A Few Newly Discovered Websites


I hope everyone had a good weekend! I've been insanely busy editing my thesis for the past several weeks, and it looks like this week will be the craziest so far.

Today I thought I'd introduce a couple of blogs that I've come across in the past couple of weeks.

The first is Owl's Farm. This blog is "Inspired by William Morris, the Farm consists a series of musings about utopia: eutopia, outopia, dystopia, and how to keep going amidst it all." I really enjoy reading Candace's thoughtful reflections on Morris (she's even written a News from Nowhere-inspired Utopian novel entitled More News from Nowhere, which she's made available free online).

Secondly, I recently discovered that the William Morris Society has a blog! They've only been online for a couple of months, but I'm sure that this will be a good site to get information on the latest William Morris/Arts and Crafts/Pre-Raphaelite related news.

Last, but by no means least, I just found Gillian's Reflections in the Afternoon yesterday. It is an absolutely lovely blog that I plan on visiting regularly! Be sure and check it out! I really enjoyed her April 30th post on The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
