s Theatre in voice chat will be posted. The podcast will post here on the blog and the video will post over on the library channel on YouTube. I was the only person to show up, so I read some selections to myself and the library cats. I did make a recording, which I’ll probably put up on the blog as a podcast and as a video up on the library’s YouTube channel. I definitely prove I didn’t rehearse, but, hey, that just means it was exactly what I said it would be!

I probably will do a few more, even if it’s just me doing them. But if it’s just me then there’s not much reason to do them in voice chat. Realistically, if it’s just me reading, then recording them directly, instead of through voice chat, would be better quality. Might as well try a few more anyway, either way, though.

Also, if you are interested in hosting or being a guest for an event, interview, class, or soever in voice chat or podcast or video get in touch and let’s talk about getting things going!

I’ve been getting a few submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 13! I still need more to make an album, so, you know, get on that or let others know! Also, there’s GIT COMMIT GLITCH, the Odd Order anthology too, for which I haven’t gotten any submissions yet.

Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending August 20th, 2017.

On Thursday of last week I held the first Reader’s Theatre in voice chat. I was the only person to show up, so I read some selections to myself and the library cats.

Summary for the week ending Aug 13, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending August 13th, 2017.

Be sure to mark your calendar for Reader’s Theatre on Aug 17th in voice chat at 7pm Pacific. Check out the post about it for more, but come with a selection you want to read and join in!

Also, thinking ahead and to start people thinking about it, are you interested in hosting or being a guest for an event, interview, class, or soever in voice chat? Get in touch and let’s talk about getting things going!

Over on the nascent email list, I appear to have passed my 93 subscriber goal. So … um, now I’ve got to actually do something with it. I’ve sent a couple emails to the list already, but I’ll start thinking about doing something regularly. Still not entirely sure what it will be. Why not head on over, subscribe to the list, and we’ll find out together!

Summary for the week ending Aug 6, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending August 6th, 2017.

I’ve updated the post where I describe the submissions process for writing an article, story, or review for the library blog. I updated the post to reflect more clearly what actual happens, as opposed to what I thought would happen at the time I wrote it originally. Also, I’ve added a new blurb about compensation, which was on the pitch form itself, but wasn’t clearly described in the post. Do consider reading through that and then heading over to pitch your idea for the library blog!

This week, I also announced a very similar open and rolling call for pitch ideas for submissions to Rigaroga’s Odd Order blog, created an online form for pitching ideas, and posted a nearly identical submissions process description to the Odd Order blog. If you’re into nerdish geekery, check that out and consider pitching an idea!

Over the last week, I’ve been informally hanging out on the Hrmtc Underground voice chat server in the mornings while I work on the site, for what I’ve been calling “office hours”. I’ve had a couple of conversations so far in text, but no one’s jumped into voice. Come on over and say howdy! Also, be sure to mark your calendar for Reader’s Theatre on Aug 17th in voice chat at 7pm Pacific.

Also, are you interested in hosting an event, interview, class, or soever in voice chat? Get in touch and let’s talk about getting that going!

Lots of new pages and work on old pages this week, which is pretty much every week for me, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.
