As a lover of folklore and mythology, I really enjoy reading through posts and Tweets for Folklore Thursday. In light of this – and the great posts by Ronel on her blog Ronel the Mythmaker over here – I’ve decided to start a weekly blogpost series. This series will focus on different figures, elements, and creatures in the varied kaleidoscope that is the world’s folklore and mythology. I’ve also decided that, in order to lend some kind of format to the posts, I will do the posts in alphabetical order. I am also going to try and focus on those figures and creatures which aren’t that well known or much used in pop culture.

So, stay tuned for the next 26 weeks and travels through mythology and folklore every Thursday!

Next week’s post will be about:

  • Abandoned children
  • Aido-Hwedo
  • Amrita
  • Audhumla

For now you can check out this blogpost I did about some great mythology and folklore resources.
