The good and bad sides of a having the website .

Hey everybody , my little website is growing and getting more visits everyday and i am very happy and thankfull for that , truly , when i created these simple webpages the intend whas helping fellow heathens from around the world getting acces to the old texts that are scatterd around the net , somethimes hidden in layers of subs , sometimes unformated and unedited and not easely readable without cracking your head ten times first . I never pictured getting a few hundred visitors a day . Original it whas actually a way for me to save some time eatch day . I am trying to share my humble knowings since about 10 years now as a mentor/guide .

This has always bin in a loose , unformal and unforced way , i like it better that way since i am absolutly no expert or proffesor on all of the content on the website and never claimed i whas either . I just know my way in finding the correct answer to questions most of the time .Just a way of passing knowledge from one heathen to another , helping eatchother out . I learn new things eatch day from other members around the globe and i love it . The mails i get from all of you gives me a happy feeling .

The intend of these webpages are actually the same , not formal or forced , while i try to make not many typo’s i bet there are a ton of them in what i write and post , i simply do not care that mutch, i have no intend on having i dont know how many digits of hits on the webpages nor getting publisht or hyped in any sort of way .The intend is still the same like when i talk to people , may it be personal ,email , messenger or any other medium we talk about . Its from on person to another , see it like talking to a friend . This way i perhaps reach and help more people . Still i have no intend on being a hyped blogger or well known person . The content of the pages are not for the big masses or the people who join a hype , its for you , the ones who like to see further then the hype’s , if you are looking for the old texts you must be pretty devoted .

So with all that said , in the last few days i have gotten alot of messages from people of all sort not interrested in the actual content of the pages . People who like to get me more hits , higher place in the search rankings , more advertise options and so on .

Let me be straight and clear on that , no i dont need to generate money from these pages , I happely pay for this website with my own money and No i dont want people to get ads pusht in there troats wile searching for info . No i dont want to be seen i the first pages of browsers .Neighter do i want to have a generic boosted liked page where i get 50 K likes or followers for x amount of money .

Its my opinion that the correct people will eventually find these pages and perhaps find that its a helpfull place . Perhaps they even share it among others and over time and it can help many others .

I am sure it could generate some revenue from visitors and would make me to brake even on the website cost , but you are not doing it from the kindness of your heart to send me these messages , but only for your own gains lol and i can understand that since we all have to make a living . But honestly , 180€ /year is not that mutch to guide and help a few people find what they need and even if it is 1 person . That makes it all worthwile . So please stop wasting both our times by sending those type of mails . I hate advertising on website’s and will never place them here , exempt perhaps a tab with the website and store’s from visitors if its related to the context of the pages . If the time ever comes that i need help to pay for these pages i will perhaps do what visitors have suggested and make a donation tab but this pages will never be a page filled with crap advertising that has nothing related to us heathens .

So thanks but no thanks .

New menu added – runes

Today i added a new menu tab on the website , info about the runes .

The most well known and used part of our faith .

Used for almost anything , from movies and games to furniture and clothing .

They still mark alot of the landscape as of today and still remain a mystery for most modern people

In the coming days i will add the runes sets pages links in the text also , see this page as the intro and general information about the rune sets .

I tried to cover as mutch as possible on the subject as i can and know, but like you should know , the runes are not an easy subject at all . So these pages will get bigger and even more evolved then what its now to start with . But its a subject i get alot of questions and mails for so i wanted to add this as a starter . The study of the runes can keep you busy a lifetime and still feel like you know nothing .

By all means i am not stating that i am a rune master or expert . Just my humble opnion and views on the matter , i added links and sources where i could .

It goes from the beginning – where we got them from – to use and abuse troughout history .

I know that this is a controversial part – the abuse – but we got to be honest about it so people who would like to learn about the runes and there usage should know not all people used these like we do and tryd to give them another meaning . Its just a matter of time when you learn or search upon the runes you will encounter these darker meanings .

And like with anything on the website , if you should see an error or not agree with something . Send me a message on the well known mail .

I hope you enjoy the pages and the ride .

The return to almost normal .

I know its bin a long time since ive added new material and i apologize for that .Ive recieved a alot of messages if i would add new content soon .

Since the start of the covid 19 crisis worldwide all of our life’s have bin interrupted and shuffles hard . As a father of 2 young children ive had to choose my time spending carefully .

Suddenly we where faced with work and alot of abcent people cause of sickness , homeschooling the kids and alot more .

We planned to take a roadtrip during the vacation true Denmark – Sweden – Norway and visiting alot of old and sacred places along with other places on the road . I am a metal fan and summer is festival time , i finally convinced the wife to come along with me to Midgardblot with the whole famely , it would be a 3 day stop on our roadtrip to .Well like you can imagine , none of it happend . But there is always next time if the Gods are willing . No point in looking back and feel sorry for what did not happen

So ive had to scale back on time working on the website .

Im very sorry for that , truly .

But now things start to look better again , the long vacation seems to end .

The schools are about to restart , social life seems to pick up again .

I hope you and your famelys have bin well during the crisis and that the Gods have kept you all safe from great harm . Looks like we can go back to a semy normal life , its not quite te same as prior the covid19 crisis but its something at least .

Keep safe and feel free to send your messages .

Work on the gods and goddess pages has started .

Since i have finisht about 95% of the Poetic en Prose Edda’s i can finally start the work on the pages for the gods and godesses . Why did i need to finish the edda’s first i hear you ask . Wel i wanted to be sure you can have a look at the ancient and sacred writings to verify what i posted on the deity’s . Where i can , i provide the chapter and line in the text with a link that opens in a new windows so you can compare without loosing your progress .

I did not expect that so many people would visit it , but now i see people from all over the world visiting and sending me message’s .

Finaly some time to continue !!

After the last weeks beeing hell in work and personal life i managed to finish up some work .

I finisht up the following chapters in the Poetic Edda .

Only a few remaining to be done with the Poetic Edda . I hope they are handy for you seeking the texts . I added the links in the text themselfs so you dont have to look true hundreds of pages to find what you need . I also experimented with tagclouds , since i found that the normal pages do not get found by search engine’s , only the blog posts do ( told you i am a noob on webpage creation lol ) . Like always , if you find any errors or fuck ups from me , feel free to send me a message . Thank you for visiting and i hope the gods keep you and your kin safe from the virus .


Prose Edda finisht !!

Today i added the last missing pages of the prose edda ( i think and hope ) .

I tried to make a page for all the smaller saga’s that get reffered to also .

If everything works like i planned , you should now be able to find these sacred writings in the Prose edda section in the drop down menu or the page of the Prose edda .

I made it also that you can click the links that point to The Poetic Edda or the Heimskringla for faster reference . They should all open in a new tab . I hope this way i can help some of you to find the text you need without have to search 50 webpages that all have some fragments of it .

You will still find some words in the texts that are cursief and bold , those are for me to remind me that i need to look for more info on them . But most are hard to find but i wont give up lol.

If by any chance any of you could provide me with a complete and correct translation of the Hattatal you would have my deepest respect and gratitude .

If you should find some errors please let me know because the reason i made these pages are to help people to find the correct info they seek .

I hope you find these pages usefull and goodnight , i hope you and your kin are in good health and .

Added a few pages .

Today i added the pages :

  1. Hákonarmál – The lay of Hákon.
  2. Eiríksmál – The lay of Eric
  3. Skáldskaparmál – in the Prose Edda section

Also made a page for the goddess Eir . Eir is the goddess of protection, clemency , help and mercy .This page is the first of many about the gods and godesses and give’s some basic info , example prayers and info on how to do blot for Eir .

People are searching to coop with this corona virus and perhaps some people can find some comfort .

I hope you are all safe and may the gods watch and guard you and your loved ones .

Is the whole world becoming nuts or what ?

In the last days all we hear and talk about is the corona virus , its normal that people worry because it is a nasty bitch virus .

But what i find disturbing is the fact the humanity can be seen on its best and worst side .

People are hoarding and plundering the store’s , alot of times the weaker get forgotten , like the elder and sick . The healthy would even push the elder and weak out of there way !!! People who are doing there part to fight this crisis and help others find nothing in store’s when they finally get some rest just because the hoarders and cowards looted everything .Where is the justice in that ? How can people alow that ?

If you follow and liv by the nine noble values NNV , you see them trampled everywhere .

There seems to be no honor left with some people ! Courage is gone with alot of people to , people are hidding away , again forgetting about the weaker ones . Industriousness and discipline are gone also .

I have bin a soldier for a large part of my life , and learnd alot about survival . But now its seems that all that ive learned whas a lie lol , you dont need shelter , water and food to survive , plain toiletpaper is the way to go !!!!!

If this worldwide crisis proves anything is that when there would be a war someday , it will be eatch for there own !! No courage left , no honor in most people anymore . Discipline is something people vaguely remember .

I hope the gods and ancestors are watching us all and see what we as a humanity have become .

Heimskringla

The single surviving page known as the Kringla leaf (Kringlublaðið) is kept in the National and University Library of Iceland. Click on the picture for the Wiki page of Heimskringla .

Today i started with working on the pages of the Heimskringla . Will add all the chapters in the coming week .

Heimskringla (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈheimsˌkʰriŋla]) is the best known of the Old Norse kings’ sagas. It was written in Old Norse in Iceland by the poet and historian Snorri Sturluson (1178/79–1241) c. 1230. The name Heimskringla was first used in the 17th century, derived from the first two words of one of the manuscripts (kringla heimsins, “the circle of the world”).

Heimskringla is a collection of sagas about Swedish and Norwegian kings, beginning with the saga of the legendary Swedish dynasty of the Ynglings, followed by accounts of historical Norwegian rulers from Harald Fairhair of the 9th century up to the death of the pretender Eystein Meyla in 1177. The exact sources of his work are disputed, but included earlier kings’ sagas, such as Morkinskinna, Fagrskinna and the twelfth century Norwegian synoptic histories and oral traditions, notably many skaldic poems. Snorri had himself visited Norway and Sweden. For events of the mid-12th century, Snorri explicitly names the now-lost work Hryggjarstykki as his source. The composition of the sagas is Snorri’s.

The first 2 chapters are already done and available .

  1. Ynglinga Saga
  2. Halfdan the Black Saga

Work on the The Volsunga Saga is finished .

Every part of The Volsunga Saga is now added to the menu .

The Völsunga saga (often referred to in English as the Volsunga Saga or Saga of the Völsungs) is a legendary saga, a late 13th century poetic rendition in the Icelandic language of the origin and decline of the Völsung clan (including the story of Sigurd and Brynhild and destruction of the Burgundians).

The saga covers themes including the power struggles among Sigurd’s ancestors; Sigurd’s killing of the dragon Fafnir; and the influence of the cursed ring Andvaranaut.

Richard Wagner used the Volsunga sagas as an inspiration in Der Ring des Nibelungen .

But the most known part of this play must be this ; Ride of the Valkyries .

This has bin used by almost every media possible , movie’s , serie’s and so on …….And most people dont know this is based on a Heathen saga . The most legendary use of this song is in the movie Apocalypse now .

The Ride Of The Valkyries” is the popular term for the prelude to Act III of Die Walküre, the second of the four operas by German composer Richard Wagner that comprise The Ring of the Nibelungs (German Der Ring des Nibelungen). The Ring of the Nibelungs is a sequence of four musical dramas based on the Norse saga, which concerns the turbulent family history of a race of gods and their pursuit of a magical golden ring. It began as a single opera focusing on the death of Siegfried but grew into a vast cycle of four operas comprising Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold), Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), Siegfried and Die Gotterdammerung (The Twilight of the Gods).

Searching for people who create items related to Heathenry and wanne promote there own work.
