Mythopoeia through blogging

mythopoeia

https://www.lexico.com/definition/mythopoeia

Pronunciation /ˌmɪθə(ʊ)ˈpiːə

mass noun

  • The making of a myth or myths.‘For, as noted above, Tasso’s is the first vernacular poem to mold Musaeus in the Ovidian heroic manner: apostrophe, ethopoeia and digressive mythopoeia abound.’

Intention statement, mythopeoia, and Personal Myth

As may be the case for many who start out blogging, I’m looking at this as a big experiment, a hobby, and a way to reach an audience with my ideas and art – to share my perspective with the world.

Coming from a relatively short-lived career as a high school art instructor (slightly under 10 years), I decided to pursue a MA/PhD in Mythological Studies with Emphasis in Depth Psychology. I’m almost 3 quarters in, and I intend for this blog to document parts of my educational experience, showcase my visual art, share random thoughts and ideas and network.

The study of Myth is great and vast, and I am but a grain of sand. In crafting and curating this blog, I intend to engage in the act of personal meaning-making, or as I see it, becoming a more active participant in my Personal Myth.

*I am curious to know if and how people will respond to my reflections and posts. Please like, comment, and share feedback as you see fit! I love to engage in conversation and would love for this blog to serve as en extension of that. Share your thoughts! I can be reached via email at gTronn@thewinedarkseawithinme.com as well. Much love.

  1. Good luck on your blogging journey. I personally love to combine writing with my interests. The reason I started my blog, however, has changed greatly. I feel like blogging is an evolving, living thing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to provide your insights! Blogging is completely new to me. After taking a look at your most recent post, I feel especially grateful that someone such as yourself who has so much experience and wisdom to share both as a blogger and a human being would take the time to comment on one of my inaugural posts! It feels both exciting to have a new way to express myself and also completely terrifying. It reminds me of stage fright and the connection between nervousness and the rush of adrenaline I used to get when doing live stage performance. Thanks for sharing your perspective. I feel honored. 💜🔥🙌🏻

      1. I do get what you are feeling. Writing a post can be free expression but on a very public forum. But don’t give up! It takes around a year to get moving with your new little community in terms of comments and views.
