christmas + new(-ish) platform

I hope you all had wonderful Christmases. If not, I hope the New Year is far more prosperous.

I adored every second of Christmas, it was one of my favourites from recent years! My ‘big’ present or so to speak was a new camera. I’ve wanted a decent camera for about three years now, but this was the year that I decided to take the plunge. So far I am loving it, so much so that I’ve set up a new Instagram account for it – @clodafoto (shameless plug number 47828364…)

This is a sample of the kind of photos I’ve taken so far:

 

I intend on posting photos to The Electric Oracle too, something I haven’t really been doing up to now.

Until the New Year,

Love and luck,

one thousand of you | festivities

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 19.38.55I promise this is the last milestone I’ll write about on here, but I do feel like this is a (relatively) big one. This week, The Electric Oracle hit 1,000 followers! To say I’m surprised would be an overstatement, but to say that I’m grateful would be an understatement.

Thank you so, so much for sticking with me, in spite of how erratic my posts have become. If I’m being honest I did not expect final year to hit me as hard as it has, so posting every week has proved a challenge. The idea of posting for the sake of it seems deplorable to me, hence the irregularity.

In the New Year I hope to broaden The Electric Oracle with new kinds of posts. I also look forward to engaging with even more of you, potentially via different platforms.

As I write this it is  – bafflingly –  two days ’til Christmas; 2017 has whizzed past, but I am so glad that I found the time to put my toe in the water with The Electric Oracle. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a glorious day. If you celebrate Christmas and you’re struggling, I’m so sorry. I understand how Christmas magnifies any surrounding negativity and strife. Remember that this will pass, now is not forever. Lastly, if you don’t celebrate Christmas at all, I hope you enjoy the holiday period nonetheless!

Thank you endlessly for your support, it means more than you could ever know.

Love and luck,

Clodagh X

missing in action…

As you may or may not have noticed, I haven’t posted on The Electric Oracle for two weeks. Two weeks! I think that’s my longest break thus far. I’m very very sorry, but I’ve been incredibly busy with college / uni, mainly to do with my dissertation. I’ve also been doing other bits and pieces on the side; I’ve been helping out on an Irish language and culture-based podcast called ‘Motherfoclóir’, and I’ve been preparing for Christmas.

Realistically, I won’t be posting as much on The Electric Oracle between now and Christmas, much and all as I would love to. But I deplore the idea of churning out posts for the sake of a posting schedule; if something isn’t up to par, I won’t put it out.

In the meantime, you can watch my latest video for The Electric Oracle here, you can find Motherfoclóir wherever podcasts can be found (iTunes, that little podcast button on your iPhone, and this link right here), and you can pray that I make progress with this dissertation!

Thank you for bearing with me.

Love and luck,
