Hello! I'm really interested into getting into witchcraft and such but, i don't know where to start,,, do you know any reliable sources or blogs that can help me learn and take my first steps in it?
Welcome to the community! How nice of you to ask! I also found it hard to find a place to start as well. I am a fellow baby witch, so I am not as knowledgeable as most, but of course, i would love to share some of my favorite blogs and places I’ve found to be incredibly helpful in starting my journey!
https://witchy-woman.tumblr.com/ Witchy-Woman is known as the witch mom of Tumblr. Hers is one of the
very first blogs I found after I started diving into witchcraft. I
really found her helpful and easy to talk to (ive sent a few anons since
I was nervous!) and she has some amazing tips and ideas as well as
these really cool spell jars, which I LOVE!
http://orriculum.tumblr.com/ This blog is another one of my favorites, of course, it’s so hard to choose just one favorite, but they’re definitely at the top. General spells and easy beginner stuff. They are also very very friendly and will answer questions you may have for sure!
http://nightshadeandroses.tumblr.com/ I absolutely adore her! She is sassy and has plenty of her own
content, spells and such, as well as helpful information. Definitely
check her out!
http://naomi121406.tumblr.com/ So this is a blog I literally just found a few hours ago and she is great! I’ve found some wonderful content for new witches on things such as energy and element practice, as well as sea witch things, if you’re interested in that. (Still in the process of checking her out!)
http://ivythewitch.tumblr.com/ Probably the first blog I found when I started my witch blog. They are also very helpful and are more than willing to answer your questions, no matter how stupid you might think it sounds, they never make you feel bad. I love their blog so much!
Also check out books by Scott Cunningham (he writes a lot of Wicca material but he’s really helpful) and go ahead and check out this website if you’re interested in Wicca:
https://www.wicca.com/ This is wiccan, however, it helped me discover the difference between witchcraft and Wicca and what path I wanted to go on.
***I also would suggest just a general google search as well, just to see what else there is out there.***
I follow about 24 witches right now ( and I believe maybe a few people who are Wiccan), these are just the five blogs I really follow closely and interact with the most right now (but there are so so sooooo many wonderful blogs and websites out there!) ~ I know its a little nerve-racking when you start but reading and reseaching is one of the most important things you can do. I would suggest starting a side blog or perhaps a book (usually called a Grimoire or Book of Shadows) to write down everything you’ve learned if you are really serious about getting into witchcraft. And of course, check out other places than Tumblr. I love the community here, but I also have read a few books as well as websites and I have a couple co-workers who practice that have told me a few things.
***Keep in mind that I am not an advanced practioner and cannot give you a lot of advice in your actual practice at this point (since I’ve barely cast any spells myself) but I can give you the tools and I would love to work together to discover our paths together! Good luck on your journey!
