The Other Side

The Other Side, my very first blog, is my little corner of cyberspace where I write about my experiences and thoughts on Witchcraft, Pagan Spirituality, the Paranormal, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and sometimes the interconnectedness of these topics, as well as my day-to-day family stuff here in Sydney, Australia.

The Other Side is Born ~ 25 August 2008

This blog was originally at, but I was eventually able to transfer it to a new url. The first theme I chose for this blog was “MistyLook”.


A New URL ~ 11 September 2008

The url I originally wanted — — was owned by somebody else, but they weren’t using their blog so I contacted them and they were happy to transfer the blog over to me. 🙂 Read more…

From “Parament” to “Publication” ~ 22 November 2015

The “Publication” theme uses the featured image for each blog post as the main feature on the home page, so the look of the blog changes each time a new post is added. 🙂 Here are 2 examples of how it looked…

From “Publication ” to “Baskerville2” ~ 1 September 2017

I’d been feeling dissatisfied with the look of this blog for a while, and had also lost interest in adding blog posts to it, so I was hoping another new new look might inspire me to write something. No such luck, lol, and I’m still not happy with the look, but that’s how it is at the moment.


Another slightly different look ~ 5 December 2017

Still trying to get the ‘right’ look for this blog …getting closer. 🙂 I changed the site logo from the old spectrum header to my slightly newer ‘Elements’ symbol — Air, Fire, Water, Earth & Spirit. The b&w photo of the beach at a Kiama caravan park I stayed at represents Sea, Land & Sky.


From “Baskerville2” to “Karuna” ~ 10 December 2017

Still obsessing over the look of this blog I changed the theme to Karuna, made a static page the front page and made a new custom menu to simplify navigation (well, at least I hope it makes things easier, lol). I wish I could get the ‘Recent Posts’ off the bottom of the front page as I don’t really need it now there’s a link to the ‘Blog’ in the menu, so who knows, maybe the theme might still change? Anyway, here’s a couple of screenshots of what it currently (10/12/17) looks like.
