I have a new blog logo for Primeval Pixie. This is orange/yellow-based and features a little pixie! It also now has the tagline “ancient mysteries & mythologies.”
Along with the head banner, I also have updated the homepage banner too…

It’s been a while since I’ve written a “blog update.” I’ve been thinking a lot about how many changes this blog has gone through in the past several months. I’m still happy with the decision I made at the start of 2022 to switch from “Lotus Laura” to “Primeval Pixie.” Although my WordPress username will always be lotuslaura94 🙂 !
I don’t know if others can see this, but at least for me personally, this change has been extremely noticeable. For so long I was writing a little bit about everything, and now it really helps to have more of a focus, which I would call “ancient mysteries and mythologies.” I think it’s great for blogs to have variety, which I still continue to do, but it feels better to have a focal point.
What I really feel has changed is that I’m allowing myself to write about the things that I have always wanted to write about, but felt very nervous to post publicly. Writing so openly about astrology or other occult topics was something I was very fearful of. Looking back, I’m not even sure why I found that scary. I think it’s especially hard to write about what you are truly passionate about, because you will end up taking the criticism a lot harder. But thankfully, at least for now, I really haven’t received much criticism at all — actually I have attracted a lot more viewers who I feel more connected with because we are interested in the same things.
Now that I’m realizing that it’s not really that big of a deal, it makes me wonder if people even realize how much my style has recently changed. But if I looked at my present blog, one or two years ago, most especially five or six years ago, I think I’d be pretty shocked at what I am posting for my friends, family, and long-time followers to see. I am an extremely private and closed-off person, so being this transparent about my true passions is absolutely radical to me.
It’s just flabbergasting to me, thinking about how much more open I have become. To think that I spent most of my childhood writing short stories, and that I did not share any of that with the world until I was twenty-three, is crazy. And to think that three years later it would turn into a self-published novel that I am promoting and asking strangers to review, is just insane. And now I am posting about absolutely weird stuff — horoscopes, tarot cards, witchcraft, crystal healing, conspiracy theories, aliens, all different religions — things that are not “normal” and I am loving it.
I’m not really sure if I’ll ever find material success through this, if I’ll ever earn back enough money that I’ve had to spend to put into this, but that’s almost irrelevant at this point because I have gained so much inner success. Again, I’m not really sure if this is noticeable to others. But at least for me, I feel an enormous amount of inner growth.
