This week’s Isiopolis edition is going to be a couple of shorter posts rather than one long one since I have several different topics to address.

First, thank you Joanna of the Ancient Foods blog for nominating Isiopolis for the Inspiring Blog Awards. Ancient Foods certainly inspires me. I invite all kitchen witches and foodie Pagans alike to have a look and enjoy the ride.

Here are the rules, by which I shall now abide:

The rules for the “Inspiring Blog Award” are:

• Acknowledge and thank the giver.

• Link back to the nominator’s blog.

• Put the award on your Homepage

• List seven things about yourself.

• Give the award to seven bloggers who inspire you.

The seven things about me are:

1. I will be up at 4 am tomorrow to watch for Isis’ star to rise

2. I never know what to write in lists like these

3. My Higher Self/Isis Self apparently has horns

4. My current nightstand reading is Stacy Schiff’s Cleopatra and Christopher Moore’s You Suck

5. My brother, who had a very bad divorce and for whose love life I feared, is getting married again (yay!)

6. I have lots of magical jewelry but wear it infrequently

7. I have an Isis temple in my backyard built by some crazy-wonderful friends

I would like to nominate these blogs for this award:

C. LaVielle’s Book Jacket Blog

House of Vines


Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

Rogue Classicism

Reality Sandwich

Where Dionysos Dwells

Thank you, Joanna, and all of you who read this blog. Have an Isis-blessed week.
