Old Norse Paganism Official Launch Date
Hello, it is with great pleasure that I have the privilege of testing our new blog and website. In this test post, I will be giving you information on what you can expect to see from Old Norse paganism and what some of our goals are as well as how we plan to get there. So, without further delay lets get this party started.
Who Are We
Old Norse paganism is a Norse community that includes the terms Vikings, Heathens, Norse, Norsemen, and women. Our community is focused on Norse as a religion and bringing people closer to the gods and each other as a civilization and community. We strive to grow personally in our relationships as well as those with our Norse Gods. We are also at the very early and beginning stages of a Norse Social Network. giving us (The Community) the ability to continue growing with vast amounts of knowledge and wisdom as that which was highly sought after by Odin himself. Together, we can and will continue to gain wisdom and knowledge.
We are a nonprofit organization. and as such everything we do and have done has been out of the kindness of our team’s hearts as volunteers to give something meaningful back to our Norse brothers and sisters. We operate totally on donations, and what goods and services we have available for purchase in our market. We have also formed a partnership program to help not only the community but the members of our community that have businesses.
What Old Norse Paganism Does
This website is our home, our Kettikut. A place where every member has the ability and is encouraged to share their thoughts, opinions, all in an effort to help others learn. As such our founder Richard will be conducting a weekly post on Odin’s Day to inspire, educate, and entertain each of our members. That event like others can be found on our Events page. We host a number of events online all geared to get everyone involved in the community. From assorted contests and giveaways to our E-Book club, and much much more planned for the future.
We also strive to post valuable content daily. Whether its a column from Richard, myself, or one of our other awesome Norse brothers and sisters it will be here. We will be sharing a monthly game created by our founder each month. We also have a Norse Word of the week, as well as teaching home remedies and tricks of our Norse ancestors.
We also have a good start on exclusive members only Digital Library ranging in what’s available from the Prose Edda to the Erik the Red Saga and many more. The features of this site and our Norse community will continue to grow we Norseman and women grow and as our community as a whole grows. If you think we are missing something let us know. We want to know where our weak points are much as a Norse Berserker would want to know their weak points to become a better berserker.
We have even gone so far as to create an achievement system that awards members with custom-designed badges to wear on their profiles with honor for having accomplished various achievements. We currently have 21 possible achievements and badges and will add more as we can. This community is for you our fellow Norsemen and women.
