Top Ten Tarot by Hilary Blog Posts—2015 Wrap-Up Edition

The last time I did a top ten, it was at the end of 2012, reminiscing on the blogging year I was leaving behind.

Besides the realization of “gee, I should do that again!” I also learned that doing a top ten list is an excellent way to wrap up the year and go into the new year fresh, clean, and knowing exactly where you came from… so you know where you’re going! It was hard to choose my favorite blog posts, but I was able to do it based on site stats, general popularity, and which ones were my personal favorites to write. Without further ado…

10. Lessons from Boy Meets World and a Return to Regular Programming

Oh, reruns of Boy Meets World, can there EVER be enough of you? Me stumbling across the episode “Quiz Show” on MTV2 during a bout of procrastination yielded this blog post, all about investing time and energy in worthy pursuits (like my tarot business and my blogging) and less time used up by my addiction to Candy Crush.

A Shopping List for Readers Studio 2014

RS14_poster

Attending Readers Studio for me is akin to a big kid in a candy store. Last year’s Readers Studio I bought at least 2 Lenormand decks without even knowing the system. What will this year’s Readers Studio divination trend be? (Did you even know there were trends in divination, just like anywhere else?)

I’m starting to suss out my shopping list, and I want my clients’ help. After all, the decks and techniques I acquire at Readers Studio directly contribute to what I’m bringing to y’all all year long when you book a reading with me. So, if there is any particular deck that you are interested in, let me know! If it strikes my fancy too, I’ll certainly add it to my list. After all, you don’t get if you don’t ask!Continue Reading
