As most regular readers know, I attended the 2009 Northern New York Paranormal Expo. What most readers don’t know, is that The Magical Buffet was given the opportunity to have fliers out at the event. Suddenly needing to create fliers I found myself in a bit of a pickle, what on earth does a flier for The Magical Buffet have on it? I came up with the idea that maybe some of the awesome, creative, fabulous people who have contributed to The Magical Buffet would be willing to say what they like about The Magical Buffet and we’ll put that stuff on the fliers. My logic being that all those people are cooler than me, so other people would be duly impressed that those too cool people would say nice things about this less cool person.
Most everyone I asked responded enthusiastically. Honestly, I was caught off guard by the seemingly genuine affection that people had for myself and The Magical Buffet. Being a human, I obviously found myself going, well I LOVE this! I decided that I would post their kind words here, thinking that perhaps someone new to the website would go, well if that’s what all these cool people think, I should DEFINITELY read this blog regularly! Also, to be honest, I’m just so darn proud that I couldn’t resist publishing them here so I could brag some. Forgive me my pride.
As time goes on, perhaps I’ll collect more praise for The Magical Buffet. If I do, you’ll find it here.
“The Magical Buffet is one of my favorite online sites for eclectic wisdom, intriguing guests, and just plain fun. I’ve been known to occasionally put in an appearance there myself! You never know quite what will show up, but you always know it will be intelligent and interesting, and take a unique approach to the topic at hand. I give a big thumbs up to The Magical Buffet and the wonderful woman who created it!” – Deborah Blake, author of Circle, Coven & Grove: A Year of Magickal Practice (Llewellyn 2007), Everyday Witch A to Z: An Amusing, Inspiring & Informative Guide to the Wonderful World of Witchcraft (Llewellyn 2008), The Goddess is in the Details: Wisdom for the Everyday Witch (Llewellyn 2009), Everyday Witch A to Z Spellbook (Llewellyn 2010)
“The Magical Buffet is a web site that I look forward to reading every month. As a Druid I am always seeking for ways to get the world to understand the sacredness of the Earth and of trees. The Magical Buffet has become a major outlet for dispersing seeds of tree wisdom to the world. I would like to congratulate them on three years of service to the magical community and to the planet.” – Ellen Evert Hopman, author of “Priestess of the Forest: A Druid Journey”, “A Druids Herbal – Of Sacred Tree Medicine”, “Walking the World in Wonder – A Children’s Herbal” and other volumes.
“The Magical Buffet is a professionally-organized, well-pieced-together website of articles, interviews, reviews, and news pertinent to the Occult and Metaphysical world. This unique and creative site certainly lives up to its name! My recommendation: bookmark it immediately!” – Raven Digitalis, author of Shadow Magick Compendium and Goth Craft
“It took a brave woman to dare create a Magical Buffet online, but Rebecca’s offering truly delivers the promise in that wonderful name. It’s a consistent feast, where you can fill up on the fresh, the filling, the fascinating, the fragrant.
As a writer with nearly 40 years as a spiritual teacher, I’m not terribly easy to impress. But Magical Buffet delights me, teaches me, fills me every time.” – Rose Rosetree author of Cut Cords of Attachment
“What do you want out of a website? Don’t say “everything”. No one offers everything… Oh wait, you actually can say “everything”. The Magical Buffet actually does have everything. Religion? Check. Art? Check. Ghosts? Yep. How about politics? Oh yeah it’s there too and that’s just the beginning. Three years of the best observations of the world today culminate at the Magical Buffet. So grab a tray, mind the sneeze guard and immerse yourself in EVERY aspect of pop culture and life in the 21st century.” – Nick Valentino author of Thomas Riley
“It’s been exciting to witness The Magical Buffet’s growth, not just in terms of popularity, but also in breadth of coverage of important issues. Rebecca’s sharp observations, insight and crackling wit make this a uniquely entertaining and informative blog that really lives up to its name.” – Lynn Araujo Editor, U.S. Games Systems, Inc.
“The Magical Buffet – like its name implies – is a terrific smorgasboard of cutting-edge articles and information on how to read the signs of the times. As this century progresses and the unsustainable society in which we live starts to fall apart, it will become more and more exigent for people to learn how to listen to their own hearts and what our mother earth is trying to tell us (instead of the yada-yada nonsense emanating from society). The Magical Buffet is right up there in the forefront of the coming transformation in consciousness. Congrats on a great three years!” – Bob Makransky, Magical Almanac Ezine
