Resources on FuckYeahNorseMythology
A reminder for everyone that we have resources available!
First, we have a rather large Resources page. This is where you will find links to other blogs, websites, and downloadable or readable books about mythology, heathen spirituality and other important topics. If you have a resource to add to the page, feel free to drop it in the ask box. There is also a resources tag, which features many of the same things, pictures of book covers, and other things.
Because of the way that anglicized spellings vary so much, we have an entire page that lists the tags we use with clickable links. This way you can search for most terms quickly and easily. There is always the search bar if something you’re looking for isn’t in the tag list, too.
We have a FAQ page for the most common questions, so this is a great place to look for the answers to something you’re wondering about.
Lastly, if none of these were helpful to you, feel free to drop something in our ask box.
