The White Goddess

My aim when I set up this site, was for it to be a repository for all the things that interest me. To be an online record of my thoughts as a pagan. Most of the articles on the site have been written by me. Though past members have written things, for which I'm very thankful.

I set it up in June 21st 2001, so over 7 years ago. The Witchweb Forum was a progression from this site, containing most of the pages from the old White Goddess Site (which are still available online) and the forum.

Setting up a forum is not as easy as it sounds, a lot of work goes into getting it registered on search engines, getting members and more importantly getting and keeping them posting.

August 2004 saw the close of Witchweb, it was a hard thing to do. But for personal reasons, I didn't have the time or inclination to spend on it as I should. The White Goddess site was still here, though sadly neglected and no new articles had been added for a while.

Around September 2004, I decided to give the old site a revamp. Redesigning the site from scratch. I wanted to incorporate all the things I'd learnt since I first put the site up, both in pagan terms and the coding and programming of the site.

Since the new site went live, I've added over 100 more pages to the site. A lot of these came from other sites I had going, but decided to consolidate into a single site. However there was still a lot of new stuff to keep me busy.

On the second of November 2004, I added the Site Stats, and since then visitors have clocked up an amazing 5214288 page views (and Counting). The guestbook, a feature from the old site, still attracts a lot of favourable comments from visitors. These comments, make all the effort I've put into the site worthwhile.

In August 2008, after many years of the site being neglected and no new design and layout, I decided it was time to give the site a complete overhaul.  It now uses my own Content Management System, which I'd developed as a commercial project for my Web Design Business.  This allows a far greater control over content creation and layout.  It uses the latest in XHTML and CSS.

So that brings us up to the current day. But what lies in store for the future? Well only time can tell. There will always more articles to write, new pages to code, new friends to meet in the forums. But most of all I would like to say a big thank you to all those who have visited this site over the past four years, because you make this the place that it is.

Thank you everyone.
