Welcome to Rune Secrets! Many of you know me as Tyriel, the admin of Rune Secrets and the author of The Book of Rune Secrets.
The Rune Secrets Study Community at http://runesecrets.net started Beta in March of last year, and has since grown a vibrant and active membership base.
Now, I am going to conduct a massive 48-week online rune course. For free! To sign up, just create an account at http://runesecrets.net and you’ll always be notified when course material is posted.
Every two weeks, we will focus on one rune. The site is very active, and there’s bound to be a lot of material outside of this rune, but the idea is to thoroughly explore one rune at a time for the rest of 2012.
During this time, you are free to participate in a number of ways. Of course, if you prefer just to be a silent reader, that is your choice and you’re still welcome to do so, even though I’d love to hear from you.
Members often chose their level of involvement from a variety of features on the Community site.
- Leave comments about the post or in response to other comments.
- Ask or answer questions on the forum.
- Write your own blog on a rune-related topic.
- Contribute videos.
- Form or join focus groups on topics like rune-linguistics, creating a beginner’s guide, Poetic Eddas study.
When you create your account, I’d love to see you upload a picture of yourself. The default picture is a grey outline of a person, which will hardly do you justice. Uploading a photo just as so many benefits, and makes everyone realize that you are a real human being, not just some text on a screen.
There’s a vibe of mutual respect and harmony on the site that I’m positive you’ll all enjoy, and those participating in discussions will tell you that they are learning a lot and having a great time. Come join us, and participate in the largest ever online rune course… all for free!
Wishing you the warmest of welcomes,
