Spiral Nature is now on Tumblr: spiral-nature.tumblr.com.
As a part of our commitment to exploring occulture, we want to make it easy for our readers to connect with others. So, Spiral Nature is now offering free directory listings for organizations, events, shops and services, websites and blogs, and more.
Once published listings will remain active for one year, after which they need to be reviewed by the listing owner to ensure the content remains up to date. Though please note that spam and listings which lack an occultural theme will be removed.
With the redesign we announced earlier in the month, Spiral Nature has also launched new advertising opportunities.
We’ve been around a long time. Spiral Nature officially went live on October 31st, 2000. That’s like forever in Internet time, but it’s only recently that we’ve begun to host advertising, and we’re pleased to offer the following ad placements:
- Branded background ads
- Header ad
- Large sidebar ads
- Small sidebar ads
- Newsletter ads

This is the third time in Spiral Nature’s history that the website has gone through a complete redesign.
The front page has a fancy new carousel, and highlights our four major sections: Magick, Spirituality, Culture, and Reviews. The category selection has been simplified to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. Consequently, our submission guidelines have also changed, as those of you who are on our newsletter already know.
The site’s tag line has been streamlined to “Exploring occulture.” It’s what we’ve been doing for 14 years, and
The News category refers to site news, where you’ll see updates like these about what we’re developing. There are a few more things you’ll see in the coming months, but I don’t want to overwhelm by rolling out everything at once.
What do you think of the new look? Love it, hate it? Let us know in the comments — oh yeah, we have comments now. Pretty nifty, eh?
