Hi! My name is Talia. I see you’ve found my website. I write about books, literature, language, paganism, philosophy, writing, travel, school, and basically whatever falls under the various umbrellas of “Talia likes this” “Talia thinks this is important” “Talia knows a decent amount about this.” The content of this website falls into a few different categories, which I’ve outlined below.
My blog posting schedule has varied over the past almost two years that I have been running this website, but the current posting schedule is a minimum twice monthly post on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, but typically every Wednesday.
The categories of posts on my blog are quite eclectic, but the most prominent of them is my series of book reviews. You can read through the book reviews in isolation via clicking the ‘Book Reviews’ tab above, or by checking out the book reviews page for a comprehensive list.
Historically, many of my academic posts are a bit wibbly-wobbly in terms of content mostly as a result of my using the premise of whatever I was studying that week as fodder for a blog post. My most recent interest these days is in Comparative Religion, with a particular focus on Neopagan traditions. This was the combined topic of my Capstone and Proseminar papers my final semester of grad school, and the interest continues to linger.
This ties in well with my philosophical posts that are more reflective, where I muse about my theories about how the world works and our place in the universe, though some of these end up being very Talia-centric since my reflections tend to be very introspective.
Since I am also a huge nerd, I do make a fair share of posts that have to deal with the world of fandom and how we can think deeply and critically about the role of popular culture in our lives, often tying the topic in with the ideas of some of the previous posts.
On rare occasions I have guest writing on my website in the form of blog posts written by someone other than myself.
I have included a list of some places where my work has been published, as well as writing and Spanish to English translation samples. Some of the linked content are blog posts and some are papers that I completed while still a student.
