Hello and welcome to the new home of The God Blog. For those who don’t know me (and that would be most of you), allow me to introduce myself. My name is Christine Graves and I’ve been writing online for well over 20 years now. I’ve managed websites, blogs, newsletters, and much more. I’ve been published by numerous online publications, as well as a few printed ones. I’ve written both fiction and non-fiction, worked as a copywriter and ghostwriter, and I’m a HUGE fan of ancient histories and mythologies. I’ve spent over 40 years learning all I can about the ancient gods and goddesses, as well as the societies and cultures that worshiped them. Though I am NOT an expert (no formal learning at all), I have acquired a vast array of knowledge about the subject. (In a nutshell, I’m a history geek).
Okay, now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s get on with it. Here’s what you can expect to find in the coming months from this blog. My goal for this site is to just be a source of information. However, being a kid that grew up in the Bible Belt, you’ll probably see a lot of my views on Christianity. No, I won’t be throwing sermons down your throat. Just be aware that from time to time, you might see a quick conversation between me and God. It’s a series I have in mind I’ll be calling “Dear God”. I’ll explain more in an upcoming post.
You’ll also be seeing a lot of links to websites and platforms dedicated to the thousands of gods and goddesses that have been worshiped since ancient times. I’ll add sites on archaeological finds, new theories on old ideas, and maybe a few modern myths and legends along the way. You never know what I’ll come up with.
I’d like to do a few book reviews, as well. I love a good book about the gods. I’ll also be adding sites that promote the fictional side to the gods and maybe offer up some places where you can write as a god. Yeah, I know a place.
I’m very excited to see where this blog can go. And yes, it came to me in a dream one night. Almost as if it was ordained by the gods themselves. Who knows, maybe they’re still working in our lives without our knowledge. Whether we believe in them or not.
