Old English Wordhord is creating the Old English Word of the Day and Wordhord Book

I started tweeting the Old English Word of the Day back in November 2013. Over time I created a blog, a Facebook page, and finally this Patreon page, which features special content for subscribers on 'Wordhord Wednesdays'. What began as a distraction from writing my Ph.D. dissertation quickly became my passion. Breathing new life into this dead language (making it a zombie language?) became my goal.

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 university libraries, which are costly for those without affiliation to an academic institution.

If you would like to support my work, you have the chance to become a gold-gifa, a gold-giver or patron (pronounced "GOLD-yi-va). Whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated! And although it's nice to have ongoing support, one-time donations are also very much welcome, which you can do via PayPal: paypal.me/HanaVideen.

Þancas!
