Wes hāl!

I started tweeting the Old English Word of the Day back in November 2013. Over time I created a blog, a Facebook page, an Instagram account, and finally this Patreon page, which features special content for subscribers on Wordhord Wednesdays. Breathing new life into this dead language (thereby making it a zombie language?) has became my passion.

Keeping up the Wordhord takes 2-3 hours each week. In addition to this, I've started writing an Old English Wordhord book, to which I'm devoting 20 hours a week. I hope to get the book published and I'm looking for a publisher. Currently the generous donations of people on Patreon or PayPal are my only income for this work. Additionally, research for these projects requires access to books and resources that can be costly for those without university affiliation.

If you would like to support my work, you have the chance to become a gold-gifa, a 'gold-giver' or patron (pronounced GOLD-yih-vah). Whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated. Even a dollar a month makes me feel the Old English love.
