Thank You, Donald Trump!

The man hasn't even been inaugurated yet as president and already he's scored A Yuge Win for the Blogosphere for which I am profoundly grateful. He has single-handedly inspired Anne Johnson to revive her blog, The Gods Are Bored, which she had discontinued a year ago!

The Gods Are Bored is the very first blog that I ever read back in the mists of time about 10 or 11 years ago when I scarcely even knew what a "blog" was. I was immediately captivated by Anne's delightful tales concerning (among other things) bored pagan deities with far too little to occupy their time in this modern world, her family and job, Decibel the parrot, her obsession with upholstery, a mysterious poet friend named The Monkey Man, her Druid circle and her passionate environmental and other causes.


Anne honours the Sacred Thunderbird and enthusiastically serves as a local vulture festival's mascot each year. Here she is in action!


Her passion for fun, play and dress-up also extends to being a member of the Two Street Stompers mummers group every year in Philadelphia's New Years Day Mummers Parade.


She's in this photo somewhere!


Anne is deeply committed to human rights and equality. She is not going to sit by idly or silently as everything that has been achieved in the USA to date comes under attack. So she has revived her blog as a chronicle of her upcoming efforts. I encourage you all to check out The Gods Are Bored and follow along for the ride!

There have been so many wonderful bloggers who disappeared. How wonderful to have one back! I tell you what, if all it takes is one controversial election, bring on the controversy!

I was wondering if she would ever come back. Thanks for letting me know. I'll be adding her on to my blog roll again.

Eleven years of blogging? My gosh, I thought I've been around a long time - three blogs since 2011, guess I don't even come close!

Mark said...

Trump really can't stop winning. It's great to see an old blog come back. There are so many blogs that have come and gone in the time I've been around that I'd love to see come back. If only to find out what happened to the person behind them.

The Captain said...

Adding to my reading list.

Jono said...

Now I'm visiting Anne, too. I spent the first eighteen years of my alleged life in that neck of the woods.
