Pagan Travel Blogger

The Examiner blog network, which signed Murph Pizza to cover Paganistan, now has a Pagan travel writer, Paula Jean West.

Are we a niche market, or what?

Can you possibly be the Chas I knew in Fort Collins?

That depends how long ago it was. I am an FCHS graduate.

It IS you.
You might recall me...maybe not. I was one year ahead of you, came in my junior year from elsewhere...I worked on the newspaper, yearbook, creative writing class, etc. We used to talk politics, religion, everything, once in a while. I admired your intellect and appreciated the break from trying to fit in otherwise. Last name then was Peery.

It's actually "Murphy Pizza." You dropped the Y. She's covering "Paganistan" i.e. the unusually high neopagan population in Minneapolis/Saint Paul.

She has been known to go by "Murph" too, which is how I first encountered her.

Thank you so much for this post Charles S Clifton. I am delighted that the Examiner has me as their Pagan Travel Examiner. You can read my Pagan Travel Column at You are correct that this is niche publishing; it is unique because it is on non-Pagan, mainstream media--the Examiner's international webzine. I write to ask your help and support and the help and support of your own subscribers. So far, I have blown away the publishers of the Examiner with the figures produced by my little site about Pagan travel, sacred sites, festivals, and Pagan-oriented events. My goal is to keep on doing this every week, thus garnering the Pagan community that niche of respectability and increase of serious presence for which many of us long. I hope that you will all come visit my site, become subscribers, add comments, send me ideas for future columns, and join with me to promote Paganism in a positive way in mainstream media. You can reach me at my column or email me at

Brightest Blessings!
Paula Jean West
