Every Wednesday I publish a Wordhord Wednesday blog post for my $5/month supporters on Patreon. I write about various topics that have to do with a word from the past seven days. Where does a word appear in Old English? How is it used? What’s its etymology? What modern words and place names are derived from it? Some posts include audio files of me reading from Old English texts, so you can hear how the words are pronounced and how they fit into the rhythm of the poetry.
Every 25th post is free for everyone to read, so you can get an idea of what Wordhord Wednesday is like. If you like what you read, consider becoming a Goldgifa on my Patreon page. You can donate as little as $1 per month to support the hours I put into the Wordhord every week.
