AnArtsNotebook by Bridget Eileen

An Arts Notebook, arts and culture blog posts from Bridget Eileen, since 2006

After college, where I was a style and arts reporter, I wanted a way to explore my diverse interests in arts and culture, from politics to poetry, Jane Austen to burlesque, communications to bibliophilia. I decided that the best way to do so was to create this website, An Arts Notebook.

Notebook Witch: Notes on Modern Witchcraft and Witchery - Bridget Eileen's main blog

In 2021, I started my latest blogging endeavor: It's a collection of notes on modern witchcraft and witchery. "Notebook Witch by Bridget Eileen" became my main blog, and An Arts Notebook became more of an archive blog. 

An Arts Notebook covers LOTS of topics, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Literature, Books, and Poetry
  • Entertainment, and the Performing Arts
  • Visual Art, Vintage Style Decor, and Crafts
  • Vegetarian Recipes and Foodie Things
  • Travel, Tourist Attractions, Museums, and other Cultural Sites
  • Bargain Hunting, Personal Finance, and Organization

In addition to new content, I have also posted archives of past entries from my now-retired blogs: 
  • In the Pines (2006-2008) - general, diary like blog posts, as one would find in the advent of blogs
  • Neophyte Poetics (2008-2010) - where I fleshed out my critical thesis on the close reading of poetry,  for my Master of Fine Arts degree
  • Bridget Eileen's Commonplace Book (2010-2018) - a compilation of news, notes, and other musings
  • Dreaming Bridge Designs (2008-2010) - featuring the handmade jewelry I made
